G.V.Films' new film, Thirudi, is a good entertainer sans violence and vulgarity, with a modern approach and catchy dialogue. Kathir and Tanya make a superb entry with this film. This romantic drama is packed with good humor and a clever screenplay.
The film is about Aravind (Kathir) who comes from the city to a village to learn karate from Devaram (Rajiv). In course of time, Thamarai (Tanya), a typical village girl and Aravind fall in love with each other.
When the villagers come to know of this love affair, they oppose it strongly. They blame Devaram as the cause for this. Devaram packs Aravind back to Chennai.
In the meantime, Mani (Guna) enters the scene as the "Murai Mappillai" of Thamarai and devices plans to marry Thamarai. When Thamarai comes to know about Aravind's departure to Chennai she falls sick, mentally and physically. She is admitted to a hospital in Chennai where, accidentally, Aravind sees her.
Their love blooms again. When Mani learns about their love affair, he plots to kill Aravind. Thamarai comes to know of Mani's plans. How did Thamarai thwart the plan of Mani? Will Thamarai and Aravind get united? Answer to these questions come at the end of this movie. Director K.Shankar has placed a twist in the ending.
Kathir looks handsome and agile. He brings conviction to the character. Tanya is the surprise package. She looks very cute on the screen and the role of a village girl suits her best. Debutant Guna as the villain has played his part well.
Director K.Shankar, one time associate director of Jeeva, establishes himself as a director with this movie. He could have paid a little more attention to the screenplay. Songs composed by Bharani have been shot beautifully. Camerawork by T.Shankar and editing by Sathish are impressive.
In a nutshell, the film will strike a chord in family audience and young ones who are in love.
Thirudi - the story fails to haunt.
