Thenali Raman trailer review

One stark reason why you should watch this film? It’s precisely because of Vaigai Puyal Vadivelu striking on a comeback note during the election season (quite a relevant phase to his real life and some experiences). Thenali Raman might seem to be travelling on the similar lines of ‘Imsai Arasan 23m Pulikesi’ due to the treatment and Vadivelu playing dual roles.

The film is directed by Yuvaraj Dhayalan, who earlier made ‘Potta Potti’, a cricket based entertainer that starred cricketer Sadagoppan Ramesh in lead roles. The film’s trailer has a running length of 3 minutes and there is a lot involved in this duration. Apart from the humour elements, it touches the political grounds of leadership and we feel it is purposely done to influence the mass audience during the period of elections.

‘Thenali Raman’ has some punch dialogues that doesn’t focalise on the protagonist, but in turn relates to the present scenario of introducing new measures for the betterment of people. Moreover, the trailer ends on a note of taking piggyback ride on real life Tamil warrior. It’s been a common thing for many actors and filmmakers to claim their fame by using this tag and it’s not possible to say how far this dialogue has close connection to the script and screenplay.

With so many interesting actors being a part of this film, it turns to be an exciting reason to watch this film. Technically, the background score by D Imman, the grand set works, cinematography and sound effects are done with a top-notch panache.

On the whole, ‘Thenali Raman’ trailer gets a new feel and indeed erases from our memories of Vadivelu’s long absence in the industry. But the dual role of Vadivelu and a similar touch of many social issues and messages conveyed to the present scenario reminiscences of ‘Imsai Arasan 23m Pulikesi’. But it’s just a trailer buddies, we will have to wait and watch for the full length feature.

Verdict: A replica of ‘Imsai Arasan 23m Pulikesi’???
