Ganesh Vinayakan’s Thaen is an underdog’s fight against a flawed system. The protagonist, Velu, is a victim of the greedy corporates and the hazards caused by their factories. Thaen is hardly the first Tamil film to have this storyline at its core, so novelty is not the main pull here. When the narrative is predictable, it is the performances and the making that keep the audience invested.
But here, despite having able lead actors, because of issues with the direction, there is a disconnect between the audience and the film. We see Tharun’s Velu breaking down and Abarnadhi’s Poonkodi squirming in pain during several scenes, but their pain hardly touches us.
At times we feel we don’t know the characters enough to mourn with them, and other times, we are just perplexed by how everyone they cross paths with is invariably evil.Kurinji malai, the hill-top village the couple lives in, is their Eden in a sense. Just as Adam and Eve, who were safe in their garden, went through sufferings once they descended to the earth, Velu and Poonkodi meet many demons after leaving their abode.Things turn unrealistically cruel and from the VAO to the ambulance driver, everyone they bump into treats them with an overdose of hate. Even the rare kind ones, who offer the couple a helping hand, change their minds in the very next scene for no reason.
