Thaana Serndha Koottam Review

Well, we have been waiting to see Suriya in such a role, which has well-utilised the charm, simplicity and the subtle acting skills of the much loved actor. He is at ease while performing the central character and right from the first frame, his energy is unmatchable.

Vignesh Sivan has smartly adapted the main storyline of Special 26 and placed in a milieu, which is quite familiar to the Tamil film audiences.

Verdict: With some crackling performances, neat packaging of Vignesh Sivan and a well-layered storyline Thaana Serndha Koottam offers us an enjoyable ride, which is worth the money that you spend on it.

Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is a fun-filled no-nonsense con film. The rule is to have constantly progressing predicaments, a guessing game on what is going to happen next, unpredictable twists/turns and a power-packed climax.

Vignesh’s formula to tease his audience by setting up scenes of possible cliches and then to surprise them with something else has worked big time for the movie.

Verdict: A smart heist film!

Suriya commands your attention in every frame and you cannot take your eyes off him. Be it the emotional scene with his dad after an interview followed by the breakdown scene, when his friend commits suicide, he reveals the actor behind the star. After Vignesh and Suriya, Anirudh is another hero of TSK.

Verdict- Go for it!

The film mirrors this battle as well. Vignesh Shivn constantly tries to be ‘fun’ and ‘serious’ and ends up not achieving both. There are places where Thaanaa Serndha Koottam catches us off-guard.

Walk in without expectation and let Thaanaa Serndha Koottam’s humour entertain you. As hard as the film tries to be serious, it is tough to take it so.

The film belongs to Suriya in the central role, as a young man with a conscience and a desire to clean up the system, who isn't above using devious methods to con the rich and corrupt.

TSK is an enjoyable ride for the entire family, and it’s refreshing to see Suriya back in form.

Thaanaa Serndha Koottam works wonderfully well as long as it stays closer to the plot of Special 26, and the changes are superficial - restricted to the backgrounds and motivations of the characters.

It is the deviations that Vignesh ShivN brings in to make his film feel different from the original are underwhelming.
