Theeram Adhigaaram Ondru is one of the most intense cop-dramas of Indian Cinema but love track is irritating.
17 November 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru (2017): Most of the Indian Cop films treat the lead role as a super-hero and has all the extra sensory abilities to find the antagonist without any proper investigation.But Theeram Adhigaaram Ondru is a rare realistic cop thriller where the villain's whereabouts are found only during the climax by one of the most interesting investigations I had seen in Indian Cinema.

Plot: Theeran (Karthi), a police officer, tries to decode a series of cold blood events based on same pattern. Who's behind those ruthless events? How Theeran and team traces them? Did they succeed? forms the story of this crime action thriller. The story is based on true incidents handled by Police department in 1990s.

My Review: "Khakee" deals with the subject of organised bandits and also reveals the history of dacoit gangs in India from the British era to the recent times.Director H Vinoth has done huge research on several tribes of dacoit gangs, their crimes, how they indulge in robbery, how they hide, and their lifestyle.Not only has he done deep research, but has shown all these in the movie, making it more interesting as we involve more into the investigation.

These kind of cop dramas will work only if they have nail-biting scenes and this movie succeeded in providing us such intense experience.The film has full on edge of the seat moments which will keep you hooked till the end.The interval bang and bus chasing sequence in the second half literally gives you goosebumps.Even the scene where Karthi and his team are attacked by the whole village and the pre-climax scene where villain gang attack hero and his team in an abandoned village are shot exceptionally well.

The major drawback with the film is the torturous love track between Karthi and Rakul.The typical "Loose Ponnu" obsession of Kollywood had went overboard here as we get irritated by Rakul's characterization.The first 30 or 40 mins of the movie is just about their clichéd love story which tests our patience.

Director has done a very good job with the film. His detailing with the case is awesome and the way he narrated the film with ample action elements and racy chasing episodes make this film click big time. He keeps the film quite realistic which makes things even more interesting for the audience.Dhilip Subburayan's action scenes especially in the desserts of Rajasthan are superbly choreographed and Sathyan Sooryan's camera work is in sync with the story including the grey tone. Ghibran's music and background score creates the gritty feel.The film, despite its long run time, runs at a pace that makes it hard for one to look away.

Karthi is stupendous in his role as the protagonist cop who will not rest until he nabs the criminals and brings the killings to a halt.He has shown his mettle in the gruelling episodes shot in Rajasthan desert in the second half of the movie.All his team members have played their roles perfectly.Rakul is irritating.

So,Theeram Adhigaaram Ondru is one of the most intense cop-dramas of Indian Cinema but love track is irritating.

My Rating 7.5/10
