Thupparivalan is a Tamil movie directed by the popular director Mysskin. I have seen two other movies made by him – Onayum Aattukuttiyum & Pisasu and liked both. So I wanted to see this movie too.
One thing that sets Mysskin apart from other directors is his gripping narrative style. You cannot think of taking your eyes off the screen even for a moment, although the story is average, the plot has a lot of holes and inconsistencies, there are no songs, the fights are artificial and,
For the first time, there is so much gore and violence. Pisasu and Onayum Aattukuttiyum, in contrast, were movies that had the potential to be gory but the director chose to make them emotional affairs. Hmm…
This movie did not need all that violence. I suggest not taking kids with you to the movie hall!
There were a number of places where we think why did the character had to do this, but the director skillfully compensates all these flaws using his inimitable style of narration. I really missed his emotional touch, which was predominant in his two previous movies.
But I liked this movie as well. There was not a single frame where I was bored. If you like horror movies, I guess you’ll like this movie even more. I don’t think this movie belongs to the detective/mystery genre – it’s more of a thriller. Although the movie is quite long, it didn’t feel long. There are no songs in the movie and they weren’t required.
A good & different movie featuring a private detective. Do watch the movie in a theater – Tamil cinema is trying to move closer to Hollywood quality while still keeping the commercial elements intact!
BTW, I forgot to mention that Vishal and Prasanna are the leading actors. Maybe that’s because the movie belongs to Mysskin right from the first frame 🙂 That said, I should mention here that the main antagonist (Vinay Rai) did one hell of a job. His action gave the jitters to all 🙂
