The theme is very simple and director Viswas Sundar's handling of the subject of the film is average - so our review of Ninaithale shows. Ninaithale is the remake of Telugu hit Anand.
Rupa (played by Nargis) loses all her family members in a car accident and since the accident is living alone for 12 years with her neighbours supporting her. She has a good job that gives her a good salary. Soon enough, she falls in love with one of her colleagues Rahul (played by Sarfraaz). As time passes by, she decides to marry him. Both of them start making arrangements for their wedding
One of the guests at the wedding is Anand (aka Sucin), who has just come from the US. He is forced to attend the wedding of Rahul and Rupa by his mother. By nature, he is a good-hearted man. At the wedding when he meets Rupa, he falls in love with her. To his luck, the wedding gets cancelled - a fact which makes him very happy.
In order to cash in on the situation, he tries to catch her attention and make her his. After many attempts he finally succeeds. All the while, he has no clue that it is his own father, as a result of whose efforts the wedding got cancelled. After he gets to know of this, he gets very angry and he turns his heart against his father. Rupa too gets angry and she too turns against his father. By the end of the film, everybody gets reconciled with each other including Rupa and Anand.
The film opens with the car accident in which Rupa's parents are killed due to carelessness of a drunken driver. After this scene, there are no sudden twists and turns in the storyline. The rest of the movie is but the smooth sailing of the script made the film meaningful and watch worthy.
Yesteryear actress Vyjayanthimala's son Suchindra Bali in played his role well. In this film, he has proven to be a good actor. New actress Nargis shines in her performance oriented role in the film. The only thing displeasing about her is her fashion, style and mannerisms. Yet another hero of the film playing the role of Anand's friend is Krishna. He makes the entire film, a laughable one. Krishna and the other actors in the film, Santoshi, have acted well.
Two songs are passable (Music is by Vijay Antony). The camera work done by Madhi is also good
