An Wholesome Entertainer
28 September 2012 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

This is my first review. And i couldn't resist writing one after watching thaandavam. Its wholesome family entertainer. Vikram Carries the whole movie on his shoulders, Be it the suave cop or the blind assassin. Movie carries an air of suspense throughout the movie. Apart from vikram the other notable performances are from Anushka and Santhanam. To note down few highlights The sequences in the village are a scream!! Romance between Vikram and Anushka is very well done. You don't get to see the typical flying kollywood action scenes. Stunts are done in a very realistic manner. The whole team has given there heart out. Its not always you will get to watch such a clean entertainer. This movie is not without its flaws. Screenplay drags a bit here and there. But if you be patient you will realize that the movie was worth everything. This once again proves how sincere and honest an actor Vikram is!! Verdict : Don't Miss It and watch it with your family!!
