There square measure ton of expectations among everybody on this film directed by Atlee. Starring Nayanthara as the female lead, this film could be a mass industrial film that touches some serious problems like girls authorisation, corruption in sports Etc… Lets Move Into Detail review.


Rayappa (Vijay) could be a native goon Who fights for the justice of individuals in his Place. He does not need his son Micheal (Vijay) to follow his footsteps and encourages him to be a athlete. however things cause Micheal seizing his father’s place.

After few years, circumstances force him to enter the soccer court he left once more however now as a coach to women’s squad. however will Micheal manage to drive his team to ending and handle his enemies at constant time forms the crux of the story.

Screenplay and Analysis:

Atlee who is thought for delivering mass entertainers that satisfy everybody has done it another time. He used the demi god image of Vijay to most potential and has given ample goosebumps moments for his fans to hold dear. Whenever there’s a uninteresting moment within the film, he followed it up with Associate in Nursing elevation scene to bring back the film on target. This film could be a grand respect to Vijay’s uncomparable craze.

Despite line to Vijay’s fans, the film was able to showcase the emotions pretty convincing manner. The sub-plots involving 2 players within the team were handled alright. Atlee proves his caliber another time in dealing emotional and dramatic sequences as they’re the one that connects with you amid all the massy moments.

On the flipside, the film takes its own sweet time to unfold because the half seems to be dragging sometimes. The logic goes for a toss very similar to each star hero film. tho’ folks have gotten accustomed it, scenes like stopping the CM’s convoy and blasting a police vehicle before of the station itself and walking enter slow-motion at the top of it’s excess of the highest. the largest disadvantage of the film is that the lack of sturdy antagonist as there’s nobody to challenge the hero. tho’ there square measure ample fight scenes, the rationale behind them seems silly sometimes. Also, Atlee has gone overboard in jutting Vijay as his fans wished and Telugu folks might realize it a small amount unconvincing. The soccer episodes ought to are handled with a lot of legitimacy. The climax parts cue you of ‘Chak Diamond State India’ despite the drama figuring out.

If you’ve got no downside managing some Tamil nativity and lag here and there, ‘Whistle’ will certainly entertain you.


This is fully a Vijay film and he carries the whole film on his shoulders with ease. he’s at his usual best whereas delivering mass dialogues and bashing the rowdies with a swag of his own. He shows his acting superior skill in elder role and in sentimental scenes. His histrionics are over dramatic sometimes.

Nayanthara appearance nice and performs well in an exceedingly transient however impactful role. Her chemistry with Vijay looked sensible onscreen. Jackie Shroff was wasted on a task of zero substance. the feminine actresses who acted as soccer players looked apt for his or her several roles. the remainder of the solid enclosed a great deal of Tamil actors and that they were okay.


The film is made on the technical front. GK Vishnu deserves special appreciation for his tremendous work together with his lens. He showcased the film in impressive lighting and visuals looked nice onscreen. Production style is nice because the native Place sets the few others were crafted with a great deal of prowess. soundtrack work is good tho’ few Tamil names and boards weren’t replaced. Music by AR Rahman is pretty average and none of the songs gets registered however his background score elevated several scenes and causes you to invested with. redaction by Ruben leaves a great deal to be desired because the film moves at slow pace and a few scenes may are cut off within the half. Producer spent a great deal on this film and it’s quite visible.

Coming to director Atlee, he played  it safe by line to Vijay’s fans. He conferred him alright and conjointly handled the emotional threads convincingly. He positively is aware of a way to build a star hero film with good content. But, he generally left the story behind and targeted on his hero. Also, the playscript is sort of slow and bound scenes were dragged unnecessarily. Had he taken care of it the film would are an almost good industrial person.

Bottom Line:

Predictable Sports Drama With A Nice Message

Rating: 3/5
