Thimiru Pudichavan Movie Review: Vijay Antony, whose initial films like Naan and Salim, won rave reviews for its content, gradually steered towards full-fledged commercial movies with ample dose of heroism and emotions. Thimiru Pudichavan is the latest to join the list — this film, too, is no different from a few of his recent flicks that were standard good vs bad battles loaded with ample sentiments and heroism.
Murugavel (Vijay), a sub-inspector from Virudhunagar, is disappointed with his younger brother going on the wrong path. Annoyed with his elder brother’s constant advice, the latter runs away to Chennai. Murugavel, who gets posted to Chennai after two years, finds that his brother works for Padma (Sai Deena), a goon who hires minors to commit crimes. He kills his brother due to an unavoidable circumstance and vows to change the lives of people in the town who are scared of Padma. Enter female sub-inspector Madonna (Nivetha Pethuraj), who, along with a few other cops, joins Murugavel to nab Padma and free the youngsters who are in his clutch.
Thimiru Pudichavan is a routine cat-and-mouse game between a brainy cop who also flexes muscles and a dreaded criminal. Like every other cop, Murugavel, too, advises people around him, falls in love with the heroine, tries to change the system and bashes up the baddies (ruthlessly and unbelievably). Though the performances of Vijay Antony, Nivetha and Sai Deena are competent, what lets down the film is its shoddy screenplay, just OK-ish production values and over-the-top stunt sequences.
The film does have a few engaging moments in the second half and a message for youngsters, but tests one’s patience with too many logical loopholes. A hero suffering from insomnia with a wrist watch displaying his blood pressure level, based on which he behaves, appears lame. A decent screenplay that doesn’t resort to weird histrionics and exaggerated action scenes would have made the film a better watch. The lack of unnecessary duet songs and annoying comedy track are a relief though.
