Jilla, Vijay + Mohanlal's action masala entertainer is a usual Vijay movie which just delivers what it promises and even more. The plot is little different which cannot be guessed with the trailer so there was really something to offer on screen.
Mohanlal is a don, Vijay as his son who hates cops become a cop because his father wants him to be, then he turns against his father and tries to change his father into a good-man. How did he succeed is the story. 
Vijay's performance is not good in this. Even though the intro scenes and interval scenes excites while watching with his fans. Mohanlal looks good as a don, he gets that perfect Nayagan type don character, still he could have been used more effectively. That girl who comes as Vijay's sister has come in more scenes in this movie than in NSS in which she was the heroine. The other cast didn't have much to do. Sampath was good in quite few scenes, so directors other than Venkatprabhu also must use him. Soori was funny, but his role is too small to register. Imman's BGM was really good and his songs even though they are good makes the movie even bigger. 
Jilla's first and second half both were equally big and two songs could have been trimmed minimum. Something was missing in Vijay's performance, not as good as Thupakki even the comedy portions. Police uniform doesn't suit him at all, he looks so thin. This movie has all Tamil cinema template sentiment scenes in the second half, father sentiment, mother sentiment, sister sentiment, brother sentiment, etc. The cat and mouse sequence could have been developed in a much better way between Mohanlal and Vijay in the second half. Every time when I thought Mohanlal was about to do something, the scene finishes abruptly. The Sampath's twist were good, but it doesn't make you to getup and say wow.
Jilla is the (as) usual just another Vijay movie so it's like his hometown. The length of the movie could have been shorter and the screenplay could have been made much better in the second half and also the climax. Naeson you got two larger then life heroes, good music director and other technicians, you could have done a better job.
