What is good and bad aspects of Jagame Thandhiram movie review? Ignorance and Identity, there is an assumption especially in majority of India the Tamil people only hails from tamilnadu in India. This film breaks this ignorant notion by showcasing the story of Tamil migrant that had to find their identity and restart life all over again and various paths all over the globe. This represents individual from srilanka who saw immense tragedy during civil war and fled to various nations hoping, praying and seeking that government can acknowledge their existence and call some place home. In Jagame Thandhiram movie review, this film successfully brings in the forefront the debate around the country stance of refugee and their identity. Foreign Actors, it is also seem as the most of foreign actors put forth such stiff performances while sat in London the true English man performance by Peter Sprott was true to his legacy.
The Second half of movie is Technically Exceptional the music composed by Santosh Narayan complement this film so well and the background score to several action sequences well perform and executed especially one when Suruli run in the corridor with the make shift bomb. In Jagame thandhiram movie review, the Song that describe the Shivadass attitude and the way his gang function also was such an innovative take and solidify the fact that music integrated well into the storyline. I fell in love with editing of this film as well by Vivek Harshad who introduced the primary character like avatar fighting one v/s one game. The cinematography and colour grading by Shreyaas Krishna and Suresh Ravi respectfully also stands out.
In Jagame thandhiram movie review, the Writing is one of the main reasons why this film is eventually become the one time watch or above an average gangster film because it resort the tropes that we have already seen. The family drama, romantic storyline and the impact in the Character like Suruli takes in the direction that we can see the miles away. The second half has this abrupt tonal shift which is educational for many but it impact on the protagonist is so fast just through a dramatic speech that take away the momentum of why we were loving the ruthless attitude of a man in a first place. The use of flashbacks and vision of trauma utilize to make the Suruli the man of conscience.
