Thodari Review/Rail review :
Written and directed by Prabhu Solmon himself, Thodari is being dubbed in Telugu language as Dhanush has fans all over South India, especially in tollywood. Telugu audience are also waiting for Thodari review. Thodari is being dubbed into Telugu as ‘Rail‘ as the whole movie happens on a Train. The final cuts for the film has been done by L.V.K. Doss and the music is composed by D. Imman who previously composed some wonderful songs. Thodari is being presented under Sathya Jothi Films Banner which is new to the movie industry.
‘Thodari/Rail’ is Prabhu Solomon’s dream project as he had written the story, directed and co-produced the movie himself.
IMDb: A cafeteria worker, a lovely young girl, and a gang of hijackers converge aboard a train.
Dhanush is a rural village man who works in a cafeteria and gets transferred to Train food service department on Duronto express which travels from Delhi to Chennai. Keerthy Suresh is a local village girl, who for an unknown reason boards the train without any ticket when the train is stopped. Being ticketless, she travels on the edges of the train. News arrives that there are hijackers on the train and the main focus misleads onto Keerthy Suresh, who isn’t aware of this. Keerthy Suresh and Dhanush fall in love with each other and many policemen enter the train to arrest the hijackers. Ganesh Venkatraman is the police officer and plans a police investigation on train. Harish Uthaman is the shady villain in the movie who gets into fights with Dhanush until he gets to know the truth.
Who and Why are the Hijackers on the train ? Is Keerthy Suresh one of the hijackers ? Is Dhanush shady ? These things form the rest of the story.

Thodari Rating – 3/5 | Rail Rating – 3/5
Final verdict :
Thodari is presented as a romantic thriller, but the film diverts into weak comedy scenes and when it jumps back into story, it doesn’t give audience, the much needed impact. The scenes between Dhanush and Keerthy Suresh are cute and eye candy and as the film gets serious we don’t get to see much of it. The police in the film are not so intelligent and Dhanush has to do everything. So far, Thodari/Rail is a nice story that went average because of weak direction and much weaker VFX.
Should you Watch it ?
Maybe yes, May be Not. Watch it for the cute chemistry between Dhanush and Keerthy Suresh
Hit or Flop ?
An average hit that will depend on other movies releasing that week.
