Oru Naal Koothu Plot:
Oru Naal Koothu is a light-hearted entertainer that
talks about the dilemma that springs up when it comes to marriage.
What works in favour of the movie is that it targets contemporary
Dinesh and Nivetha Pethuraj play IT professionals and are in
love with each other. What keeps Dinesh from tying the knot with
his girlfriend is his family. He aspires to secure his family's
future before starting his own.
Riythvika, a 28-year-old RJ, is finding it difficult to find a
suitable groom and her elder brother, played by Karunakaran, wants
to marry off his sister before starting his own marriage
Mia George's father on the other hand, wants to marry his
daughter off to a wealthy person. Narrated from 3 different
perspectives, Oru Naal Koothu is about what happens in the
lives of these mentioned characters at the time of their respective
One of the biggest strengths of this movie is its lead actors
and their performances. While Dinesh and Mia George put up
believable acts, Nivetha Pethuraj, who was recently crowned Miss
India-UAE, makes a decent debut, which might earn her few more
Riythvika consolidates her Madras act by coming up with
yet another commendable performance. Karunakaran too, is impressive
in the limited screen space.
Bala Saravanan, who comes across as Dinesh's buddy and Ramesh
Thilak, who plays an RJ, have failed to evoke laughter at regular
Justin Prabhakaran's music stands out in the technical
department. Both his songs and background score play a huge role in
enhancing the overall feel.
While Gokul's cinematography adds solidity to the film, editor
VJ Sabu Joseph could've shortened the movie's length, especially in
the second half.
Screenplay by Nelson is quite enjoyable as the movie manages to
keep you interested till the very end.
Oru Naal Koothu is a refreshing take on contemporary
marriage, which most of us will relate to.
