Thittam Irandu - A decent weekend binge-watch that requires patience!

Vignesh Karthick’s Thittam Irandu starts with a reality check of Aathira, a cop who falls in love with a stranger (Arjun) with whom she opts to share the co-sleeping space on a bus. While their multiple meetups result in mutual love, we are introduced to a conflict where Aathira's childhood friend Surya goes missing. Devastated by this news Aathira and her team find a seared corpse in a fully burnt car. As the Forensic report confirms it to be Surya, Aathira digs out to find the killer. What falls next in the engaging plot of  Thittam Irandu.

Vignesh Karthick has penned a neat thriller story with very minor flaws. The story gets faltered as it progresses to touch a sensitive nerve. The idea of taking a bold move to speak about the stereotypes and the mental trauma the queer people face must be applauded. What goes wrong is the usage of terms like "biological error" and "natural error". Though the thriller revolves around love, the cliche route the director chooses to portray makes us question the loose ends rather than empathise with the character. Speaking of Love the unsung affection of Kishore on Surya wins the show while the love between Arjun and Aathira falls flat.

The film runs for over two hours which is quite a decent time for a thriller. But it moves at its own pace which results in a lack of engagement of the audience. Though the screenplay is filled with twists the last 30 minutes of the film gets the whole credit. Aishwarya Rajesh as a cop has done a decent job in fulfilling what was asked of her. Her eyes speak a million words when she loses her best friend. Avoiding caked up looks in certain scenes could have made more justice to the role she plays.

All the other actors have done their best to give life to the film. Gokul Anand as Kishore, Subash Selvan as Arjun and Ananya Ramprasad as Surya have contributed enough for the progress of the film. Cinematography plays an important role in the film, as most of the scenes are shot at night. Cinematographer Gokul Benoy’s work is appreciated. On the other hand Sathish Raghunathan’s music and background score did not do much to the film's setting.

The Songs in the film don't stick to our hearts and the romance between Arjun and Aathira fall flat with dramatised liplock and forced affection. But the final reveal answers all the questions running in our minds in a neat and polished manner without offending any community of people. But a deeper understanding of it before attempting will be appreciated.

The final twenty minutes of the film converges all the loose ends and makes us re-imagine the previous portions. Every dialogue holds a strong feeling and one has to wait till the end to witness the whole essence of the film. Overall Thittam Irandu is a movie with a social message but fails to register it on a stronger note. It is an absolute weekend binge-watch but requires patience. Go for Plan B (Thittam Irandu) if your Plan A did not work out.

Rating: 2.5 / 5.0
