Bobby Simha is a honest police officer, who gets transferred to various departments and cities due to his sincerity. That's when he falls in love with his neighbour, Amala Paul, and convinces her to enter wedlock with him. In the mean time, he gets to handle a sensitive job; to eavesdrop on important people to collect some evidence about them.
Intially he does this job with utmost sincerity, but eventually gets frustrated as being honest has done nothing but cramped him within four walls. Hence he takes a staggering decision to loot the area MLA, MS Bhaskar, as Bobby had already eavesdropped on his plan about transferring a hefty sum of 10 crores to his benami for the upcoming election purposes. Once Bobby cons the MLA, he grows more confident, greedy, corrupted and decides to loot such money with technology, power, and intelligence.
Meanwhile, Prasanna is a techie and hacker, who as a hobby targets married women, flirts with them and makes them fall for him. Bobby spys on him by chance, and keeps a note on him. That's how he gets to know that he is connected with Amala Paul through Facebook, and has been continuously flirting with her as well. An enraged Bobby then tracks him down and decides to set a web where he could smartly beat him up.
But before Bobby could confront him, Prasanna walks up to him and introduces himself as Amala's Facebook friend. After that people beat up Prasanna to the point where he starts to bleed, believing that he has harassed a woman in public. Following that he maintains a brief eye contact with Bobby, who in return just smirks. Feeling irked he does a background check on the latter and hacks into his computer, which leads him to find out that there is a corrupted officer lying inside of a so called honest cop.
Prasanna uses this information to his advantage decides to turn the tables against Bobby and confidently misbehaves with Amala, who in return avoids him to no vain, as she doesn't want her husband to know about Prasanna, while Bobby doesn't want his wife to know about his job. The rest of the plot revolves around how Amala escapes from Prasanna, how Bobby Simha stops Prasanna from either exposing him or misusing the leverage he has on him.
Bobby Simha who essays the role of a honest-corrupt cop has pulled of his character well. The way he has emoted his embarrassment, the struggle to end the situation he landed himself in was portrayed really well. In the other hand Prasanna has scored his way with the movie. He fits the role of a seductive player like a glove, with his toned physique and voice as an added bonus to the manipulative, yet smart character he has delivered. Amala Paul has performed well by playing the role of a happy house wife, who enjoys all the attention and likes she gets on social media.
While Susi Ganeshan's Thiruttuppayale focused on illicit affairs, manipulation and blackmail. Thiruttuppayale 2 revolves around the reality and negativity of social network and technology. Susi has aced in the directorial department, with a not so simple script. He has given a life into the movie which gives you all the reason to be conscious when it comes to internet, because there is a reason to why it is known as the 'World Wide Web'. The story is written in such a way, where the director has shown all the characters in a complete gray shades, and has succeeded in saying that no one is perfect.
Yet, the screenplay could have been a little faster, and some scenes of Bobby Simha and Amala Paul could have been shorter, as the chemistry between the two was not as smoldering or working as it was expected it to be. P Chelladurai has cranked the camera, and he has shot well. Vidyasagar is back to the field as a music composer after a long gap, and has proved that he is still in sync with his musical talent, as his scores justify the movie's genre.
In short, Thiruttuppayale 2, is a honest attempt at a tech thriller.
