Navarasa Thilagam movie review is here. Starring Ma Ka Pa Anand and Srushti Dange in lead roles, Navarasa Thilagam was touted as a comic caper.
Has Navarasa Thilagam lived up to its pre-release expectations? Continue reading our movie review to know.
Navarasa Thilagam Plot:
Ma Ka Pa Anand plays that cliched role you can find in every alternative comical Tamil flicks and the character played by Karunakaran, who plays the hero's sidekick is no exception.
These two lead a carefree life and end up losing money in the name of business, gaining the wrath of Anand's father, played by Ilavarasu.
The movie takes a deviation when Anand meets the leading lady, played by Srushti Dange, post which him falling in love with her is rest assured.
When he plans to get closer to her family by befriending the guy (Siddharth Vipin) engaged to Srushti's elder sister, he realizes something crucial in accordance with his own love life.
Suddenly, Anand's sole mission is to stop Siddharth Vipin's marriage. What's the reason behind his action and will his love towards Srushti end up in marriage? Answers to these questions forms the rest of the story.
Ma Ka Pa Anand as an irresponsible youth is convincing enough. Having said that, he fails to emote well in certain scenes that requires him to convey the turn of events.
Unlike her previous flicks, Srushti Dange gets a prominent role in Navarasa Thilagam and she accepts the opportunity with open arms.
Siddharth Vipin is a treat to watch. Scenes involving him evoke laughter genuinely and is a major plus of this film. Veterans like Ilavarasu and Jayaprakash add solidity in the performance department.
Cinematography by A Ramesh is passable. But one might feel that the cameraman should've used more vibrant colours to accentuate the beauty of villages captured.
Music by Siddharth Vipin is below par. Both his songs and background score fail to impress. To make things worse, placement of songs are badly muddled.
Editing by Arul Mozhi Varman could've been better as the film looks stretched at many places, testing its audiences' patience.
Screenplay by director Kamran is below average throughout and fails to hold your interest after certain point in time.
Overall, Navarasa Thilagam is a cliched comedy flick that succeeds in making you laugh only in parts.
