Hands down one of the best films of the year.
2 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

IRUMBU THIRAI stars the action star Vishal in the lead role. I like his movies because they're action packed and entertaining. This one also is, but what it excels even more in is the screenplay as a whole. Taking the refreshing concept of cyber crime and turning it into an enjoyable action thriller is something very few directors are capable of doing, successfully. P.S. Mithran has done an outstanding job with this film. The theme and its projection is so realistic and close to reality, that I don't think a sane person would actually dislike it.

IRUMBU THIRAI is hands down one of the best films of the year; it deserves truck loads of awards. The film excels in character development, technical aspects, action sequences, emotions and edge of the seat twists. There is no romance or duets/dance numbers, something unusual and excellent for a film of this kind. Songs elevate the narrative to a higher level.

Vishal does an effective job in his role. He has brought out all possible emotions a brave yet tensed man can have when in trouble. Samantha is impressive and thankfully not just another heroine added without a purpose. Arjun plays a menacing villain whose actions can make you feel afraid of him at times. His character has been sketched extremely well. Other actors perform very well.

The film also has a great cinematography. Technically, this film is a pure gem. All the action scenes are simply flawless and executed masterfully. Not a single action sequence has any glitches and the visual effects are outstanding. The background score is pulsating and builds the tension and required impact efficiently.

The emotional sequences have been handled very well. The interval blockade is a complete blockbuster and raises the tension, while the action packed climax followed by an unpredictable ending is what elevates the film to a newer level.

IRUMBU THIRAI is an action thriller which every person, especially all Indians, should see because while it's highly entertaining, the issue it portrays is just so real that it can make us vigilant for the lifetime.
