Irumbu thirai is a hard hitting on the current digital world and how common man is innocently caught in it. it does openly show people how their information is used and circulated without their knowledge and how they are deceived too.More than just preaching, it also educates them to a certain level. Vushal is apt to role and does give a good performance, more than him Arjun takes command and the second half and totally dominates the screen. Samantha does a very subtle role and breezes through. Mithran the debut director has done a decent research and constructed a good screenplay which makes the film strong. Though the first half could do with some trimming the second half is fast and ends decently. Music and BGM plays is good and elevates the important scenes. Irumbhu thirai is a decent cyber crime thriller to watch i give it 6/10
