Thiruchitrambalam Story

The story of Thiruchitrambalam keeps track of its main protagonists’ journey from their early adolescence to adulthood.

Thiruchitrambalam is the fulcrum of the movie, around whom, the plot develops and thickens. For convenience, we will call him “Thiru”. He works as a delivery boy in a food company. Thiru lives with his father and grandfather. Thiru’s father Neelakandan (Prakash Raj does justice to this role) is a strict police inspector. Thiru avoids talking to his father as he thinks Neelakandan’s negligence caused death of Thiru’s mother and sister in an accident. Only one person that Thiru shares his problems with is his childhood friend Shobana (played by Nithya Menon).

In his quest for love, Thiru falls for Anusha, his childhood crush. He tells everything to Shobana and seeks her help. Guided by Shobana’s advice, Thiru proposes to Anusha but to his utter surprise, got rejected. Anusha confesses that she only flirted with Thiru and apologises to him for faking love.

Meanwhile Neeelakandan suffers a stroke. Thiru reconciles with him. They visit a village to attend a wedding ceremony where Thiru meets a girl namely Ranjani (Priya Bhavani Shankar) and develops some romantic feeling for her. Shobana also attends the event. Thiru again seeks her help and Shobana arranges a meeting between them. But Ranjani refutes Thiru’s proposal, saying that she does not want to get into relationship with a stranger.

Thiru returns to his home with a heavy heart and tells everything to his grandfather who advises him to think about Shobana. Thiru started to feel for Shobana, whom he has always thought as a good friend. But when he approaches Shobana, she rejects. It leaves Thiru embarrassed, bewildered. He cannot make out what has gone wrong with his life. Shobana even stops talking to him. Shobana leaves for Canada for a job and asks Thiru to meet her at the airport. Unfortunately, his car was stopped by the police and by the time he reached the airport, shobana has already boarded her flight.

Thiru blames himself for spoiling his friendship with Shobana. Later Thiru gets to know from Shobana’s brother that she has loved him since she was in her 6th grade and always treasured all gifts and letters from him. It was Thiru who failed to understand her feelings.

At the end of the movie, Shobana comes back to India and Thiru apologizes to her for having ignored her feelings. They reconcile and get married.

Thiruchitrambalam Movie Review

Thiruchitrambalam is a light-hearted romantic drama. With a budget of only Rs. 30 crores, the movie has done well in the box office. Till date, its global box office collection has crossed much beyond 100 crores. The movie, which is now in the 100-crore club, has become one of the biggest hits in Tamil cinema. Both critics and movie geeks have given positive Thiruchitrambalam reviews. However, hits are not a new achievement in his film career. The movie has been made available on Sun/NXT since September 23.

After his wonderful performance in movies like Polladhav Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Vilai Illa Pattathari, Thiruchitrambalam is going to be another stellar addition to the actor’s crown. Dhanush has delivered one of his best performances in the role he has played in the movie. A few words of praise cannot summarize the way he has got into the skin of the character with his sincerity and commitment. The movie has been commercially successful apart from being critically acclaimed.

Dhanush and Thiruchitrambalam director Mithran R.Jawahar have some big hits of ‘remake’ movies under their belt. However, kudos goes to the director for penning such an engaging masterpiece and narrating it with refined deftness on the silver screen. The decent plot coupled with soulful music and sizzling performance by both lead actors and fringe characters makes the movie worth more than just a single watch.
