Vamsi Paidipally-directorial "Thozha" has opened to extremely positive reviews from the audience and critics. It has Karthi, Nagarjuna and Tamanna Bhatia in the leads. The film has been simultaneously made in Telugu as "Oopiri."

Take a look at 'Thozha' Movie Stills | 'Zero' Movie Review

Prakash Raj, Ali, Jayasudha, Vivek and many others are in the cast. Gopi Sunder has composed the music for "Thozha" and PS Vinod has handled the cinematography. While Praveen KL has edited the Tamil version, Madhu has edited "Oopiri." 

The movie tells the story of a quadriplegic millionaire and an emotionally-challenged person. While Nagarjuna plays the role of a physically-challenged man, Karthi plays his caretaker in "Thozha." It is the South Indian remake of French movie "The Intouchables."

Carefree boy Seenu (Karthi) believes money is the source of happiness. On the other side, quadriplegic billionaire Vikram (Nagarjuna), despite having all the best things in life, is not happy. What happens when two people with different views meet and how they make their lives better form the crux of the story. 

Average Ratings Given by Audience: 3.5

Review:
People have praised the brilliance of the director in handling the subject. Nagarjuna and Karthi have taken away all the limelight with their stupendous performance, as per the audience. Tamanna Bhatia looks stunningly beautiful. Prakash Raj and Vivek too have done justice to their roles. But needless songs in the film have not gone well with the viewers. The rich visuals have come as a bonus for the cine-goers. Find the viewers' response here:

Sidhu tweets: #Thozha: Few needless songs and dull moments aside, this is worth a watch. Hats off to PS Vinod and Raju Murugan who excel in their depts.
#Thozha: Liked how it never goes over the top with its melodramatic scope. Karthi's comic flow is amazing, he kept the ribs tickling.
#Thozha: Endearing. Lovely adaptation of the French classic, well within Indian sensibilities. Tugs your heart and leaves you with a smile.
#Thozha Interval: Small niggles aside, good film so far with ample comedy and emotions. Karthi-Nag's bromance works well, making it tick
Anyways, watching #Thozha now. With my subtitle ah nambi Tamil padam paakara thozha.

Kaushik LM tweeted: #Thozha - 3.25 /5. 2nd half is when both #karthi and #nag make peace with their lives. The ending is beautiful. Go watch this feel-good tale
#Thozha - 3.25 /5.. Sure to work with family audiences this summer. #Karthi shoulders the film so charmingly. Such a likable character.
#Thozha - 3.25 /5.. Very nice film on relationships - bromance, family and life partners. Sentiments make the right connect. @PVPCinema
#Thozha 1st half -the way #Karthi addresses #Nag as Anna, their combination scenes &bonding hold the film together. Emotional interval block
#Thozha 1st half- Long at 85mins but engaging content with good sentiments. Local #Karthi & royal #Nag are big +. Just 1 needless item song.
#Thozha 1st half -Nice emotional depth. Bromance works big time. #Karthi rocking with his spontaneity. #Nag is majestic with his look, smile

Haricharan Pudipeddi posted: #Thozha at interval. Largely fun thanks 2 #Karthi's amazing screen presence. Also packs in appropriate emotional moments. Entertains & moves
The camaraderie between @iamnagarjuna and #Karthi comes alive in every scene, making it thoroughly entertaining to watch em on screen.

Raisa Nasreen tweeted: #Thozha: Downers include the homophobic jokes, the item song & constant insight on how to get a girl. Could've been conveyed in a diff way.
#Thozha: glad that it was packaged as a pakka Tamil movie. Otherwise films which release in multiple lang simply look like dubbed films.
#Thozha: my fav Tamannaah is extra pretty. Doesn't Come across as a mere eye candy. Liked her performance.
#Thozha: Karthi's role as an aimless youth who turns responsible in not new. However, this performance of his stands out.
#Thozha: #Nagarjuna just stopped ageing. What a lovely performance. Conveyed how vulnerable yet strong minded his character is.
