Sometimes, soon after watching a movie, it happens that you stop analysing whether the movie is good or bad and immediately what comes into our minds is the unbelievable hard work of the entire team. Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru is one such movie that keeps you appreciating the entire team for such an effort throughout the movie. The film features Karthi and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles with Sathuranga Vettai fame Vinoth wielding the megaphone. Dream warrior pictures SR Prabhu and SR Prakash Babu have produced the movie.

Much before getting into the synopsis of this movie, we would like to make it clarity. It’s best to avoid revealing the entire plot as it would become a spoiler for you people were going to watch it in theatres.

When a young police officer has to go through many files and dispose them, here he comes across one particular file that sends Goosebumps into his veins. He immediately calls the police officer Theeran Thirumaran (Karthi) and here begins the flash back sequences that takes us through the most disturbing real life incident case that happened between 1995 and 2005.

Post intermission sequences get more gripping engaging us with a much high level involvement.

There are times when most of the actors don’t prefer too much of groundwork, as they believe a simple screen presence is more than enough for their fans to applaud and appreciate. But, what Karthi has done there’s something really astounding. He seems to have gone through a lot of process to get him physically and mentally prepared for the role and has executed them to the core of perfection. Beat the action sequences, the mannerisms exhibits while handling his officers and his subordinates, he’s just a genius. On the other hand, Rakul Preet Singh has tried living up to the expectations of her role. But to be precise, her portions look completely unwanted in many situations. In fact, her episodes completely hamper the screenplay in few moments. But the post intermission sequences get more gripping engaging us with a much high level involvement. Abhimanyu Singh playing the role of a baddie has excelled with remarkable performance. Bose Venkat appears almost throughout the movie and makes an impressive spell.

The cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan is highly appreciable.

On the technical part, the cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan is highly appreciable. He has cranked the camera in such a way that we are made to travel along with the characters in the movie. The songs were quite good when heard as an album, but it does not fit well with the screenplay. Maybe, we could say that the pressure of screenplay get slightly enlivened with an item song that comes by the second half.

Critically analysing the film it goes through some sluggish moments by the first half. The chasing sequences in the second half look slightly repeated and it could have been trimmed. If director Vinoth had kept a watch on these factors, thereby keeping the duration to just 120 minutes or else, the movie would have been a real edge-seated thriller, something much more than the critically acclaimed Madras Cafe that was banned in Tamil Nadu.

For now, we strictly recommend to watch the film as it portrays the police and its department with a match realistic shade. It also creates awareness about an issue, which we might have ignored till now.
