Theethum Nandrum Movie Review: Although the film stands out for the way emotions have been handled between varied characters, it takes your own time to set the plot.

Theethum Nandrum begins with a petrol litter robbery by three thieves: Siva, Daas and Maaran are repeat offenders, but they manage to escape with impunity. Daas (Eesan) and Siva (Rasu Ranjith) are close friends, and their equation remains the same even after the former hooks up with Sumathi (Aparna Balamurali). Although Sumathi asks Daas to say goodbye to the compulsive crime, he commits the illegal act again, along with Siva and Maaran. However, this time he is caught and is serving a punishment.
Daas, who becomes a changed man after getting out of jail, vows not to commit any more robberies. But fate had other plans for him. Maaran (Sandeep Raj) convinces him and Siva to join him for a robbery one last time. Will they be caught again?
The film stands out for the way in which emotions have been managed between various characters. The husband-wife relationship and friendship between Daas and Siva are interesting enough for viewers to empathize with them. The director, who also played one of the leads (Rasu Ranjith) and has also edited the film, manages to create the right tension during the robbery scenes. The action scene at the climax is well choreographed and all the performers play their roles well. Eesan and Aparna score in emotional scenes, while Rasu and Sandeep are compelling in their contrasting roles.
On the downside, the film takes its own time to set up a gang war between two groups in northern Chennai, which becomes an integral part of the story in the second half. The romantic track between Siva and Tamil (Lijomol José) could have been better. Although the antagonist achieves a compelling performance, his role requires more finesse. The technical aspects are strictly correct.
