Thimiru Pudichavan Review: Audacious Vijay Antony Shines As Angry Cop
Old wine in the new bottle is the right expression for Vijay Antony's latest offering Thimiru Pudichavan. But as wine gets better with aging, this cop thriller also clicks with the target audience. With a Baahubaliesque promo song featuring a 500 feet statue of the protagonist of the film, Vijay Antony rose the expectations about the movie.
We have seen hundreds of cop stories and we know how such stories work. Here, in Thimiru Pudichavan, Vijay Antony plays Murugavel, an audacious police inspector. Murugavel doesn't approve of his younger brother's behavior. He constantly finds fault with the youngster which leads to the boy running away from home.
When Murugavel is transferred to Chennai on promotion, to his shock he finds his brother turned a criminal working for a local mafia leader alongside several other youths. Juvenile criminals. Murugavel kills his little brother in an unfortunate incident. Grief-stricken, he decides to bring the teenagers from the clutches of the dreaded gangster. How he does this with the help of other cops including Inspector Madonna form the rest of the story.
Vijay Antony is impeccable as in the role of a sincere cop. His body language is authentic. This is one of his best roles and he carried the entire movie on his broad shoulders literally and metaphorically. Nivetha Pethuraj who played Inspector Madonna is fun to watch. She has good chemistry with Vijay Antony. Sai Dheena as the gangster Padma who employs juveniles is brilliant. The young actor who played Murugavel's makes an impact with his memorable performance.
Ganeshaa must be commended for throwing light on juvenile criminals despite the story being a regular good cop versus gangsters. The narration is slick and the screenplay moves smoothly without any bumps. The way he brought out the emotions in the scenes where the brothers confront each other is pretty good. The interval block is stunning.
The musical score by Vijay Antony himself is excellent. The cinematography by Richard M. Nathan is first rate. He captured the atmosphere quite well. The editing by Vijay Antony is without any jerks and brings out good pace to the proceedings. The action sequences are over the top. Production values by Vijay Antony Film Corporation are decent.
On a whole, Despite its regular and age-old story, like an old wine, Thimiru Pudichavan entertains the target audience (read mass audience) very well. Slick narration, the top class performance by Vijay Antony and excellent direction by Ganeshaa makes this movie a decent watch. It has a conflict point which can appeal to the class audience. A better than one time watch.

Vijay Antony all the way
Vijay Antony is known for playing intense roles. He has built up his acting career carefully by selecting characters which suit his body language.
