Thittam Irandu

Critics Review


One-Trick Poney With Many Twists But Hardly Any Thrills!

The curiosity does remain to a certain extent through the film but our involvement with what is happening on screen slowly withers away. This is because almost everything in Thittam Irandu feels superficial. Sample this. Someone is caught red handed and is being questioned. The character begins to confess and this almost feels like a kid reciting a rhyme. The scene plays out as though the person being questioned is more interested in confessing than the police who is investigating. So what felt like a big twist a moment ago feels immaterial now as the characters themselves don't seem to be taken aback.(more)

A problematic, convoluted thriller

When the revelations are made, you can't help but think back about all that we know so far and wonder what was the necessity for such a convoluted plot. The motives of the characters seem bizarre to say the least. Forensic procedures go for a toss, as the story bends logic any which way to its convenience. The actors also turn increasingly screechy with 'EMOTION' written in neon on their foreheads.(more)

Aishwarya Rajesh Helps Plan B Along With Focused Lead Performance

There is enough mystery in the story to sustain Thittam Irandu until the very end, where, as has already been emphasised, the film springs a massive surprise. But the process or, to be precise, the set of processes that it employs as it wends its way to the climax, isn't particularly exhilarating. (more)

Only if Vignesh Karthik had 'Plan C' for Aishwarya Rajesh starrer

Vignesh has this clever idea to exploit the trappings of the whodunit genre to his advantage and subvert the expectations of the audience. But somewhere between conceiving a clever idea and fleshing it out, the director loses his own vision. He seems so obsessed with the final payoff, he forgets to construct a compelling course of events that makes the final reveal as ground shaking as he imagined it to be. (more)

Thittam Irandu is largely okayish whodunit with a twist that is definitely something that we don't foresee, but the extent to which this twist works for you will decide how favourably you might look at the movie in the end.(more)

Aishwarya Rajesh's film has an important message but gets it wrong

Aishwarya Rajesh as a cop is almost perfect for the role. Her eyes convey the expressions and it is effective for a thriller like Thittam Irandu. However, at times, she isn't brisk while dealing with a high-profile case. Subhash, Gokul Anand and Ananya have delivered solid performances that helped in keeping the audience engrossed in the story. (more)

Vignesh Karthick aims to deliver an important social message but gets it awfully jumbled

Vignesh Karthick aims to deliver an important social message but gets it awfully jumbled. It is easy to imagine that this is his idea of a sensitive take on the issue, but it is so unconsidered that it seems he's written his film from news reports and TV debates. There couldn't have been this level of insensitivity if he'd ever seriously involved someone with lived experience in his writing room. (more)
