After being part of quite a few successful movies, Jai is back with Thirumanam Enum (Ennum) Nikkah. His last few movies starting from Engaeyum Eppothum to his recent Vadacurry have made good business at Box Office. So, his latest movie too is expected to keep the cash registers ringing. Adding to that the film is produced by Aascar Ravichandran, who is known for producing a lot of commercial hit entertainers.
Jai has teamed up with Nazriya Nazim, who is likely to bid goodbye to acting after getting married to Fahad Fazil on August 21, 2014. This movie will be her last movie in Kollywood at least for now in Tamil films. It goes without saying that Thirumanam Enum Nikkah will be a special movie in her career.
It has M Ghibran's music, Loganathan's cinematography and Kasi Vishwanath's editing. Heebah Patel, Jamal, Pandirajan, Deekshitha Manikkam, Badri Narayanan and others are in the cast. However, the combination of Jai and Nazriya Nazim is the one main factor that has attracted audience. The promotional materials and songs have added good value to the project. Now, let us see what the film has to offer.
Jai (Raghavachari) and Nazriya(Vishnu Priya) are Brahmins, who change their identities and board a train. They both have their reasons to change it. While Jai becomes Abu Bakkar to get a train ticket, Nazriya turns Ayesha for a project of her Muslim friend. A villain's entry brings them together and the plot of their love story opens up.
The initial friendship soon turns into special liking between them. But we should note that they have fell in love with fake identities and in the process they are getting to know about Muslim traditions. But like in every story, the truth should prevail and once they came to know about their real identities, the couple part ways. What happens next is the crux of the story.

Young director Anees has come up with some interesting plots and ideas in Thirumanam Enum Nikkah. He successfully projects Islam traditions on-screen. Indeed, we should appreciate his efforts to bring it so lucidly for the first time in Kollywood.
The drawback of Thirumanam Enum Nikkah is that the story execution of the plots are poor. In the sense, the writing is gone for a toss. In the first half, there is hardly anything interesting apart from Ghibran's music. But in the second half, we will get to see some engaging scenes.
Jai's performance is good and gets full marks for his performance. Nazriya Nazim is at her best. She looks very beautiful and charming in Thirumanam Enum Nikkah. Heebal Patel is okay and others are fine.
Of all technical departments, Ghibran's music stands out. It is only his soulful music that makes audience sit without much complaining. Cinematography is good but editing is poor.
Verdict: Thirumanam Enum Nikkah has a decent story but bad screenplay plays the spoilsport.
