Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum Plot:
A greedy doctor, played by Ashutosh Rana, finds a new method to
cure various diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and spinal cord
But his remedy comes at a cost and a grievous one at that.
Ashutosh removes stem cells from foetuses and uses them to cure his
patients, which results in many abortions all over Tamil Nadu (he
employs doctors throughout the state to carry out the dirty
Thambi Ramaiah, who works at one of those hospitals, is
disturbed by the large number of abortions and decides to courier a
sample of the pill used to kill unborn babies to Nassar, an
Jai, a courier boy, is sucked into the issue when he is
entrusted with the task of delivering Thambi Ramaiah's
Jai looks convincing in his courier boy avatar. However, when it
comes to the action sequences, the actor looks a tad out of
The inclusion of Yami Gautham's character looks forced and the
romantic portions involving her is a major drawback as they slow
down the pace of the film.
Similarly, comedy tracks involving Santhanam and VTV Ganesh gets
tedious after a point and in the second half, it becomes unbearable

how many Tamil directors are bold enough to completely trust their
story? Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum is another film that
suffers at the hands of commercialization.
