Have you ever watched a movie which at the end makes you feel that it's a good one, but could have been better? Well, this is a rare case, and Thaandavam falls into this category. Good directors like Vijay should avoid inserting cliche and silly scenes, forcing unnecessary fight and song sequences (though the picturization was an eye-treat) into the screenplay and leaving illogical loopholes in the storyline of a movie. Thaandavam could have been way much better with a fixed-phase screenplay and a refurnished story. Nevertheless, it's a decent execution with Vikram, beautiful cinematography, poetic scenes and breezy music being the strong pillars of the movie.
