Red Giant movies is known for distributing movies with good content. Tamiluku En Ondrai Aluthavum(TEOA) is definitely one such movie. The film has its negative points, but the effort to narrate a fresh concept with the usual commercial inputs is laudable. Continue reading our review to know more.
This film is about three stories which are intertwined
beautifully. There is Bindu Madhavi who gets stuck in a
dangerous situation but cannot call her boyfriend, played by
Attakathi Dinesh for help.
There is this taxi driver, played by Sathish whose taxi is used by terrorists
to destroy the city by planting a bomb which will explode when the
terrorist makes a phone call.
And then there is this brainy tech savvy college drop out,
played by Nakul who
is jobless but makes a living by helping engineering students in
their projects. A natural calamity occurs leading to a major
network jam which snuffs out the much needed signal from each and
every mobile phones in the city.
Bindu Madhavi is helplessly stranded with a lifeless phone, the
terrorists are trying to explode the bomb by making that all
important phone call and Nakul tries hard to restore the signal to
all mobile phones in the city.
How these three stories are brought together in the end. Will
Nakul succeed, will the bomb explode and will Bindu Madhavi be
saved from a major disaster forms the crux of this comedy
The two performances which stands out in this film comes from
Nakul and veteran actress Urvashi who plays his mother. Special
mention goes to Urvashi who manages to both educate the audience
with her scientific terms and tickles their funny bones with her
terrific comic sense.
Both Satish and Bindu Madhavi have done decent jobs but the
performances of Aishwarya Dutta, who plays Nakul's love interest
and Attakathi Dinesh contributes to the negative points. Dinesh
seems to be locked inside his Cuckoo character and fails to adapt
to the role designed for this film.
Screenplay in the first half is sluggish and the movie picks up
pace only just before the interval. It moves at a good pace in the
second half but gets predictable at the end. Contradictingly, the
film is narrated in an interesting way.
Editing by VJ Sabu Joseph comes in handy when three stories have
to be interlinked and is done in a proficient manner. However, one
feels that some unconvincing love portions especially in the first
half could've been taken out to give a racy thriller feel to
Tamiluku En Ondrai Aluthavum.
Background score by Thaman is commendable and director
Ramprakash Rayappa has managed to impress with his fresh writing.
Cinematography by Deepak Kumar Padhy is convincing enough.
Tamiluku En Ondrai Aluthavum could've easily been made
into a racy thriller of high standards but the director has chosen
to add commercial content which has backfired in parts.
Check out the slides below for some of the best scenes
from Tamiluku En Ondrai Aluthavum:
Nakul as Vasanth
Nakul might bag a big film through Tamiluku En Ondrai
Aluthavum. His acting in this film is as natural as it can
Though this is one of the enjoyable scene in the movie, it is
time for Dinesh to make subtle changes in his acting technique as
his performance in this movie reminds you of his portrayal in
Bindu Madhavi has done what is required. But if she wants to
establish herself as a prominent actress, she should start
experimenting with her roles.
Newcomer Aishwarya Dutta has failed to impress in her first
movie. Hopefully her next outing will give her some
Naan Rajavaga Pogiren Connection
VLS Rock Cinema, who had made Naan Rajavaga Pogiren has
produced this one too. Looks like they have recognized Nakul's
talent and wants to nurture it.

Ondrai Aluthavum. Watch out for this particular scene.

the producer and distributor.
