> A cop vs an evil scientist! The ultimate clash!
This is definitely your regular Indian style film, but the script was top notch, that’s the vast difference you would find in this. It was a cop-thief clash theme something like the Korean film ‘Veteran’. Initially I thought it might be a remake of some Korean film, because it looks like a Korean thriller, but after learning that it was an original, I was amazed. Because, you know, the director has a nick name called remake Raja. He’s known for bringing the Telugu blockbuster to the Kollywood. That’s not bad and I’m not against remakes, he sure did do a wonderful job with those projects to succeed.
The actors were brilliant, especially like everybody saying Aravaind Swamy in a negative role stole the show. The plus point was minimizing the musical track. I mean the narration was not interrupted by unexpected and unnecessary musics and dances like usual Indian films does, except on one occasion I think. The two and half an hour was too long, but that’s the average Indian film length and totally worth it.
Not easy to predict, but in a few segments you would know what might come in the next scene. Because it might be an awesome film for the Indian audience who are seeing it for the first time, but in the world stage it is just an above average with partial cliché. There were a couple twists, the ending was excellent too, and looks like a follow up might come. My only disappointment was they missed a wonderful opportunity to make this film more realistic in the line of ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’. Instead, they opted to narrate it more commercially appealing way.
So if you are an Indian or watch regularly Indian films, you would find it great. I was impressed with the film’s promotions and it did well at the box office. Now it is getting remade in a couple of other languages, I hope they would as well do well. The brothers; the lead actor and the director did many projects together, but this one was a very special and will be a game changer for their respective career. So you might need to check it out if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m not saying it is a masterpiece, but if you know Indian cinemas, then would learn how unusual it is.
For Mithran (Jayam Ravi), the protagonist of Thani Oruvan, a person’s friend shows his character while his adversary shows his capacity. Mithran is a young IPS officer whose only goal in life is to find a worthy rival — a kingpin who is the root cause of all other crimes — and destroy him. He meets his match in Siddharth Abhimanyu (Arvind Swami, making a glorious return), an ambitious scientist-businessman, for whom money is all that matters. This is how Mohan Raja sets up the conflict in Thani Oruvan, an efficient thriller, which packs a mighty punch. Raja’s films so far have been competent remake efforts, but nothing prepares us for the smart writing (the director has co-written the film with writer duo Suba, whose experience in pulp novels comes in handy as it did earlier this year in Anegan) and the sleek filmmaking we see here.
The plot kicks in once Mithran learns of Siddharth’s plan of sabotaging a deal that would result in cheaper medicines for the poor and tries to thwart it without his knowing, but the wily Siddharth manages to succeed. Realizing that he has an opponent who will not stop until he is defeated, Siddharth begins a cat-and-mouse game with the cop. There are some terrific moments — the scene where an assassination plan swings both ways, the scene where Mithran discovers Siddharth has paid his place a visit, the scene where two lives depend on Mithran finding a bug, the scene where Siddharth negotiates with the chief minister. What is refreshing is that, to a large extent, Raja manages to avoid diversions in the form of romance and comedy. Mithran’s batchmate Mahima (an ideal Nayanthara) is in love with him, but she isn’t just a love interest. She is intelligent (a forensic expert) and fearless and an essential person in Mithran’s battle against Siddharth. In fact, when he says that he is ready to give up his life in order to bring down Siddharth, it is Mahima who makes him see his flawed approach to stopping crime. Yes, we get some fun moments with Thambi Ramaiah, who plays Siddharth’s father, but it is never at the cost of the narrative.
Thani Oruvan is a bit too long (Siddharth enters the picture quite late), there are leaps of logic (like the one involving a dubbed video evidence) that we are asked to turn a blind eye to, but such downsides are minimal. And even though it is a plot-driven film, the film gives us well-rounded characters, who lend the slightly far-fetched story plausibility. The film doesn’t shy away from showing Mithran for who he actually is — an angry young man whose ideals have turned him into an almost psychotic person. Crime, for him, is an obsession. What keeps him grounded are his fellow cop friends and Mahima. Jayam Ravi’s body language — the purposeful strides, the clenched fists, the stern face — displays the determination of the character but doesn’t really capture the craziness of the character.
But Arvind Swami aces the role of Siddharth. He projects the insouciant arrogance that tells us not to be taken in by his classy style which hides the character’s toughened hide, and it is no surprise that we even root for this character, the villain, when he makes his moves against the hero. ‘Show me your enemy and I’ll tell you who you are’, the film tells us in the beginning. With Siddharth, the film shows that you could paraphrase that statement and get the recipe for a thriller — ‘Show me your antagonist and I’ll tell you how effective your film is’.
Box Office hit needs Out-of-the-Box Thinking
As we all witnessed during the past 10 days or so, ‘Thani Oruvan’ got rave reviews and has been accepted by the film industry and audience as a benchmark movie. There is a transition happening in the Indian movie industry; that is driven by the audience. Today movie goers are well aware of the worldly events. The life-cycle of audience taste is short, meaning audience preference is undergoing change at a higher rate than ever before. The typical romance movie is no longer going to pull the audience. It had been already exploited by the uncountable number of movies in all the possible formats. So what is next? That is called ‘Thani Oruvan’ way! – A strong theme, embedded with authentic data & logic.
How it all started? Way back in 2013, director Mr. Mohan Raja met with a group of consultants from Fhyzics Business Consultants Pvt. Ltd., specializes in business consulting and business analysis (An EEP of International Institute of Business Analysis, Canada and REP of International Requirements Engineering Board, Germany). By that time, Mr. Raja was thinking about the story for at least 3 years. The one question he asked the group of consultants was “I want to make the movie authentic and different, how you could contribute?” Fhyzics was also looking for opportunities to explore the movie industry. Subsequently, Fhyzics team met the director few times and demonstrated how they can make it different. It clicked, and Fhyzics got its maiden movie project.
The assignment given to Fhyzics team is data and logic research for the movie project. The team researched the IPS training, minute-by- minute daily routines of IPS probationers and officers, costumes, usage of words & terminologies, technologies, background, analysis methods etc. The team also did intensive research on crimes both at national and international level from 1990 onwards to till-date. Organized the crimes under different heads and drawn the linkages. Prepared crime charts, time-to-time emotional graphs, hero vs. villain rise & fall maps etc. Even Fhyzics created a PPT that was presented to the producers by Mr. Raja to give them a holistic view of the movie. Massive amount of data and information were collected, organized in SharePoint (a Microsoft technology), then distilled and presented on weekly basis to the director for the entire duration of the movie making and it has been judiciously consumed in the movie without affecting the entertainment element of it. At Fhyzics, we profoundly thank Mr. Raja for the opportunity and helping us in launching our services in the movie industry with this landmark movie, ‘Thani Oruvan’.

Worth Spending – Best of its type
Minimally the movie is a must watch experience for all class cinema lovers.Thriller,Action,Some piece of Social message.
The movie has quite good characterization from the 1st level characters to the final level supporting characters are perfectly and beautifully mannered.
Aravind Swamy portrays the villain character as ‘Never before in Kollywood’.From his mannerism,body language,attitude he has shown much of evilness more than hat of the script wanted which suits the character perfectly.
My favorite scene of the movie would be the pre-climax sequence where Siddarth Abimanyu (Character) hears to his father’s words,The scene in the investigation room.
The movie totally emphasizes our Indian society and a battle of a ‘Single Man'(Thani Oruvan) who want to protect the society and a ‘Single Man’ Who knows only about ‘Money’
However, you have shown interest in the screenplay.The message of the movie will catch you surely! Go for it!
There is no speed breaker & a perfect song placement The Villain’s character is well designed and more special from other negative characters of Kollywood Cinema.This movie is totally different from M.Raja’s earlier movies.Unexpected turnings and easily catch-able screenplay.The best movie of this kind “GOOD vs EVIL”.You’ll have no reason to hate this film.
This movie is a ‘Gem Of Tamil Cinema’. Must watch movie for all movie lovers.Don’t Miss this Roller Coaster Ride 🙂
