Irumbu Thirai is a very interesting film to watch
The unrevealed truth of the digital world is enlightened by this cyber action thriller flick Irumbu Thirai. This film is a kind of information packaged commercial entertainer. P.S.Mithran serves us a full meal of everything. There are action, emotion, comedy, and the usual commercial elements that it needs but is it really necessary for Irumbu Thirai. Well, Mithran starts well the film with a strong 10 mins introduction where he shows us the initial issue that he is going to talk about but the next 30 mins after the title card seem to drag the overall film down. He uses the time to establish the hero's arc and his personal background but it all feels like the usual commercial drama that we use to watch. Establishing a character doesn't need a flashback to explain his or her past and especially, Irumbu Thirai has the initial premise that we needed to go with it instead of adding characters and their own flashbacks. Besides the flaws, Mithran has pulled off an excellent topic through this film and presented it in an engaging and compiling way. He has delivered a warning message to the people and adds so much information that he had properly researched. The lead actor Vishal's performance seems to be fairly engaging. He is playing the typical action hero role that he used with it since his Sandakozhi days. As the female lead, we have Samantha playing a very interesting role. Unlike the typical heroines that we have seen in commercial cinema, we have Samantha playing Rathidevi, a psychiatrist who is helping Kathiravan (Vishal) in his journey. She is not there to love Kathiravan or to romance him but to wake him up. She is the source of motivation and the one that makes him realize his responsibility. Irumbu Thirai will be always remembered for one man's effortless and that's Arjun. In the past decades, Arjun has played the type of patriotic hero who fights for his country. He is known for saving India from terrorists and fighting against corruption but in Irumbu Thirai, he is a pure antagonist. He is an intelligent digital world don who has the power to do everything that he wants. In real terms, Mithran is trying to awake people from their long addiction to social media and technology with Arjun's role. The lift scene where Arjun encounters Vishal is information loaded one and a must-watch. Yuvan Shankar Raja's intense background score lifts the film perfectly. In fact, the theme music that he has done for Arjun translates well the evilness of the White Devil character. Overall, Irumbu Thirai is a very interesting film to watch.
