Inspector Chellappa is poised to expose the city’s drug cartel and is waiting for the right opportunity. Meanwhile, a businessman gets involved in the drug trade and later turns out to be a suspect in a murder investigation. At the same time, the Dandupalyam D-gang makes a brutal comeback. Who was the murderer? Did the gang exact their retribution? It is necessary to observe on the screen how everyone ends up in the same location.
Review: Thaggede Le doesn’t seem to hold anything back, recalling a famous line from Pushpa: The Rise. With the exception of the conclusion, the majority of the movie takes place over the course of one day as the characters recount what happened. Dandupalyam 3 left off where Thaggede Le picks up, adding modern living and drugs to the mix. When a doctor counsels his friend to travel to paradise—which the three of them do—Naveen Chandra’s character encounters paradise. When Naveen first meets Julia, aka Lizy, the movie’s first half is exciting and steamy. Everyone receives a blue colour mixture that induces a trance-like state in them.
Once more, Naveen Chandra puts on a strong performance. The work of Divya Pillai and Ananya Raj was excellent. The most important part of the film was played by Ravi Shankar as Chellappa. The other cast members are Makrandh Deshpande, Ravi Kale, Naga Babu, Ayyappa Sharma, Pooja Gandhi, Raja Raveendar, and Naina Ganguly. The movie was helmed by Srinivas Raju, with music by Charan Arjun, editing by Garry BH, and DoP by Venkat Prasad.
Sadly, despite the actors’ best efforts, the screenplay could have been stronger and more interesting. The film Thaggede Le, which also stars Naveen Chandra, Divya Pillai, Ananya Raj, Naina Ganguly, and Ravi Shankar and was directed by Srinivas Raju of Dandupalyam fame, is a mixed bag. The movie manages to entertain and thrill viewers in some instances despite being loaded with graphic violence, foul language, and daring romance. It is not, however, for the weak of heart.
