Ashok Selvan has delivered a clean performance throughout the film. His expressions could have been better. Though he looks similar to actor Nanda in Thegidi, Ashok proved his capable enough.

Janani Iyer looks natural and did her parts with ease. Their on-screen chemistry highly worked out throughout the first half of the movie.

Kaali as Ashok's friend has done a commendable job and his subtle one liners bring some good laughter. Supporting characters Jayakumar, Pradeep Nair complemented the film and Jayaprakash given his best as ever in the cop role.

Technical Analysis:

'Naalaya Iyyakunar Season 2' winner P. Ramesh excelled with his pacy narration and screenplay that keeps audiences hooked. Timing has worked wonders for Thegidi that never made director slip from his theme.

Nivas Prasanna is an asset for Ashok Selvan's Thegidi. His background scores supported the film's tempo and songs were perfectly placed. Though four out of five appear in the first half viewers never complain, its relief.

Cinematography by Dinesh Krishnan elvates the scenes, especially the murder and perplexed. Songs are well captured. Leo John Paul's editing is crisp.


Debutante technicians, director P. Ramesh, composer Nivas Prasanna, cameraman Dinesh Krishnan and editor Leo John Paul perfect delivered a paisa vasool movie. Thegidi is technically high, either it be filming or dialogues or songs. Performances are just natural and the team has neatly presented an edge of the seat detective mystery in just 2 hrs, which is laudable.
