Theri Tamil Movie Review
Joseph Kuruvila (Vijay) and his daughter Nivi (Nainika) lead a simple life in Kerala. Joseph is a calm person who stays away from any trouble. Annie is Nivi’s teacher and she has a crush on Joseph.
One day, a small incident leads us to a series of events and it is finally revealed Joseph is actually Vijaykumar IPS. Honest to the core, he however quits his job after tragedy in his family.
And the reason behind the tragedy is a politician (Mahendran), as Vijaykumar locks horns with him after his son commits a crime. The rest is all about formulaic things of the hero winning over the villain.
Theri is a package of Sathriyan, Baasha, Anniyan, Yennai Arindhal and few other movies. Despite Vijay making all efforts to deliver goods, cliched script and exaggerated presentation pull things down.
Atlee, who was accused of getting heavily inspired by Mouna Raagam in his first film Raja Rani, has borrowed scenes from many super hit movies of the past, in Theri. With Vijay at the helm, he could have certainly put more efforts.
Samantha, as Vijay’s lover and wife, is regular heroine, but does well. Amy Jackson doesn’t have much scope to perform. Rajendran does what Janakaraj did in Baasha, while Mahendran and Radhika are good. The icining on the cake Nainika (Meena’s daughter), who is cute and brilliant.
G V Prakash Kumar, in his 50th album, has done a decent job. George C William’s cinematography is technically good. On the whole, Theri is a typical masala entertainer which will certainly satisfy Vijay fans.
