Theevandi is about a chain smoker, Tovino plays the role of Bineesh Damodaran, a youngster who can never be seen without a cigarette in his hand. The plot of the movie revolves around Bineesh, from the childhood to teenage. and his addiction and the impact it has on others and his relationship with them. the love story with Samyuktha Menon forms the crux.
The first half of the film is funny as we see teenager Tovino giggling with his friends and trying out his first smoke, and he manages to blow out a few rings without coughing, unlike his friends. The second half of the movie is more engaging than the first, the story moves forward by leaving the conflict part and comedy drives.
Tovino Thomas is a show stealer, he has given a stellar performance as a chain smoker. Suraj Venjarammoodu played a pivotal role and delivered outstanding performance. Debutante Samyuktha is promising in her role. Saiju Kurup, Shammi Thilakan, Surabhi Lakshmi and Sudheer did justice to their roles. Music is the major highlight of the movie, Kailas Menon tunes are very attractive. cinematography by Gautham Sankar is good. Theevandi has all elements, Humour, Social message, political satire, and romance
Theevandi is a total package
