What’s Hot

  • Lakshmy Ramakrishnan the director deserves special praise for thinking out of the box about varied plots and some unique characterisation. All through the movie she keeps us guessing what is going to happen next. If one is going to predict, it better be good as we are in for some short and snappy sequences.
  • The story is worth the mention with some hard-hitting truth being told in a whisker! As examples, one can observe a quick dialogue, or a two minute pause by the cinematography and then a flow of emotion from the actors.
  • There are some debutantes who have done an impressive job with their acting abilities notwithstanding some good effort by the lead actors Shabeer, Pia Bajpai. Thambi Ramaiah and Bala Saravanan have added good comedy to the running time. Veterans Viji Chandrasekhar and Y Gee Mahendra have done their parts neatly.
  • The music by Madley Blues is new and a whiff of fresh air blending folk and rock. Although we don’t have much of the screen time for songs, it is good to hear them while they play.

What’s Not

  • Although the film has some good characterization, There are times when there is simply too much of parallel and concurrent plots that the audience might lose track of due to the constantly meandering nature of the screenplay.
  • For all the initial momentum that the movie builds up, the climax could have been conceived better.



Verdict Stamp

Nerungi Vaa Muthamidathe, despite the minor chinks in its armour, comes out as a movie made with enthusiasm from a director who has tried to bring in some hard hitting truth and a blend of myriad mini plots strung together that manages to keep the audience gripped and guessing.
