Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is the film scripted and directed by Naanum Rowdy Dhaan fame, Vignesh Shivan. The film is based on Special 26, a Bollywood film. Suriya Sivakumar, Keerthy Suresh, Ramya Krishnan, Karthik Muthuraman, Suresh Chandra Menon, “ Senthil,” Thambi Ramaiah, “Anandaraj,” “ Sathyan,” Kalaiyarasan Harikrishnan, RJ Balaji and Nandha Durairaj are in the star cast. Studio Green produced the film and Anirudh Ravichander composed the songs and the background score. Sodaku song that released is already a super hit on the music track. Dinesh Krishnan cranked the camera and Sreekar Prasad edited the film.


Suriya and Kalaiyarasan are friends, who are fighting hard to get a government job. Suriya longs to get a job in the CBI and his friend Kalaiayarasan dreams to become a police officer. Although both have the capacity to get their dream jobs, due to the corrupted officers, they are denied the opportunities. Following this, Kalai commits suicide. Affected by Kalai’s suicide, Suriya forms a gang and make the corrupted officers run for their life. How did he form the gang and who are all in the gang? Who are those corrupted officers? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

As usual, Suriya has given out a classy performance. We could see the Suriya, whom we missed after the Mounam Pesiyadhe times. Ramya Krishnan impresses. After a long, we could see Senthil in this film. Keerthy Suresh didn’t have a significant part but has a decent role and she had utilized it well. Kalaiyarasan’s performance is noteworthy.


Although it is a remake film, Vignesh Shivan’s screenplay is racy and impresses the audiences. The story is a perfect fit for Suriya. First of all, we should appreciate Vignesh for his casting. Ramya is an apt choice and Karthik too. The story is set in the backdrop of 80s and the director has to be appreciated for the old film posters in the set. However, the climax doesn’t impress the audiences. Vignesh should have designed the climax, a bit stronger; even after the film ends, the viewers couldn’t believe that it is over.

What’s There?

  • Suriya, Ramya, Kalai and Senthil’s performance
  • Suriya – Keerthy chemistry
  • Stunning BGM and songs by Anirudh
  • Cinematography is one among the biggest pluses
  • Art director needs a special mention

What’s Not There?

  • Second half is not much impressive, especially the climax


Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is a complete treat for the fans of Suriya. However, the film could be watched by the general audiences too. Thaanaa Serndha Koottam would definitely attract the family audiences to the theaters with its new content!
