Thirudan Police….Just like any other movie which has a plot with an irresponsible grown up son with a disciplinary father, loving mother and a sweetheart to long for along with an interesting and a funny best friend. You can ask what makes “Thirudan Police” different from others? Well that’s where debutante Caarthick Raju works his magic wand of stellar cast and a good story. How the irresponsible lad realizes his mistakes and reforms forms the crux of the story which takes few interesting turns in the course of events.
Thirudan Police gets interesting with it’s interesting characters which were chosen well. The lead played by Dinesh has different shades which was carried off with elan by him, he is getting better with every movie and have proved now that he is going to be in the industry for a very long time. He gives a commendable performance as the spoilt kid as well as the one who is on the verge of becoming a responsible one. Dinesh can make you cry with his convincing performance, the scenes where he realizes his mistakes is quite a touching one, it did jerk few tears. At the same time he makes you laugh hard with his torture techniques, which makes it more hilarious.
Rajesh was seen on screen after a long time, and as Dinesh’s father he had few words in the movie to speak, but his character stand tall throughout the movie, the father-son conflict was shown well with tender moments.
Iyshwarya Rajesh was an eye candy and you can keep looking at her endlessly, she had less scope for performance here but whenever she’s on screen you can see a gleam on your face, especially in those traditional South Indian Sarees.
This review will be incomplete if I don’t mention the 2 fine characters of this movie who had impeccable comedy timing. That would be Bala Saravanan as Vanagamudi and Rajendran as Manickam. Bala plays the best friend and he is that friend that anyone would like to have in their life, because a friend like him can put a smile on your face anytime. He holds on to the character very well and entertains you throughout. Rajendran, terrific timing in comedy and acting, he truly deserves a “5000 rubees Increment” . I laughed so hard after a long time. Even his blank expressions were hilarious, and when he dresses up like a women holy mother of god he cracked the entire cinema hall so loud, that it took sometime for everyone to settle down. He’s the integral part of the second half. These two were well supported by the funnily etched out character John Vijay as Maravattai.
The cinematography by Siddharth was good which was supported by the great duo of editing Praveen K. L. & N. B. Srikanth. Music by Yuvan was good with couple of melodies and a good background score.
Caarthick Raju deserves a pat on his back for dishing out a stress buster which is what everyone required at this time, Thirudan Police is a clean entertainer bearing a simple plot with tweaked cliched moments, which makes this one stand out. Definitely worth a watch, catch this one after a long day at work, you will not regret a bit!!!!
+’s – Great performances with impeccable comic timing.
-‘s – At few places it gets draggy with melodrama.
