Acting by Cast
User Review( votes)
Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru has lived up to the hype for sure. If you neglect a few cliches and a few commercial elements (though used sparingly), you can enjoy the movie to its fullest.
After Sathuranga Vettai, Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru is directed by H. Vinod and it has created a lot of hype. The movie was promoted heavily by the team right after the teaser was released.
There was also a “making of” video released as part of the promotion. A few scenes in the teaser really did increase the hype.
So did the movie live up to the hype? Let’s see.
Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru Review
Karthi has certainly done justice to his role with his fit body.
He has also worked on improving his modulation to fit in the role of a cop (Theeran) who is a topper in the training and also climbs up in the ranks.
His attempts to hunt down a masked robbery gang that mercilessly loots and kills. Karthi’s role as a cop goes beyond levels in getting the job done.
Rahul Preet’s role as Karthi’s love interest sounds like the usual forced addition of a love track in tamil movies.
But at the same time, you will feel that such a slight distraction gives a little bit of fresh air and pleasant feel in the otherwise tight action and gore.
The merciless looting (and killing) gang has a flashback too that makes us understand why they are so terrific. And in a sense, their flashback justifies their barbaric behaviour.
The screenplay is tight and the movie moves along at the right place – so right that it is neither too fast nor too slow.
The stunt scenes have come out so well and Karthi perfectly accomplishes those so casually and with an impact.
There are quite a few hard hitting, message implying dialogues in the movie that get us thinking. Those dialogues also establish the theme and seriousness of the movie pretty well.
The director deserves an applaud for wasting no time in jumping right into the story as soon as the credits.
Abhimanyu Singh plays the villain and he fits perfectly into his role.
There are a few realistic laughter links that we can relate too – like the reliance offer.
The second half of the movie is paced up. However the item number is certainly a speed breaker and is purely placed for the sake of it.
In fact, throughout the movie we could see such instances where a pure action thriller gets a mix of a few commercial elements that are not only distracting but send the message that the movie desperately wants to strike a balance between the two.
Bose Venkat does his job neatly as Karthi’s co-cop.
Cinematography is at its best with Sathyan Sooryan who captures the top angles of deserts pretty well.
In fact, without those kind of shots the impact of the efforts put forth by the cops won’t be so effectively brought out.
Ghibran’s music is good but not great. The BG keeps up with the tempo of the movie. Nevertheless we find it noisy and loud at times.
The action in the movie deserves a mention and hence Dilip Subbarayan has done a great job for the movie given its genre. Shivanandeeswaran’s edits help making the movie pacy.
Overall, Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru has lived up to the hype for sure. If you neglect a few cliches and a few commercial elements (though used sparingly), you can enjoy the movie to its fullest.
