Mithran R directed the film Uthamaputran. Thiruchitrambalam is Jawahar's return to directing Dhanush after a long gap. As this film has been released today, reviews are being released in the media.
Cine Ulagam website gave a positive review saying "Director Mithran R. Jawahar's direction is spot on. The screenplay moves smoothly without faltering at any point. The dialogues are the strength of the film".
Talking about the story of this film, "Thiruchitrambalam (Dhanush), who works as a delivery boy, has not spoken to his father Neelkandan (Prakashraj) for the last 10 years due to an accident in his life. Shobana (Nithya Menon), who has been Thiruchithambalam's close friend since childhood, takes part in his good and bad life. .
On his way to deliver food to a house in Thiruchitrambalam, he randomly meets his school crush Anusha (Rashi Khanna). Thiruchirthambalam confesses his love to Anusha as the two begin to get a little closer. But Anusha did not accept that love.
After this, Thiruchitrambalam, who was languishing in love failure for a few days, falls in love with another woman for the second time. A relative goes to Thiruchitrambalam for a wedding, where he meets a girl named Ranjani (Priya Bhavani Shankar). Thiruchitrambalam, who starts to fall in love with him as soon as he sees her, is disappointed again.
Thiruchitrambalam, who laments that both the women he fell in love with and did not love him, is told by his grandfather Thiruchitrambalam (Bharathiraja) that he loves Shobana, who is only with you since your childhood. After this, Thiruchitrambalam, who begins to fall in love with Shobhana with some reluctance, confesses his love to Nithya Menon. Has Shobana accepted Thiruchithambalam's love? or not?, the rest of the story of the film is whether Thiruchitrambalam anger towards his father subsides or not," says Cine Ulagam.
"After a long time, 'Thiruchitrambalam', released as a populist film in Tamil, does not disappoint the audience on screen." The Hindu Tamil daily also mentions that.
"The biggest strength of the film is its character choices. All the actors not only fit into their respective characters, but also deliver perfect performances.
Dhanush is very handsome. Even though he returned to Hollywood in a coat-suit, he managed to fit in as a middle-class guy and boy-next-door in a casual t-shirt and pants.
He is intimidated by his nonchalant acting, unique body language, assaulting his father by calling him 'him', treating his grandfather as a friend, acting only with his lips in sentimental scenes. Nithya Menon's performance gives meaning to 'Girl Bestie'. The song 'Kannale Pesena Naan Ena Karene' really suits Nithya Menon.
Rashika Khanna and Priya Bhavani have given a demanding performance in the role of Shankar. Prakashraj again as a father after Viruman. Not only as a police officer, as a father, as a father to a son, he also thrills us in some sentimental scenes.
Bharathiraja's performance stands above all. He has been used perfectly on the silver screen. His humor scenes make us laugh and enjoy a lot. Bharathiraja's performance will definitely appeal to new audiences like Nakkal, Lollu. Munishkanth, Aranthangi Nisha, M. Ramasamy score in their performance even though they have few scenes" Hindu Tamil says that all those who have acted in this film have acted well.
The website of Dinamalar daily says that it is a realistic love plus family story without unnecessary fighting, grandeur and obscenity. "There is no one single for comedy in the film. The main characters are the main characters who make us laugh every now and then with timing dialogues. After the interval, the film diverts to Dhanush's family's village trip. But there they stick with a love story. Then it recovers and ends well.
Anirudh - Dhanush combination will make the songs sing. The songs did not satisfy the alliance formed after a long gap. Only the old lady's song makes me dance a little. The feeling of having heard all the background music before," says Dinamalar daily's website.
