May 11, 2018


Debutant filmmaker Mithran has surprise all with a gripping narration in Irumbu Thirai that speaks about data theft and shows how our important details are being accessed and misused using technology.

With Vishal at the helm of affairs, enacted and produced by him, the movie seems to be based on real-life incidents that we read in newspaper headlines.

Irumbu Thirai Review


Samantha plays heroine, Robo Shankar takes care of comedy and veteran Delhi ganesh playing a crucial role. Interestingly playing the antagonist is Action King Arjun. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja and camera by George C Williams.

The plot revolves around Major Kathiravan (Vishal), an army officer, who is cheated by an online banking fraud. When he tries to trace his money and find the perpetrators, he discovers that the web of crime with the aid of technology is beyond a common man's scope. The highlight is the strong interval block, which introduces the main antagonist, essayed by 'action king' Arjun.

Samantha plays Dr Rathi Devi, a psychologist in the film and her character is more mature and a departure from the usual bubbly roles that she plays. Delhi Ganesh plays Vishal's dad.


Irumbu Thirai Tamil Review


The encounter between Vishal and Arjun makes up the rest of the movie. Vishal is tailor-made of the role. He is good in stunt sequences too. Three cheers to him for pouring right emotions.

Arjun is a surprise element in the movie. A man with brains, he plays the villain who hogs enough screen space. He is the right pick for such a tricky role.

Yuvan Shankar Raja's BGM makes it a racy affair while George C Williams captures scenes well. Irumbu Thirai has a strong storyline. Mithran has done a wonderful job and narrated the story in a pace manner.


There are humour at many places and a wonderful on-screen chemistry between Samantha and Vishal. He has made it an engaging entertainer bringing audience to the edge of their seats.

Irumbuthirai is an engaging movie that serves a purpose.

Verdict : Irumbu Thirai - A taut thriller

Rating: 3.5/5
