Tamil Cinema B and C Centers
Movies of commercial genre are done to death in Tamil cinema, but still it seems as if the best bet of filmmakers. The reason is that those movies work well at the box office in the B and C centres. Thadaiyara Thaakka is another movie with commercial genre that has hit the screens now, which is a comeback movie for the actor Arun Vijay. The movie as usual deals with the underdogs of the city and has nothing new to offer to the movie watchers.
Thadaiyara Thaakka Story
Selvam (Arun Vijay) earns for a living with his travel agency. He is also in love with Priya (Mamta Mohandas). In the meanwhile, he messes with a local underdog. The mess gets into a fight and the goon falls to the coma stage because of Selvam. In addition to this, his fiancée Priya accuses him of being too aggressive. Now, the underdog’s henchmen search for Selvam to take his life as revenge. Now Selvam has to solve the mess with the goon and also should prove his innocence to Priya. Can he succeed in both?
Too much relay on Editing
Thadaiyara Thaakka’s director Magizh Thirumeni has included too much of grey substance into the movie, but the commercialized making has not gone well with the script. In addition to this he has relied too much on editing to get his movie to a shape. The reliance on editing too much has brought the movie down in terms of screenplay standards. However, he makes some attempts to eclipse his flaws, but hardly succeeds in doing so.
Arun Vijay innings has been started
Arun Vijay has made a decent attempt onscreen. His role requires him to be a left hander but he has not portrayed it perfectly onscreen and appears artificial. However, the chemistry between him and Mamta Mohandas works well in the romantic scenes.
Sukumar’s cinematography needs an appreciation, but the flaws in the plot negate the good visuals. Thaman’s music does justice to the genre of the movie but fails to make a dent.
Overall, Thadaiyara Thaakka is a yet another commercial pot-boiler with many flaws!
