Suriya’s Anjaan is an action-packed thriller that begins at Kanyakumari with stunning introduction of super cool and classy Raju Bhai [Suriya]. As Anjaan is a gangster flick set in Mumbai, Raju Bhai and his gang speaks a lot of Hindi dialogues during the first ten minutes. Then comes Chandru [Vidyut Jammwal], Raju Bhai’s partner in crime and Jeeva [Samantha], Raju Bhai’s love. However, there are set of goons to fight with Raju Bhai and here is a big surprise for you in the form of interval bang. In the second half enters Raju Bhai’s brother Krishna [Suriya in dual role] with a hand stick. Krishna seeks the revenge of Raju Bhai’s death. After few predictable twists watch Anjaan in theaters for climax…


Suriya has re-lived his roles as a handsome, good looking, revenge seeking young man after Ghajini. His dialogue delivery, dance also singing when comes to Anjaan are master piece. On the whole it is Suriya all over Anjaan.

Samantha is glamorous. All the romantic portions between Suriya and Sam are feast to watch on screen. They have danced well and all the songs are colourful.

Vidyut Jammwal and his team have performed well. Their correct lip-sink for Tamil dialogues is subjected to perfection.

Soori was not offered much length, but he has done his parts well. Others namely Brahmanandam, Rajpal Yadav, Manoj Bajpai, Dalip Tahil are okay.

Technical Analysis:

Director Lingusamy has made a colorful and acceptable film with very routine story. Screenplay could have been better to keep audiences hooked.

Yuvan Shankar Raja has delivered out of the box scores. While Anjaan songs are already chart-busters, background is fresh and kick-ass. Yuvan’s BGM has taken Anjaan to next level.

Anjaan has fantastic visuals. Santosh Sivan’s camera works are the one to watch out for. Professionalism is evident in every frame of Suriya’s Anjaan. Especially, the action sequences and songs are well captured.

Editing by Anthony could have been better. As the length is one of the barriers for Anjaan. Trimming is suggested.

UTV and Thirupathi Brothers have to be lauded for high production values and good promotions for Anjaan and Sikander in Telugu.


Anjaan is a neatly pictured film with a predictable script. Little more concentration on the screenplay and twists along with the appropriate placement of songs could have been worked well with Anjaan.

Anjaan starts with a good pace, but slows down by the end of first half after plotting the characters. Interval is a bang and the climax could have been better after bearing many fight sequences in the second half and passable first half.

Suriya’s Anjaan may not be a pick from the lot for family audiences, as there are plenty of action sequences.
