Worthwhile mainstream thriller

The most impressive aspect of the film for me was the vulnerability of the protagonist.

Vishal-Samantha starrer is about conning a con man

Irumbu Thirai is not an extraordinary film, but it is movie made well. The writing is tight and the film addresses real-life questions such as why there are privacy concerns about the Aadhaar card.

A solid cybercrime action thriller

Irumbu Thirai is super strong with slick visuals of George C Williams, editor Ruben chopped off all the unnecessary songs which is a very good move and Yuvan Shankar Raja's BGM is the third hero of the film after Vishal and Arjun.(more)
