Sakthi (Gautham Karthik), an engineering graduate, runs his own business with his friend Balaji (RJ Balaji). Their shop is located at Ritchie Street, popular for electronic goods, in Chennai.
Asha (Shraddha), who comes to his shop as a customer, initially has some unpleasant moments with Sakthi. But they turn lovers soon.
As it happens, Sakthi gets an opportunity to fix CCTV cameras in the residence of a minister Devaraj (Super Subbarayan). But he is not paid for that.
Sakthi decides to take revenge on the minister. While doing so, he finds that Devaraj is involved in a big scam, which would affect engineering students. What Sakthi does to achieve the twin purpose- revenge and saving engineering students- forms the curx of Ivan Thanthrian.
Close on the heels of Rangoon, Gautham Karthik has come up with another impressive film in Ivan Thanthiran. Directed by Kannan of Jayamkondan and Kanden Kadhalai fame, the film talks about the plight of engineering students.
Gautham Karthik performs well, and Shraddha looks cute. But the show stealer is RJ Balaji, who tickles the funny bone of the audience well with his one-liners.
Music is by SS Thaman and his BGM in action sequences are good. To list out the negative points, certain scenes are too predictable and cliched too.
But still, Kannan has ensured that the film turns up racy and crisp. Besides, it also delivers a message too. All said, Ivan Thanthiran is a decent flick which keeps us engaged enough.
