Arima Nambi is an action thriller directed by Anand Shankar, a former associate of leading filmmaker AR Murugadoss. Priya Anand has paired up with Vikram Prabhu in the Tamil flick, which also features Arjunan and Yog Japee.
The lead stars played by Vikram Prabhu and Priya Anand know each other from a few days before the actress gets kidnapped in front of him. This become the entry point to the thrilling part of Arima Nambi.
Verdict: A stylish thriller, which can be watched once.
It is love at first sight for Arjun Krishna (Vikram Prabhu) on Anamika (Priya Anand) and the movie starts with an interesting song at Hard Rock Cafe in Chennai. The couple go on date the very next day, and Anamika gets kidnapped from her home, right before the eyes of Arjun.
Vikram Prabhu has got a stylish makeover and he has carried it off in style. He packs a punch in action sequences too, however, he looks little dodgy in romantic sequences.
Verdict: 'Arima Nambi' is a classy thriller, which is tense for most part of its running time.
The movie is pleasingly stylish (kudos to the wondrous visuals by R.D Rajasekhar) and engagingly pacy. The opening of the story in a pub might set one on the verge of expecting a candy floss romance tale.
Director Anand Shankar appears to have been an obedient student from the A.R Murugadoss school, chanting the efficacious ARM mantra – make it pacy and stylish – keep the audience guessing – hold on to the pulse of the people.
Verdict: Commercial entertainer with some stylish making, worth a watch
