Jiiva and Nayanthara has joined after a long time for Thirunaal, which is a rural gangster based movie. P S Ramnath, who did Ambasamuthiram Ambani has directed Thirunaal. M Senthil Kumar has produced the film in the banner Kodhandapani Films. The cast also includes Meenakshi, Sharath, Gobinath, Karunas and Joe Malloori. Srikanth Deva has scored the music.
Jiiva (Blade) works for the local rowdy Naaga (Sharath), he falls in love with Vithya (Nayanthara) who is a teacher and daughter of Naaga’s patner Joe Malloori. Later the situation turns that Blade realizes and stands against Naaga. What happens then is the rest movie about.
Jiiva looks apt in the role of a henchman, as an experienced actor he might have nailed it but there is something lagging in his performance. Nayanthara has done as a village girl, even though she has delivered good performance, its hard to accept her in that character as her looks are very modern. Sharath has done an appreciable work as a terrific rowdy, but the dubbing has reduced the intensity of his role. Joe Malloori’s character is well framed and he has executed it well. Karunas has done his part well. Gobinath as a police officer has performed well but in certain scenes it seems his expressions are excessive.
Songs in Srikanth Deva music are good, the song Pazhaya Sooru has got many fans. The lead character name is Blade, he supports a person who involves in many crimes like murder and rape. Though he changes later, why to include this much negativity in the film. The screenplay is confusing as there are many irrelevant scenes. Though the movie is a good entertainment package, its not enjoyable because of the very common story line about a rural gangster. This movie would have been a hit if it was released a decade back.
