Actor Bharath, who impressed everyone with films like 'Kadhal' and 'Veyil', is keen on doing commercial entertainers of late. His recent films has been portraying him as a mass hero who romances, flexes his muscles and tries his hand at comedy. Adding one more in the list is 'Thambikku Indha Ooru'.
Directed by Badri, the movie expresses Bharath's desire to take the mass route. Giving him company is Sana Khan, who made a splashing debut with 'Silambattam'. A commercial pot-boiler, the movie unfolds at quick pace sans logic. Badri, a former associate of director Sundar C, has rendered a movie that would satisfy the appetite of front-benchers.
Akil (Bharath) is a rich youth who runs a restaurant along with his buddy Cola Kumar (Vivek) in Singapore. As it happens, his dad (Nizhalgal Ravi) gets the shock of his life when Akil refuses to marry Priya (Madalasa).
Akil goes against his father's wish as he is desperate behind Divya (Sana Khan). Divya is a squash champion (seemingly inspired by ace tennis star Sania Mirza). Annoyed at Akil's denial, Priya's father spells out the truth that Akil was a orphan.
Shocked at the developments, Akil decides to embark on a journey and find out his biological parents, whom he comes to know stay in Chengalpet.
On his trip to homeland, he starts to encounter problems in the form of Divya's dad who is against their affair. He feels that her daughter as a popular sports woman could earn more through endorsing various brands. Enters Kumaraswamy (Prabhu), who plays a crucial part in the whole story. But all is well and ends well.
Bharath looks stylish in different costumes and as cool, suave, rich man he is a treat to watch. He is good at fights too. But at many places he seems to mime popular actors. Sana Khan oozes glamour. She dances well too. Prabhu more like a cameo impresses. The veteran fits the bill well. Unfortunately Vivek's humour fails. His double entendre makes one squirm in seats. He seems to have become more repetitive. Dharan has composed five songs with Bharath crooning one.
Badri seems to have opted for a cliched storyline, which works wonders only in parts. The second half is very predictable. On the whole, 'Thambikku Indha Ooru' passes the muster thanks only to the lead pair and the stylish making in the first half.
