Thunichal is a 2010 Indian Tamil action film written and directed by Majith. Starring Arun Vijay and newcomer Shiva Manjal, the film, was released on 1 January 2010, after much delays.




The shooting for Thunichal originally began shooting in May 2005, with the shooting being completed by the end of the year, except for the dubbing portions.[1] Subsequently, the film was postponed indefinitely due to unknown reasons, and remained unreleased. The actors and director involved moved on to participate with other projects. However, after the success of lead actor, Arun Vijay's Malai Malai, the producers decided to use his new found publicity to launch their own film. Arun Vijay, displeased that the move could hamper his new found image at the box office, lodged a complaint with the Nadigar Sangam alleging that the producers of Thunichal were attempting to release the film without his voice.[2] Soon after, he retracted his statements and refuted that the film would not damage his reputation.[3]

Professional reviews


Upon release, the film received highly negative reviews. A reviewer from claimed in regard to the cast that "Arun Vijay seems to be in a lost plot after his Malai Malai high but that Ramana impressed with "his cold villainy" and the "other performances don’t count for much". The director was criticzed, citing that "he fails to hold the viewers’ attention right from the start" and a "few interesting scenes which would have enhanced the quality of the film". In regard to the work from the technical crew, the reviewer cited that "there is nothing much that stands out", whilst music by Premji Amaran "fails to make any sort of impact".


The soundtrack was the first soundtrack composed by music director Premji Amaran, who during the postponement of the film, went on to become a popular actor.
