Thiruchitrambalam, which was released a month ago in theatres, has now dropped on OTT. The family drama, directed by Mithran R  Jawahar, is streaming on OTTplay and Sun NXT. The movie is one of the biggest hits released in Tamil this year, and fans of Dhanush are excited to the core after it attained stupendous success at the box office.

On its digital premiere today, we bring you five reasons to watch and enjoy the film on your favourite OTT platforms.  

Dhanush's performance

Needless to say, the multi-talented actor has headlined the project, and has come up with an impeccable performance as a youngster who goes through a flurry of emotions. With the depiction of the character Thiru in the film, the actor has proved again that he is the best when it comes to essaying boy-next-door roles in Tamil. The role demanded a lot of emotional requirements, and it's a treat to watch him perform flawlessly.

Solid female lead portrayal by Nithya Menen

It's seldom that we come across a film in which its female lead leaves the same impact which its male protagonist has left. Even hardcore fans of Dhanush would agree that it is Nithya Menen who dominated some of the sequences which featured the two actors. She put up one of the best performances in the movie as the protagonist's BFF. Most of the film's fans would agree all of us badly need a friend like Sobhana (Nithya's role in the film).

Relatable and fun-filled characters

Prakash Raj's character of an upright father, who is not on good terms with his son, is a role some of us can relate to. He's also a doting son to his father. Bharathiraja as the uber-cool granddad is one of the hilariously written roles in recent times in Kollywood. His sequences with Dhanush bring the house down, and is one of the instrumental factors in the film's success. The roles enacted by Raashi Khanna and Priya Bhavani Shankar, too, leave an impact.

Anirudh's heartfelt music

One of the reasons movie buffs had to wait for Thiruchitrambalam before its release was the popular DnA (Dhanush and Anirudh) combination that united after seven years. The songs and background score in the film lived up to expectations. It is a sheer coincidence that the last fun-filled family film of Dhanush, Velai Illa Pattadhari, which won the hearts of all sections of audience, also had music composed by Anirudh.

A feel-good family drama after ages

At a time when intense action movies like RRR, KGF 2 and Vikram have been rewriting box office records left, right and centre and setting cash registers ringing at the box office in Tamil Nadu, a breezy film like Thiruchitrambalam was a whiff of fresh air. Contrary to the masculine heroes that impressed the audience in the abovementioned movies, the protagonist of Thiruchitrambalam is an introvert who has no qualms in admitting that he always runs away when a scuffle arises.
