How often do you see Yugi Sethu sporting a balaclava and killing people? How often do you see a lesbian couple going for it on screen in tamil cinema? Homosexual implication between the hero and the villain? A kamal film without any unnecessary Kamal fawning? Thoongavanam had all of these. But for someone like me who still hasn’t recovered from the awesomeness of Uttama Villain, Thoongavam needed something much more to make it a great film. The fanboy in me was waiting till the end to jump out of excitement but the movie made the neutral viewer side of me take over rather easily.
