Thambikku Indha Ooru
Barath, Sana Khan, Nizhalgal Ravi, Madhalasa
The film has no story, logic, reason or continuity with scenes cyclostyled from earlier films. The hero and heroine gets into a Kingfisher flight in Hyderabad and lands in Chennai on Air India! All leading artists in the film ends up at Binny Mills for the climax shoot out with the villain who is heroine?s father as the hero fights two dozen stuntmen and saves everybody including his foster parents and also ?discovers? his dad !!
There is no originality in the film. Akil (Bharath) is a rich guy who along with his friend Cola Kumar (Vivek) runs a south Indian restaurant Sakunthala food palace in Singapore. His dad (Nizhalugal Ravi) arranges his marriage with family friend?s daughter Priya (Madhalasa), but Akil is in love with Divya (Sanya Khan) a squash champion from India, modeled on Sania Mirza!
When the marriage is called off, Priya?s dad in a fit of rage blurts out that he never wanted his daughter to marry an orphan. It shocks Akil whose foster dad reveals that his biological parents are in Chengalpet and a ambulance driver (Thalaivasal Vijay) knows the truth. Akil comes to Chennai in search of his parents and gets into trouble with Divya?s dad Thirumalai who does not like her getting married at a time when she is about to sign a Rs 5 Crore endorsement deal! He also runs into the bad books of Kumaraswamy (Prabhu), which leads to the final climax where everything is unraveled.
Bharath apes Vijay?s mannerisms and dance movements and tries his best to pass off as a mass hero. Vivek is highly irritating as a retrograde male stereotype making crude stale jokes and poking fun at Tamil super heroes, Telugu actors and Malayalee girls. Outrageous is a pretty good word to describe Vivek who uses double entendre liberally. Discussing the merits of the female performers would be doing great disservice to them. So mum?s is the word.
There is not even one hummable number from Dharan. By the time the film has strayed into its last scene, after two hours and 30 minutes you are past caring. No two ways about it Thambikku Indha Ooru is an unmitigated endurance test.
