Vishal Krishna has given moderate hits in the recent years. His
films have done fairly well at the Box Office in spite of winning
good reviews from critics. His last film Pandia Nadu is a
classic example of it. Now, the actor, who is steadily growing as a
bankable actor, is trying his best to deliver a commercial

Now, let us see in the movie review what the team has to offer...

First Half Analysis
The first half of Naan Sigappu Manithan is well written
and keep you hooked to your seats. There are enough comedy scenes
to break your funny bones.
Second Half Analysis
The second half manages to retain the momentum that the film got
in the first half. But there are some boring moments in the second
Disturbing And Surprise Moments
The rape episode in the second half is disturbing. However,
people, who only thought about the lip-lock of Vishal and Lakshmi
Menon, has surprises in store.
Vishal Krishna is extremely brilliant in his role. He emotes
well and has given a life to his character in Naan Sigappu
Lakshmi Menon's Performance
Lakshmi Menon has come out with flying colours. She has
performed well and her chemistry with Vishal lives up to the
Jagan's performance is appreciable and Saranya is at her usual
best. Rest other characters are okay.
Technically, GV Prakash Kumar's music is good and his background
score is top notch. 'Aadu machi' and 'Idhayam unnai theduthe' songs
are our picks.
Richard M Nathan's cinematography is perfect and his work adds
weightage to the project. Anthony L Ruben's editing could have been
better in the second half.
There is no major drawback in Naan Sigappu Manithan.
The screenplay in the second half is not engaging at parts and it
could be the only big drawback in the flick.
Naan Sigappu Manithan is edge-of-the-seat entertainer.
This will be a perfect commercial film for all classes.
