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.


Verdict: Tamizh Padam 3, “I am Waiting”!.

Naan Yaarumilla
Vocals: Mark, Kumaresan
Lyrics: CS Amudhan and Chandru


However you expect Agila Ulaga Superstar Shiva's introductory song to be, Naan Yaarumilla is all of it. Though Amudhan and Chandru's lyrics is the core of the track, the compelling use of the lead guitar is definitely reasonable. From top to bottom, the lyrics are a total spoof of more than just the Tamil film industry. One of the songs that can gather not just claps but also the laughs!

Vaa Vaa Kaama
Vocals: Ujjayinee Roy
Lyrics: Thiyaru  


Vaa Vaa Kaama rendered by Ujjayinee Roy is quite an innovative track from the film because it is projected to be the 'item song' of the album, but interestingly, they've taken to Jazz and blues. When we imagine that the song will either be energetic or seductive, or a mix of both, Kannan has come out with a subtly seductive jazz track with neat arrangements. A foot-tapping rhythm and engaging use of the lead guitars is appreciable.

Vocals: Pradeep Kumar and Chinmayee
Lyrics: Madhan Karky


Kalavarame, right from the beginning will tell you how the composer and lyricist have played and worked around the track. The interesting aspect of the song is how quirky they have been to fit the word Kalavarame into the composition's meter, and still not make it sound weird. Well of course, it helps when you imagine Shiva in the visuals. Pradeep and Chinmayee have proved their mettle before, and they ace this song as well. Kannan's expertise in bringing in a classical angle into the song, while maintaining the base of the melody is admirable. The orchestration of the strings adds value to the track, while the gibberish makes you think if it is actually gibberish or has Madhan Karky somehow managed to fit in a couple of words in there.

En Nadanam
Vocals: Sharreth and Vijay Prakash
Lyrics: Thiyaru


En Nadanam's first 45 seconds tell you the tone of the track. It sounds like an extremely intriguing and intense song. The usage of the Tabla, Mridangam and the classical string instruments yet again shows Kannan's strong base in Carnatic music. The experienced duo of Sharreth and Vijay Prakash are a gift to this track, as their voices sound robust and bring out the soul in the song. All this, just to be turned over by Shiva's dancing prowess. The final 30 seconds of the track might give you goosebumps, as Vijay Prakash and Sharreth's konnakkol piece is completely worth the listen.

Evada Unna Petha
Vocals: Ranina Reddy
Lyrics: CS Amudhan and Chandru


As announced right in the beginning of the song, Amudhan dedicates this song to the soup girls. A typical kuththu song with quirky lyrics speaking about the girl's side in a relationship, while also spoofing a couple of male soup songs. This song was initially released as a single, and it is expected to sound better with the situation in the film.

Chella Penney
Vocals: Jithin and Sowmya
Lyrics: CS Amudhan and Chandru


Chella Penney is a quintessential romantic melody from N Kannan. The song evolves out of a loop from a slap strum technique used on an acoustic guitar. Jithin and Sowmya's functional rendition is neat, while Amudhan and Chandru bring out the romantics in them through the lyrics. The whole track travels on the same level and we don't find many high points to relish.

Ulagam Athira Vaada
Vocals: Manasi Mahadevan
Lyrics: Thiyaru


Ulagam Athira Vaada seems like a song built up for the rise of Shiva's massy attitude. The song begins with enormous power, and the beats give you a separate high (apart from the fact that you're imagining Agila Ulaga Superstar Shiva's majestic walk) and it rides on the same high and reaches its peak. But the song ends at the high point, which could turn out to be a let down for the listeners who would be gripped until then.

Pheonix Paravai
Vocals: Srinisha
Lyrics: Chandru


Pheonix Paravai is yet another short track that seems like it is right out of an Amman movie. A purely classical composition, complemented by Srinisha's sturdy rendition is quite an interesting track after all. Yet again, the rage is expected to be seen on screen with Shiva's screen presence. Though, the instrumentation in this track is praise-worthy.

Vocals: K Thilaka
Lyrics: Thiyaru

On the lines of Baahubali's downfall, this track is filled with sorrow, both in terms of music and the lyrics. Enter Shiva, and your mind is boggled. Thilaka's voice certainly helps the mood of the song, but how much of it is true despair?

Verdict: Tamizh Padam 2's album is an enjoyable commercio-carnatic spoof!
