Thondan” is a message oriented entertainer with “ Samuthirakani” in the lead role. “ Vikranth,” “ Sunaina,” “ Soori,” “ Soundararaja,” Namo Narayana, Thambi Ramaiah and Ganja Karuppu are also in the cast. Samuthirakani directs the film. R Manikandan produces the movie under the banner Vasundhara Devi Cine Films. Justin Prabhakaran composes the music and Richard M Nathan handles the camera. AL Ramesh is the editor of the social action movie, Thondan.


Samuthirakani is an ambulance driver. He feels that violence will not help anyone at any situation. He wants everyone to be kind and he follows it too. Vikranth is a playboy in his village. Once, he makes fun on Samuthirakani’s sister. When Samuthirakani comes to know about Vikranth, he didn’t take violence in his hand but calls Vikranth and advises him, decently. In a stage, he helps Vikranth get a job. Although Samuthirakani isolates from the violence, troubles follow him. A Minister and his family are the biggest troublemakers to Samuthirakani. How did Samuthirakani solve all the issues? Did he follow non-violence or breaks it to get the issues solved? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

As usual Samuthirakani has lived in the character. Vikranth’s emotions are fantastic. Soori and Thambi Ramaiah had done their parts well.


Samuthirakani has come with a good social message. Like his useful film, “ Appa,” this film will be lauded by the society. However, Samuthirakani should have avoided some scenes that leave some artificialness.

What’s There?

  • Samuthirakani has taken a lot of efforts to show the hardships faced by the society
  • Dialogues are sharp and it has brought a lot of emotions
  • Climax is perfectly designed by Samuthirakani
  • Comedy sequences with Soori and Thambi Ramaiah impress the audiences

What’s Not There?

  • Although Vikranth’s performance is nice, Samuthirakani should have used his talent well
  • Many scenes seem to be artificial; especially the IT raid at Minister’s house


Samuthirakani stands at the top of the film as Thondan. He comes throughout the film and with his sharp dialogues he gets appreciation from the audiences. Although a dialogue that relates to Jallikattu is not relevant to the situation, it is excellent. Thondan comes with a neat message to the society and it could be watched once!
