Thiruchitrambalam Movie Review

Actor Dhanush and filmmaker Jawahar Mithran together have delivered three movies – Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Kutty, & Uthamaputhiran. Apparently, when this duo decided to come together for the fourth time, the expectations were pretty evident that all that we can expect is a decent family entertainer.

Pazham (a) Thiruchitrambalam (Dhanush) has cold vibes with his father (Prakash Raj), a police officer as he strongly believes that his father was the reason behind the death of his mother (Revathi) and his younger sister. His only consolation in the house is his grandfather Senior Thiruchitrambalam (Bharathiraja) and his childhood friend Thenmozhi (Nithya Menon). The movie traverses through the life of Pazham as he tries to find his soul mate. Does he get the one he desires? Does he reunite with his father letting the bitter memories of the past decline?

The first thing that one might notice in the movie is Dhanush’s ability to take a step back and let the other actors perform. Throughout the movie, you can find Nithya Menon and Bharathiraja ruling the show. In many places, we may start feeling what if the movie was titled ‘Thenmozhi’ as the entire plot revolves around her. As a hardcore Dhanush fan, you might not get what you’re looking for, but family audiences are sure to love him for his characterization. Prakash Raj does a decent job as a prideful cop and a soft-hearted father is good. Raashi Khanna and Priya Bhavani Shankar appear in extended cameo roles. Stunt Silva portion is totally unwanted.

The songs are well-tailored for the interests of fans. Thai Kilavi is a theatrical delight and Thenmozhi is a neat melody. Cinematography is one of the biggest plus, and Dhanush has been shown beautifully.

If you’re looking out for the minuses, the film actually doesn’t have one. If you’re labeling this movie as a slow-paced one, just remember ‘Family Drama’ is a genre, and that’s how it can be treated.
