A well made drama that's high on suspense

Running over just 2 hours Thegidi doesn't exactly race along, but from the pre-interval scenes Ramesh piles up the suspense well enough to have you glued to your seats and keep you guessing the 'whos' and 'whys' of the case, which turn out to be driven by an interesting new motive. (more)

As suspense thriller, Thegidi is a well-researched, purposefully executed film that works perfectly well. This is a film good enough to merit a trip to the multiplex. (more)

Thegidi is the latest in the list of new-age Tamil films

Ramesh manages to keep things understated even when the situations seem to turn overwhelming. Barring a couple of scenes, there is a matter-of-factness in the approach that keeps the movie from turning into a bombastic thriller in which everything is at stake. (more)

Thegidi - Licence to thrill

This is one of those paranoia thrillers where the protagonist finds himself deeper and deeper in a conspiracy, and the only major issue I had is that this paranoia isn't played up enough. In the best scene, Madhu (Janani Iyer, perfectly cast) leans on Vettri and curls her fingers around his. He's happy that the girl he likes so much seems to like him back, but a second later, he freezes. (more)
