Naadodigal Movie Review
Naadodigal - Enchantingly Blissful
IndiaGlitz  [Monday, June 29, 2009]

Wanna know the best quote on friendship? 'Friends are someone who knows the heart in your song and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words'. Incisively, 'Naadodigal' centers on group of friends who polish this motif with a stunning version. Moreover, Sasi Kumar is keen on picking right scripts that revolves strongly on 'Relationships'. When 'Subramaniapuram' spelled about betrayals and pitfalls of friendship and 'Pasanga' had a much equivalent appeal alike 'Children of Heaven'. Here comes Nadodigal that ennobles the best friendships.

Sasi Kumar is brimmed with extraordinary appeal with onscreen presence. Perhaps, he has a unique charisma that carries off with audiences' likeliness. Well, Director Samuthirakani does a marvellous directorial blending an interesting script with a gripping narration.

Set at the backdrops of Rajapalayam, the film revolves around three friends; Karunakaran (Sasi Kumar), a graduate of B.A. History anticipating for a Government job, Pandi (Kalloori fame Bharani) an unsuccessful youngster overwhelming with his own dreams and Chandran (Vasanth Vijay) ready to kick-start his business. Nallamma (Ananya) is deeply in love with her cousin boy Karuna while his sister Pavithra (Abhinaya) has great likeliness for his pal Chandran. Their lives are so elated like-in paradise and they've no worries ahead. But things take a twist of turn on Karuna's friend Saravanan from Namakkal' This lad is the son of Ex-MP Sangvi who's deeply in love with the city's bigwig Palanivel Rajan daughter Prabha (Nivedha).

These friends come to the rescue mission of uniting the young couple. It's a bittersweet mission as Karuna loses his eyesight temporarily, Pandian turns to be deaf while Chandran's leg is disembodied. But they are gleeful for having extended a great aid in their nuptials. Nevertheless, they're blown out of waters when the married couple is ready for divorce' Will they spare this annoying act of Saravanan-Prabha gearing up for second marriage?

Sasi Kumar steals the show with his top-notching performance. He emotes fantastically to all situations. Let it be his relented shades or the emotional outburst in penultimate sequences; he's awesome. Much accordingly Vijay Vasanth delivers a stupendous act and Bharani steals the show. On the grounds of hilarious lines as well heart-touching moments, the actor has gone ahead in places. Anaya does justice to her role while Abhinaya has a long way to go. Ganja Karuppu deserves special mention for fantabulous comedy tracks.

Sundar C Babu's musical score goes commendable especially with the number 'Sambo Siva Sambo' presented with best appeal. Cinematography has innovative placements adding to the touch of screenplay's pace.

Director Samuthirakani starts-off with a delighting ambience later hop-skipping into a speedy tensed situation. Post-intermission, there's a complete breakdown that looks quite ungratified for masses. But scenarios are shifted with a sudden twist in penultimate sequence.

On the whole, 'Naadodigal' has the best formulas of striking jackpot and top the charts of box office in forthcoming weeks.

Verdict: Strongly Recommended. Don't Miss it

NAADODIGAL MOVIE REVIEW
Review by : Behindwoods review board
Starring: Sasikumar, Vijay, Bharani, Ananya, Niveda, Abhinaya, Shanthini, Ganja Karuppu
Direction: Samuthirakani
Music: Sundar C babu
Production: Global Infotainment Pvt Ltd
Samuthirakani's Naadodigal falls in the new genre created by the upsurge of neo-realistic films in Tamil cinema, of late, if not for a few glitches. Actually so few they are it wouldn't be surprising if you missed them along the way. Nadodigal has an uncomplicated story line, told in a very neat fashion that strikes the chord at the right place. It is straightforward, raw and touching, without going overboard on the sentiments part. There is love, betrayal and all sorts of other emotions with the main relationship in focus being friendship.

Sasikumar, Vijay, Kanja Karuppu and Bharani are friends who epitomize the kind of friendship you get to see in street corners ' who don't think even once to sacrifice their well-being for the sake of friendship. They help a friend in love to get married when the girl's parents oppose the affair - by abducting the girl from her home and marrying her off to the friend secretly at the cost of their body parts and even love. The act doesn't go well with the influential parents of the girl whose henchmen thrash the friends.

After what they have gone through to see them together, the friends are shocked to learn that the couple is after all splitting owing to differences. And most of all, the couple is not even in the least remorseful of their friends' sacrifices that has literally gone down the drain. This irks the four friends who plot to kidnap them in an effort to teach them that love is not meant to be unserious and that sacrifices of friends are meant to be valued.

If the straightforward story plays the backbone, the actors, with their natural charm and antics do the movie tonnes of good. Sasikumar is at his natural best as the infuriated friend who is equally exasperated at the frivolity with which his friend dealt his hard-earned marriage. His bush-beard look fits the role and his prodding, tiny eyes talk more than he emotes. Bharani and Kanja Karuppu keep their comic juices flowing lightening up a few moments while Vijay does a satisfactory job.

Of the women, Ananya gets the most footage and manages to squeeze in as much acting she could in whatever she is assigned. The real life speech impaired Abhinaya, who plays Sasikumar's sister, does a stunning job of lip-synching.

The other aspects, including music by the Kathala Kannala man Sundar C Babu and camerawork are strictly ok. Besides, there are few scenes that are made to fit into the story ' like the quintessential pelvic thrust number gyrated by a bombshell ' to appease the front benchers. Thankfully they are tolerable and largely excusable since they don't go overboard with their liberties.

Director Samuthirakani treats the story carefully like it's not to be overdone or laden with clichs. As a result, we get a no-nonsense presentation with very less emotional package. That's not to say the movie is emotionally barren, those scenes are treated beautifully and they appear as they happened in your friend's life; the success of story-telling.

Naadodigal is intense, yet it has its light moments. Those are best enjoyed when seen with a group of friends. And yes, don't forget to take home the message ' love is dignified, it's not child's play. Pardon us for the clich by the way.

Verdict: Take your friends along!

After the success of Subramaniapuram, Sasikumar follows it up with Nadodigal, his latest flick set in the simple premise of love and friendship, only with a different treatment. Poignant acting, sensible treatment of the plot, decent production values - thus, Nadodigal has everything that makes it click.

Trade Talk:
Optimistic initial reviews and encouraging word-of-mouth could fuel the movie's success.

Public Talk:
Seems like Sasi is on his way to create an awakening of sorts in Tamil cinema with his neo-realistic movies. A welcome one at that!
