Movie Title




Star Cast

Jai Varma, Mythriya, Asish Vidyarthi, Vadivel

A film with newcomers should be encouraged, but Theekuchi makes you grimace as it is a ?masala? barbecue of the state of self finance ?private? colleges in the state. To call this film an amateurish attempt would be an understatement.

Sakthi (Jaivarma) is on a mission to take revenge on those who usurped government land and killed his mother (Bhanupriya) who wanted to construct a school there. Instead a local illicit arrack seller and rowdy Pasupathy Pandian (Ashish Vidhyarti) with the help of the Education Minister (Kadhal Dhandapani) builds a self financing private engineering college and strikes gold.

Pasupathy becomes rich and powerful by giving admissions by getting capitation fees. The poor students who don?t pay up either disappear or commit suicide. Sakthi and his friends including the heroine (Mythriya), daughter of Pasupathy fight back against this injustice and nefarious activities going on in the campus. How they ultimately triumph and justice prevails is what the film is about.

Screenplay, Scene Creation & Direction (that is what is written in the press note) by A.L Raja makes the movie drag for nearly 3 hours. The music of Srikanth Deva leaves you with a headache. All elements that the director thinks are necessary for commercial success like romance, glamour, dances, fights, lewd jokes, sentiments, tears and a separate comedy track of Vadivel as a gypsy (Nadodi) who has five wives are rolled into the film.

Verdict: Avoid
