A few words from Thyagarajan at the movie sets in Thiruvannamalai:
"This movie has been shot on a massive scale. Viewers can easily sense the abundant speculation made in this movie, which revolves round a love story.
For instance, a Rs 2 crore worth realistic set was created, that of a sea, with the song "Mayajalam manthran seyyum gettikaran naan.Ettu thikkum pattai kilappum getti kaaran naan" featuring Prashanth and Simran. The dance troop comprises of models from Mumbai! And Prashanth had to go to Hong Kong to do some bodybuilding as the movie looked-for Prashanth with a good physique. An action scene in Hyderabad required 2000 side artists. This is the first time that such colossal scenes have been taken in Tamil Cinema. Also featuring in this movie are Raj Kiran, Seetha, Ponnambalam and others well known in the Cine field.
This is the first time that I am featuring along with Prashanth. There is a fight scene between Prashanth and me. Banupriya performs the role of my wife in this movie.
We will be moving on to the fight scenes, which will be shot in Hongkiong and Mumbai, and the song scenes in Italy, Mexico, Venice and Africa after the completion of the movie by 15th of this month. "Jai" will be released for Pongal".
He even said that though 'Jai' is taking quite a long time for completion, it is anticipated to be out and successful by Pongal.
Oh yes! The message is already conveyed in the song! "Ettu thikkum pattayai kilappum gettikaaran naan".

I give the movie 0.5 out of 4 stars.
They spent 2 Crores on a song sequence...Mexico, Venice, Africa...for what? It is a good thing movie makers like Maniratnam and Kamalhassan still exist. Otherwise I would completely give up viewing Tamil movies.
He had to go to Hongkong to do some bodybuilding...Why? He doesn't look any different than he did in his last movie. He could have still spent that training effort in India and gotten better results. Just look at where newcomer Dhanush stands and we all know he doesn't have as much of a physique as Prashanth does.
If Prashanth needs to be successful, he should concentrate on plot development rather than appeal to the masses with over-the-top lavish spending. For instance, he shone in the movie 'Tamil'. Better luck next time!

Big freaking whoop, a song sequence in various countries. Jeans and E20U18 had those. If that's what they're bragging about, the film can't be very good.
