In ‘Thupparivalan’, Mysskin has come out with another gripping investigative thriller. And perhaps for the first time, a leading action hero has joined hands with him, to add more strength to the product.
The story: Kaniyan Poonkundran (Vishal), a detective, is desperate for a case that would throw enough challenges at him, but in vain. One day, he finally gets the case for which he was waiting for all these days.
It is about a murdered dog and its missing tooth. As the investigation starts, in the company of his friend Mano ( Prasanna), a death happens, adding more to the mystery.
Kaniyan Poonkundran and Mano continue with their investigations. The chain of crimes takes them to a gang of ruthless criminals, led by one Devil (Vinay).
Now Devil is after Kaniyan Poonkundran and Mano, as he gets a whiff of Kaniyan’s investigation and vows to bump him off before he exposes his evil plans, which are laid out in a neat manner.
Vishal is rock solid as a detective and he delivers goods scene after scene. Equally good is Prasanna, who as hero’s friend, has delivered solid performance. Vinay is chilling as evil man.
Arrol Corelli comes up with special score for Mysskin and he is at it again. Karthik Venkatraman’s camera has done nothing short of a magic, as it adds more the mystery. Other technical departments too are good.
Though the film has some negative points, or loopholes, there is no denial that it is a griping tale from beginning till end. If you are a lover of Sherlock Holmes works and would love to watch it Tamil version, head to a theatre screening ‘Thupparivalan’.
