Ajith does not have a special name in this film. Underworld don Ajith, known by various names like Dark Devil, Chief, Michael Jackson, forms a team called Dark Devil. Kanmani (Manju Warrier) is a key member of his team. The dark devil team.. headed by Krish (John Kokken) has to rob your bank. A scam of Rs.25 thousand crores will emerge in that background. What does the bank actually have to do with the dark devil? Why did Ajith have to become the dark devil? The rest of the story is the circumstances that led to that.
A man hijacking a bank.. The police trying to catch him.. In this sequence, the flashback story of the hero is revealed in many movies. Vijay’s Beast movie will also be more or less like this. If the entire story takes place in a shopping mall, the ‘cutting’ takes place in a bank. It seems that just the place has changed. Like the same beast, Ajith is seen in the same dress from the beginning to the end of the film.
If you go to the theaters to watch a movie like Pandenkodi on Sankranti, it feels like Diwali is ringing. From the starting to the ending, the sound of guns and bombs keeps ringing. Ajith Kumar shows a strong ‘cut’ with various guns. Ajith is the head master of action elements. Ajith is doing action episodes like the taste of Roti Pachdi, the more you watch it, the more you want to watch it. Ajith’s performance is so stylish. Ajith also mesmerized with his stylish performance in Tegimpu. His mannerisms, mass elements, action episodes are amazing. Ajith danced and whistled like Michael Jackson.
But no matter how much the protagonist shows ‘cutness’, it seems that there is no proper stuff in the story in this movie. Each director has a different style of storytelling. Our director Rajamouli introduces the characters by showing the story like Chandamama’s story. The taking of Shankar and Murugadoss in Tamil is almost the same. But H Vinoth’s style is different. First he sets the characters and then goes into the story. The film ‘Tegimpu’ is also similar. But after the interval.. he does not touch the story. Introducing the story in the second half. Originally, in this film, Ajith was confused as to whether he was a hero or a villain.
He made a good effort by adding an action episode to the social message story of bank robbery, but the director struggled in telling the story properly. The screenplay in particular is confusing. There is a feeling that the story has missed the soul of the action episodes. As the story of ‘Tegimpu’ moves forward… it keeps on running… but the destination of the story is all confusing. The social message given at the end is also unclear.
Ajith played a good role as a fraud police officer. Also.. Samudrakhani impressed as a commissioner. Manju Varrier has a scope role in the story. Manju Warrier is amazing in the action sequence. John Kokken also got a good character. Technically Gibran rang the bell with the background score. The gunfire continues. The highlight of the movie is the ship fight in the sea at the climax. Boney Kapoor spared no expense as a producer. Budgets are poured for action episodes. In addition to that, the output also looks very rich. Cinematographer Nirav’s work is the main strength of ‘Tegimpu’.
Overall.. Ajith’s ‘Tegimpu’ was a hit at the box office but.. it has to be said that the resound is not much. It is ok till Tamil fans but it is difficult to win box office in Telugu. Because.. Veera Simha Reddy, Waltheru Veeraiya, Varasudu movies are in the ring. Ajith was not seen in ‘Tegimpu’, but the stuff was enough to compete with them.
