Here’s why we think Yaadhumaagi Nindraai could be added to your lockdown watchlist.
Touted to be a romantic drama, Thorati is a tale of a care-free shepherd Mayan, who unknowingly befriends three thieves and lands in huge trouble post his marriage with Semponnu. It would be interesting to see how does Mayan plans to avenge these thieves after learning the truth about their past. Well, Thorati is much more than just a ‘love story’.
The music for the film has been composed by Ved Shanker Sugavanam and Jithin K Roshan while the lyrics were penned by Snehan. Potta Kaadellam, Kullanari, Usura Urukki, Love, Yelle Yelle to Saukaaram Pottu, Aal Illa and Marriage, all these songs managed to strike a chord with the audiences. The background music by Jithan also goes well with the story of the film.
The performances by the lead actors – Shaman Mithru and Sathyakala – were impressive. Looking at their acting skills, it does not seem like Thorati is Shaman and Sathyakala’s debut film. The film also features many newcomers, who also did a great job. From naive Mayan’s body language to mannerisms, Shaman seems to have polished his acting style. Also, he did not overdo the fight sequence in the climax; it looked natural.
The cinematography of the film by Kumar Sridhar gets a thumbs up. Set in the 1980s, Thorati was shot in Dindigul, Madurai, Pudukottai, Ramanathapuram and Sivagangai (Southern regions of Tamil Nadu). Kumar (director of photography) perfectly captures the village life in all its beauty.
Thorati’s script is excellent. The narration is impressive while the screenplay is slightly slow in certain places. But it does not make the audience bored, courtesy of the execution and the brilliant performances by the actors. The film is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. Thorati gives out a beautiful message, however, it does not come across as preachy. Thorati – Mayan and Semponnu’s love packed tale is an intriguing watch!
