Ezhil is doing construction business and he is in love with Deepika. They are getting ready for their marriage. Kavin and Suruli involve in stealing and lead their life happily. Kavin is a selfish guy and that’s why he doesn’t understand Ananthi’s love for him. Meanwhile, a murder takes place in the city. Upon the photo evidence, the police catch Ezhil. At a certain point, they get Kavin into the case. The senior cop Gopalakrishnan wanted his junior Malarvizhi to deal with the case. Malar is confused and she is clueless about the murderer, although she researched a lot. Did she get any clue and solve the case? Who is the killer? Watch the film to get the answer to this question.

Star Performance

Arun Vijay has performed well. But there should have been some more changes added for both the roles. Tanya Hope has done her role perfect in the given time. Vidya Pradeep’s role is excellent and she had lived in the cop role.


Magizh Thirumeni is one among the few directors, who could do their best in the crime thriller genre. His Thadaiyara Thaaka and Megaman are the best examples for his excellence in the genre. Although the first half seems to be slightly lagging, the second half is fantastic with the excellent screenplay. The script is good and the director has worked hard to make it impressive with his execution. Yet, the film is slow in certain places. Magizh had untied the knots one by one, interestingly. The romantic portions are excellent and the director proves once again that he is the disciple to Gautham Menon Gautham Vasudev Menon is known for his directional >> Read More... Gautham Menon . Characterization is superb and detailing is perfect too.

What’s There?

  • Script, screenplay and execution are good
  • Suspense factors are neatly handled
  • Performances of the stars are good; thanks to the casting team

What’s Not There?

  • At some places it makes us feel that as if we are watching some old movie
  • Some scenes are bit lengthy and editor should have worked out extra


Although Thadam tests your patience at some places, you will definitely feel good while coming out of the theaters.
