What Is Good
- Samuthirakani acting
- Female lead
What Is Bad
- Too melodrama
- Over preachy
Thondan's story is all about Vishnu (Samutrakani) a full time do-gooder who also happens to be an ambulance driver with the track record of 1363 lives saved and 142 children born in transit. What happens next causes further trouble for the hero and his family and how he outwits the minister’s son and brings him down is the rest of the preachy screenplay.
Kudos to Samutrakani for paying tribute to Jallikattu protestors at the very beginning of the film and also for repeatedly reminding the youngsters that they should never let the fire die down in many scenes. Vikranth, Sunaina and Soundararajan have acted decently and have done justice to their roles. Samutrakani himself had made the direction for the movie splendidly and his powerful speech is the asset for the movie.
Justin Prabhakaran as usual has given some lilting tunes and the one that immediately catches attention is "Vaasamulla Poovaa". His BGM is ok in most places but thunder on the ears when giving buildup for the hero. Cinematography by Richard M Nathan and N.K. Ekambaram and editing by A. L. Ramesh pass muster. The technical aspects is made neatly.
Samutrakani’s intentions are honorable and he has surely driven his messages home, but has failed to give an engaging film if not an entertaining one. But while we can appreciate the good intentions of the director, as a filmmaker, he does his film an injustice by making it preachy. Samutrakani's power packed dialogues sometimes are boring. Thondan plays out like the movie equivalent of a moral science class.
