Verdict: Suriya delivers an A-1 performance in this complete masaledaar package. Based on the true story of the infamous 1987 Opera House heist, where the TBZ jewellers were robbed of approximately 3.5 million worth of jewellery, writer and director Vignesh ShivN brings to the big screen, an action-packed, colourful dance numbered and factful film&... ...Read full review
Taking the core plot of Neeraj Pandey`s Special 26, a solid caper, Vignesh ShivN has come up with a heist film that is playful for the most parts, but gets message-heavy in the end. He has also carried over the music video sensibility of his Naanum Rowdydhaan and this style injects playfulness and lightness to the narrative of TSK in the first half. ...Read full review
Vignesh Shivan (styled as Vignesh ShivN) has come out with a racy heist comedy entertainer Thaanaa Serndha Koottam (TSK), based on Neeraj Pandeys Special 26 (2013). Sivan has taken the basic plot and reworked it, made some crucial changes and given it a typical Tamil mass hero movie packaging (with generous helpings of Anirudh Ravichanders chartbusters) to suit local tastes. ...Read full review
It would be unfair to call Thaana Serndha Koottam the remake of Akshay Kumar-starrer Special 26. This is Special 26 the way only Tamil cinema could have done it with romance, drama and back story, all rolled into a heist film. ...Read full review
Whenever regional filmmakers decide to make a heist film with a bunch of big star cast, our imagination directly goes to the renowned Oceans series. TSK has a core plot that is pretty similar to the Hindi film Special 26. It must be noted that they have acquired the rights to the Hindi film and Vignesh ShivN has modified the screenplay completely to suit the local audience. TSK actually looks like a highly original product that is sure to get its applause. ...Read full review
Time for an admission. I havent watched Special 26. But I dont think Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and Special 26 are the same kind of films despite sharing the plot. So a fair warning as well dont walk in expecting a Special 26. With these disclaimers, I can say that Thaanaa Serndha Koottam does have its enjoyable moments but with a misplaced sense of righteousness that prevent it from the being the caper it could have been. ...Read full review
The story of Thaana Serndha Koottam is set in the 1980s and is loosely based on the Hindi movie Special 26. The film takes us through the life of a youngster whose big dream is to become a CBI officer. But, fate goes against him and he with some of his friends, form a gang that does fake raid. ...Read full review
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is a remake of Neeraj Pandeys Special 26, which was about a group of con artists who conduct raids pretending to be CBI officials and saunter away with the loot. If youve seen the original, the question given the general air of moral uprightness that surrounds the Tamil-film hero is whether theyll retain the gleeful sense of amorality around the crimes. ...Read full review
Vignesh Shivn, to be honest, isnt even trying to make a heist film. Instead, hes gone for the sort of saviour film we have seen quite a bit of. Its probably because the business model here isnt all too encouraging of stars doing genre-loyal, clever films. ...Read full review
