Thappu Thanda Movie Review

Thappu Thanda Tamil Movie Review
There are very few movies that come just with the strength of the story and Thappu Thanda with new faces is one such attempt.

The story which begins with a murder revolves around a robbery.

Mime Gopi is a former MLA who plans to bribe the public for votes. In the process he gives money to his driver Kaaliya.

Hero Sathya is a friend of Kaaliya and is also a member of John Vijay’s team that does small time robberies in the area.

When John Vijay finds about the money transfer, he befriends Kaaliya and plans to loot the money.

Did his plan succeed, what happens after that forms the rest of the story and the director has given it with an interesting screenplay.

Debutant director Srikantan has maintained the tempo and the suspense in the movie till the end. The second half is bit slow compared to the first half. However, overall the movie gives a satisfied feel at the end.

Sathya who has made his debut in the flick has understood his role and has performed accordingly. However there is still scope for improvement in his acting skills.

Mime Gopi has perfected the role of a former MLA with his body language. Thought initially he is shown as a fierce villain, that importance somehow seems to be missing during the end.

John Vijay seems to continue his mannerism from his previous movies, which is a bit disappointing and repetitive.

Similarly Visaranai fame Ajay Gosh also could have done a better job.

Music by Naren Balakumar and cinematography by A Vinod Bharathi could have been better. Editing by Raja Sethupathi is another major highlight of the movie.

Verdict: A good story supported by a few appreciable performances.

Rating: 2/5 – With fewer mistakes
