Here is another film from Director A.L. Vijay casting Vikram in the central character. The Tamil film Thandavam producers Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur were confident on Vikram from his previous films and the huge success of Deiva Thirumagal which was released in 2011 in which Vikram was also nominated for two awards namely Vijay Award for Favourite Hero and Filmfare Best Tamil Actor Award. Thandavam director A.L. Vijay who also wrote the story and screen play had Vikram in his mind while writing the story board and he thought Aushka Shetty would be the best choice for the heroine role in Thandavam with Vikram since the Chemistry between the two worked out well in Deiva Thirumagal.
Music Director G.V. Prakash Kumar after his successful Yathe Yathe in Aadukalam and many other hit films including Saguni, Muppozhuthum Un Karpanaigal, Mayakkam Enna, Deiva Thirumagal Narthagi, Angaadi Theru, Ayirathil Oruvan, Kuselan, Veyil, Kireedam, Pollathavan, etc. did a marvellous job in Thandavam with heat touching melody tracks.
In Thandavam Vikram shows a character of a courageous man with honesty. This film Thandavam is make emotional with tender moments where you will shed tears with proud as a viewer.
The emotionally touching music of GV Prakash’s melodious tracks make the film technically an art taking us to another world from our busy schedules. The star rated comic scenes make our mind relax in between to make it a family entertainer Tamil film.
The film Thandavam is set in London. And some flashback is shown in Thanjavur and New Delhi and the film starts with Vikram who is a Pianist in a church along with a blind person man. The blind character is on a revenge mission in London and the reason behind him is the series of bomb blasts. Later on our hero Vikram turns an obsessed killing machine. There comes the comedian Santhanam as Sathyan in Thandavam who is a taxi driver and a crazy fan of film star MGR fan. Vikram is also helped by Lakshmi Rai as Geeta who is a mystery woman in the film.
As the time passes Vikram gets in connection with the character Sarah. Sarah’s character is nicely played by Amy Jackson. Sarah is a beautiful model. Veerakathi who is a police officer in London suspects Vikram for the murders in London city. Later on when it is revealed that Vikram was a chief officer in the intelligence department the story become similar to Tamil Actor Ilayadalapathy Vijay’s super hit film ‘Pokkiri’. But the film has no similarities with Pokkiri. Thandavam is a must watch film or you miss a good Tamil film.
