Cinematic Gem from South India
6 September 2002 | by (alaska, usa) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, ThanNeer ThanNeer easily makes its way into the list of best films ever made. In fact, after all these years since its original release, this film still ranks among the top 5 Tamil movies I've ever seen (and, I've seen a LOT of Tamil films). Mr. K. Balachander is a director of formidable talent and has always had a reputation for making films that are thought provoking and entertaining at the same time. His works are generally well received at the box-office and are also critically acclaimed. ThanNeer ThanNeer is a poignant human interest story and a biting political satire that succeeds at several levels - technical, artistic and emotional. It is a story that has universal appeal and yet works exceedingly well at the local level. I don't know how the translations / sub-titles hold up since one of Mr. Balachander's fortes is the clever use of Tamil language puns and nuances to heighten the impact of the dialogue. I highly recommend this movie for any one interested in what Indian cinema has to offer outside of the standard issue song-dance-and-slums-of-Calcutta fare.
