Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru

Medium : Tamil
Starring : Ajmal, Mouli, Rupa Manjari
Director : Nandini
Music : Mani Sharma

Though direction area of the Indian film industry is a male dominating area, we have got few numbers of women directors also in the field to be quoted. Mira Nair, who has been holding the megaphon
e for the last 30years, had directed many hindi & foreign films, Deepa Mehtha had given many notable subjects and some of them notable through contreversies. Choreographer Farha Khan had directed a couple of commercial films, Zoya Akthar, who comes from Javed Akthar's family is also a director in bollywood, Actress turned director Revathi had given two-three films, V.Priya, former assistant to Maniratnam, had directed a couple of tamil films, Yesteryear actress Sheela was also the director of few films, Anjali Menon, one of the directors of 'Kerala Cafe' had also done a couple of short films, Liji J.Pullappally, Geethu Mohandas, Sreebala K Menon, Sangeetha Padmanabhan, Asha Joseph etc are some of the other women directors that had created some short films and feature films.

Now to join the group another young lady, Nandini had come up with her new project named 'Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru' (TTTT). She had worked as an assistant to V.Priya in films like 'Kanda Naal Muthal' and 'Kannaampoochi Enada'. Ajmal, the young actor who came to the field through the malayalam film 'Pranaykaalam' is the hero in 'TTTT'. He had done a couple of tamil films like 'Anjaathey' and 'TN 09 AL 4777' before. New face Rupa Manjari is the heroine. The film is produced by Sathyam Cinemas and Real Images.

Arjun (Ajmal) is working in an advertisement firm. The owner (Mouli) and his wife treates him as their personal favorite. Archana (Rupa Manjari) is also working in the same company. Arjun and Archana are shown as contrasting characters. The former believes in the lazy and don't care policy, on the other hand she wants to do everything in a perfect way. Even if there were disagreement in attitudes, they worked together for a new promotional campaign, acquired by their firm recently. For that, Arjun found a baby to do the Ad shoot; but the problem starts when the client demanded an NOC certificate from the baby's parents. It was not possible as the baby is a kidnapped one. The shoot is now a prestige issue for the owner and it will happen only when they get signature from the parents. The search for the parents and how such a situation is handled is shown in the later portions of 'TTTT'.

The performance of Mouli, who comes as the owner of the Ad firm, is excellent. His messy behavior had got a natural look and the desperate attempt in recollecting names, creates a comedy environment. The cute baby, who is a main character in the movie, needs some claps. Unlike from his previous films, Ajmal's role is not a serious one, he had tried his best to break such an image. He needs more improvement in the flexibility area. The new face Rupa Manjari is cool and attractive. Mani Sharma had given good music, especially the bg score and the TTTT theme used is notable. Cinematography by Sudheer is rich and colorful. The art work supporting the colorful environment inside the office and the house are good. The story of 'TTTT' is not complicated, the way in which the new writer-director Nandini presented it, should be appreciated.

'Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru' is a simple and funny film targeting high class families and the multiplex audiences. It is not the best, but it can be watched keeping in mind that such an attempt comes from a lady director...

Rating : 7 / 10
