Streaming on: Sony LIV
Language: Tamil

Story: Athira (Aishwarya Rajesh), a police officer is assigned a missing case where the victim is her best friend. What unforeseen shocks welcomed her during the investigation and was she able to solve the case or not forms the rest of the film.

Performances: Aishwarya Rajesh has done well as a police officer and carries the entire film quite well. The supporting actors were all good, however Ananya Ramprasad, who played the important role of Deepa Surya felt a bit underwhelming in the serious scenes.

Technicalities: Camerawork is decent but doesn’t match the brilliant work that is being presented these days. Background score and editing are appropriate. Dialogues are good, especially towards the end.

Analysis: The story of the film is a typical investigative thriller. There is a missing person, there are suspects and some clues. The investigation scenes are all handled in a fairly engaging way. The love portions too take some time but maintain interest with a sense of mystery to it. What worked for the film is the placement of twists and turns at regular gaps to keep surprising the viewer. There are some logical loopholes but all those will be forgotten when the shocking unexpected climax twist arrives. Though the twist is totally unpredictable, the way it is presented felt over dramatic and slightly forced just to somehow address and convey an important message. Despite these shortcomings, the fairly engaging screenplay and the mostly unpredictable twists make for a decent watch.

On a whole: Thittam Irandu is a decent investigative thriller with some good twists. Definitely worth a watch without high expectations.

Rating: 2.75/5
