Cast: Satyadev, Priyanka Jawalkar, Bramhaji, Ajay, Jhansi
Director: Sharan Koppisetty
Produced By: Mahesh S. Koneru and Yarabolu Srujan

A young lawyer- Ramachandra (Satyadev) starts getting deep into an old case in which a bar employee was wrongly framed. What are the shocking revelations made during the course of the investigation? Will lawyer Ramachandra be able to free the innocent and punish the culprits in this 8-year-old case forms the crux of Thimmarusu.

Story: A cab driver’s murder followed by the arrest of an innocent bystander starts the chain of the story. Young lawyer Ramachandra an idealist and honest charactered person chances upon this case 8 years later. The police have wrongly framed the innocent bar employee for the murder in haste. And, it is now up to lawyer Ramachandra to ensure justice prevails and the criminals are punished.

Performance: Just like his previous movies, Satyadev excels in his role as an idealist lawyer. He looks earnest and sincere in his intentions and carries the role quite effortlessly. Interestingly, this is the first time he had to feature in action sequences and performs convincingly in the fights. Ajay as the antagonist has nothing new to offer and has played similar roles a number of times in his career. Bramhaji as Satyadev’s assistant provides decent comic relief and is a great addition to the Thimmarusu cast. Other cast members such as Priyanka Jawalkar, Jhansi and Harsha Chemudu have nothing special to play and are underused.

Analysis: The movie starts off slow and even the eventual runtime of over 2 hours appears to be long. However, once the film picks up the pace and the game of cat and mouse begins, you will get immersed in it. The movie delivers decent fight scenes and twists towards the end. For a proper murder mystery, a lot depends on jumps and the BGM following that and Sricharan Pakala has done a good job with the music. Director Sharan Koppisetty has stayed faithful to the original Kannada version and hasn’t deviated from the basic premise. However, slow screenplay and lack of good roles for support cast reveals the occasional weakness of the film.

Plus Points:

Satyadev’s performance


Action sequences


Minus Points:

Dragged screenplay

Supporting Cast is wasted

Weak writing in the first half

Verdict: Overall Thimmarusu is a decent crime thriller and investigating part is neatly done. Like the original film ‘Birbal Triology’, the entire movie rests on the lead actor (Satyadev’s) shoulder. Satyadev has done a great job with not just performance but also has been impressive in action scenes. The film redeems itself in the second half and with Thimmarusu having a good buzz amongst the audience, the film might end up doing well at the box office.
