H.Vinoth who gave us the riveting con film Sathuranga Vettai is back with a inspiring cop thriller which is also based on true events. Theeran A newly appointed DSP (Karthi) is not only honest but intelligent cop who uses common sensibility to detect and solve crimes. He doesn’t stop any cost to apprehend the culprit, whoever it is. This nature transfers him all over the state, until he lands up in Thiruvalluvar district where he comes across a old case file on gruesome murders and dacoity. When the crime happens again Theeran starts to investigate and to his surprise these crimes have a history of more than 10 years. As he investigates the case takes him throughout the country which has baffled every state police. Theeran and his team work tirelessly on the case but practical challenges and outdated archive methods of the system backtrack them. Even their personal lives get affected and they are mocked by their own colleagues. But as the gang makes another assault in their neighborhood, tragedy strikes on Theeran and his team. How Theeran manages to pull himself up and closes the case is the rest of the story.
Since this film is based on true events, the director and his team has meticulously gathered information on the events and of its nature. The amount of research done shows in the story and screenplay which elevates the film and makes it a must watch. Karthi as Theeran has put immense effort and stepped up his acting and physically had to be fit as it involved raw action sequences as most of film was shot in very tough conditions. Rakul Preet singh gave a decent performance, but her portion was a bit over cooked. Violence plays an important role in the film and some scenes are not for the weak hearted. Songs are hardly noticeable, but BGM was good. Special mention for Cinematographer Satya as his work in the action and desert sequences where visualized to perfection. Stunt choreographer Dilip Subbarayan’s action sequences where performed as real and believable sequences.Though the films slows down in the second half, the director manages to keep the audience on the edge of their seat..Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru is a must watch, I give it 7/10
