Thiri review:Tedious watch
A monotonous film, watch it at your own risk!

Ashwin, Swathi, AL Azhagppan
After playing chocolate boy role in several movies, Ashwin Kakumanu attempts to become a mass action hero with Thiri. The only relief is that he doesn’t have any punch dialogues but the film is an amateurish masala entertainer highlighting the flaws in the educational system.
Jeeva (Ashwin) is an engineering student, his life goes well until he slaps the son of his own college correspondent, who issues bad contact certificate to ruin our hero’s future.

Jeeva has a huge respect for his dad(Jayaprakash), a school teacher who gives more importance to discipline but agrees to his son’s revenge against his college correspondent (AL Azhagappan). The rest of the film is about how Jeeva tries to bring down the empire of AL Azhagappan (Yawn)!
The basic problem with Thiri is that there is not even a single scene in the film which is new or exciting. The screenplay is so disappointing that even a small kid will be able to predict the next scene. The dialogues in the film are preachy, comedy sequences fall flat and action portions are lousy.
Ashwin is a complete miscast for the angry young man role and unfortunately, his dialogue delivery doesn’t pack a punch. Instead of being a powerful baddie, AL Azhagappan turns out to be a comical villain and Swathi too hasnt contributed much. The only silver-lining of Thiri is Jayaprakash’s characterization and performance, even in the plodding screenplay.
Music by Ajesh is loud that dialogues are not audible in many scenes. KG Venkatesh’s cinematography is just okay and editor Raja Sethupathi could have made the film crisper by chopping off unwanted songs and scenes.
Overall, Thiri is a monotonous film, watch it at your own risk!
Verdict: Tedious watch
