THADAM (2019) TAMIL REVIEW #thadamreview #thadam #tamilmovie . . . ๐Ÿ“œ Plot: The murder of a youngster creates confusion among cops when they discover the suspect has a lookalike. . . . . ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš–๏ธ Review : Thadam is a distinctive crime mystery thriller released in 2019. Based on true events, this movie highlights a genuine loophole present in the laws of our country's judiciary. Thadam has an intriguing premise and a tight screenplay which keeps you booked till the end. The suspense is never diluted untill the end kudos to the spot on alignment of flow of events. The plot takes time to settle down in the first half, the second half is outstanding with the interesting investigation developments which makes you anxious.

Arun Vijay is a revelation during the entire course of the movie, he displays brillant variations in the characters of Ezhil and Kavin with subtlety. Fefsi and Vidya provide brilliant performances as the Police Officials. The only disappointment was the poorly written female leads characters of Tanya Hope and Smruthi Venkat.

Director Magizh Thirumeni has articulated the screenplay so tight that you stick to your seats and astounded with the plot twist in the end which makes this movie worth a watch. . . ๐Ÿ‘Goods : 1. Arun Vijay is Outstanding 2. Realistic Investigative Thriller 3. Intriguing Screenplay . . ๐Ÿ‘Ž Bads : 1. Movie takes time to settle . . ๐Ÿ”ฅ Final Rating : 8/10 . . โœ… Verdict : Thadam doesn't disappoint as a whodunit thriller and has ample engaging moments, thanks to its gripping screenplay. Definitely worth a watch. . .
