As 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan's Thoongaavanam (Thoongaa Vanam) is all set to unleash itself come November 10th (Tuesday), fans and movie goers are excited to catch the maverick actor on the silver screen, in what looks like a no-nonsense film.
Adapted from the French flick, Sleepless Night, Thoongaavanam is reportedly about a cop who lands himself in a soup while trying to get away with a bag of cocaine. Since the storyline itself demands an intriguing screenplay, nothing less than an edge of the seat entertainer is expected from Kamal Haasan.
Though that's one of the main reasons why anyone should catch this film on the big screen, Thoongaavanam promises to offer much more than just exciting screenplay. Starring Prakash Raj, Trisha, Kishore and Sampath in important roles, it shouldn't come across as a surprise if this film oozes with world class performances.
On the story front, it can be safely said that Thoongaavanam houses a gripping tale, at least on the paper, for Kamal wouldn't have decided to remake this film, had the story of Sleepless Night not fascinated him enough.
Rajesh M Selva, the director of this upcoming Kamal Haasan starrer has been associated with Raaj Kamal films for a very long time and also served Kamal as his assistant director in many films.
Anyone who has earned him/herself a ticket to work under the Viswaroopam actor for such a long time ought to be talented enough to fabricate a good film. So it is only fair to expect Thoongaavanam to be a quality entertainer.
Also, it would be fascinating to see how music director Ghibran has fared in this particular film as a thriller like this would normally demand an enthralling back ground score.
For a musician who is well known for his soft music, Thoongaavanam might've posed him a different challenge altogether. As we all know, the beauty of background score can be completely realized only when experienced at a cinema hall.
If all the above mentioned reasons are not good enough to watch Thoongaavanam in theatre, check out the top 10 reasons to watch this film in the slides below:
The first and foremost reason to watch this film on the big screen would be Kamal Haasan, not just for his fans but for any movie lover. This reason doesn't need much of an explanation as we all know who Kamal Haasan is and what he is capable of in the world of cinema.
Trisha In A Negative Role?
Going by the trailer, it looks like Trisha has played a character with negative shades. There is also a scene in which the talented actress literally takes on Kamal Haasan. Now that's pretty exciting isn't it?
Decent Run Time
With just 2 hours and 7 minutes of run time (including title credits), Thoongaa Vanam is not your regular Tamil film. The film houses just one song ('Neeye Unakku Raja' in the metal genre) and that itself is a strong statement from Kamal Haasan.
Promising Technical Crew
With Sanu Varghese behind the camera and Shan Mohammed flaunting his talent on the editing table, Thoongaa Vanam has an interesting technical crew which is also promising. It shouldn't come across as a surprise if this film scores high on the technical front.
If you love good action sequences then Thoongaa Vanam might just be the film for you. Going by the teaser and trailer of this flick, good action sequences are something that will be expected from this Kamal Haasan starrer prior to entering the cinema hall.
Father-Son Relationship (Sentiment)
Thoongaa Vanam might be an action-thriller, but it might also showcase a beautiful relationship between father and a son. Don't be surprised if this modern-day film offers an opportunity to use your nose rag secretly a couple of times.
Apart from the above mentioned actors and actresses like Kamal Haasan, Trisha and Kishore, this film has many other high quality performers. Interesting names like Asha Sarath, Uma Riyaz Khan, Yugi Sethu, Santhana Bharathi, Jagan and Madhu Shalini are expected to bring in a lot to the table.
Prakash & Kamal Together For The Third Time
After Vasool Raja MBBS and Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, Prakash Raj and Kamal Haasan will share screen space for the third time in Thoongaa Vaanam. The last time I saw them perform together, I was literally spoilt for choice. Watching these two gentlemen perform together is an absolute treat indeed.
Though it looks like Thoongaa Vanam might've been fabricated keeping in mind young audiences, it might have enough in it to entertain the family audience as well. Since this film has the backing of a long weekend, it might gradually attract family audiences into theatres.
A Chance To Revel In The Festive Spirit
There couldn't be a better way to celebrate the festival of lights than watching a Kamal Haasan starrer on the big screen if you are a movie buff. What more, a film like Thoongaa Vanam should be an ideal watch during a festival like Diwali.
