Movie Reviews

Thozha (2016) A critic and layman’s review!

‘What you lost, can only be found in the place you lost it!’ on its own stands to have a lot of meanings. ‘Thozha’ extends it to human emotions and strikes in the belly of the beast.

‘What you lost,  can only be found in
the place you lost it!’ on its own stands to have a lot of meanings. ‘Thozha’ extends it to human emotions and strikes in the belly of the beast.With a mind-boggling good main cast, the movie is a definite feel good film.

Who but ‘Nagarjuna’ can use nothing but his expressions i

n a full-length movie and still make the viewers feel that ‘Oh My God, he is such an ammmmaaaazzziiinnnggg actor!’ Nagarjuna has managed to make what was probably a very difficult role seem like it was no big deal. Without the use of anything but his facial expression, he has done an amazing job as a billionaire. ‘Karthi’, as usual, has done a good job as a fraudster who turns good. Prakash Raj, with a much lesser scope with respect to his role, has done an amazing job at making his viewers think about his character even after the movie ends. With an even limited scope, Tamannaah does a good job, remembering not to overdo it any point. Every other actor or actress does an exemplary job at their work!

 

The humor, of course, makes the audience clutch their stomach laughing in a lot of the scenes.

With an exemplary output from the cast, editing by Praveen.K is just perfect and eases you from one scene to another without making it obvious. Cinematography by P.S.Vinod is just the way you’d want it to be. Every single shot in Paris just makes you fall in love with the city and just wish you were the one on the trip.

While the music tracks might not have been hits outside of the film, they have been fit seamlessly into the movie and amplify your love for the movie.

True, if I had to find an issue, I could easily mention the CG which in places, are pretty obvious and make you think that the shot could have been taken differently, in a  way, they fit the bill and differentiate the reality and imagination, which is the case in which most of the CG’s have been used.

It is often the case that remakes don’t make much of an impact, but despite being the remake of a french movie ‘The Untouchables’, ‘Thozha ‘ has found it’s placed in theaters in Chennai with screaming audience.

A simple story of the bond between a quadriplegic millionaire and the guy who becomes his caretaker makes it easy to understand what is happened, enjoy it and have an overall exciting, funny, enjoyable 158 minutes.

I would give it a 3.7 out of 5 happily.
