'Puli' Movie Review: Live Audience Response

The day millions of Vijay's fans have been waiting for is finally here. Ilayathalapathy's "Puli" has hit the screens on Thursday, 1 October, despite facing some last-minute hurdles over financial issues.  
"Puli" comes as a welcome change for Vijay fans, who are used to his action-oriented masala films. The latest movie belongs to the fantasy-adventure genre and the actor has not done this kind of movie earlier. 
The trailer and other promotional materials have promised to deliver a full-fledged fantasy movie with rich and high quality visuals. It has certainly captured the audience's imagination even though critics have found some striking resemblances with Hollywood flicks.
The movie has an ensemble cast. While Vijay plays the main lead in the flick, Kannada superstar Kiccha Sudeep plays the role of an antagonist and yesteryear sensation actress Sridevi Kapoor essays an important role too.
Shruti Haasan and Hansika Motwani are the two female leads in the flick, which has been written and directed by Chimbu Deven. Vijay's former manager PT Selvakumar has graduated to the role of a producer with "Puli". He has collaborated with Shibu Thameens to bankroll the project, which is made with the budget of above Rs 100 crore.
Below, we bring you the audience response to the movie:

#Puli: Pretty average first half. Vijay excels in his choreography. Shruti Haasan is killing with her costumes . Story yet to engage.
Rajasekar Tweeted
#Puli - After #Sura , a wishy washy film from Vijay. Ponderous ride with a lifeless story
#Puli - Appalling movie with a clichéd backdrop. Quotidian execution by Chimbu Devan, pity that Vijay has selected this script.
#Puli - Sridevi's character is yet to be revealed. Hope the pace gets accelerated . Second half will be the key!
#Puli first half - Movie moves at a leisure pace. VFX is too good, Vijay as usual steals the show. Waiting for the second half!!

There were #Vijay films, now comes the film which has @actorvijay Happy about my favorite star transcending :-* #Puli
Loving the production design in #Puli Kudos to #Muthuraj for his efforts!
Beautifully sequenced opening song in #Puli loved the choreography and the shot division. Samma package.
A decent first half with just few glitches. @actorvijay has definitely experimented by being a submissive part of a complete package. #Puli
Not forgetting the graphics in #Puli? Not bad at all. #Lilliput portions include cute creativity and frolics by the sidekicks ;)
#Vedalam frst came through #Puli or through #Thala's title? Adutha kozhi Motta sanda. I wonder y this happens. We guys shud maintain harmony
Adventure-fantasy goes full throttle with a solid story. @actorvijay does the needful while songs test the patience. #Puli
@shrutihaasan is definitely Brahma's best work. Her flawless beauty embellishes #Puli

Time for #Vijay to reunite with ARM. Give us Thuppaki 2 or something along the lines. Still think #Thuppaki is Vijay's best in recent times.
#Puli is Sura part 2 made on a lavish budget. It's much worse than I expected it to be. A nightmare I can't describe in words.
#Puli interval. Hope the best is reserved for the second half. Barring few good moments, hardly anything happens in the first half.
Karthick Sampath ‏Wrote#Puli- Below average 1st half n above average 2nd half makes an average entertainer. CG at it best in few scenes, worst in few. 2.75/5
#Puli Second half did what, it lacks in first half. Dnt expect too much. 2.75/5.

#‎Puli‬ First half - Kudos to Ilayathalapathy for trying to do experimental script. Has Simbu Devan done justice to him? Only second half will answer that question.
#Puli First half - Ilayathalapathy goes to Vedhalam's fort to save his wife Shruthi Haasan
#Puli - Ilayathalapathy has believed Chimbudevan with experimental script, but he has absolutely done no justice to him or the budget
