" Thambi " Movie Review .

A sister, who has been leading a humdrum life for more than a decade after her younger brother runs away from home . Jeethu Joseph is someone who has made both engaging thrillers and family entertainers. 

A sister who leads an unpleasant life missing her brother who ran away from home years ago .Even after 15 years, Parvathy (Jyotika) hopes her aggressive younger brother Saravanan would return home. Her politician father Gnanamoorthy (Sathyaraj), mother (Seetha) and grand mother (Sowcar Janaki), too, believe that the miracle may happen one day. But fate had other plans. Moorthy identifies Vicky (Karthi), a trickster and a tourist guide in Goa, to be his son lost son and brings him home. Parvathy and others in the house slowly start accepting him without knowing his real identity. Saravanan's lover Sanjana (Nikhila Vimal), too, gets elated after hearing about the former's return. 

Karthi impresses in yet another role by aptly filling the shoes of a role which has an appealing character arc. After Karthi, it is Sathyaraj who steals the show, thanks to his varying performances. Jyotika pulls off the elder sister's role effortlessly while Sowcar Janaki engages with her expressions. Ilavarasu, Anson Paul, Harish Peradi and Bala play their part well. 

Nikhila Vimal's character, however, is underwritten and it is evident after a point. The cinematography by RD Rajasekar and music by Govind Vasantha are apt for the film's mood.

But the slow screenplay should have had more moments to make it a proper edge-of-the-seat film. 

Rating : 3 / 5 .
