Has anyone watched Sila Nerangalil??
I watched it today and had enjoyed it really. Story on rebirth. First half hour was bit slowy. But later story got really well. Acted by Vincent Asoka, Navya Nair, Vineeth, Sriman, Raghuvaran. This movie plays hide and seek with good logics.
Im bad at writing review so posting one here from Behindwoods.com.
Rebirth, an avaricious and vengeful relative who would kill for money, an apprehensive protagonist who thinks his wife is cheating on him, and a murder mystery. That pretty much sums up the national award winning Malayalam director Jayaraj?s Tamil debut Sila Nerangalil, a part period, part contemporary thriller. The movie?s attempt ? a desperate one at that ? to be different is glaringly evident in every frame. Clever in parts and lame in some, Sila Nerangalil plays hide and seek with logic and evokes a deja vu feeling of the late 80s Tamil cinema.
Vincent Asokan and Navya are a happily married millionaire couple living in the 60s. Navya?s fondness towards Asokan?s singer friend Vineeth wreaks havoc in their love life. A vicious Fatima Babu, Asokan?s sister who has an eye for his money, sets them up and Asokan falls prey for Navya?s murder and eventually gets a death sentence.
Cut to the present, Navya ? no price for guessing, she is reincarnated again ? is in rehabilitation owing to depression following the aftershock of Tsunami. Asokan ? the reincarnated ? is a psychiatrist and treats her back to good health, in order to have her reunited with her family, Asokan?s advertisement in the newspapers catches the attention of Raghuvaran ? yet another psychiatric consultant. Enter Raghuvaran and his hypnotic tricks, which enable Asokan and Navya to discover they were a couple in their previous birth. Hypnosis also reveals many more such shocking secrets.
Vincent Asokan plays the role of a loving husband who transforms into a doubting Thomas to flawless perfection, especially in those scenes showing this transition. Navya?s role of looking good pays off well in her 60s-styled role where she seems to totally belong, but loses luster in her more contemporary look. Raghuvaran?s character loses dignity the moment he reads Navya?s mind to the extent of discovering her previous birth. Vineeth is admirable, while Fatima Babu as the vicious vixen comes across as exactly that.
