Thiruchitrambalam is a family drama film directed by Mithran R Jawahar.The film is produced by Kalanithi Maran under the banner of Sun Pictures. Jawahar is a Dhanush veteran having made 3 films earlier with him.
Jawahar the writer doesn’t try hard with the script in THIRUCHITRAMBALAM. He packages the regular Dhanush ingredients like anti-dad, next door boy image with the underdog crown to cook up a cuisine that doesn’t surprise but is largely edible. While the first half is fairly engaging, the second half has a lot of melodrama and average humour that works in parts. The predictability of the trajectory in the film is a letdown alongwith the unnecessary action block.
Dhanush is at ease in this kind of roles. Nithya Menon is back after a long hiatus and scores. Prakash Raj and Bharatiraja are their usual selves. The rest are okay.
Om Prakash’s cinematography is decent. Anirudh delivers as expected. Prasanna’ss editing is neat. Dialogues are average and direction rudimentary.
THIRUCHITRAMBALAM is a plain, orthodox and foreseeable film.
