Perhaps the most self-aware performer in Tamil film is Dhanush. He is aware of his advantages, and portraying a regular Joe is one of them. He is also aware that portraying viewers honestly and openly on TV is the quickest way to win them over. That is why you keep seeing movies like Thiruchitramabalam, VIP, Thanga Magan, and Naiyaandi. After a while, it was encouraging to read a straightforward love tale that was written with such affection for the characters you end yourself falling in love with.
This serves as a timely reminder that the stakes in a movie don’t always have to be huge; they might be as basic as a guy attempting to get over his trauma and sadness in order to meet the love of his life. Filmmakers are progressively losing the ability to portray romantic love stories. And I just finished telling you about Thiruchitramabalam.
The simplicity of Thiruchitramabalam is unmatched. In other words, it begins with a voiceover, and no, there is no quick fix. It does not serve as a tool for exposition; rather, it enhances the character of the movie. Dhanush portrays Thiruchitramabalam (also known as Pazham), a meal delivery man for a website named Doink. If the name sounds strange, it’s because it is. He bears the same name as his grandfather, Bharathiraja, who is essentially a close friend. They always have a beer together as part of their daily ritual.
The teenager receives many dating advice from the grandpa, a former Casanova, but Pazham is unable to find true love. The boy and his policeman father Neelakandan have a rocky relationship. He has resentment toward his father, which manifests as wrath. In addition to his grandfather, Pazham also has a close friendship with Shobana (Nithya Menen), and they have an interesting and engaging relationship.
In the movie, Nithya Menen performs far more tasks than Dhanush, and she doesn’t even appear to be trying. She is a joy to be around and demonstrates how a strong performance can make an ordinary screenplay shine. Right away, you find yourself supporting her. You can’t get enough of veteran director Bharathiraja because he gives the movie such a happy mood. Because none of these characters perform the predetermined tasks that are expected of them, they all seem realistic. while somewhat unable to move
When Neelakandan asks his father if he has become a burden to the grandfather and son, the elderly man doesn’t respond emotionally. Instead, he acknowledges that he is a burden—a good one, at that. Thirchitramabalam differs from many of these inspirational movies in that the melodrama is replaced by uplifting reason. There is a great deal of heart and thinking.
