Naan Sirithal Review
Acting by cast
User Review( votes)
Even though Naan Sirithal has all the emotions in the mix, it still lacks depth and hence fails to impress the audience. It feels like a half cooked platter – might look colorful and delicious but one cannot enjoy it.
Movies with lead characters having some sort of disorder is becoming a trend now.
Most such movies have failed to make the most of the disorder angle and use it as the strength of the movie.
Seems Naan Sirithal falls into that category too, even though most of the movie’s story is based on the disorder.
Aadhi plays Gandhi, a easy, happy, lucky-go guy who has a pseudo bulbar (nervous laughter) disorder.
Due to his condition, he laughs uncontrollably at times when he gets emotional.
This condition lands him in lots of trouble. How he managed to get him off the mess forms the story.
As we can see, the story-line is quite simple – but has lots of scope for entertaining elements.
And that’s where the movie doesn’t manage to cope.
Gandhi’s world is happy surrounded by girlfriend Ankita and a few friends.
One fine day, one of his friends goes missing and Gandhi sets out to search for him.
Unintentionally he gets himself into a mess with two rowdy groups each headed by Dilli Babu (KS Ravikumar) and Sakkarai (Ravi Mariya).
The group of Sakkarai plots to kill Dilli Babu and Gandhi arrives in the scene.
Things get dirty and how the hero gets out of this mess forms the rest of the story.
The movie has comedy for the most part. While some of the comedy works, some just fall flat and gives us a very plain feeling.
Some scenes also get repetitive as the movie catches up.
There is a love track as usual that is so lightly written. And it doesn’t make much impact or add value to the story.
Aadhi has put his best foot forward when it comes to performance. His acting is as usual in his usual style.
Though his laughter episodes evoke us some laughs, over the time, things get boring.
And the screenplay gets lost in trying to make things look funny.
The characters are so shallow that we are unable to connect to any of them.
Even we are not so sorry or able to relate to the condition of Gandhi, the lead role.
There are some scene purely inserted for the sake of comedy, and that idea is quite a minus.
KS Ravikumar and Ravi Mariya should have been used even better.
In addition Yogi Babu is thrown into the mix just because, well, all latest comedy movies have Yogi in the cast no matter what.
His scene before climax turns out to be just OK, mainly because of his partnership with Aadhi.
Even though Naan Sirithal has all the emotions in the mix, it still lacks depth and hence fails to impress the audience.
It feels like a half cooked platter – might look colorful and delicious but one cannot enjoy it.
