Thirumalai
Reviewer's Summary - Mediocre

Language: Tamil
Year: 2003

Director: Ramanaa
Producer: Pushpa Kandaswamy
Story: Ramanaa
Screenplay: Ramanaa
Music: Vidyasagar
Dialogs: Ramanaa

Thirumalai offers little that distinguishes it from a gazillion other mediocre Tamil movies.

Featuring Vijay and Jyothika in lead roles, the movie is basically yet another poor guy-rich gal love story.

A young poor motorcycle mechanic Thirumalai (Vijay) falls in love with Shweta (Jyothika) the daughter of a rich TV channel owner (Ashwin).

Although the girl rebuffs his overtures initially, she eventually falls for him setting in motion events that frame the rest of this movie.

But the course of true love never runs smooth, or so Tamil movie directors firmly believe.

The bad guys in Thirumalai are Shweta's father and the thug he hires Arasu (Manoj K.Jayan) to break up their romance.

Vijay has demonstrated time and again that he can act. But the young lass Jyothika is a different story.

With her wooden expression and all, it's a mystery how this buxom lady made it into movies. She's plain awful in Thirumalai. Also, there's very little chemistry between the lead pair on the screen.

Raghuvaran - who counts among the few good actors in Tamil movies - is as always a treat to watch and one of the few saving graces of this movie as is Vijay's performance. Unfortunately, Raghuvaran has a limited role in Thirumalai.

Vivek's so-called comedy scenes about a youth forever landing in trouble vis-a-vis his job interviews are absolutely sophomoric and mar the smooth flow of the movie.

Vidyasagar's music is not bad but does not rise to great heights either. Neeya Pesiyadhu Anbe song has been shot against the backdrop of the Pyramids in Egypt but was still not gripping enough.

In its favor, Thirumalai is a fairly fast paced movie.

As is par for Tamil movies of this genre, there are quite a few fight scenes, most of them bizarre. Peter Hain is credited with handling the stunt scenes.

We found the Thimsu Kattai "dance" scene (shot in Europe somewhere?) featuring Jyothika and Vijay absolutely hilarious. Gosh, if what they did is a dance, then I'm Queen Elizabeth.

Although a run of the mill Tamil movie, Thirumalai struck a chord with the audience and had a good run.- Copyright SearchIndia.com
