Dhanush has not delivered a big hit in the
recent times in Kollywood. He has been due for a big hit in Tamil
films after critically-acclaimed movie Aadukalam. However,
his Bollywood debut Raanjhanaa in 2013 turned out to be a
successful affair and it had given him a relief. Now, he is
returning to Kollywood with Naiyaandi.
Naiyaandi became a talk of the town in the present week when Nazriya Nazim went public making some strange allegations against the director of the movie, Sarkunam. It gave a good publicity and made people to curiously await for the release. How far it has helped the movie? Read review to know it...
Sarkunam draws your attention with the narration. The credit
card gives an introduction about the characters. Dhanush is shown
as a careless guy, who is at his uncle's place. He has two elder
unmarried brothers played by Sriman and Sathyan. His daily life
begins and ends with his cousin Soori (Soori). He is in love with
dentist Vana Roja (Nazriya Nazim), who has come to the village to
stay with her grandma for some days. With the support of his gang,
he does several tricks to impress her. But none of them work in
Accidentally, heroine falls in love with him. Well, her rich
father, who has never said 'no' to anything that she had asked for,
has taken a promise that she would marry the boy chosen by him.
Well, on the other end, she has started loving Dhanush. But the
kind and lovely father fixes an alliance with Vamsi Krishna, who
plays the role of a baddie in the movie.
Naiyaandi Movie Review
The story of Naiyaandi is partially engaging and there
are a few well-written one-liners. Dhanush and his side-kicks
struggle hard to bring laughter on the faces of the
No doubt, Sarkunam has got a decent story in hand. But the
screenplay and scenes are badly written. Apart from interesting
introduction, there is hardly anything fresh in the movie.
Inspired By Meleparambil Aanveedu
Having taken inspiration from Malayalam movie Meleparambil
Aanveedu, the director has lost complete control over the
screenplay in Naiyaandi.
First And Second Halves
There is nothing engaging in the first half. It is only second
half, which has something to offer to the audience.
Dhanush has done his usual job. He is good and has lived up to
his character. Soori, Sathyan, Pyramid Natarajan and other
characters have played their parts well.
Nazriya Nazim Steals Show
Nazriya Nazim, who was in the news for wrong reasons, emerges as
a winner. Her lovely face expressions and acting are the plus
points of the flick.
Velraj's cinematography is good. But it is Ghibran's music score
that stands out from all other technical departments.
The only saving grace in the movie is - Nazriya Nazim. Had she
not played the female lead, it would have been difficult for
audience to sit in the theatres till the end. Her controversy may
not have helped the movie, but it has made people notice her
Dhanush has made a wrong choice!
