Prabhu Solomon always has the knack to mesmerise audience with beautiful scenery and natural narration, so when he teams up with Dhanush , expectation is very high. Thodari starts very sluggishly with disconnected scenes and slow narration. But it makes a strong impact at the end of the first half. Dhanush carries the whole film on his shoulders but with a weak screenplay ,his burden becomes heavy. Keerthi Suresh does a decent job. The story is spoilt with lot of sub plots and wayward narration. Songs doesn’t impress and are placed in awkward places which irritates the audience. Vfx is a mess and makes lot of scenes weak. With a lot of things in the plate , but few which stands out , Thodari gets only 4/10
