Thulli Yezhunthathu Kaadhal is about how we perceive others depending only on their negatives while leaving behind all their positive aspects. This wrong perception gives us a strong notion about the person throughout. Thulli Yezhunthathu Kaadhal is the Tamil version of the Telugu flick Thagida… Thagida…

However, she falls in love with her college mate and when she goes to disclose her love; she realizes that it is not the right age after hearing news that a pair had committed suicide owing to their wrong decision.

Thulli Yezhunthathu Kaadhal is a film that has a number of stories running parallel during the college years. When their academic life is nearing to an end, the students realize their friendship, ego, and love… What happens after this is told by infusing some commercial formula.
Parents, friends and lovers do not apply mind to think why certain things are happening and instead decide irrationally. Due this, they lose out on so many important situations in life. The director should be lauded for taking up such a wonderful concept but he has faltered and confused in many scenes. There are too many characters and Anushka has been included in the star cast just for the sake of promos. Certain scenes like the ones which have Anushka are forcibly included. None of the songs are appealing. Though there are way too many slipups, the actors make it up with their acting skills. In total, it is an average fare!
