Beast Movie Review: Fans hail Thalapathy Vijays action thriller as Blockbuster
Beast Movie Review

When Beast was initially revealed, the most thrilling aspect was the chance to see director Nelson and Vijay work together for the first time. Nelson makes a quantum leap to attempt something incredibly ambitious with Vijay, who is unquestionably one of the country's top actors, after making a strong impression with films like Kolamavu Kokila and Doctor. Beast, a Die Hard-inspired invasion thriller, is Nelson's attempt to go large in terms of vision and scope, but it's marred by sluggish scripting.

The film begins in Kashmir, where Veeraraghavan (Vijay), an R&AW officer, has spent three months preparing for a mission. The Indian government decides at the last minute to cancel the mission, but Veera decides to go forward with the original plan, despite his own employers' orders. He completes the operation successfully, but the experience leaves him psychologically wounded, causing him to leave the military and return home permanently. He finds himself in the middle of a hostage crisis a few months later. He and his girlfriend are imprisoned in a mall while terrorists demand the release of their commander (who was initially kidnapped by Veera).

Team Beast ramped up their promotional efforts ahead of the Nelson Dilipkumar-directed film's release, while the film's crew snatched some minutes for themselves. The whole cast and crew of the film recently had a joyous journey around Chennai in Vijay's Rolls-Royce Ghost to celebrate co-star Aparna Das' birthday a day before the film's premiere. The video is going viral on the internet, and viewers are loving watching the entire cast having a good time.

Beast also features Selvaraghavan, Yogi Babu, Lilliput Faruqui, and Ankur Ajit Vikal, in addition to Thalapathy Vijay and Pooja Hegde. Beast's box office receipts have been extraordinarily high in a number of countries, with the picture apparently breaking box office records in the United States and Australia, among other locations. In this action thriller, Vijay plays Veera Raghavan, a RAW agent.
