Better refund your tickets if you’ve already booked your tickets for this film. Is it quite shocking to you all? Of course, shock is better than getting annoyed after watching this show. The film is a whole lot of dosage of what Telugu Cinema had carried through where villain yells out in deep high voice – ‘Evarura Neeru… Antha Petha Manusha’ ‘Dai… and followed by echoes of Dae… Dae…Dae… Thiskoraa…’
So funny, isn’t? Thoranai has a whole lot of stuffs of these sorts as audiences can enjoy a ride of playing spoofs. ‘Dae Naa Yaarunu Theriyuma… Naa Enga Appaneya Kola Pannuva… Oops! You can’t bear the ludicrous show by Vishal-Vikram Krishna brothers that’s more and more absurd. Right from the beginning till the end, Vishal keeps sings his own appraisals of punch dialogues and precisely, Prakash Raj and Kishore aren’t far enough as they compete with hero on these quotients.
Much before Murugan (Vishal) arrives in Chennai searching for his brother Ganesh who parted away during his childhood, he happens to witness couple of kingpins of underground dealing Tamizharasan (Prakash Raj) and Guru (Kishore). Indeed, he turns to be a witness for the murder committed by Guru in busiest spots of Chennai. On the mission of finding his brother, he comes across a beautiful girl (Shriya Charan) and falls in love with her. At the point, when he gets closer to the situation of finding his brother, he’s exposed for a great clash only to get shocked that one of them is his brother.
Vishal does nothing exceptional other than jumping from floors of height and hitting baddies. Mark the timings of chasing one another and subtract them; half the movie’s duration is reduced. And do the same with punch dialogues… Well, quarter of the flick’s duration is done. Saba Iyyappan much before the film’s release had stated Vishal has excelled with comedy tracks. But everything he does except comedy goes a laugh-riot. Let it be his punch dialogues, dancing, conveying reforming messages and more, everything looks ridiculous. Shriya Charan exposes her body to extreme and her size zero is sure to pull away her dwindling market to culmination of no-offer zone. Prakash Raj and Kishore have done justice to their roles while Santhanam’s rib-tickling comedy tracks add relief to the audiences.
Musical score by Manisharma is unimpressive and rests of the technical aspects are off the same credits.
Screenplay is completely flimsy on all occasion except climax fight sequence drama.
On the whole, ‘Thoranai’ has no chances of topping the box office charts and it’s yet another flop show in the line of Vishal’s home banner…
Bottom -Line: Disappointing on all vistas
Verdict: Please don’t risk yourselves…
