The Cast

The cast of Theri includes Vijay, Samantha, Amy Jackson, Baby Nainika, Mahendran among others. Talking about their performance, everyone has done justice to their roles. Baby Nainika steals the show, as her expressions and modulation is lovely and attracts the audience.

Vijay’s transformation is taken well and Vijay as Joseph Kuruvilla grabs attention, the modulation of Vijay Kumar IPS (Vijay again) could have been even more better. Mottai Rajendran has given a good performance.

Samantha and Amy Jackson as always have given their best and both of them look lovely on screen. Mahendran as Villain performs well though there were some rusty dialogues in between. Prabhu and Raadhika Sarathkumar performs well, but the scope in this film is less. On the whole everyone has given their best and done justice to their roles.

The Team

This film technically sounds good. BGM by GVP is an highlight in this film. It goes in tune with the film and gives the mass feel to the audience. Cinematography by George C. Williams is impressive, especially the Fight in the rain, Climax portions are brilliant. The visuals look stunning but the second half of the movie was a bit draggy and the dialogues have been well written. The cuts could have been even better.

Bottom line – A Mass Film for this festive season.

Certified Fresh – YES!
