This is not the first review on Internet. 2 -3 Reviews have come already praising the movie and declaring it as HIT. This is
going to be the first review which is going to be on perspective of a Common man who pays his hard earned 120rs to watch a Movie..
First of all, Congrats to Thandavam team for donating 25 Lakhs to National Association for the Blind. Premier show of the movie happened yesterday night in 6 screens of Sathiyam Cinemas for price of Rs. 1000 per ticket. It was really for a noble cause and I salute the team for this wonderful gesture. Hopefully, other Producers also does the same thing for God's Children.
There is a huge fight going on in Director's Association because of Thandavam's Story. One Assistant Director is claiming that the story belongs to him. Whoever watches the movie will agree to my Opinion that the MOVIE DOESNT HAVE UNIQUE STORY. It is just similar to Ghajini & Dham Dhoom. It was claimed to be a ACTION THRILLER...But, it doesn't fall under this category completely. It had more Romance than Thrilling Scenes..
Vikram is the only actor who is respected by all other actors fans.MGR - Sivaji, Rajini - Kamal,Vijay - Ajith, Simbu - Dhanush, Vikram - ????. There is no Competitor for him and he is also the only person who doesn't have HATE PAGES in FB. This clearly shows that everyone loves him.. He is a GREAT ACTOR but I think he had not got much scenes in this movie to show his potential. He is really maintaining his body very well but his face also looks old in few scenes.
Santhanam is a HUGE CROWD PULLER nowadays. Indeed, he decides the fate of few movies. His One Liners are already Popular. Dialogue in which he says about THALA had got more claps than any other scene in the movie. He doesn't have a major role to play in the movie and comes only in very few scenes.
Amy Jackson's second movie. She is really apt for this role. "Yaaradi Mohini" Song was too good. But, Amy couldnt Dance properly and director had adjusted it by making her CAT WALK throughout the song.
I think the only ACTRESS in current Tamil Cinema who looks GORGEOUS in Saree is ANUSHKA. She really looks too cute in the movie. Chemistry between Vikram & Anushka is the REAL SOUL for this movie. People felt bad when Asin dies in the movie Ghajini without knowing Surya is Sanjay Ramasamy..In this movie too, the love scenes were as similar as Ghajini & Anushka will know the true identity of Vikram. There comes the Song "Oru Paadhi Kadhavu Neeyadi" which is MESMERIZING..
Lakshmi Rai just comes in 3 -4 scenes and doesn't have major role to play. Her role is almost similar to Dham Dhoom role which will make the People compare Dham Dhoom and this movie.
Jagapathi Movie (Telugu Actor) had done a role of Vikram's friend. I hope Director selected him to get collections in Andhra..He is the one who had won lots of Nandi Awards but doesn't impress much in this movie.
Music by G.V. Prakash was good. Two songs were excellent. Nirav Shah Cinematograpy was treat to eyes asusual.
Director A.L.Vijay had got great respect among tamil audience after Madrasapattinam and Deiva Thirumagal. There was HUGE EXPECTATION created for this movie stating it as a ACTION THRILLER. He had done a decent job in directing the movie but had failed in Screenplay department. Movie is very slow in the first half. "Uyirin Uyirae" song comes few minutes before the climax and definitely it is impacting the FLOW OF THE MOVIE which may even NEGATIVE FEEDBACK for this movie..He did the same mistake in Deiva Thirumagal by having "Vizhigalil" at a place which was not needed at all.
Overall, Movie was not as good as A.L.Vijay movies and not as bad as Vikram's recent movies..
Rating for this movie is 6.5 / 10
