Theera Kaadhal (2023), is about the complexities of love, emphasizing that the choice of a life partner encompasses not just whom to marry but also whom not to marry or the ones we let slip away. This theme of missed connections and irreversible life decisions forms the crux of the narrative. Directed by Rohin Venkatesan, the film unfolds with Jai and Aishwarya Rajesh leading the charge. Their seasoned performances ensure the delicate subject matter is handled with dignity, steering clear of vulgarity or lust, showcasing their commendable acting prowess. Sshivada, known for her role in Adhe Kangal, shines brightly as a bold, uncompromising wife, offering viewers a portrayal that breathes fresh air into a domain often clouded by clichés. Abdool Lee complements the main cast with his significant portrayal of the protagonist’s confidant, enriching the film’s exploration of marital intricacies.

Yet, for all its stellar acting, Theera Kaadhal travels down a path too well-trodden, with a storyline and secondary characters that fail to bring a new spark to the narrative. This predictability, coupled with a lack of backstory for the leads, earns the film a “Raw” rating on the Mangoidiots scale. While it might not redefine the genre of love and marriage for every viewer, it’s available on Netflix for those drawn to stories of love’s labyrinthine choices and the haunting ‘what ifs.’ But personally, it fell short of expectations.
