We get to see some films that not only present some exciting moments but also get etched in hearts for quite some time due to their novel theme or because of the brilliant execution. One such film which got these both was Thittam Irandu (Plan B) streaming on SonyLiv digital platform which was on a roll after back-to-back successes of Thaen and Vaazhl in Tamil. Now it’s a hattrick for this digital giant!
The film opens with Athira (Aishwarya Rajesh), a police officer meeting a stranger Arjun (Subhash Selvam) in a bus while travelling together. This chance meeting turns into love at first sight which blossoms further and reaches the marriage phase.
While investigating the missing case of her childhood friend, Athira comes across some startling facts which leave her shocked. What are those unexpected facts and how Athira has managed to solve the mystery behind the missing of her friend was the other side of the story of Thittam Irandu.
Aishwarya Rajesh not only looked glamorous, but even her performance also was par excellence that has given the whole film a graceful look without any typical cop dialogues or gravity defying-stunts.
The new face in Kollywood, Subhash too has exhibited his talent and he got some of the best scenes where he has excelled to prove his talent.
Gokul Anand as Kishore, Murali Radhakrishnan as Naveen, and Ananya Ramprasad as Deepa Surya, the friend of Athira acted well in their respective characters.
Behind the scenes
The writing and direction of Vignesh Karthick were exponentially great. He along with his screenplay team deserves all the appreciation for presenting the taut and well-designed thriller with a spellbinding climax. The whole narrative was full of exciting moments all through the plot that made the total film interesting to watch.
The background score and the montage songs composed by Satish Raghunathan were superb while the camera work by the Director of Photography Gokul Bendy was equally appreciable.
The editing by C S Prem Kumar was slick without any aberrations which was the cleanest editing work in recent times.
The novel theme and building up of the suspense element throughout the film were the key elements of Thittam Irandu (Plan B). The climax leaves everyone shell-shocked which was the lifeline of this film. Go for it even if you don’t like thrillers, you won’t be disappointed.
