Indrudu - Movie Review: Keeps You Awake

In Thiru's Indrudu, the Telugu dubbed version of Tamil film Naan Sigappu Manithan, neither do you have a hero to cheer for (because he's asleep mostly as he suffers from a rare sleep disorder) nor a typical villain. You don't have a comedian and comedy tracks to keep you entertained. You have a second heroine but she doesn't play the hero's love interest. Yet what makes this commercial Telugu outing a laudable effort?

Indrudu stands testimonial to the fact that a simple story that has been milked dry over the years can still be narrated in myriad engaging ways. One such way is what we see in this film, which is not an exceptional thriller, but definitely has the potential to keep you hooked.

A man (Vishal) suffering from Narcolepsy (a sleep disorder that forces him to fall asleep whenever he experiences extreme emotion) since birth has to hunt down those responsible for an irreparable incident in his life?

Most Indian films with rare medical issues in the narrative lack logical explanation. Indrudu does not fall in that league of films and instead scores an ace for treating narcolepsy the way it is supposed to be portrayed on screen. For instance, songs are introduced from time to time in the narrative for commercial reasons, but the hero who happens to be happily dancing does fall asleep when he experiences extreme happiness. In another song, he merely walks in stylish designer outfits. By taking care of these trivial details, the makers have earned some respect from the audience.
