It has become a strict ritual practice for almost every technician in film industry to try their luck into filmmaking. It’s music director SS Kumaran smug-bitten this time and he makes his debut directorial with ‘Theneer Viduthi’, which is supposedly termed as a light-hearted comedy entertainer by director himself.
The film has a simple plot in backdrops and it would have favored universal audiences if the screenplay was engrossing. Regrettably, it stumbles down halfway and has no other reason to keep the audiences intact.
The film revolves around two brothers (Aadith and Kodumudi), the breadwinners of their family through the profession of erecting Pandhals for marriages. Aadith falls in love with Reshmi, who happens to be the daughter of a sub-registrar. The problem occurs as in many Tamil movies and how the lead couple fight against the odds form crux of the story.
It’s a romantic drama and we expect more humor and emotional elements, which completely lacks here. A proper script work by SS Kumaran would have done justice to the script. Even the performance level of artists are just average and of course, they’re left helpless as they have nothing to emote here. The story is too clichéd and narrative structure leaves us drowsy.
The posters of ‘Thenneer Viduthi’ were rich and cool assuring that it would at least be a good visual treat. But again, it’s a disappointment to the core and songs by SS Kumaran are just average as none of them sustain in our memories.
On the whole, ‘Theneer Viduthi’ has nothing special to mark upon and SS Kumaran could have gone for a better start of his directorial venture.
