Thaarai Thappattai is a typical Bala film, which is filled with gruesome and brutal action sequences along with characters below poverty line and struggling for daily food. Yes, there are not many directors, who can make films out of people below poverty line but it is not fair for a director to repeat things in each and every film.

Thaarai Thappattai is no way different from all other Bala movies. The only difference is of course, we have heroine comes as a hero. Yes, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar is the actual protagonist of the film but somehow, the storyline puts her dark in the second half.

Had Bala given equal scope to Varalakshmi in second half, Thaarai Thappattai would have been a refreshing watch from the director's earlier movies but now, its the same old story in the new bottle called lives of folk artists.

After Varalakshmi, it is Ilaiyaraaja's music and Chezhiyan's cinematography which add more novel essence to the film. The bottom line is, Bala fans can watch Tharaai Thappattai one but others can stay away!
