Thirupachi - For Vijay’s fans

IndiaGlitz  [Monday, January 17, 2005]

There are many in the industry who make films with lot of pretensions. Actor Vijay is not one among them.

He knows what he is capable of. He knows what his fans are looking for. So without bluffing anyone, he makes his films for his constituency.

Though slightly bereft of originality or newness, his films never lets you down. It has typical ingredients to make you laugh, dance and sing.

Thirupachi has all that, though in large doses.

It is yet another movie about the hero taking revenge against a group of gangsters, who are responsible for his friend's death. Though inspired from the regular 'formula Rajni films' like Naan Magan Alla, Naan Adimai Illai and Vikram's latest Dhool, Thirupachi keeps up a decent momentum.

The director seems to have relied heavily on Vijay's mass image and Super Good Films that has made a name for itself by giving family melodramas has taken the plunge into a new genre for it. 

The movie begins in a remote village in Madurai where Sivagiri (Vijay), a blacksmith and his sister Karuppaih (Mallika) share a close bondage. Sivagiri wants to get his sister married off to a city dweller.

He along with his friend Kannappan (Benjamin) manages to find an alliance in Saligramam, Chennai. After the wedding, when Sivagiri comes to Chennai to leave his sister and her husband, he encounters rowdies and anti-socials who have a free-run in the city. He wonders why the city-dwellers are maintaining a mute silence to the anti-socials. 

In the meanwhile, he also falls in love with Subha (Trisha).

In a tussle at a theatre in Chennai, Pattasu Balu (Pasupathy) and Sagadai Saniyan (Kota Srnivasa Rao)'s men murder Kannappan. The death sparks a turn of events in Sivagiri's life. He vows to put an end to all criminals in Chennai and clean the city of rowdyism. The rest is all about how he achieves his mission.

It is a film for Vijay's fans who love their star to dance with energy, fight with enthusiasm and love with mischief. He does all this in his usual style. Punchline dialogues, songs glorifying hero find their place in all throughout the movie.

Trisha plays a typical Tamil heroine appearing only for duets. Mallika plays Vijay's sister

while Pasupathy and Kota Srinivasa Rao make loud noises.

It is a good opportunity for small-time comedian Benjamin, who plays Vijay's friend. He does his role well. Also in the cast are M N Rajam, Yugendran and Manoj K Jayan. Chaya Singh appears for an item number.

Music by Dhina is for the front-benchers. The highlight of this movie is the fast-paced stunts.

Perarasu in his debut venture has relied on Vijay's action-hero image.
