David Billa [Ajith], a Srilankan Refugee with totally injured body and facing troubles in the refugee camp enters India to seek refuge. Meanwhile enters Jasmine (Parvathy Omanakuttan) feels pity for the situation of David Billa and finally falls for him. Acquainted with the rough life of Refugee camp, David slowly begins the transformation into a dreaded gangster from a common lad from Srilanka. Thereby enters our villain Abbasi (Sudhanshu Pandey) and Sameera (Bruna Abdullah) along with him. David takes high risks in with every new project assigned to him and finally David Billa snaps the control over entire network after Sudhanshu’s death. How did David Billa turn to a gangster from a refugee? How did he acquire the control over all the networks forms the crux of Billa 2.


Ajith steals the show with his outstanding performances as a refugee and gangster Billa, especially the punch dialogues uttered by Ajith getting accolades. Everyone might have used a body double for the stunts, but Ajith did it all by himself, especially the flight action sequences.

Yuvan Shankar Raja appears in the end as a gangster and has performed his parts well.

Glam dolls Parvathy Omanakuttan and Bruna Abdullah looked glamorous on screens and but has nothing much in terms of performance. Parvathy doesn’t live up to the hype while Bruna Abdullah looks ravishing and the scenes where she flaunts her bikini are sure to please the male populaces.

Vidyut Jamwal is the side villain and performed well showing off his muscles in the fighting sequences. Sudhanshu Pandey has given his best as the main villain but has very less to perform compared to Vidyut.

Technical Analysis:

Chakri Toleti has etched the characters poorly and the screenplay was a bit slow in the first half, but it is the second half which is convincing with the heavy stunts by Ajith.

The film has been lavishly produced without any compromises and the movie has come out richly.

Yuvan Shankar Raja has already proved his mettle with the refreshing music album of David Billa and has given apt background scores for the movie along with his cameo performance as the gangster.

Cinematography by RD Rajasekhar was at its best, while editing by Suresh Urs could have been better. Dialogues are poorly penned.


David Billa, the first prequel in Indian film Industry is completely a gangster flick with the plot of a common man turning to a gangster David Billa. David Billa is one of the big-budget films with lavishness but no content. Chakri Tholeti failed in its content despite having star like Ajith in the lead.

Characters and the plot are established in the first half, while the tempo is slow in the second half but he managed with the finely choreographed action sequences.

Davi Billa has loads of style but unwanted scenes takes the audiences to the boredom and the climax helicopter fight scene directed by different stunt masters has not reached to the hype created before.

Final Verdict:

Stylish but a weak script and poor presentation plays spoilsport…
