Thodari – Review by Naveen

Break Journey

                                    Thodari                                                                                                                              – Review

Since ‘Mynaa’, a love story set in gigantic backdrop has become the style of Prabhu Solomon. If mountain was the mood of ‘Mynaa’, forest was the flavour of ‘Kumki’ and tsunami was the toast of ‘Kayal’.
While the first two ventures were hugely successful, the third was a moderate hit. And the fourth in the line- ‘Thodari’- the ‘first Tamil film to be fully made in a moving train’- is such a bumpy ride. In short, it’s not like travelling in a Delhi-Chennai Express train, but like commuting on a local road in an autorickshaw.
The story: Poochiappan (Dhanush) is a pantry worker in the Delhi-Chennai express. He works under the team led by Chandrakanth (Thambi Ramaiah). It’s love for Poochi when he meets Saroja (Keerthy Suresh), an assistant to an actress, who travels in the same train.
The train has a motley bunch of passengers of various characteristics, including a central minister (Radha Ravi) and his NSG commando (Harish Uthaman) who has temper issues.
Even as the train is moving fast, its driver dies of cardiac arrest. The express develops technical snag too and it becomes unstoppable. Now Poochi has the multiple tasks of saving the train, its passengers and his love.
Prabhu Solomon has apparently tried to make a ‘Titanic’ in a train, but he has made a ‘Tamizh Padam’ like stuff. From serious to comedy, the script wanders here and there, ending up nowhere. The story not at all takes off in the first half.
Dhanush and cinematographer Vetrivel Mahendran are the biggest highlights of the movie. They try their best to shoulder heavy burden. Keerthy Suresh and Thambi Ramaiah are okay, while D Imman’s music is average.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
