In 2019, Tamil cinema saw a new wave of entertainment with director Harish Ram’s debut film, Thumbaa. It features Keerthi Pandian and Dheena along with Darshan, a debutante. The story of Thumbaa begins when three youngsters find out a local police officer’s evil plans of selling the tiger named Thumbaa, and its cub for money. Shot in the forests of Vagamon, Idukki, and Kumili, this movie is specifically designed to suit young audiences.
The director himself is an avid fan of children’s stories and loved Swat Katz. In an interview with a leading daily, the director said, “Writing a commercial script is something everyone does, but working on a children-centric storyline is a different challenge. It also helped me relive my childhood days.” It is said that Harish took cues from Hollywood cinema to find the perfect tone for Thumbaa.
Moreover, Harish makes the film an easy watch for the children and for their parents, by avoiding the incorporation of glamourous, obscene or romantic elements. What more could you ask for, right?
