Friday 26 June 2015
Debutant director Ravikumar has made an engaging film which is cleverly written and is a wonderfully executed time travel fantasy thriller.
Ilango(Vishnu Vishal) is a carefree youngster who doesn't have a job but has a beautiful, rich girlfriend Anu (Miya George). Anu takes him to her dad (Jayapraksh) who insults him and on the same, he boozes along with his astrologer friend Puli (Karunakaran). They meet with a freak accident where they are introduced to a scientist Parthasarathy(TM Karthik).
Suddenly a time machine pops up in front of the three; and together they decide to use it for their personal benefits. However, a particular incident changes their life and they are put in a piquant situation. Now it's time for the youngsters to solve the mystery and save their lives.
Indru Netru Naalai sucks you into its world with well-etched characters, beautiful cinematography, perfectly detailed production design, and a host of fine actors – including Vishnu Vishal, Karunakaran, Jayaprakash, Miya among others. Performance wise, Vishnu Vishal has played his part well and looks energetic than his previous movies.
Karunakaran is in top form and his one liners evoke constant laughter. Heroine Mia George looks cute and bubbly and has a charming chemistry with the hero. TM Karthik, Jayaprakash, baddie Ravishankar and others have done their job to sheer perfection.
Director Ravikumar's screenplay is just flawless; the complex concept of time travel is executed in a simple fashion with interesting situation which is the major strength of the movie. Also, the magic of time travel is clearly witnessed through the scenes and not just through dialogues which is something new to Tamil cinema that concept can be followed by classes and masses.
Technically, the VFX work by Phantom is very impressive while the cinematography by Vasanth is crystal clear that the film doesn't look like a small-budget film.
Though the technical team and artists have put in their mammoth effort, we should also appreciate the film’s producer CV Kumar who is continuously investing in new age cinema and every penny spent in the film is clearly visible.
Overall, Indru Netru Naalai is a charming fantasy thriller that you really shouldn't miss. Give it a chance and prepare to be entertained thoroughly.
