Directed by Padmakumar, Thiruvambadi Thamban follows a more secure and similar path. The film, filled with emotions, actions, romance and comedy has nothing new to offer. In spite of great actors and a good budget, Thiruvambadi Thamban fails to create the impact that was expected, considering it has Jayaram in the lead.
The script of Thiruvambadi Thamban is extremely shaky, and that is the biggest flaw in the film. Padmakumar takes us aimlessly around the narrative, especially in the first one hour. It ultimately leaves the audience wondering what the director is trying to convey! After the turbulent one hour, suddenly the narrative changes and you start expecting some big changes. However, the film cannot hold on its own.
