Tamil star Dhanush’s film, Thiru under the direction of Mithran Jawahar had a simultaneous release in Telugu today. Let’s see how it goes.

Story:

The film revolves around the life story of Thiruchitrambalam aka Thiru( Dhanush). His family, the conflict with father( role played by Prakash Raj)? Thiru’s relationship with his childhood friend Shobhana( Nitya Menen), forms the crucial crux of the film.

On-screen performances:

Both Dhanush and Nitya Menen just lived in the given roles. Their performance is a major asset for the film. The chemistry between Dhanush and Nitya Menen is projected in a super manner.

Legendary filmmaker cum actor Bharatiraja perfectly fitted in the grandfather role and his natural acting brings depth to the proceedings. Prakash Raj gets a meaty role and the star actor impresses with his performance.

Raashi Khanna is cute on screen but her role is limited to a few scenes in the first half. Young beauty Priya Bhavani Shankar is okay in her small cameo. Other artists who did supporting roles are okay in their roles.

Off-screen Talents:

Music by Anirudh is a huge plus for this family drama. While the songs are passable, the background works as a magic for the movie and elevates all key episodes.

The cinematography by Om Prakash is apt for the film’s setup. Editing work by Prasanna GK is fine as he kept the runtime within limits.

Production values are okay for this production venture from Sun Pictures.

Plus Points:

  • Dhanush and Nitya Menen
  • Middle-class setup
  • Music

Negative:

  • Familiar storyline
  • Predictable second half

Verdict:

In an overview, Thiru is a passable commerical family drama that has good first half. Though the second half is decent, the regular template narrative might not get universal approval.
