Gripping in most of the parts with some unexpected twists and turns. Perfect gambling!
4 March 2014 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Investigative thrillers are always a treat to watch. Unfortunately in Tamil cinema we don't have much movies in that genre. 'Thegidi' falls under this list satisfyingly as it takes the audience, an one hell ride filled with some twists and turns. In order to clear things up, this is not like 'Sherlock Holmes' but a simple and realistic crime thriller. Its all about connecting the dots by overlooking the small things which was not noticed on the first sight. Just like a novel the twists and questions unfold by raising the question 'What next?'. Ashok Selvan as a fresher detective fits perfectly. The scene where he shows his observation skills to his Professor, adamant about not using mobile phones, hesitating to fall in love with his case subject - this guy knows how to act! Janani Iyer looks beautiful and thankfully her role is very much realistic. Standing apart from stereotypic acting she stands tall as a perfect next door girl. Jayaprakash as a senior cop delivered a fitting performance. Director Ramesh has to be applauded for choosing the title as 'Thegidi' which literally means 'gambling'. Here he tried to convey up to which extent, some people will go just for the sake of money! He tried to make the movie as serial as possible and avoided all commercial elements except the romance portions. Music by newbie Nivas Prasanna boosts up the thrilling mood perfectly. The tension grows up during the interval block by the sudden turn of events and the music fuels our heart beat perfectly. His re-recording makes even the normal scenes as a pulsating one! Cinematographer Dinesh Krishnan experimented several different angles and it worked out well for a thriller movie. Editing by Leo John Paul is sleek and to the point as the movie runs for just 2 hours. Telling the whole story in the starting credits itself is a surprisingly new idea.
