Thoongavanam Review

The film is a Racy & Slick thriller where the lead comes up with very innovative things in story. The racy screenplay and music are the highlights of the film. Worth watching the remake of ‘sleepless night’ in tamil with action packed performance.

The film could have made little more tight as it loses the connection with audience for some couple of minutes. Prakash Raj is far excellent in his role. Background score let down some screen play. The starting 1 hour is far interesting and you won’t understand how you spend such time as the movie is damn interesting in the start.

The gripping tale is said to be the king of this film, the shots taken in pub are amazing. It is said to be better than his previous film Uttama Villain.

Thoongavanam review by Taran Adarsh

“Perfect entertainer rave 2 hours and heart touching relation between Kamal and his son, commercial elements lacks with no glamour, no smoking and no romance but still engaging to the audience, did not disappoint me and hope other critics this time”

He also says “Awesome character with very tight screen play, Trisha is seen equally brilliant in acting”

Acting Performance

Nailed the character and justified them completely whoever is he in picture. Every character in the film has just made up to the mark may be it Prakash Raj, Trisha or Asha Sarath, Kishore and his son. The lead actor is highly impressive and steals the show.
