Imaikkaa Nodigal Review

Imaikkaa Nodigal is indeed a thriller of a ride. Director Ajay Gnanamuthu has once again shown his expertise in keeping the audiences thrilled with the narrative pattern. The way in which he has thrown the surprises in the most unexpected time is very impressive.

RD Rajasekhar's Cinematography deserves special mention. Hip Hop Thamizha's BGM serves its purpose exceedingly well, as it adds to the intensity and mood of the movie.

Imaikkaa Nodigal has everything in it to keep you engaged as well as thrilled for the majority of its runtime.

Imaikka Nodigal is another film which joins the bandwagon of thriller flicks released in Kollywood in the recent times. But it isn't just another attempt, as it has its own moments, thrills, suspense, action and emotions.

Anurag Kashyap as the menacing killer has given one of his best performances in his Kollywood debut.

Our overall critic’s rating is not an average of the sub scores below.

The film compromises its intentions by resorting to too many songs, a lengthy back story, pointless romantic portions in the early half that slacken the pace, the logical loopholes in the action sequences and a hurried, unbelievable end.

The Lion vs hyena game is a fascinating idea and it perfectly syncs with the theme of the film.

Imaikkaa Nodigal is well shot and skillfully executed, but what it needed was a tighter script with fewer holes.

Nayanthara, in yet another attempt to pick interesting roles, goes the extra mile to play CBI officer Anjali Vikramadithiyan, and boy! She nails the character.

Imaikka Nodigal is well-written and there is no denying it. Watch the ‘lion-hyena’ analogy become the pivot of the story as the film progresses.
