Tamizh Padam was the mother of spoofs in Tamil cinema, that was widely enjoyed by the audience. After a gap of eight years, the next installment of this franchise has finally released, amidst high expectations. Read ahead to know if the film has lived up to those expectations!
Shiva joins the Police Department after a hiatus, to avenge the death of his wife. He plans to kill Mr.P (Sathish), who is an International terrorist. Does Shiva catch hold of Mr P and win the game of vengeance? Watch the film to know.
Right from the first scene to the end credits, the film has everything that the audience would expect. Due credits to the whole team for recreating some of the most important scenes in Tamil Cinema’s recent history. C.S.Amudhan doesn’t stick just to movie spoofs, but he also takes references from politics, pop culture, famous TV shows. Combining the emotions and famed moments of many films and personalities in the same scene was noteworthy. Amudhan and his team have put to use, all these combinations to bring out a full-fledged entertainer.
The political references of Sasikala, OPS, H.Raja, and the Koovathur resort episode connects big time among the audience. The film would mostly fulfill the expectations of a common man, who would just want to laugh out loud. The logical loopholes do not seem to be a complaint, as the main focus and intention of the film is to be farcical and funny. The dialogues written by K.Chandru deserve a special mention.
Tamizh Padam 2 has spoofs of many notable films and the audience will definitely enjoy the spoofs of Vedalam, Vivegam, Vikram Vedha, 24, Mersal, Thuppakki, Kabali, Aambala, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyadu, and many other films. The best thing about Tamizh Padam 2 are the casual references that come and go in many unexpected situations. Not just films, there are also some hilarious spoofs of Gautham Vasudev Menon’s voice over narrations and Mysskin’s style of filmmaking.
On the downside, the historical portion in the second half seemed a little draggy, though there are a few comical moments. A section of audience might feel that the item song ‘Vaa Kaama’ could have been avoided.
Mirchi Shiva is a delightful actor on screen and whatever he does seems funny. He has carried the film on his shoulders and he brings to the table, a super cool energy. Sathish definitely has taken extra effort in essaying the role of Mr.P, as he appears in various get-ups in each scene. Shiva and Sathish share great chemistry, which is even better than the chemistry between the male and female lead. Ishwarya Menon does a neat job and her ‘VTV’ and ‘Vivegam’ spoofs are impressive.
On the technical front, Gopi Amarnath’s lighting & visuals, and Kannan’s background score have a major credit in recreating the mood of the spoofed films. T.S.Suresh’s editing comes in handy for the film and he has made the film flow in the right sequential pattern, along with the director’s idea and vision.
