Idhaya Thirudan Movie review
Saran, disciple of K. Balachander, directs Idhaya Thirudan for his mentor’s Kavithalaya, produced by Pushpa Kandaswamy. Like all of Balachander’s movies, this has a totally different story and treatment with dialogues written by “Crazy” Mohan. This is a love story which starts out differently, and develops in an interesting manner.
Sheela Rani Raghupathy (Vani Viswanath) is the Home Secretary of the state, and Deepika (Kamna Jethmalani) is her only fun loving, freaky, college-going, pampered daughter. Since Deepika feels stifled by the strict constraints placed on her by her mother, she writes emails to herself, signed by some imaginary person T. Mahesh. When Vani Viswanath sees this mail, she asks ACP Mayil Ravanan (Prakash Raj), to investigate and take action against T. Mahesh. She also entrusts the job of apprehending a dreaded gangster (Nasser), who is hiding, to ACP Mayil Ravanan.
Though Deepika does not know him at all, T. Mahesh (Jeyam Ravi) is a real person, a student of catering technology, he also does not know Deepika. On the instructions of Sheela Rani, ACP Mayil Ravanan, mistaking Mahesh to be the person harassing Deepika, zeroes in on him, takes him to task and asks him to stop communicating with Deepika. When Mahesh protests his innocence, he is beaten up. Enraged, he goes in search of this person Deepika who has made baseless and false complaints against him. Gradually Mahesh falls for Deepika. In order to avoid Mahesh, Deepika enacts a drama. She proposes to Mayil Ravanan. However, a relentless Mahesh continues his love for her. A series of events results in Mayil Ravanan and Mahesh becoming friends. Meanwhile, through Sheela Rani, Mahesh's past is revealed. He is the son of the gangster (Nasser) in hiding. Elsewhere, Sheela Rani arranges for the marriage between Mayil Ravanan and Deepika. How opposite poles and contrasting characters attract, and sworn enemies fall in love is the tagline of the film.
Ravi, the hero, plays the part of a soft hero, unlike his usual hot and angry young man act in earlier movies. He has acted well. Kamna Jethmalani, the granddaughter of former minister Mr. Ram Jethmalani, is the heroine; this is her first film in Tamil. She has fulfilled her role quite well, better than can be expected of a debut heroine whose mother tongue is not Tamil. She has revealed more of her beauty in less clothes. Prakash Raj has lifted each scene with his presence and comic timing. Vani Viswanath has made a grand comeback as a Home Secretary.
Nasser, Kalpana, Kaka Radhakrishnan, Madan Bob, Ramesh Kanna, Santhanam, M.S. Baskar, Crazy Mohan and others are the other cast and Music is composed by Bharadwaj.
Commercial ingredients are mixed in right proportions, songs and stunts are also provided, and we also have an itme number by Jyothirmayi. Bharadwaj’s songs are pleasing to the ears.
