What Is Good
- Vignesh Shivn keeps the proceedings lively
What Is Bad
- Nowhere Near Special 26
- The suspense magic is missing
- Nativity feel also lost
- Keerthi Suresh
Anirudh's background score is adequate, while of his songs, none except Sodakku meet the expectations, as Peela, the title song and Naana thaana are forgettable. Dinesh Krishnan's Cinematography is top notch as it captures the 80s milieu recreated beautifully, while also presenting the songs colorfully. Editing is crisp and that's a big savior. After succeeding with an original movie Naanum Rowdythaan, this time around Vignesh Shivan has opted for a safe remake of the hit Bollywood flick Special 26, with a huge star like Suriya with him.
But to be honest, Vignesh Shivn has let go of an opportunity to recreate a massive entertainer, as he has completely messed with the screenplay, lacing it with an overdose of intended comedy, that actually bores than evoking laughs. The whole gang and their gameplan are made to look funny on screen, but end up as a joke on the audience, with only Suriya's act acting as a saving grace for the movie. While Keerthy Suresh is given a funny role that's sure to be a subject of trolls, the rest of the cast including Veterans like Ramya Krishnan and Karthik are completely underutilized, making Thaanaa Serndha Koottam, a okayish experience, despite having a crisp runtime of just a little more than 2 hours. All Said, with poor execution of a great plot and some interesting performances by Suriya and Ramya in vain, Thaana Serndha Koottam is just above the pass mark!
A BIG BOOST at the Box-Office Last week, young hero Karthi's next flick post the success of cop flick Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, the rural entertainer Kadaikutty Singam was released, and though the movie had a huge star cast, and had emotions and action, it has been finding it tough to sustain at the box office.
