Reviewer's Summary - Pitiful|
Actors: Jeeva, Sridevi, Shrutika, Vivek, Nasser, Devan
Screenplay, Dialogs & Direction: Brinda Sarathi
The birdbrained morons who made Thithikudhe ought to be soundly flogged for subjecting us to such agony.
Thithikudhe director Brinda Sarathi has as much creativity as a 5,000-year-old Egyptian mummy.
We watched the Bollywood version of Thithikudhe - Jeena Sirf Merre Liye - and considered it awful. But bad as it was, the Hindi version was miles ahead of this Tamil rubbish. The Hindi version at least had Mallika Sherawat and Kareena Kapoor.
Except for Nasser and Vivek, none of the other so-called "actors" in Thithikudhe seem to have the faintest idea of what they are doing.
What inspired debutant director Brinda Sarathi to pick up this sophomoric script for his first film is beyond the ken of yours truly.
Although jarring at times for its disconnect with the main theme of the movie, Vivek's comedy is the only passable element in this movie. Watching Vivek reminded us of that other great Tamil comedian Nagesh.
To fill our cup of woe, Vidyasagar provides us atrocious music in Thithikudhe.
Childhood friends Venu and Anu are separated after Anu's father is transferred out of the place. When they part, Venu and Anu are just 10 and eight respectively but make a pact to meet annually at the Hanuman temple on a hillock.
Although they never meet for 10 years, the childhood friendship inexplicably turns to love as Anu and Venu grow up.
But before Brinda Sarathi lets the love-lorn pair come together, they - and the audience as well - have to travel a hard and rocky road.
Thithikudhe was made in Telugu as Manasantha Nuvve before the Hindi version came out.- Copyright SearchIndia.com.
