Capsule Review: Theevandi (6 Stars)
18 September 2018 | by TejasNairSee all my reviews

Fellini TP's Theevandi reignites my faith in Malayalam cinema, the same way Sethu's Oru Kuttanadan Blog (2018) diminishes it. The degree of novelty in Fellini's approach as well as writer Vini Vishwa Lal's writing is laudable as they superimpose a stark social issue hampering the Indian youth's lifestyle and future into a light story that is politically powered to attract its main audience (Keralites). The makers got me when they added an explicit reference to the dangerous Blue Whale Challenge game somewhere in the second half and I was floored. The super talented Tovino Thomas stars as a young, jobless man who gets up in the morning so that he can smoke through the day. He has no regard for his loved ones and treats them like the butts of the cigarettes that he smokes like he's making passionate love with those slender cylinder-like structures. Thomas and his co-stars act like Theevandi is their final film, as Fellini comes out with a cardboard message about the cons and only cons of tobacco consumption. Watching Theevandi and the collection of refreshing jokes and local and social references is a treat, which makes it a great watch despite the predictability of the plot, and the unneeded gimmick at the end. It's a film that everyone should watch and then recommend it to people who smoke. As a second-hand smoker, watching so many people smoke so many cigarettes throughout the 130 minutes gave me a bit of cancer scare.
