Thandavam (U)--------my Rating: 3.5/5 HIT or may be SUPER HIT

* It is a family packed action thriller.......

* Cast , vikram has proved himself greatly after the defeat of "Rajapattai",fantastic performance as a blind man and he comes with a six pack before interval,Anushka was romantic in her first scene and follows, Amy jackson is waste...... * Nirav shah cinematography was superb and feels very pleasant to watch the entire movie with a pleasant feel.... * Story was fantastic and very perfectible....... * Music , G.v.prakash songs were not good except the second half songs are watchable than in first half, in the beginning of the movie BGM started well but he fails in the remaining plot....

  • Very major minus is the movie length which runs 167mins.... -


Screenplay sucks in the first half where fastens in the second half...
  • Santhanam does his best but his space was very little ... as we


understand that it is an action flick......

Finally ... It is a clean package entertainer with romantic scenes and thrilling chases..overall it is a perfect one time watch.......

The film is an action entertainer about a blind man with 'echolocation' power, who takes on a revenge mission. — at Sathyam Cinemas.
