Critic Reviews Thodari

  • Times of India | Review By -M Suganth Rating-6/10
The best way to watch Thodari is to consider it as a spoof thriller. Prabu Solomon seems to have taken a leaf out of Radha Mohan's Payanam for this film, which feels novel because of its setting — a train. There's isn't a properly focused plot as such (at least until the interval) and the film chugs along like a series of incidents that happen inside a train.

  • Rediff | Review By -S Saraswathi Rating-5/10
Director Prabhu Solomon has never shied away from a tragic climax in his films and this keeps the audience in suspense till the end. Good performances and an interesting screenplay with plenty of fun moments make Prabhu Solomon’s Thodari a decent attempt.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Gautaman Bhaskaran Rating-3/10
If this is the idea of entertainment (punctuated with dream songs), it is awfully unrefined and just about unwatchable. Yes, Keerthy is a natural, the one redeeming feature in Thodari, and Dhanush gets down to playing -- all over again -- the underdog. His dialogue delivery and his other mannerisms remain boringly similar to his earlier works.

  • India Today | Review By -Srivatsan Rating-3/10
With a half-baked first half, Thodari falls completely flat in the second half, and ends up as a run-of-the-mill film. Neither the songs nor the soundtrack does anything to lift the film above the mediocre. There's one particular portion in the second half that leaves the audience with fists clenched.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Krishna Vamsi Rating-4/10
Even a powerful star like Dhanush has been underutilised in the film, thanks to the paltry script and its treatment. The entire first half struggles to build the idealistic romance. The second half is chaotic amusement packed in a train with media, NSG, RPF and railway managers messing the storyline.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Baradwaj Rangan
Bad movies make you laugh. Sometimes, they can make you cry.  At 168 minutes, the film feels as long as the train ride from Delhi to Chennai. My hand kept searching the air above my seat, desperately hoping for a chain to pull.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Anupama Subramanian Rating-4/10
Action sequences and visual effects are unbelievably tacky. While the first half moves at snail’s pace and fails to keep you hooked to the seats, the story picks up momentum in second half. Imman’s music is okay, but the placement of songs are bad.

  • Behindwoods | Review By -BW Review Rating-5/10
The major drawback of the film was that the whole play was made to look very superficial. As a script, it is exhilarating but it demanded a better execution. What was the National Security Guard doing? They seemed clueless and even the media officials shown in the film had better ways to cover the incident.

  • Filmibeat | Review By -Avinash Gopinath Rating-5/10
One of the main drawbacks of this film is its poor storyline that lacks guidance.Thodari is watchable for its fine performance from Dhanush and some exhilarating camera work, well supported by decent music. But, it could've been a lot better with better execution by Prabhu Solomon.

  • Manorama | Review By -Arathi Kannan Rating-4/10
It’s this uncanny mixing that makes Thodari difficult to endure. The Thambi Ramaiah interludes go from bad to worse. It runs devoid of tension, thrill or even a mild curiosity to see how it will finally end. The bright points are its lead actors—Dhanush and Keerthy.

  • Studio Flicks | Review By -Christopher Kanagaraj Rating-5/10
2 hours 47 minutes duration for this film is something which makes us yawn. Train stunt choreography is executed well. Post interval romantic portions are kind of irritating. Only strength in the movie is the comedy scenes and Radharavi’s portions. Hope Prabhu Solomon will bounce back with a good script.

  • AP Herald | Review By -Siva Kumar Rating-3/10
Nevertheless the script and the dialogs are so poor that they can't rescue this film. The film contains a sequence of unrealistic actions and decisions that most of the times will just make you laugh instead of moving you to the edge of your seat.
