Here, Vetri is given the task of collecting detailed information on certain individuals, which he goes about doing meticulously. While trying to stealthily enter a person's house, Vetri is seen by Madhu (Janani Iyer), who happens to be visiting her friend's house.

Will Vetri track down the killer? Who are his friends and who are his foes? Will Madhu escape the killer's clutches? Watch Thegidi on the big screens to know!
Director P. Ramesh has brought to screen a wonderful plot with a tight screenplay that keeps the viewers rivetted to their seats. The way the director has ensured that there are no unwanted diversions and the way each character has been sketched, is very good. Though one feels the climax to be wandering towards expected lines, the director keeps everybody guessing till the last scene and shows that he still holds one more card in his hands to play. Ashok Selvan is proving to be an able performer. Though his previous project did not do well at the box office, his performance in Thegidi is sure to earn him a very good name. Janani Iyer is very natural and impresses in her role as Madhu. Kaali impresses with his casual performance. Kudos to Jayaprakash and Jayakumar, who are very good. The cameo by Sai as Kamalakannan is good. Dineshkrishnan. B's cinematography and Leo Jhon Paul's editing are top notch. Nivas K. Prasanna's songs have already received a good response, and his BGM maintains the tempo of the movie.
The makers and Ashok Selvan have a winner on their hands with Thegidi... A gripping movie with wonderful performances!
