Two Line Reviews - #185

Movie: Nadunisi Naaigal (Thamizh,2011)

Plot: A kid traumatized by the sex abuse of his father & co., is later saved and fostered by a neighbour house lone lady. After a few years, dreams from his gory past disturb him and he becomes extremely possessive of his foster neighbour. He kills her newly wed husband and there the killing spree begins.
When he finally abducts a special lover, his spree comes to an end.

  • Gautham Menon proves his point quite convincingly - A film can be presented in an engaging fashion without songs and even a background score. The subject treated is quite different and has been handled deftly. Though it has shades of two famous films from the past, the film on the whole is daringly new.
  • Veera - The man who plays the psycho has done a very good job. Except a bit of over-acting in a few exaggerated scenes, his role is a delight to watch.
  • Some of the dialogues in the film stand out and so does the camera work.
  • The last half an hour or so of the film is special.
  • Most of the questions are logically answered (some convincingly, some not) but why the victims' hair is collected remains unanswered.
  • Sameera Reddy gets into the film so late that she doesn't have much scope.
Won't be liked by all; But,Surely a connoisseur's delight!
