Thankam Review | A Compelling Crime Drama That Fumbles in the Final Act

What made the movie Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum special, a film in which Syam Pushkaran served as a creative director, was how the thief character left a sort of pain in our hearts as we discovered him only towards the end of the film.
