‘Tha’ is a love story about a violent
man whose heart undergoes an overall change after
falling in love. It is a nativity subject that has
been shot in the dry lands of Coimbatore and lush
greens of Kerala, with most of the shoots embracing
the beauty and the authenticity of a place called
Chavadi where the people due to the dearth of irrigation
and farming opportunities work in textile mills and
factories. The hero works in such a factory and the
storyline is about the incidents that follow when
a middle class girl falls in love with this guy, quite
rough and tough.
Director Surya Prabhakar insists that ‘Tha’
would be a different movie from the regular village-based
movies. He informs that this movie may be spoken about
after its release as he believes that it has an untold
story about human life and human feelings. Having
been an assistant to director Samudrakani earlier,
he feels that ‘Tha’ would break clichés
and would impact the audience.
The debutante music director Sri Vijay from Sri Lanka
is assured of a promising growth in the tinsel world.
The songs especially the melodies are doing a good
round. The lyricist happens to be the director himself.
It’s a general phenomenon that the songs are
heartwarming when the director himself wields the
pen for the songs too, as the feel stays on in every
number true to the director’s ideas sans any
camouflage. The album makes us feel that the movie
travels along the story. The audio of ‘Tha’
was launched at Sathyam Cinemas by Actor Karthi who
released the audio and Director Samuthirakani received
The star cast seems to perfectly fit the roles of
not-an-urban outlook type and hence gel well with
the story. It is a simple concept of love projected
in a village background without any unwanted additions
or aberrations to the flawless storyline. Come Friday,
we will know if the fresh ‘Tha’ team is
all set create a new trail.
