Arun Vijay, Mamta
Director Magizh Thirumeni?s Thadayara Thaakka is a fast moving action packedfilm with lots of twists and turns. It works largely due to its presentation and high-speed editing of Praveen and Srikanth.
It is a straightforward story of an ordinary man who runs a call-taxi service played by Arun Vijay caught in a difficult situation beyond his control and the cascading effect on his life. Selva (Arun Vijay) is a self made man who runs a successful call taxi business. He is in love with Priya (Mamta), a nursing staff in a hospital.
Their marriage is fixed and suddenly Selva is caught in a vortex and gets unknowingly sucked into the world of two deadly brothers Maha (Maha Gandhi) and Kumar ( Vamsi Krishna) who control the city?s underworld and their scheming henchman (Arul Das). Selva becomes a marked man as the gang bays for his blood for a crime he had not committed and has now to prove his innocence if he has to live!
The film at 2 hours and 8 minutes moves at a rapid pace mainly due to Praveen and Srikanth?s fast-cut editing. There are only two songs in the film tuned by Thaman which are melodious. Camerawork of Sukumar especially the night effects are striking. The first part is what makes it interesting, as the pace slackens in the second half due to many unnecessary twists which makes it confusing.
Arun Vijay scores as Selvam, his body language and dialogue delivery is in sync with the character. Why is lady luck not shining for this talented actor? The romance between Arun and Mamta has been well worked out, especially the ?butterfly? naughty dialogues. The villains ? Vamsi Krishna, Maha Gandhi and Arul Das areriveting. The comedy actors who do the hero friends role like Murgadoss are good.
On the whole Magizh Thirumeni has made a fast paced thriller which has essential speed to keep the audience hooked.
Verdict- Racy Taut Thriller
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
