Meanwhile, different people, all related to medical profession gets killed and Bhargav is believed to have committed these murders and even gets arrested.

Who is Vijay ? Why he targets medical mafia ? Who is Dalapathi ? Watch the film for more.
AR Rahman's songs aren't impressive enough. But the background score is excellent. The cinematographer captures the beauty of countryside well and the visuals are splendid. The way Atlee handled the script is very good. The action scenes were good. The film has good emotions and the credit goes to the director for extracting the best from the actors. The production values are very good. The dubbing was good.
Vijay pulls off the three roles very well. He has worked hard for the film and shows variations very well. His performance, especially in the role of village head is excellent. Nitya Menen gets a good roles and she gives her best. Samantha and Kajal get forgettable roles. SJ Suryah once again gives a very good performance as the villain.
Some lengthy sequences
Clearly, the story of 'Adirindhi' has been inspired by some films like 'Vichitra Sahodarulu'. But the way Atlee narrates some crucial episodes was very impressive. The young director once again impresses with his command over the craft. But he seems to have been influenced by Shankar, his guru, and it was apparent. Vijay pulls off the three roles very well. The magic tricks are a treat to watch. The film looks grand. The visuals are rich and the background score complements the proceedings well. Except for some lengthy sequences, unimpressive songs the film is very good. The GST dialogues, which created controversy, have been muted out. All in all, the film is a good commercial entertainer with a message.
