The first look photos and working stills of Vijay’s upcoming Thalaivaa have just been released. Our first impression is that the Ilayathalapathy looks much as he did in Thuppakki

In any case, Vijay is not known for changing his looks significantly from film to film. His boyish charm and energy are a trademark in almost all of his roles in his full-on commercial flicks.

These images are from the shooting schedule in Australia and we can only guess that some scenes featuring Vijay and the film’s heroine Amala Paul have been shot in Sydney. Santhanam also plays a key role in the film.

Thalaivaa is being directed by Vijay who earlier made the acclaimed Deiva Thirumagal and Madrasa Pattinam. We’ll have to wait and watch if Thalaivaa becomes a hit or not. Given the sway actor Vijay holds over his fans, that seems quite a distinct possibility.
