Thoongaa Vanam (2015)
Thoongaa Vanam is a crime thriller film directed by Rajesh M. Selva starring Kamal Hassan, Trisha, Prakash Raj, Kishore and Asha Sarath. The film was jointly produced by Raaj Kamal Films International and Sri Gokulam Movies. The film is an adaptation of the 2011 French film Sleepless Night.
The film opens with an exciting drug heist staged by two senior officers CK Dhiwakar (Kamal) and Mani (Yugi Sethu). They flee with over 10 kilos of cocaine but their joy is shortlived.
Dhiwakar’s young son is kidnapped by Vital Rao (Prakash Raj), a dangerous drug dealer, who is under pressure to deliver the drugs to someone higher in the chain.
Dhiwakar is now desperate to return the drugs and free his son. But redemption is not easy and he gets sucked deeper and deeper into the mess. He gets investigated by two other officers of the bureau, Mallika (Trisha) and her colleague (Kishore).
With both the good and bad guys after him, Dhiwakar is slowly running out of time.
Almost the entire film has been shot inside a nightclub, where everyone appears to be chasing the other, without any success. Most of the fight sequences are shot in the kitchen. The rest is to watch and find out considering the genre of the movie.
