*** This review may contain spoilers ***
I was Dumbstruck when I saw this movie at theater. M.Raja has indeedgrown a long way from being a ‘remake’ director to his ‘own make’director. The base script is usual one – good vs bad. But the way ithas been scripted especially the bad part, deserves standing ovation!
Aravind Samy – dashing stylish villain is everyones favorite and hedoesn’t disappoint you ! This villain is very unique! He didn’t lay hishand on the protagonist at all! not even for a single shot. He carriedthe bad role in a subtle but powerful manner! You will surely fall inlove with this character!
Thambi Ramayyah – humour is different from comedy and he is the trumpcard in this movie who keeps on giving us some enjoyable part with hisinnocence.
Jayam Ravi – He worked very hard for this movie! It is evident from theword go itself. This is a tailor made role for him and he did exceedthe expectations.
Atlast, Raja – scripting a detailed cop thriller with pacey screenplayis very difficult and he succeeds very much here!
Very good movie after Thuppaki which should be watched in theaterspurely for its excellence in story telling!
This is a smartly made movie though not a genius film!
Kudos to the whole team! Very happy to watch a very good thriller.
A well enacted thriller with a racy screen play portrays the warbetween the good and the bad (evil). Jayam Ravi’s brother DirectorM.Raja has given so many hits but most of them would be remakes ofsuccess films in Telugu. This time he has took quite time to pen hisstory and screenplay after his last venture Velayudham starting Vijaywhich has worked quite well even though the basic concept is the samecat and mouse game. Corruption, Corporate mafia, underworld,Pharmaceutical Company’s illegal research, Goons, Strict and straightforward IAS, IPS officers working with anti corruption motto, realisticfight with corporate Dons, A Solo Hero with a vision and a supportivelead lady some of the keywords that can describe this movie’s plot. Theultimate show stopper of the movie was the performance of theantagonist played by none other than the yester year’s charming heroAravind Samy. He plays Siddharth Abimanyu a suave middle aged notoriousscientist and has lifted the role to a different level with hischarisma in a sophisticated set up. His comeback as a good heartedpriest didn’t work out in Kadal but sure this negative role will be abreak through character in his career. Mithran (essayed by Jayam ravi )is the best cop ever who shadows his aim case and moves exactly withhis supporting team of friends. Mahima (played by the beautiful duskyNayantara) who is head over heels with Mithran supports him with herskills. The overall love sequences seemed sensible and mature didn’tbore us with instant dream sequences except the one and only song whichwas bearable. Other than these leads we have Nasser, Thambi Rammaiah(don’t know how many movies he will play the same innocent characterwith the same tone), Vamsi Krishna, Ganesh Venkat Ram, Jay Prakash,Mugdha Godse (of the Hindi movie Fashion fame). On the technical bitlike cinematography, editing, BGM, Arts was in place and gave what wasneeded for a script like this. Except a bit on editing would have madeit look perfect. At times it would make you feel and compare portionswith Kakha kakha and similar cop movie series, plus Ramana, Nimirndhunil, E, Thupakki etc Verdict: A good thriller with an over shadowedantagonist which is the current trend where villain takes over easily.
Go and watch this in theater. Mohan Raja made Tamil movies one stephigher. All the characters have done their best. Jayam Ravi catches allthe people’s attention in each and every second of the movie.Nayanthara’s best movie I can say. She did a wonderful acting. Each andevery second of the movie went thrilling and I sat on the edge of theseat while watching. Villain was amazing. BOSS OF THE OTHER VILLAINS INTAMIL CINEMA. Only few comedies but nice one. Don’t miss it.You canwatch this movie more than 10 times. It is also the best police basedmovie. There are so many amazing twists in the movie. Best movie of thedecade.
Excellent movie. Enjoyed the thriller and saw a very good tamil filmafter a long time…Great acting by Arvind and Ravi…Credit should begiven to director Raja..Good concept and well narrated with nodeviation..Raja should continue to do straight films, even if it takesa year.
Talking of music, just loved ”kaadhal cricket” song and the awesomevoice of the singer. The last song was also good and peppy. Hope thiswill change the attitude of most of the tamil directors, as long as thestory is good and well narrated, it will be a big hit. This alsoproves, a movie with unrealistic scenes and characters can besuccessful and in fact hugely successful movie. Big kudos to the entireThani Oruvan team. All the best..
As we all witnessed during the past 10 days or so, ‘Thani Oruvan’ gotrave reviews and has been accepted by the film industry and audience asa benchmark movie. There is a transition happening in the Indian movieindustry; that is driven by the audience. Today movie goers are wellaware of the worldly events. The life-cycle of audience taste is short,meaning audience preference is undergoing change at a higher rate thanever before. The typical romance movie is no longer going to pull theaudience. It had been already exploited by the uncountable number ofmovies in all the possible formats. So what is next? That is called‘Thani Oruvan’ way! – A strong theme, embedded with authentic data &logic.
How it all started? Way back in 2013, director Mr. Mohan Raja met witha group of consultants from Fhyzics Business Consultants Pvt. Ltd.,specializes in business consulting and business analysis (An EEP ofInternational Institute of Business Analysis, Canada and REP ofInternational Requirements Engineering Board, Germany). By that time,Mr. Raja was thinking about the story for at least 3 years. The onequestion he asked the group of consultants was ”I want to make themovie authentic and different, how you could contribute?” Fhyzics wasalso looking for opportunities to explore the movie industry.Subsequently, Fhyzics team met the director few times and demonstratedhow they can make it different. It clicked, and Fhyzics got its maidenmovie project.
The assignment given to Fhyzics team is data and logic research for themovie project. The team researched the IPS training, minute-by- minutedaily routines of IPS probationers and officers, costumes, usage ofwords & terminologies, technologies, background, analysis methods etc.The team also did intensive research on crimes both at national andinternational level from 1990 onwards to till-date. Organized thecrimes under different heads and drawn the linkages. Prepared crimecharts, time-to-time emotional graphs, hero vs. villain rise & fallmaps etc. Even Fhyzics created a PPT that was presented to theproducers by Mr. Raja to give them a holistic view of the movie.Massive amount of data and information were collected, organized inSharePoint (a Microsoft technology), then distilled and presented onweekly basis to the director for the entire duration of the moviemaking and it has been judiciously consumed in the movie withoutaffecting the entertainment element of it. At Fhyzics, we profoundlythank Mr. Raja for the opportunity and helping us in launching ourservices in the movie industry with this landmark movie, ‘ThaniOruvan’.

Right from beginning to end all looks good in the movie.
Arvind Swamy acting is awesome.
However one small thing looks impractical.
Mithran friend Jana despite being an IPS officer uses a motorcycle tohandover SD card and does not have a jeep or car.
In current generation even a Police Inspector uses jeep to catchcriminals.
If Jana was using jeep, the story would have been more different.
Cent percent worth the expectations,Mohan Raja’s Thani Oruvan puts anend to the long wait for a neat thriller from Kollywood and deliverstwo memorable characters Mithran I.PS and Siddharth Abhimanyu,portrayedby Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swami respectively.
A brilliantly crafted thriller with intelligent screenplay and terrificnarration,Thani Ourvan is a delightful original offering from Rajawho’s know for remaking successful films from other languages downsouth.The screenplay by director himself and the writer duo Subhaframed upon the cat and mouse chase between protagonist and the villainis immensely stylish and substantial,being successful in gainingattention of the viewers who gets to be a part of the proceedings.
There isn’t a single dull moment in around 160 minutes of the runningtime and leaving aside some minor glitches,Thani Oruvan stands out asone of the best thrillers ever produced in Kollywood for its racyscript,powerful and meaningful dialogues,lack of unwanted elementsaimed at masses,the brilliant performances and strong technicalperfection.Unlike many thrillers produced in the recent past,theromance portions were well-written and Raja deserves a special applausefor handling it convincingly so that it never turn a stumbling block inthe thrills offered by the enthralling fight between the hero and thevillain.
Jayam Ravi has comeup with a top-notch performance as the protagonistMithran IPS and showcases his mettle in handling intense roles withease.Expecting more such roles from him rather than disappointing oneslike Shakti from ‘Sakalakala Vallavan Appatakkar’. Casting AravindSwami as the suave,intelligent and cool antagonist worked out wondersand he stole the show with his matured act.Arvind’s character SiddharthAbhimanyu will be long-remembered as one of the best villainousportrayals in the history of tamil film industry.Welcome Back Swami!!Choose Wisely and you are here to stay !! <3 Thambi Ramaiah managed toevoke laughs with his hilarious portrayal of Sengalvarayan.Nayan Tharaas the heroine was convincing in a neatly written role and pulled offher part really well.The supporting cast that includes RahulMadhav,Ganesh Venkatraman etc were good.
Music and score by Hip-Hop Tamizha were effective and gave more depthto the narration.All the songs were perfectly placed and avoidingunnecessary item songs and other unwanted numbers proved good fortightening the screenplay.Frames by Rajaji were slick and cuts by GopiKrishna were neat.
Overall,Thani Oruvan is a stylish and captivating thriller,a must watchthis season.
Verdict:: Mind-blowing performances from Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamibacked up with a taut screenplay,technical brilliance,powerfuldialogues and and an energetic score makes Thani Oruvan an easyaddition to the list of best thrillers to come-out from Kollywood tilldate.Don’t miss this one from theatres,Period!! Un Yedhiri Yaar EndruSol..Nee Yaar Endru Solgiren B-)
There are so so many things that could have been done better, but heylet me take the time to say a great step in the right direction. If youare someone who is not willing to be emotionally indulged and love asocial subject with a bit of typical cinematic stuff, then yes this isit, you may not get many such movies please watch.
Personally I would like movie makers to control the itch to add theartificial fights and the out-of-screenplay songs. Imagine the depth ofthe movie without those and a bit more of logical screenplay wow, thenwe are talking of a masterpiece.
But it was a genuinely good feeling coming out of the movie and yes noteveryone in the audience would enjoy a total logical package so I thinkits a class 1 entertainer and Arvind Swamy and Ravi have doneexceedingly well. The lead actress Nayanthara to her credit alsosupports very well to the plot.
This would be my first ever reviews/ comments in IMDb, though am aregular user I found this time for this movie I should give somereviews here.
Totally fantastic picturization and a very strong script. Enjoyed theflow how the director taken us from the beginning till the end. A hugebreak for all the cast and crew of this movie. Mohan Raja proved thebest of his talent and Music/ BGM by Hiphop Tamilzha Aadhi is awesometoo.
Best movie scene… – When child Sidharth Abhimanyu speaking of thedeal for his father to take the blame from Naser. – When SidharthAbhimanyu got shot by his lover and lying on lap of Jayam Ravi with thelast dialog was simply superb.
Worth of every penny!
The Last time when I was spell bound by watching a movie was aHollywood One. This one deserves a top notch applause right from theword ‘go’.
Here, during the movie, you sit at the edge of your seat pondering whatwould happen next.
This is how a class movie must be.Every small thing fitted rightly inits place, with absolute no nonsense scenes, well that’s what anexemplary movie should be.
I could go on and on heaving praises for this movie. Excellent overallperformance, racy screenplay, top notch directing and impeccabledialogues.
If you expect a lot of love scenes from a movie or off track songs orbodies getting thrown off without a damn reason, then this is seriouslynot your movie.
Imagine a cop, who keeps a SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable (?),Realistic, Time bound) goal to demolish one bigwig criminal in hislifetime and secretly maintains a R&D center to study the latter. Hehas a skill developed since his childhood to read media news betweenthe lines and strongly believes every small-time crime news itemappearing has at its back hidden an organised crime. His skills ofreading between lines, connecting the dots & of course the never dyingpassion, brings him into the battleground with one Siddarth.
Also imagine a criminal, who plans more on covering himself from thecrimes he masterminds, than on the crime itself. He is one helluvaopportunist, who takes birth in a minister’s car with the siren on,does an unimaginable cease of an opportunity at age 15, and controlsthe powerhouse of politics, business and research together through hisallies and alas, he is a renowned scientist. His smooth flow getsperturbed on one Dec. 10, when his plan to discourage announcement ofgeneric drugs by a swiss pharma owner lady gets deviated for a while,and he is in the battleground with our cop Mitran.
Thani Oruvan is likable for every aspect of it. I generally judge aDirector’s capacity in creating the unique personality for hischaracters and ensuring the character maintains the same throughout theplot. M Raja & SuBa get 5 star on this aspect. The way the traits ofboth Ravi & Aravind are etched and maintained through shows theefficiency.
Aravind Swamy (of Roja fame) is a real discovery in the role ofAntagonist (or should we say, the protagonist? I wonder, why not?). Hewill actually make us like the villain of the movie more than the hero.Quiet a contrary. The crisp & slow delivery of simple, yet powerfuldialogues between him & his father (played by Thambi Ramayya) aretreat. Of course, Ravi & Nayantara have done their best as usual. Neverloses curiosity. No loopholes in the story. No mediocrity in productionvalues. Limited but essential use of CG. Lot of research has gone in toconnect current affairs to hypothesis.
In conclusion, its not everyday we get such treat from Indian moviemakers…get yourself feasted…
and here comes another Tamil movie that doesn’t have the masala andunbelievable fights as in singam 1 2 pokkiri etc. A class movie withclass actors such as Arvindsamy and Jayam Ravi. Unbelievable scripting.Amazing Dialogues. The essence of the movie is Hero vs Villain asalways but the way its shown is really a new stle for Tamil Cinema.Another addition to the set of unforgettable must watch movies such asThuppaki, Vaaranam Ayiram, kaaka kaaka, dhill,vetaiyaadu vilaiyaaduetc.
A must watch for all. No unnecessary songs, no unnecessary mass punchesand theme music, no fights where the hero hits 20 people to the heightsof 20 ft. a simple yet simply awesome cop movie.
Few years back, Tamil movies were junk. But now, the time has gone andthey had grown up. At once I can say this movie is a Excellent & worthwatching. Jeyam Ravi is doing the finest job over here as the herowhile Arvind Swamy doing a magnificent role over the villain.Nayanthara is bit small character in here as Mithran’s girlfriend & thedirector should focus to take much more from her. And a word about thedirector, M. Raja has proved that he can do many things more thanre-making old movies. And the musics were very good & synchronized withthe movement of the movie. and the finally, I would say that this movieis worth watching. You have to spent 2hours and 37 minutes. but itdeserve it.
Minimally the movie is a must watch experience for all class cinemalovers.Thriller,Action,Some piece of Social message.
The movie has quite good characterization from the 1st level charactersto the final level supporting characters are perfectly and beautifullymannered.
Aravind Swamy portrays the villain character as ‘Never before inKollywood’.From his mannerism,body language,attitude he has shown muchof evilness more than hat of the script wanted which suits thecharacter perfectly.
My favorite scene of the movie would be the pre-climax sequence whereSiddarth Abimanyu (Character) hears to his father’s words,The scene inthe investigation room.
The movie totally emphasizes our Indian society and a battle of a‘Single Man'(Thani Oruvan) who want to protect the society and a‘Single Man’ Who knows only about ‘Money’
However, you have shown interest in the screenplay.The message of themovie will catch you surely! Go for it!
There is no speed breaker & a perfect song placement The Villain’scharacter is well designed and more special from other negativecharacters of Kollywood Cinema.This movie is totally different fromM.Raja’s earlier movies.Unexpected turnings and easily catch-ablescreenplay.The best movie of this kind ”GOOD vs EVIL”.You’ll have noreason to hate this film.
This movie is a ‘Gem Of Tamil Cinema’. Must watch movie for all movielovers.Don’t Miss this Roller Coaster Ride 🙂
from remake raja to m raja. yes, thats what people used to call thedirector of this film before thani oruvan. this is a path breaking filmfor not just m.raja but in Tamil cinema.
everything was good. you cant point out any mistakes in the film. closeto perfect. the script, oh my… the film is so good that you wouldwant to watch it again and again. definitely, one of the best actionthrillers in tamil cinema. this is one of those films where the villainis given supremacy for most of the time. arvind swamy nailed it assiddharth abhimanyu, he is the kind of negative shade people would liketo be. cool as cucumber. music is apt and deserves a special mentionand it resembles the contribution to what dark knight(2008) was.
Thani oruvan joins the list of my all time favorites such as KO,thuppakki.

Thani Oruvan is a bit too long [..] And even though it is a plot-drivenfilm, the film gives us well-rounded characters, who lend the slightlyfar-fetched story plausibility.There are a lot of sub-stories but itwill not make you confusing at all. The plot revolves around IPSOfficer Mithran who wants to arrest Siddharth Abhimanyu, an affluentialscientist who uses hidden illegal medical practices for profit.Sre youmust hit your nearby cinemas to watch this film.Aravind Samy is thebackbone of the film and he is the hero . Even Mithran IPS,JayamRavi,has less scope and lesser number of scenes .The title ‘ThaniOruvan’ fits Aravind Samy more than the hero Jayam Ravi . Every sceneshas a lot of twists and turns
I was absolutely dumbstruck after watching this movie. I just can’tbelieve that it so flawlessly written and executed. Hats off to thescript writer and director. Aravind Swamy- What an actor!! Superb andso convincing. He is a treat to eyes. Total package of acting, dignity,good looks and most importantly STYLE. Superb. Aravind Swamy in hisrole was the best and am sure none other than him could have done itbetter and carried the role at the required level of dignity. Excellentcasting. Very meticulous of director, actors and script. Excellentscripting, flawless execution by actors. Hats off to the whole team.The scenes and sequences are so well arranged and timely that I didn’twant to take my eyes off the screen even to wink.
I was waiting a lot to see this movie with my family ! I have no ideahow it got 9/10 rating here. The whole plot, dialogue, directors,acting everything is disastrous.
PS – I registered IMDb just to rate this movie 1 star, thats howhorrible it is!
Many scenes don’t make sense. It seems the movie has a serious plotwith twists and turns, but it’s pointless if it’s not placed nicely ina little realistic way.
Anyways the choice is yours… Enjoy!!! It might be a better optionthan a flop movie but there are many more better ways to getentertained. And also there has to be some movie left to watch betterthan this. If not, then why stoop so low to watch this?
Very Good Movie with a valuable message..!!
The extremely positive reviews made me curious to watch it. Yes it maybe far better than most of the films done by M Raja and Jayam Ravi. Thefilm surely has some good moments and action scenes. Some of them arethe flashback of Arvind Swami’s character, Mugdha Godse’s flashback,the way Jayam Ravi zeroes in on Arvind Swamy’s identity.we profoundlythank Mr. Raja for the opportunity and helping us in launching ourservices in the movie industry with this landmark movie, ‘ThaniOruvan’.M Raja’s Thani Oruvan ultimately is a winner that keeps youexcited for its more than two and a half hour run time. My rating is4.5/5. A terrific Aravind Swamy will captivate you for sure.
Mithran searches for link between News between different pages ofnewspaper. His room is covered newspaper cuttings.Narrows down thecriminals and finally decides his enemy ,because of his ideology ” tellwho is enemy, I will tell who are you ” which is modified form of adage”tell who is your friend ,I tell who are you”. Nayantara alters hisidea ,that not to target at single enemy and die for catching him,youlive and kill him and get new enemies.Finally he decides to continuehis enemy hunt ,by trying not to kill Arvind swamy after he is caughtarrested . Arvind swamy took 10 minutes to think and became good manand gave evidences and became ready to die.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the movie – a thrilling and engrossingscript. Jeyam Ravi’s acting was fabulous and Aravind Swamy wasoutstanding in this comeback movie after a long hiatus from theindustry. I only wish the script was longer, especially the portionwhere Jeyam Ravi is constantly monitored via the GPS implant andharassed by Aravind Swamy. I wished there could have been at least oneor two more subplots in that portion, whereas in the movie Jeyam Ravidiscovers his implant too quickly in my opinion. Otherwise, it is agreat movie & a must watch for any Tamil movie fan. It is the bestmovie that has come out of Kollywood in the last 5 to 10 years.
This movie is one of the good movies I have ever seen. From thestarting of movie to it’s end, even a second I didn’t feel like themovie has some boring or copied scenes. I have seen many logical moviesbefore but all of them have some big and pin-pointed flaws. Thismovie,inspite of containing some scenes which are superficial, hassucceeded convincing the audience. The characterizations of Jayram Raviand Aravind swamy are amazing.The background score is very good and isapt for the situations. A Critic: It would have been better if thecharacter of Jayram Ravi is played by some one else who has betterphysique and handsomeness. Its not to belittle Jayram Ravi but he isnot so handsome when compared to some of his co-stars. This isdefinitely one of the best clinches of police-thriller genre. Allsections of audience like it for sure. Kudos, Indian cinema has gotsome dumb.!!
Its not a bad movie. Its an above average movie with some goodsoundtracks.Its definitely entertaining. Acting is very good(especially aravind samy). The dialogues and screenplay is verymediocre. Not much(any) humor. But its barely good enough for 7/10 ,nowhere near for 8.9/10 rating. Hype for this movie is too much. Sameold, good guy chasing bad guy thriller. Characterization of bothvillains and hero is not as realistic as they think. After seeing lotof good movies, characters and dialogue seems vague, childish, forcedand juvenile even. Whole plot is dragged unnecessarily at the beginningand rushed at the end. High tech plot elements is not a substitute fora decent screenplay. The premise of the film is innovative , butexecution is mediocre at its best.
It is very rare that Kollywood makes good films .They add songs,romanceand make the movie junk.This is not on of them.The film first of allhas a very good story and a very good cast.You will never get bored inany point in the film especially climax is really good.Really waitingfor the sequel. The character of Siddharth Abhimanyu was really goodThe hero even if it is not one of the best he did a good job.This filmwill surely succeed in other language remakes.Many directors Should tryout technology based thrillers like this especially the best part inthe film is that even when they share extreme enmity they never toucheach other
Be it an epic or novel or movie, to make it interesting andentertaining, you need a powerful villain. What if he is also handsomeand charming? That’s exactly what Thani Oruvan offers. You can see oneof the most handsome evil cold blooded villain of Tamil cinema.
It’s a perfect cat and mouse thriller with some great background music(though it’s inspired from lot of western music). The movie starts withan interesting scene with a twist and moves on with great pace. One ofthe movies which do not have any unnecessary scenes barring a duet.Jayam Ravi is very effective and intense as police officer whileAravind Swamy is a cool and sophisticated evil doctor. Some greathumour is provided by Thambi Ramaiah during his conversation withAravind Swamy without deviating/spoiling the pace or the intensity ofthe scene. Hats off to Jayam Ravi for choosing a role with a verypowerful opponent which shows the craving for a good movie thanheroism. Jayam Raja to be lauded for good directorial venture(takingoff his remakes from his filmography). The movie also has some greattheme connecting petty thefts to grand scams and how the two keepscrossing each other in their paths.
Good editing, great cinematography and excellent BGM with greatdialogues and screenplay makes it worth watching for sure. Had theclimax been little different, it would have been a classic.
It will be known as one of the successful movies for villains than thehero in the league of Mankatha, Jigardhanda etc
Go for it and you won’t get disappointed!!!!
Thani Oruvan is a boon to Indian Cinema. It marks a milestone in JeyamRavi’s career. Thickly plotted and directed, it is an entertainer forsore eyes. Also it is one Arvind Swamy’s best movies.
The first pre-title scene itself installs the base for the movie.
The plot revolves around Mithran (Jeyam Ravi), an IPS trainee whoconnects all local crimes towards greater, carefully executed businessplans. He connects them all to Siddharth Abhimanyu (Arvind Swamy).After becoming a police officer he tries to take Siddharth down, onceand for all, which triggers a series of events which ultimately leadsto an outstanding climax.
Moreover, there is a memorable scene where Mithran proposes Mahima(Nayanthara) in a special way due to unforeseen circumstances.
Overall, this is an outstanding thriller which does not fail tosurprise at all!, and therefore, is a must watch for all.
This is definitely your regular Indian style film, but the script wastop notch, that’s the vast difference you would find in this. It was acop-thief clash theme something like the Korean film ‘Veteran’.Initially I thought it might be a remake of some Korean film, becauseit looks like a Korean thriller, but after learning that it was anoriginal, I was amazed. Because, you know, the director has a nick namecalled remake Raja. He’s known for bringing the Telugu blockbuster tothe Kollywood. That’s not bad and I’m not against remakes, he sure diddo a wonderful job with those projects to succeed.
The actors were brilliant, especially like everybody saying AravaindSwamy in a negative role stole the show. The plus point was minimizingthe musical track. I mean the narration was not interrupted byunexpected and unnecessary musics and dances like usual Indian filmsdoes, except on one occasion I think. The two and half an hour was toolong, but that’s the average Indian film length and totally worth it.
Not easy to predict, but in a few segments you would know what mightcome in the next scene. Because it might be an awesome film for theIndian audience who are seeing it for the first time, but in the worldstage it is just an above average with partial cliché. There were acouple twists, the ending was excellent too, and looks like a follow upmight come. My only disappointment was they missed a wonderfulopportunity to make this film more realistic in the line of ‘UnnaipolOruvan’. Instead, they opted to narrate it more commercially appealingway.
So if you are an Indian or watch regularly Indian films, you would findit great. I was impressed with the film’s promotions and it did well atthe box office. Now it is getting remade in a couple of otherlanguages, I hope they would as well do well. The brothers; the leadactor and the director did many projects together, but this one was avery special and will be a game changer for their respective career. Soyou might need to check it out if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m notsaying it is a masterpiece, but if you know Indian cinemas, then wouldlearn how unusual it is.
I learned quite some of the essential life skills form this Movie whichis needed for striving and thriving in this world, from both charactersSiddharth Abhimanyu and Mithran IPS.
We have to play both the characters in our life and I’m sure it helps,check it out!!
The dialogues are really good and few are valuable ones, fromSiddharth, Mitran and Mahima. The story line is fabulous, and whatmakes the movie great is the acting of Siddharth and his role(Excellentone) which I’ve never seen in Tamil movies currently and thescreenplay.
