filmibeat.comDhanush has not delivered a big hit in the recent times in Kollywood. He has been due for a big hit in Tamil films after critically-acclaimed movie Aadukalam. However, his Bollywood debut Raanjhanaa in 2013 turned out to be a succesful affair and i..

Even though the movie does manage to crack you up from time to time, it fails to gain momentum, and you will find yourself squirming at the interval bang. What follows is a much better half, which is laded with more laughs than it originally promised. Sriman and Sathyan together do a better job than what the others failed to do in the first half of the movie. Some comic scenes are well planned and executed, but at the same time there are some which make you dump your head in your hand. As always, Dhanush does his job to perfection. He extends his boy-next-door image to a higher extent in Naiyaandi, and brings out a performance which is close to natural. Nazriya looks cute, emotes well too. She can go places provided she decides to keep herself from being the kid onscreen. Sriman is the showstopper here, he comes in as a surprise package and one must say that Naiyandi picks up only after his entrance. Soori, Sathyan and the rest are fine, playing their roles to the book.
