Regardless of what a genre of subject is, the films could offer some better entertainment if narrated with engrossing moments. It has happened several times in Tamil cinema, where a film might not carry a substantial plot, but somehow would win the audiences’ hearts with amusing screenplay. Naalu Policecum Nalla Irundha Oorum comes from some famous brand names like Arulnidhi and JSK Films Corporation.
Porpandhal is a blessed village in India constantly winning ‘Best Village Award’ from the Governor and the people here are angels and saints. There has never been any crime recorded in the police list. Arulnidhi, Singam Puli, Rajkumar and Bhagavathi Perumal are four policemen enjoying their lives. But since there haven’t been cases registered here, the higher department decides to shut down the police station and transfer them to the violent land, where they believe their peace would decline. To make sure this doesn’t happen, they have their own plans of creating trouble in this village, so that their transfer orders would be cancelled. But sooner, they have something more than they bargained for.
Let’s keep it simple – JSK Films Corporation has delivered some promising movies based on entertainment and few critically acclaimed masterpieces. But this time, it turns out to be slightly disappointing. Basically, the film holds a significant plot, but the problem comes with a letdown in the form of narration. The hilarious moments created by filmmaker Sri Krishna fail to impress us anywhere. The jokes are hardly laughable and nothing seems to be surpassing here. Even the technical department involving music and cinematography is just average.
Arulnidhi is a talented actor and although his previous movies like Demonte Colony was a mediocre, his performance and choice of scripts were greatly appreciated. But what actually made him go for such a flimsy tale is something confusing. Ramya Nambeesan had substantial roles in almost all her movies, but this one is a disappointment. Singam puli appears throughout the film but doesn't get good scope to score here. Rajkumar and Bhagavathy Perumal had made a stupendous show in Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom, but they are so much feeble here.
The basic plot of this film.
What doesn’t work?
Almost everything in narrative and technical department
Overall, Naalu Policecum Nalla Irundha Oorum has a good premise and if the director had emphasized a groovy and decorous narration, it would have been a decent social-entertainer.
Verdict: Good plot, but disappointingly packaged
Rating : 3/10
