Attakathi Dinesh made his debut with the film prefixed to his name and later won incredible laurels for his critically acclaimed flick ‘Cuckoo’. Now he settles down with a much emotional drama in ‘Thirudan Police’. The film is directed by Caarthick Raju and is produced by SPB Charan. Iyshwarya of Rummy and Pannaiyarum Padminiyum has played the female lead role. Rajesh, Aadukalam Narain, Naan Kadavul Rajendran, John Vijay, Bala Saravanan and Nithin Sathya have played important roles. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music.
Attakathi Dinesh plays Vishwa, who brings disregards to his father Rajesh, head constable. He always locks horns with assistant commissioner’s son (Nithin Sathya). When Rajesh threatens to reveal all the illegal activities of Nithin Sathya and the misdeeds of AC, the latter kills him through his bunch of hooligans (Naan Kadavul Rajendran and John Vijay). Commissioner of Police (Aadukalam Narain) offers the same job of deceased Rajesh to his son Dinesh. But Dinesh is not convinced with the work and decides to give it up, but on the spur of moment changes his mind feeling the pains that his father suffered during the service. He now takes his mission of finding the culprits responsible for the murder of his father and bring them before justice.
On the performance level, Attakathi Dinesh scores brownie points. He emotes very well in sentimental scenes than trying his luck with humour. Actor Rajesh might not appear in many scenes, but keeps up a fantastic job. Iyshwarya doesn’t have any sequences to showcase her potentials and she just keeps herself walking with modern outfits throughout the film. Aadukalam Narain stuns us with his performance. John Vijay and Naan Kadavul Rajendran are supposed to be baddies, but in contrast they keep tickling your funny bones.
The first half has some good moments, but the momentum drops during second hour. Nevertheless, the humour we come across during the climax turns to be more entertaining.
Musical score by Yuvan Shankar Raja is good in background, but in songs, it’s yet another disappointment except the song based on the father-son relationship.
On the whole, Thirudan Police deserves a watch if you aren’t really concerned about the logic missing and if your need is all about entertainment.
Verdict: Fun and sentiments together
