Thittam Irandu is a kind of thrillers that begins with a number of rain. As the digital camera pulls again from a home, we see a person along with his face masked by a motorbike helmet. And when the digital camera strikes down, we see that he has a knife in his hand and walks with a limp. Who might he be? Is this a one-off homicide or is he a serial killer? Aishwarya Rajesh performs Adhira, a cop, and we marvel if so she’s going to observe subsequent. We’re stuffed with questions however slowly we lose curiosity within the solutions because the movie strikes on.
We get a weakly motivated suspect (performed by Pavel Navageethan). We additionally get generic flashbacks which might be supposed to provide us perception into Adhira’s childhood however they don’t actually do a lot. What bothered me most about Thittam Irandu is that no person appears to even be attempting. Everything, together with how the plot strands unfold, could be very purposeful and generic. If somebody needs to say one thing, they are saying simply that very factor with out attempting to sound attention-grabbing or dramatic. There’s no try to make the scenes vigorous or attention-grabbing, and there’s a number of audience-cheating.
Some type of dishonest is anticipated and even par for the course in a movie of this type. Let’s say you see somebody with a knife and you think them of one thing. Later, after a number of scenes, you may understand that the individual was really doing one thing else and never what you thought. But right here, there’s a lot dishonest that you just don’t know what to make of all of it and what to imagine. For instance, a person who’s captured by Adhira immediately spills all the small print she (and we because the viewers) must know—finish of scene. You’d anticipate some drama or resistance from the person. And there’s no query if he might be mendacity.
The solely factor I appreciated in regards to the movie is its premise that’s linked to gender and it’s really authentic. Note how Adhira wears pants and shirts by the size of the movie as if to indicate that she’s a person doing a person’s job. The premise leads to a twist involving a personality (naming who would spoil the movie) however it’s handled in a really simplistic method.
In reality, on the finish I used to be left questioning why make this a homicide thriller in an effort to body the premise? Why not make it a drama and actually go to city by exploring each side and angle of it? I used to be left with this thought on the finish of the movie: Poor Aishwarya Rajesh deserved higher.
