At first, #LokeshKanagaraj had only written the story idea of #Kaithi and he had approached several other directors across Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam to direct the movie for him. Below were their responses !

#Atlee-"This hero who is coming out of prison, his dad, his brother, his son-all would be played by Vijay. When Vijay faces one set of villains, he can bet with them over a 1x11 football match. We will discuss the rest tomorrow. I am actually renting and watching few CDs tonight"
Shankar - "We have to plan 2 years on the 4 songs to be made - the locations, sets etc . For the screenplay, this hero will have a flashback where 4 villains are behind the reason he is in jail. He will return from jail and kill these 4 guys in sequence like my other movies"

I never thought I will tell this for a #Vijay-#Atlee movie, but I ended up liking #Bigil. One of the main reasons is the characterization of Rayappan ( older Vijay) and how Vijay approaches this role. (1)
In the best scene in #Bigil, Rayappan tries to convince Sharma(Jackie Shroff) to pick his son for the football team and explains how a son doesn't have to suffer for his father's doing. Atlee has a tendency to go overboard at time. But there was a subtlness and restraint here.(2)
Vijay on the other hand shines in perhaps his first really different role that he has done in a long while, bringing in variations in both body language and mannerisms. Atlee's writing once again takes inspirations from lot of movies, but there is an improvement this time (3)
