In these COVID-19 times, an actor who has come to prominence with OTT releases is actor Satyadev. He has proved his mettle. Emerging from his solid strength, he has created a thriller called “Thimmarusu”, which appeared on the screens today.
“Thimmarusu” is also the first release after the second wave of coronavirus. Let’s see how the movie fared.
A taxi driver is found murdered. A young boy is convicted of the murder of this taxi driver. Eight years later, he is paroled and a young lawyer Ramachandra (Satyadev) takes on the case of damages (a case of damages).
Ramchandra soon realizes that the innocent boy has been framed. Ram Chandra is intelligent and has the mind of a detective.
His girlfriend (Priyanka Jawalkar) and his friend Sudha (Brahmaji), both lawyers, help him in this case. Ramachandra thinks the case is complicated, with many dark secrets.
The rest of the drama revolves around a lawyer’s quest for the truth.
Performances by artists:
Satyadev got the chance to play a normal “hero”-esque character. He delivered it neatly. He’s less of a lawyer, more of a detective in the movie.
Priyanka Jawalkar as his girlfriend is misplaced. She looks too fat and her character is poorly written. The romance between them is sparse and dull.
Brahmaji has tried to laugh a little. Ajay as an evil police officer fits the role perfectly.
Ankith Koyya who played the innocent victim did a neat job.
The film has quite ordinary technical values with Sricharan providing suitable tracks. The editors could have been sharper. The dialogue writing is also pretty weak.
The Mysterious Corner
The last portions
Lots of loose ends
Allegedly based on a Kannada movie, “Thimmarusu” is essentially a whodunit story. However, the presentation and screenplay do not follow the routine.
To the simple “murder mystery” the original writer has added some elements to make it look trendy and stylish.
The story is told from the point of view of four characters, with each story giving a different dimension.
The dimensions sparked interest in the initial phase, but after a point the director also seems to have lost interest in them. Thus, the third and fourth dimensions are packed clumsily and hastily.
While the later parts are gripping, many scenes are quite routine. They also defy logic. The character of Satyadev does not behave like a lawyer, but like a detective.
The crime took place in 2011, and the hero reopens the case in 2019. But all the characters remember the incidents from eight years ago in a crystal clear way, which is incredible.
Whenever the hero hits the roadblock in the investigation, he gets a sense of an incident unfolding before his very eyes. It looks again a case of convenience than organic.
The biggest disappointment is the villain. The main antagonist is too weak and the motive for his actions is not at all surprising. These are crucial for any thriller. We are told that the villain is powerful and has taken care of everything to destroy the evidence, but in the final act the villain acts as a novice.
New director Shravan Koppisetty has failed to process many scenes. Too much artificiality in the way actors behave is an example to mention. The Pooja sequence of Satyadev and the heroine Priyanka is another example of how clumsy the direction is.
In the end, the film becomes a battle between Rama and Vaali (the mythological connection), and there is also a historical perspective – ‘Thimmarusu’, which justifies the title. The full title of the film is – “Thimmarusu: Assignment Vali”.
The lack of gripping narration and slow drama doesn’t get us involved in the process. The tension builds slowly with real drama in the second half of the film. Too much detail has also marred the procedure. The sensation factors are very few.
Overall, “Thimmarusu” is a murder mystery that tries to be clever at times, but doesn’t rise above the mainstream thrillers.
