Theri 2016 movies review


Theri (transl. Spark) is a 2016 Indian Tamil-language action thriller film written and directed by Atlee and produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu under the banner V Creations. The film stars Vijay and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The film’s music is composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar, with cinematography handled by George C. Williams and editing done by Ruben. The story revolves around a former police officer who is on a mission to protect his daughter from gangsters and also to live up the promise to his wife to raise her daughter as non-violent person.

The film marked Atlee’s second directorial after Raja Rani (2013), whose success impressed Vijay to work with the director. Atlee came up with the script, which was an “emotional action thriller film” and a formal announcement was made during September 2014. After post-production works and a formal launch ceremony in June 2015, the film began production in Chennai during early July. The film was halted twice due to the Film Employees Federation of South India’s strike and the heavy flooding in Chennai. In addition, poor climatic conditions in China meant that the team had to abandon their idea of filming sequences there and instead opted to shoot in Bangkok. Despite the difficulties, the film was completed within January 2016.

The film had a worldwide release on 14 April 2016. The film received generally mixed to positive reviews from critics and audience who praised the cast’s performances, action sequences and direction but critisiced the clichéd story. Grossing 150 crore (US$20 million) against a budget of 75 crore (US$10 million), it emerged as a commercial success and became the highest grossing Tamil and South Indian film of 2016. It further won three SIIMA Awards,[8] three IIFA Utsavam awards, two Ananda Vikatan Cinema Awards and nine nominations at the 64th Filmfare Awards South. The film was adapted into Assamese as Ratnakar (2019).[9] It is currently considered as one among the most-popular films in Vijay’s career, due to the commercial elements in the film and its multiple re-runs in television channels had attributed to more popularity.
