Banner: Sun Pictures, Shri Movie Makers

Star-casts: Sundar C, Raghini, Namitha, Manoj K Vijayan and others
Music: Srikanth Deva
Just imagine if any of the western countries starts glimpsing across the Tamil Movie with A.R. Rahman winning Oscars. For sure watching flicks ‘Perumal’, ‘Thee’ and those of that sort would really get them doubtful whether is Tamil Film Industry divided into categories; Good, Bad and Ugly…
Sundar C was so fine and indeed won laurels for his characteristic performance in ‘Thalainagaram’ and what urged him to take on the roles of a commercial hero is the puzzling factor. If ‘Perumal’ was an annoying stuff that had hit the screens before couple of weeks, ‘Thee’ in no way differs from it as you don’t find even a single attribute to praise about the film.
Saami (Sundar C) does everything to become a politician and even goes to extent of claiming himself as a dog to his political leader (Shiyaji Shinde) or even cuts down the hands of those who disgrace his Thalaivar. When Actress Chitra Devi (Namitha) supports him, Saami becomes MLA of the area and there he starts up with his misdeeds of launching Cabaret, ordering his henchmen to insult young ladies and attack policemen. Amidst of it, he visits his pregnant wife Ganga (Raghini) who’s in her coma stage.
Later things are revealed Saami was formerly a sincere police officer whom Shiyaji Shinde thinks he’s already dead as he had ordered his yeoman to kill him and his family.
Rest of the film is all about how the protagonist settles the scores.
Sundar C as mentioned earlier doesn’t look appealing when he wants to stride across the paths of what mass heroes are actually getting along. Actress Raghini doesn’t has much scope while Namitha is all there to show her baby elephant thighs and other private parts.
Shiyaji Shinde is deteriorating his image playing nasty roles and just imagine his performance in debut ‘Bharathi’. Manoj K Vijayan does his best while ‘Thalaivasal’ Vijay deserves the same credits.
Musical score by Srikanth Deva is nastiest and better filmmakers don’t approach him anymore. There are better musicians in town if not A.R. Rahman, Harris, Yuvan or his dad Ilayaraja.
Cinematography and editing are so mediocre that doesn’t captivate our senses. Kiccha hasn’t done anything special and it’s a copycat of what Actors Arjun, Sarath Kumara and Vijayakanth had done earlier in many of their films.
On the whole, ‘Thee’ is one such trademark for Sun Pictures that’s so determined in releasing such kind of films.
Precisely, this review wouldn’t be helping as it would anyhow manage to cross 100 days in theatres.
