Nenjil Thunivirunthal is Suseendran’s sincere attempt after Naan Mahaan Alla and Pandiya Naadu. We could explicitly see Suseendran’s typical trend in this movie too.
Nenjil Thunivirunthal is a masala mix that comprises of action, humour, love, etc. that a typical commercial movie would have.
While there is nothing wrong with following a masala formula, the screenplay has to live up to the expectations for the formula to work. And that’s where the film falls flat.
The story too is not anything new. In fact we could see very close similarities with many other movies.
Sundeep plays the lead role of a MBA student, Kumar. Vikranth plays his friend Mahesh and Sathiga plays Kumar’s sister. The female lead is played by Mehreen whose character is pretty much wasted.
In fact the whole of the romantic track is totally unnecessary to the movie and it is added for the sake of having a romantic track to make the masala formula complete.
However it is good to see that the romantic track does not disturb the flow of the movie much as the female lead appears loosely in a very few scenes and then disappears.
Vikranth’s role as Kumar’s friend strongly reminds us of the role played by Vikranth himself in Pandiya Nadu. And, similar to a badie gang we saw in Naan Mahaan Alla, here too we can see a gang.
The first half of the film takes a lot of time to establish itself, the screenplay is very loose. The second half is better than the first half in terms of pace and the screenplay tightens a bit.
However, we are still not able to sense the depth of the problem the film tries to address – the film talks about medical industry, but that’s so diluted by the screenplay itself.
We are taken from one scene to another without a concrete connection.
Soori has to work on his comedy as his dialogue delivery and expressions seem a bit old and repetitive.
The plot of the movie is simple – the young MBA student tries to get brave and finds the killers who plan to kill his friend. Had the screenplay been a bit tighter, the movie could have been well received by the audience.
There is a twist in the second half that’s rather unconvincing and looks like a desperate attempt.
Nevertheless, the movie is a one time watch average thriller.
