Thoranai Movie Preview
Behindwoods review board
Starring: Vishal, Shriya, Prakash Raj, Santhanam
Direction: Saba Ayyappan
Music: Mani Sharma
Production: GK Films
Kollywood’s summer kicks off this Friday. It is delayed heavily, thanks to the IPL. And, first off the block is the Vishal-Shriya starrer Thoranai. What do you expect from a Vishal movie? Loads of entertainment and action; this is the mix that has sustained Vishal in his few years at Kollywood. This time too he will remain faithful to it, but there is going to be a lot more emphasis on comedy. Yes, there was some comedy in Malaikottai, but precious little of that was done by Vishal. In Thoranai, we will see Vishal himself trying his hand at the lighter stuff in a lot of
scenes. Of course, he will be in the company of some experienced comedians which includes Santhanam and M.S. Bhaskar.

Thoranai is the story of a man (Vishal) who comes to the city from his village to find out his long-lost elder brother and reunite him with the family. But he is not able to do it easily and keeps running into trouble and there are certain people who disturb him often. How he gets over all the challenges to reach his goal is what Thoranai is all about. In this, we have Shriya who comes as Vishal’s lady love. The stills and promos have promised a lot of glamour; but there will be no vulgarity, promise the crew of the movie. Prakash Raj plays an important role in Thoranai. But you can gauge that comedy is the highlight of Thoranai from the fact that in spite of the presence of artistes like Prakash Raj and Shriya, the highlights of the film are said to be the scenes involving Santhanam and Vishal. There is a particular scene where Vishal appears as Lord Rama and Santhanam as Hanuman, which is sure to bring the house down.

The director of Thoranai, Saba Ayyappan makes his debut with the movie. It is easy to see why he chose comedy to make his debut with; he has been an assistant of Viji (Vellithirai) and Bhoopathy Pandian (Thiruvilayaadal, Malaikottai). Music by Mani Sharma has received its share of attention, but has not yet managed to create any serious waves.

Thoranai is a crucial film for Vishal as he looks to come back after the Sathyam debacle. It is also important for Kollywood as it marks the beginning of the delayed summer. A lot of films are set to release in the coming weeks and everyone would love to see Thoranai get the season off to a good start.
