Vetri, who was seen in movies such as Strawberry and Enakkul Oruvan, turns hero with Thangaratham, a rural entertainer directed by Bala Murugan. For those want to know about Balamurugan, he has worked with noted directors like Cheran, Vijay and Jagan. In his directorial debut, Vetri has narrated the story of a youngster who carries vegetables to the market in his truck called Thangaratham.
And don’t think it is an ordinary market. For the backdrop is Oddanchatram Gandhi Vegetable Sandhai which is considered as Tamil Nadu’s second largest market after Koyambedu. Vetri, mentored by an influential man (Aadukalam Naren), owns a truck called Thangaradham and he carries vegetable loads from Oddanchatram market. Soundararajan too owns one tempo and there is professional rivalry between Vetri and him. In the meantime, Vetri falls for Aditi, who is sister of Soundararajan.
As expected, Vetri’s enmity with Soundararajan attempts to play spoilsport his romance with Aditi. Meanwhile, Naren draws a plan to save Vetri from Soundararajan’s anger. But the plan of Naren goes haywire and indeed creates confusion in the lives of everyone. What happens then and whether Vetri is able to join hands with his ladylove forms an emotional climax.
Vetri is good, and Soundararajan is the right choice for his role. Aditi is cute and emotes well too. Aadukalam Naren, Naan Kadavul Rajendran and others have done justice. Though the film has got all ingredients like romance, comedy and emotions, it appears like a television serial in certain places. But still, Thangaratham has its own moments.
