Arun Vijay is a late bloomer in Tamil cinema. He is a good example to prove that hard work never fails. He is back with his new thriller movie – Thadam. The movie is crisply paced and maintains the thrill, and you are left clueless until the end of the movie, which is a really good thing.
The movie wastes no time in revealing you that Arun Vijay has a double role, and you already know that you are in for a thrilling ride. The writer and director did some excellent research for the movie, and their efforts are clearly visible on the screen. From the point that the identical twins can have the same DNA to the basic legal structures and loopholes that people use to circumvent the law.
Until the very last scene, you are left clueless as of who the actual killer is and when the final revelation takes place, you only realize that it was in front of your eyes all the time and that the makers only showed you what you wanted to see. This is one of the best aspects of the movie – hiding in plain sight.
Overall, it is an engaging watch for all thriller lovers.
