Dhanush, Samantha and Amy Jackson starrer "Thanga Magan" (Thangamagan) has opened to fairly positive reviews from the audience.
After "Velailla Pattadhari", Dhanush, Velraj, Anirudh have joined hands for the similar kind of film, which was earlier believed to be a sequel to their previous film. And for the actor, it is his fourth release in 2015 after Bollywood film "Shamitabh", "Anegan" and "Maari".
The movie, which which has ace filmmaker KS Ravikumar, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Sathish, Jayaprakash, MS Bhaskar and others are in the cast, has drawn a lot of attention through the promotions. Importantly, the trailer and the audio have impressed the audience. Hence, there is a lot expectations from the film. Moreover, the success of their previous movie "Velailla Pattadhari" have made people keep high hopes on the flick.
Without wandering around hero's introduction or exaggerated commercial elements, we are directly introduced to the story. Tamizh (Dhanush) is the son of KS Ravikumar and Raadhika Sarathkumar in "Thanga Magan". He will be a happy-go-lucky guy until he falls in love with Hema D'Souza (Amy Jackson).
Like in every love story, the couple has some issues and they break-up. Samantha comes to his life as his wife and just when all seems to be well in his life a tragedy strikes in the form of his father's suicide. The hero now wants to know the reason why his father took his life.
Average Ratings Given by Audience: 2.5
The first half of "Thanga Magan" has universally got good reviews. But the major problem lies in the second half. However, the audience has declared that it is easily a passable entertainer.

All set for #ThangaMagan
Half way through #ThangaMagan. Lovely. Realistic. Dhanush churns out another accessible family drama. Quite fun and a good interval block.
#Thangamagan: Second half falls flat. Predictable and feels so long despite its short running time. A passable outing.
#ThangaMagan Gud 1st half, very nice screenplay. Dhanush as usual theri, comedy scenes are gud, Amy needs to improve her acting skills!!!!!
@Ms_offl no masss scenes...
#ThangaMagan !Fun filled first half and dramatic 2nd half. Dhanush, KSR and radhika superb perf, baddie role not strong!! Worth watch!!!

#Thangamagan 3.25/5. Heroines+ @iamAmyJackson is convincing & her romance with D fab. @Samanthaprabhu2 good, fits in perfectly as the wife.
#Thangamagan 3.25/5. Classy supporting cast, @actorsathish a scream, @realradikaa simply awesome & #KSR shines in a pivotal role.
#ThangaMagan - friendship, comedy counters, love before & after marriage, songs & RR, villainy, action. @Samanthaprabhu2 @dhanushkraja
#Thangamagan - @Samanthaprabhu2 's career best. Neat and composed performance without much noise or glamour. Well done.

#ThangaMagan @dhanushkraja nailed it yetagain n sodid thecast.fullon entertainmnt.@anirudhofficial scores bigtime.Job well done velraj team.
#Thangamagan interval - Story canb related wid our own lives. Throws us back 2 our teen love, friendshp etc. Those good & bad times with ex.
#Thangamagan- Dhanush was good. Certain places he is trying to imitate superstar with his dialogue delivery. Samantha dubs through her nose.
#Thangamagan- Dhanush has played a lot with the upper lips of Samantha and Amy. Initimate scenes between the lead were quite realistic.
All those who want 2 watch #Thangamagan, can enjoy first half and come back home in interval. Pain in the ass was so unbearable in 2nd half.
#Thangamagan- Second half is another VIP where amul baby villain gets defeated by local boy Dhanush with school boys strategy.
#Thangamagan- Bad.. a very bad second half that lets down the beautiful mood created by first half.
