28 September 2012 | by (mumbai) – See all my reviews

Vikram is back with a bang! Returning as a silent but deadly blind revenge seeking hero, he takes center screen to kick butt. Infusing a credible premise with honesty, and peppering the film with tender moments, director Vijay creates an engaging drama that you're happy to emotionally invest in. Technically, Thaandavam is one of the best films to have emerged out of Kollywood in a long time. Add to that some peppy melodies from GV Prakash and comedy that goes with the narration makes it entertaining.It is Vikram and him alone who diverts your attention from the film's little logical script flaws and spellbinds you with an endearing act that is Thaandavam's biggest strength. Exuding menace with his expressive eyes and body language and the tiniest of tics to make flesh- and-blood characters out of Sivakumar IPS and Kenny the blind man seeking revenge, Vikram is simply terrific. Vijay with the help of Daniel Kish, an echolocation expert has made Vikram's blind assassin role credible and awesome.Technically it is Vijay's best film with superior eye-catching camera by Nirav Shah and peppy melodies by GV Prakash with 'Oru Paadhi Kadhavu' being the pick of the lot. The action choreography by Manohar Verma is awesome especially the fast paced fight scene when a blind Vikram is attacked by six foreigners in a London park.Please note inspite of some gruesome killings in the plot line there is no blood or gore, hardly any smoking scenes, no drinking scenes or even an item number. For an audience numbed by predictable Kollywood potboilers week after week, Thaandavam might take some time to settle into; go in with an open mind and enjoy the ride.

Well done Vijay and UTV for making a film that can be viewed by family audiences.very gud movie must watch!!!
