Thoonga Nagaram Movie Review
Another movie with Madurai city as the background and when happenings about a group of friends form the main plot of the storyline, it sounds all too familiar. The director who also plays a main character in the film has camouflaged the plot brilliantly. The movie exceeds all expectations in terms of the sequence of events that unfold and though there are lot of dull moments in the middle part of the film, the climax is well thought off. “Thoonga Nagaram” though cares a damn about logic turns out to be a watchable fare.
The movie begins on a dark note with the background voice narrating on how the story unfolds where three people are shown along with a burning person referred to as the fourth person. These four are thick friends and what brings them to this situation is said with the storyline rolling back 6 months and slowly the characters establish themselves.
Kannan (Vimal), Ayyavu (Barani), Rajamani (director Gaurav) and Mariappan (Nishanth) are the four friends who make their living in Madurai. There is Kalaivani (Anjali) a local TV compeer who happens to be Kannan’s child hood friend. Its love bug between Kannan and Kalaivani and the story moves on at a steady pace from thereon.
There is also a cloth merchant’s son along with the local don’s son taking scandalous pictures of girls changing saree in their store and using the same to black mail them for sexual favors. Kannan confronts these guys one day which leaves the don’s son heavily injured. Enraged by this, the don wants Kannan and his friend’s dead. The don hatches out a conspiracy to have Kannan killed and whether he succeeds in that or not is all about in the rest of the story.
As mentioned earlier, the movie could have been made more crisper making it an entertaining fare. The movie just scathes through the upper surface and hardly there is any significant twist in the storyline except for the climax. The movie has a running time of 140 minutes.
Music by Sundar C babu is nothing worthy to mention so is the editing by suresh. The director should have had more scenes in establishing Madurai which would have added more flavor to the film.
In terms of acting all four male actors along with Anjali have performed their roles to perfection. Nishanth has to be given special mention for for portrayal of the character of a dumb person and he has pulled it dramatically. Anjali continues her good work in this movie also.
Director Gaurav has given more emphasis to the story while the screenplay is found to be dodgy in many places. There are lot of loose scenes in the middle which should have been trimmed that would have made this film an engrossing entertainer. The movie is most likely to have a decent run at the box-office.
“Thoonga Nagaram” is same old story with a riveting climax.
