The film begins with Muthuvel Pandian (Rajinikanth), a former jailer who lives happily with his family. His son Arjun (Vasanth Ravi) is an honest police officer who is investigating a high-profile case involving a notorious gang. One day, Arjun goes missing and Muthuvel learns that he was killed by the gang. However, he also discovers that there is more to the story than meets the eye. To find out the truth, Muthuvel decides to take matters into his own hands and confronts the gang leader Jackie (Jackie Shroff).
Rajinikanth is the main attraction of the film and he delivers a charismatic performance as Muthuvel. He showcases his style, emotion, and humour. He carries the film on his shoulders and makes it fun for his fans. Ramya Krishnan plays his wife and she has a strong presence. She supports him well. Mohanlal, Shiva Rajkumar, and Sunil make special appearances and add value to the story. Jackie Shroff plays the villain and he does a decent job.

Nelson Dilipkumar is a talented director who has made some impressive films in the past. He tries to present a new avatar of Rajinikanth in Jailer and he succeeds to some extent. He blends action, comedy, drama, and sentiment in the film and creates some engaging moments. He also pays tribute to Rajinikanth’s previous films and pleases the fans. However, he also falters in some aspects of the direction.
Anirudh Ravichander is one of the most popular music composers in Tamil cinema and he has composed some catchy songs for Jailer. The songs are well-placed in the film and suit the mood and the situation. The songs also feature some stunning visuals and choreography that enhance their appeal. The background score is also effective and complements the scenes well.
One of the highlights of Jailer is its action sequences that are thrilling and entertaining. The film has some high-octane stunts and fights that showcase Rajinikanth’s skills and charisma. The action scenes are well-choreographed and executed with style and flair. The film also has some chase scenes, explosions, gunfights, and hand-to-hand combat that keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The action scenes are also laced with humour and dialogue that adds to their fun factor. The action scenes are one of the main reasons to watch Jailer for Rajinikanth fans.
Jailer is a film that is made for Rajinikanth fans who want to see him in action and have fun. It is not a film that offers anything new or innovative in terms of story or execution. It is a typical masala entertainer that has moments of thrill and humour but also suffers from flaws and drawbacks. It is a film that can be watched once for Rajinikanth’s charisma and the cameos of other stars.
