The movie starts off with serial blasts rocking London.After a year,Vikram is seen killing people one after another with the help of an unidentified woman.Interestingly,He is blind and uses echolocation skill to detect the environment.Sarah (Amy Jackson) is a beauty contest winner and she develops a soft corner for him. In the flashback, His past is revealed. We get to know that his real name is Shiva Kumar and he was once a RAW officer. He was also married to Anushka and Sarath (Jagapathi Babu) was his good friend cum colleague. The rest of the story tells us how the protagonist is drawn into problems and whether he will be able to accomplish his mission of taking revenge.
Vikram is the best in siva thandavam both as Sivakumar and blind man Kenny.Vikram has lived the roles and handled the film siva thandavam on his shoulders with fewer dialogues and more eye expressions.Anushka has done her role well and especially her entrance scene in rain has got good response from audiences.Amy Jackson was good.gapati Babu role as antagonist was not impressive at any extent.Nasser as intelligent officer, Santhanam as taxi driver and Saranya as Vikram’s mother have put a decent show.
Director of this film A.L.Vijay has screwed the entire film with his predictable story, unimpressive screenplay and disappointing directional skills. He crashed Vikram’s dream of hitting a success in Tollywood.Nirav cinematography work is the only good part in the technical side of this film. Music composed by G.V.Prakash is not up to the mark of his potential and Anthony could do much better job in the editing area of this flick.
Love Chemistry between Vikram and Anushka
Predictable Second Half
Siva Tandavam is just an attempt to showcase the talent of Vikram and director Vijay did his best to entertain the audiences.Barring few ups and downs with the pace of the movie, siva thandavam makes a decent watch.it is another effort of Vikram to showcase his talent in a different subject. The film is worth watching at least for one time.
