Plot
Singaravelan
aka
Singam
(Vijay
Sethupathi)
was
born
during
a
political
rally
and
believes
that
he
is
destined
to
be
a
politician.
He
tries
his
best
to
win
the
trust
of
his
idol
Rayappan
(R
Parthiban),
a
powerful
politician.
In
the
process,
he
sidelines
Mangalam
(Bhagavathi
Perumal),
who
is
a
close
aid
of
Rayappan.
This
provokes
Mangalam
who
physically
assaults
Singam,
leading
him
to
have
a
split-personality
disorder.
However,
Singam’s
eventual
acts
strain
his
relationships
with
his
younger
sister
Manimekalai
(Manjima
Mohan),
and
lady
love
Kamatchi
(Raashi

Starrer
Script
&
Direction
Delhi
Prasad
Deenadayalan
makes
an
excellent
directorial
debut
with

Tughlaq
Durbar,
which
is
an
enjoyable
political
comedy
with
a
touch
of
fantasy.
The
film
has
an
interesting
storyline,
and
the
almost
engaging
narrative
makes
it
a
solid
watch.
The
internal
battles
of
Singam
are
well-written
and
executed.
The
brilliant
usage
of
satire
in
the
narrative
deserves
special
mention.
The
lead
character,
played
by
Vijay
Sethupathi
is
well-written
and
flushed
out.
However,

Tughlaq
Durbar
is
not
a
flawless
film.
Most
of
the
characters
are
monotonous
and
had
zero
character
development
despite
having
a
scope.
Also,
the
predictability
factor
hits
the
narrative
towards
its
second
half.
Even
though
it
has
a
highly
promising
storyline
that
had
the
potential
to
emerge
as
an
extraordinary
movie
experience,

Tughlaq
Durbar
ends
up
as
a
simple,
fun
entertainer. Laabam

Review:
Audiences
Heap
Praises
On
Vijay
Sethupathi-Shruti
Haasan
Starrer!
Performances
Vijay
Sethupathi
has
played
Singam
to
near
perfection,
and
scores
with
his
extraordinary
comic
timing.
The
National
award-winner
steals
the
show
especially
in
the
scenes
that
bring
out
the
negative
shades
of
his
character.
R
Parthiban
is
brilliant
as
Rayappan,
despite
his
character
being
a
mere
copy
of
some
of
his
previous
roles.
The
excellent
camaraderie
between
Sethupathi
and
Parthiban
is
one
of
the
biggest
highlights
of

Tughlaq
Durbar.
Raashi
Khanna
delivers
a
decent
performance
as
Kamatchi
in
her
minimal
role.
Manjima
Mohan
also
shines
in
her
role
despite
having
limited
screen
time.
Karunakaran,
who
appears
as
Singam’s
best
friend,
has
played
his
part
to
near
perfection.
Sathyaraj
excels
in
his
interesting
cameo
appearance.
The
rest
of
the
cast
are
good
in
their
respective
roles.
Technical
Aspects
Manoj
Paramahamsa
and
Mahendiran
Jayaraju’s
cinematography
is
unarguably
the
biggest
strength
of

Tughlaq
Durbar
(especially,
the
scene
in
which
Singam’s
split-personality
comes
into
existence
is
shot
spectacularly).
R
Govindaraj
scores
with
the
crisp
editing.
Govind
Vasantha,
the
talented
musician
has
done
a
great
job
with
the
background
score
of

Tughlaq
Durbar,
which
sets
up
the
perfect
mood
for
the
narrative.
The
songs
are
also
impressive.
Verdict
Tughlaq
Durbar
is
an
absolute
fun
ride,
that
narrates
an
interesting
story
in
the
backdrop
of
politics
with
a
good
dose
of
humour.
Despite
its
minor
flaws,
this
Vijay
Sethupathi
starrer
emerges
as
a
solid
entertainer.
