Dheena and Darshan, who made his debut with Sivakarthikeyan-produced Kanaa, and Keerthi Pandian, daughter of veteran actor Arun Pandian, are playing lead roles in adventure comedy film, Thumbaa. It is directed by Harish Ram, who had earlier worked as an associate director in the films like Ethir Neechal, Kaaki Sattai and Kodi.
The film has the music of Anirudh Ravichander, Vivek-Mervin and Santhosh Dhayanidhi. While R Kalaivanan has done the editing, Naren Elan has handled the cinematography department.
Varsha (Keerthi Pandian) is a wildlife photographer, who comes on an assignment to forest to capture the photos of a tiger. She gets the help from her Hari (Darshan) and Umapathy (Dheena) in her mission. All three have different motives and the situations that they land due to their actions form the crux of the story.
Thumbaa is a children film set in live and real locations. Harish Ram has prepared the script keeping kids in mind which has no scope for obscenity or a romantic track. Using extensive computer graphics, many characters have been created that include a tiger, which is the main attraction of the film.
The movie has piqued the interest of the audience with its trailer. Will it live up to the viewers' expectations? Check out the audience's response below:
Rajasekar: Liked #Thumbaa. Though it's not a perfect film, definitely deserves some love from our Tamil audiences for the lovely message & the young team's first of its kind attempt. Felt that the writing could've been better in the 1st half otherwise a decent film. Kids ll surely enjoy
#Thumbaa - liked the bubbly @ikeerthipandian in the film, the endearing bond between her and the Tiger cub in the climax is . She is a 'Tamil' actress for real so hope our filmmakers and audiences offer good characters for this raw talent!
