Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is a fun-filled no-nonsense con film. The rule is to have constantly progressing predicaments, a guessing game on what is going to happen next, unpredictable twists/turns and a power-packed climax.
The second half gets a little intense and at times drags a bit. The film moves along at a pretty leisurely pace post interval and one can’t go in expecting a racy ride from start to finish. Though the overall product is quite enjoyable, the audience might have wanted a few more high points than what was on display.
