Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum Review

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 injuries.

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 work).

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 activist.

Jai, a courier boy, is sucked into the issue when he is entrusted with the task of delivering Thambi Ramaiah's parcel.


Jai looks convincing in his courier boy avatar. However, when it comes to the action sequences, the actor looks a tad out of place.

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 as it stops the flow of the core plot.


Karthik's background score is apt at many places. Sathya's cinematography is good as it delivers several eye candy moments, apart from capturing the true essence of the film.

Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum has a promising plot, but is marred by poor screenplay which includes several unwanted elements, both in the first as well as second half.

Overall View:

This Jai-starrer could've been an edge of the seat thriller. But 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.
