Review of Thommanum Makkalum
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the movie starts Thomman (Rajan P Dev) and his sons Shivan (Mammotty) and Sathyan (Lal) announce that they have decided to turn new leafs. They were thieves and now they want to work hard and live. So they buy a lorry, sing a song and before they could finish it, they end up in Tamil Nadu and the lorry breaks down.

They decide to spend the night on the road side. When Thomman says that he is hungry, Sathyan goes to look for food in a nearby house and comes back with a plate. Thomman has the food and soon he finds that the food was poisoned. Luckily he escapes. The food was poisoned by the owner of the house played by Janardhanan so that he could kill his children and die.

Since the movie is set in Tamil Nadu, as per Kerala State Law Section B Item 47, the movie must have a Thevar and the thevar must have a daughter and bunch of henchmen. We have seen this design pattern in movies like Mayilattam and Paandi Pada and this movie does not go out of the way to upset this pattern. Janardhanan owed the thevar lot of money and it was this frustration that led him to think of suicide. Janardhanan also has a beautiful daughter (Sindhu Menon). At this point we were about 30 minutes into the movie and could predict what was going to happen.

So Thomman and his sons fight with Thevar (Kalasala Babu), Thevar's daughter (Laya) and henchmen, sometimes all at the same time. They go through a sine and cosine curve of relationship and after 2 hours of song, dance, fight and colorful costumes, they resolve all issues. They even sing a group song to mark the occasion. At this point your brain is thinking, something is not right. If Thevar is not the villain, then who is? Then the villain appears for about 15 mins at the end and more predictable stuff happens.
