Jagame Thandhiram Review: Dhanush & Karthik’s Gangster Drama Is A Mass Entertainer

Jagame Thandhiram Review: I was waiting for the film since the announcement and I started watching a film at 12:30 Pm sharp, I just finished the film and here I am with the review of Dhanush starer Jagame Thandhiram, I am going to talk about the Plot, performances and few more details of the film.

The movie stars Dhanush (As Suruli), Aishwarya Lakshmi (As Attila), James Cosmo (As Peter), and Joju George (As Shivodass) in the main lead role, the movie also stars Kailaiyarsan (as Deepan), Soundra Raja, Sharat Ravi and others in supporting roles. The film is directed and written by Karthik Subbaraj. The film is approx 2 Hours and 30 Minutes long and now available on Netflix in 17 Languages. I watched the Hindi version and the Hindi version of the film is family-friendly. It means you can watch the film with your family.


The plot of the film revolves around Gangsters of London. Peter A Local gangster of London takes help from a Tamilian Notorious Gangster Suruli to fight against his rival Shivadoss. Suruli comes from India to help Peter and His Gang. Here Suruli falls in love with Atilla, Who is A Singer in the Pub. Suruli starts working with Peter and with his brilliant mind and fighting skills he shocked the Shivodass, Shivodass also starts a counterattack, and then something happens which will shock you. What happened in the end? Who wins at last? Petr or Shivodass, what happened to the love story of Suruli? to know this you have to watch the full film on Netflix.


Coming to the performances, Dhanush is back again with the same Swag, his entry was just wow, Karthik never fails to disappoint us, each time he comes with an amazing and something cool concept, and audiences go crazy over it. Like his previous films, Dhanush is just killing it this film too with his swag. The way he speaks, the way he fights, and the way he walks, everything creates magic in the film. Joju George was the second biggest highlight of the film, he looks amazing, his expressions, his body language, and his dialogue delivery match the level of Gangster, he is absolutely perfect in the role and it looks like the role was meant for him only.

James Cosmo was equally good in the role of Peter, he looks perfect in the role of UK Gangster, his looks, the way he talks and his personality is just amazing. Aishwarya Lakshmi was decent in her role, she gets very less screentime still she manages to get her mark in the film, she looks pretty, calm and cute. Another cast from the film like Kailaiyarsan, Saundra Raja, and Sharat Ravi was good in the roles, everyone is just amazing with their dialogue delivery, expressions, and body language.


The film is another Mass Entertainer by Dhanush, honestly speaking the film was meant for the cinema halls, there are many seetimaar scenes, the entry of Dhanush is amazing, the fig sequence in the begging at the Restaurant was just brilliant. The BGM is always a special part of south Indian films and this film is not different, the BGM of the film is just amazing and Especially the Rakita song. I can imagine the vibe if the song starts playing in cinema halls. Karthik is again brilliant with his direction and storytelling, the film has everything, ACtion, Comedy, Lessons and most importantly film has an emotional message and story that can attract the masses.

The screenplay of the film is amazing and the film never bores you, The editing is brilliant and the locations are just at the next level, the film looks exotic, authentic, and a huge budget film. From the romantic scene to songs and from fighting scenes to comedy, everything is filmed so brilliantly that you can’t get you aye off from the film.


Now coming to some negatives of the film, the film is just another South Indian film where hero Kills bulky Villains with one hand, most part of the film is about gangsters fights and clashes which we had already seen in the previous films. The story os the film lacks that thrilling element, the story looks open, the film seems a little long in the middle, especially after 80 minutes and Yes if you are looking for some Romantic Love angle, then this film may disappoint you.
