Dhanush is one of the refined actors in Indian cinema and no doubt he has received the National award and is also recognized as a pan indian actor. He has teamed up with director PrabuSolomon for a film and this itself created a huge expectation for this film. Having KeerthySuresh on board and DImman for music made this a film to be watched out for. Unfortunately, there has been very low buzz on this film towards the release and many wondered if it was a planned tactic so that the audience would like the film when they watch it without any expectation. To answer everyone’s questions and to enlighten us on what Thodari is all about, the movie saw the lights today. Read more to know on how the journey is.
Thodari is a rom-com set in a train and the happenings/incidents in a train journey. The initial few mins of Thodari just took its own time to establish so many characters and few comedy as well as love portions. But the movie picked up well towards the interval as the main plot of Thodari was unvieled and ended up with an interval block that gave the perfect mood to the second half. Second half was more engaging than the first with some good love scenes and thrilling scenes that connected well with the audience. And the climax is not the one as you expect in a PrabuSolomon film.
Having said that, performance wise, Dhanush has done a neat job as a pantry server and has even underplayed in many of the scenes. KeerthySuresh has performed really well and she has got the mightier portions to perform. Apart from these two, RadhaRavi sir, ThambiRamayya and co, Harish, Ganesh and others have done their job well.
PrabuSolomon has written a completely different story that just had shades of his previous works and has given a good film. Cinematography is challenging and good as well as they had to shoot the entire film with the train premises. Music by Imman is a big plus as they already have been received well and the BGM is good again. Editing could have been bettter as the movie runs for a longer time. CG works also could have been done much better as they look very amatuerish on screen.
If not for the logic loopholes like running and dancing in the top of a running train and others and the very average CG works, Thodari is a good film. For those who want to get entertained on the whole, Thodari is a safe bet.
