Don’t think about it

Final word! Don’t try this movie… It’s not just for the weak hearted, but for the sensible audiences as well. Though it doesn’t stick to the ‘incest relationship’, how about the idea of having in terms of boy and foster-mom? Might be, the western audiences would receive such movies on grand reception, but this is a nauseating theme for Indian audiences, especially Tamil Nadu.

The film has a wafer thin storyline about a multiple-personality psychopath unraveling the most mysterious encounters of his life that brings various characters together.

‘Nadunisi Naaigal’ has a running length of just 2 hours, but you’ll feel like walking out of theatre by the end of first hour itself. There’s nothing much appreciative about the sound quotients as Gowtham Menon has purposely added so many effects that looks like ‘Home Surround system Demo’.

But on pars, there are few appreciative factors like the very beginning of the movie where the major characters Veera, Arjun and Sukanya are introduced through candid cameras at Sathyam Cinemas. The other sequence that needs special mention is first victim stabbed by Meenakshi Amma.

With Sameera Reddy introduced nearly to the point of intermission, she doesn’t get much scope. Veera does justice to his character and is surely inspired from loads of Hollywood acts.

‘Nadunisi Naaigal’ has little creative approach in screenplay, but when it comes to the plot and point of message, everything remains vague. A sort of interest is evoked only during the climax point with the introduction of Samantha. Looks like Gowtham Menon gives an open ending for the continuation of sequel.

But as of now, ‘Nadunisi Naaigal’ doesn’t deserve a watch.
