To watch or not?: if you have too much time to invest in a drama as shallow as the movie’s lighting that stays the same in every house the characters move into.

It’s scattered. We meet two strangers who meet on a bus ride. The two become friends pretty quickly. Turns out the girl (Aishwarya Rajesh) is a police officer. She is suddenly in charge of a case. Her now distant childhood friend is missing and she must find her. What she discovers, she finds in the plot of the film.
Thittam Irandu Movie Review: Script Analysis
I understand that movies are written in a three-act structure. Sometimes filmmakers tend to break it and mold it according to their story, but its essence/cause remains the same. Let’s not even fix it. Even if you follow the basics, Thittam Irandu is a scattered mess that opens up from a different angle, tries to solve a completely alien bizarre mystery and ends up with a morals science lesson. (I’m definitely not humiliating the conversation that’s started. I’m pointing to its execution).
Written by Vignesh Karthick herself, the film begins about a girl Athira (Aishwarya) and boy Arjun (Subash), who meet during a bus ride. They mingle so much that a righteous police officer cheats on the bus conductor to get Arjun’s number. This is, of course, an important opening for all that is about to go wrong. And you have already felt that the world will collapse, and Arjun will stand on top of it with a hammer.
For the next 20 minutes or so, they bond and finally fall in love. For starters, we now have a case where Surya, Athira’s childhood best friend, is missing and probably dead. Who is the killer? Begins another predictable investigation. CCTV images are examined and only Athira can decode them, because lead of course! And wait, when even Surya’s husband filed an FIR, he randomly called Athira and she started the investigation.
Thittam Irandu is full of such predictable and above the surface things. The writing that promises to be this heart-wrenching ride never really materializes. Finally, if you feel like someone is finally trapped, and they’re going to have to struggle to get out, voila, creators are planning to reveal the true story and well, it’s not exciting at all. Whoever chose the word “thriller” to define this movie, even after knowing the story, probably didn’t even think twice.
I’m all for films that talk and discuss representation. But when you finally talk about it at a speed that no one can comprehend, the attempt is just as good and you give it a crush. This is also not the way sex reassignment surgery definitely works. I would suggest that the writers really would have done some research for the same.
Thittam Irandu Movie Review: Star Performance
What can the actors do when the script itself puts them in parentheses and tells them to survive within those constraints. Each character is one tone, wafer thin version of people who existed in movies 5 years ago. Take, for example, Athira, also known as Aishwarya Rajesh. She gets one expression, and when she breaks it, it feels like a drastic change. After meeting a stranger three times, she calls her mother and tells her to stop looking for a man on marriage sites. She is a police officer and a quirky girl as defined; Take note.
Only Subash Selvam gets the toughest part and the actor does a decent job. He brings a layer or two to his character and adds at least a bit of “thrills”. Rest all are rehashed versions of characters we know.
Thittam Irandu Movie Review: Direction, Music
Vignesh Karthick makes it look like he shot the entire movie in one day; Aishwarya’s constant same expression helps. Filmmaking requires effort, and even the most poorly rated films have put a lot of ‘khoon-paseena’ into making them. When a writer-director chooses to tackle a taboo topic, he must focus on his main conflict. And not just for a few minutes, but plenty of time for it to be registered in the mind of its audience.
Unfortunately, Karthick doesn’t do all that. It looks like a well wasted topic.
Thittam Irandu Movie Review: The Last Word
I wish someone could have alerted them to the lack of glue in the script to tie everything together. Also some more research and a lot more depth. All in all, you can skip it.
