Tamizh Padam 2 review: A Fun ride
The storyline is normal as the first part, but director C.S. Amudhan candid style work well again by mocking stars and scenes. All the Tamil SuperStars and their films are mocked in good measure in Tamizh Padam 2.
Director C.S. Amudhan, who gave us the comical film “Tamizh Padam” a few years ago. Same as the first part, this one also works much better as if you have watched the films being trolled in Part 2. There’s a clever comedy by actor Jiiva in a cameo appearance, that will make you laugh if you have watched Ko film starring actor jiiva and karthika Nair. There’s another wisecrack at Ajith’s film, that will make you laugh if you have watched Vivegam film starring Ajith and Kajal Agarwal as lead. Shiva trolls Gautham Menon’s workplace the most of the director’s outrage; he took reference from these movie scenes; Kaakha Kaakha, Neethane En Ponvasantham, Vinnaithandi Varuvaya,Vaaranam Aayiram and Vettaiyadu Vilaiyaadu. And all these scenes from the part 2 will be remembered as memorable sequences.
Shiva is the safeguard of the film, with his strange dialogue delivery and self-comedy timing. He’s comfortable with the satirical genre, and that shows in most of the sequences. He also mocked the political incidents with good humour including demonetisation and the political situation in Tamilnadu, this will definitely get widely circulated on social media.
Tamizh Padam 2 does get a little drawback scythe the second half, especially because of the historical flashback scenes that have been a reference from Baahubali. It is like match-the-following to connect the scenes with previous films. There is another trick that keeps yourself engaged if the comedy is getting too unexciting, keep a look on the things that are used by Shiva in the frame. Like the bike he rides is the same as Dhanush’s VIP.
