Thaana Serndha Koottam Movie Review ! Thaana Serndha Koottam, starring Suriya in the lead role is all set to take over the theatres from today (January 12, 2018) onwards. The much awaited film, has been directed by Vignesh Sivan and the audiences expect nothing less than a crackling entertainer from the big team.

The story of Thaana Serndha Koottam is set in the 1980s and is loosely based on the Hindi movie Special 26. The film takes us through the life of a youngster whose big dream is to become a CBI officer. But, fate goes against him and he with some of his friends, form a gang that does fake raid.

Suriya As Inayan

Well, we have been waiting to see Suriya in such a role, which has well-utilised the charm, simplicity and the subtle acting skills of the much loved actor. He is at ease while performing the central character and right from the first frame, his energy is unmatchable. In fact, he has delivered exactly what was required for the character, be it in the romantic, sentimental or comical portions.

Keerthi Suresh plays the role of the leading lady, who hails from a Brahmin family. The screen time for her character was comparatively lesser but still, her role holds due importance in the story.

Ramya Krrishna gets to play a well-written role of the prominent member of the gang. As usual, the actress has put up an impressive show, especially in light comedy sequences. She is full of energy and she simply steals the show in some of the sequences.


Thaana Serndha Koottam is a commercial movie with a valid and definite storyline. The film, despite being a remake, stands on its own and all thanks to the well-layered screenplay of Vignesh Sivan. The film doesn’t get into the track of usual masala movies and follows a more believable and logical track. Corruption is one such issue that has been prevailing in the system since decades. Hence, the film’s take on the same is still crucial and relevant. Moreover, Thaana Serndha Koottam has in it a revenge tale, which sets the tone of the film in a perfect manner.

At the same time, being a heist movie, it has to be said that, Thaana Serndha Koottam lacks that thrilling element in the climax sequences. Nevertheless, the film is definitely high on other entertainment quotients. There might be some thoughts prevailing in the minds of people who have watched Special 26, as to whether Thaana Serndha Koottam will satisfy them or not. There are some big differences in the progression of the story of this Tamil movie and the room for comparisons isn’t much.
