Review of the film “Thiruvin Kural,” which centres on patients at a hospital but isn’t sufficiently serious. With predictable action fare, Arulnithi’s latest Tamil film doesn’t tap its sole interesting idea to the fullest
Thiruvin Kural (Tamil)
Director: Harish Prabhu
Cast: Arulnithi, Bharathiraja, Aathmika
Runtime: 119 minutes
Storyline: A speech-and-hearing impaired youngster’s life changes after his father has an accident
In Indian film, the “angry young man” figure epitomises a time period. Amitabh Bachchan has been linked to this label for a long time because of his standout performances in 1970s Hindi films.
More recently, closer to home, Arulnithi appears to have fallen in love with this quality. He portrays Thiru in his most recent Tamil film, Thiruvin Kural, who is an angry young guy from the get-go. When he notices a female feeling uneasy in a city bus, he beats up the thugs who are upsetting her.
Even a few sequences later, as he is on a hospital lift, this occurs. And long later, when travelling. Thiru has a tendency to become enraged at the little thing.
This hero may be mistaken for any other Tamil movie hero, but Thiru has a speech and hearing impairment.
When his father needs to be sent to the hospital after an accident, Thiru’s life is drastically changed. What occurs after that?
Especially when he wants to depict the villains, director Harish Prabhu seems to rely heavily on visual clues to express all he wants to say. The camera focuses in on dangerous eyes and unkempt hair two seconds before you see one of them—a lift operator in a hospital. For no apparent reason, the folks boarding the lift appear afraid and uneasy.
Thiru is going to talk. even if he is unable. You will hear “thiruvin kural,” to put it briefly.
Thiruvin Kural features a few good casting choices—Ashraf as Aarumugam does a good job of playing the threatening role—and emphasises the idea of how staff members in a hospital may affect events, but it doesn’t have much else going for it. Bharathiraaja, who was well-received in Dhanush’s movie Thiruchitrambalam from the previous year, had nothing to do in this one. To make matters worse, his bond with Thiru, the object of the movie’s ‘father emotion,’ is scarcely established. Sam CS’s background music often reminds us of his past work, but his melodies seem quiet. Thiruvin Kural needs a great deal of refinement to make its fascinating core.
