User Review( votes)
Nerkonda Paarvai is highly engaging, and does hit us with an impactful message – a message much needed for current times! Don’t miss the movie for it comes with a highly crucial message, delivered in a genuine manner.
As we all know Nerkonda Paarvai is the official Tamil remake of the Bollywood hit Pink.
And if you have watched Pink, you know what Nerkonda Paarvai is about.
The movie has a simple, strong message that is so vital for these days. “A No means No and a No is a complete sentence in itself“.
It doesn’t matter if a woman hangs out with a man late at nights, parties hard with him, drinks, smokes, and wears dresses of her choice – all these don’t mean she is “available” for sex. You still need her consent before touching her! And if she says no, that’s a no!
Nerkonda Paarvai is both a mass star’s movie and a socially relevant movie – it is quite hard to get this combo and yet feel satisfied these days.
The movie stays faithful to Pink for the most part, but not 100%.
We have three girls who have their own responsibilities – Meera, Famita and Andrea (Shraddha, Abhirami, Andrea, respectively). They decide to have fun one evening, and befriend boys who are from influential background.
The boys invite them for a drink and then dinner.
Soon the fun fest turns into a nightmare when one of the boys, Adhik, tries to molest and force himself upon Meera. As a defensive measure Meera attacks him on the head with a bottle, and he is injured severely.
The girls are on the flee. They decide to calm down and carry on with their lives, and hence loosen up with laughter only to realize that the worse is yet to come.
The boys decide to take revenge and indulge in certain acts against the girls. Ultimately, they pull the girls to the court with false accusations.
The boys have a proper lawyer Sathyamoorthy (Rangaraj Pandey) to defend them in the court (and also to offend the girls).
But the girls have no proper back up which is when Bharath Subramaniam (Ajith) comes to their rescue.
The three girls shine in their performances as helpless women. Shraddha delivers an apt performance for a helpless, yet bold woman.
She also delivers extraordinary performance in the court room scenes.
Rangaraj Pandey puts up a quite decent performance and does justice to the role.
Ajith deserves a big hats off for accepting this role! He has shed his mass hero image and has delivered what the character wants.
He has played it subtly, as the character demands – a lawyer with his own personal and medical issues.
In the court room scenes, we can see him struggling to put up with the arguments of the opposition as he has lost touch and also because he has a bipolar issue.
It is strange, yet amazing to look at a big star like Ajith playing such a helpless, non-heroic attitude and at the same time, deliver it without flaws.
But the director has made some additions to the script for Ajith’s mass image. We have a fight sequence to please Ajith’s fans – but thankfully it doesn’t disturb the script much.
The romance track with Vidhya Balan who has done a cameo doesn’t really sit well with the flow and looks forced.
Nevertheless, Nerkonda Paarvai is highly engaging, and does hit us with an impactful message – a message much needed for current times!
The movie is crisp (though the romance track could have been avoided). The screenplay keeps us curious throughout and even though most of the movie occurs either inside a house or a court room, visuals are not boring.
Hats off to Nirav Shah for making the visuals engaging! Yuvan deserves applause for adding strength to the scenes and the emotions through his music.
Don’t miss Nerkonda Paarvai for it comes with a highly crucial message, delivered in a genuine manner.
