INDRU NETRU NAALAI Movie Review

For both producer CV Kumar and director Ravikumar, it takes a lot of guts to touch such a fantasy genre which has been done so many times in Hollywood. The director has done a great job in translating it to Tamil, making it easier it understand except for the high dose of drama in some scenes.

Quick Glance

What's great?

  • • Vishnu Vishal's easy performance

  • • Karunakaran who's comical timing is amazing

  • • Mia George who's not a mere doll but could act

  • • The storyline is the king in the movie for being so different yet relatable

What's not?
  • • Too much of drama and sentiment in some scenes

  • • Feels bit lengthy

When two friends who are out of luck find a time machine along with a mad scientist, they try to use it and make money until things go wrong because they did some mistakes creating a ripple in the timeline.

The Cast

Vishnu Vishal is at ease in his role and does fit the character so perfectly. Equally good is Karunakaran. Mia George does look good, has a decent role to play and also is part of the story rather than being out of it. Jayaprakash and the main villain are added advantages.

The Team

Director Ravikumar has touched a genre for the first time in Tamil cinema and tried to not make it huge which might confuse some audience. He has kept it close to real life and the characters do what any common man would do. The first half is exciting while the second travels into a twist of events. Excluding songs is a relief but if they could have kept the length and some predictable scenes out of the box, it would have been simply perfect.

Bottom line – A noteworthy entry into fantasy genre with good story and comedy.

Certified Fresh – Yes!
