Review : Thipparaa Meesam – Hardly worked emotional action drama
Brochevarevarura fame Sree Vishnu and Nikki Tamboli’s upcoming action thriller ‘Thipparaa Meesam’ which sees Sree Vishnu sporting a new look in an action-packed avatar for the first time released today amidst different expectations.
Let’s see how this turn out to be for audiences and the film itself.
Mani(Sree Vishnu) is a DJ professional who do not like his mother (Rohini). Whenever he gets into trouble, he demands money from her. At a point, things become so serious that he demands 40 lakhs from her. When she fails to pay him the amount, he files a case on her. Why is Mani hating his mother? Will he win his case? and how will he solve his problems? That forms the rest of the story.
The first half of the film is a complete bore with anti-sentiment running throughout. The concept of revenge on mother is atrocious and not relatable at all. Sree Vishnu is commendable with his performance but the film just doesn’t take off. No comedy, no romance, no thrilling elements as of now. If the same tempo continues, we will have another disaster on the cards.
The second half is better than the first half but nothing that would excite and make the audience jump in their seats.
Though sentiments between mother and son are the base for the film’s story, the way it is presented has become boring. The story started out as an intrusive, but the screenplay was not gripping.
Neither the aggressive attitude nor the mother sentiment on which the entire movie rests works. It leaves Thippara Meesam with an invariably dull and boring feeling, in the end.
Sri Vishnu has delivered a brilliant performance, which is the highlight of Thipparaa Meesam. Nikki Tamboli has done justice to her role and her chemistry with the hero is good. As the hero’s mother, Rohini has done a good job and her sentimental scenes with Sri are the attractions of the film. Naveern Neni, Ravi Prakash and Lahari have also done good jobs, say the audience.
Editing for over half an hour and mainly in the first half things needs to be trimmed out. The camerawork is pretty good. Dialogues are decent and so was the production design which showcases the night effect well. Production values are decent.
Coming to the director Vijay, he had a decent story as a son filing a case on mom and why all this happens is shown well in the end. But to go through this, he has made the film wayward, lengthy, and off track in many areas. If he would have directed the film with a straight tone, things would have been much better. Decent screenplay makes it watchable.
* Sree Vishnu’s performance
* Emotional expressions from veteran actress Rohini
* The length of the film
* Flat First Half
* Weird Twists
The second half of the film is marginally better than the first. The last half an hour might appeal to some audience who likes sentiment. Overall the film is a slog with more than 150 minutes of runtime. The film will not find many takers at the ticket windows and its fall at the box office is inevitable.
