Movie Title

Trisha Illana Nayanthara


Adhik Ravichandran

Star Cast

GV Prakash Kumar, Anandhi, Manisha, VTV Ganesh

First things first! GV Prakash’s Trisha Illana Nayanthara is packed with crude humor and made with the intention to shock you. 

It is bold from the word go and falls into adult comedy genre, something rare in Tamil cinema. Definitely not for the audience who prefer template movies with textbook screenplay and characters. But if you are the one who loves a wide ride with ‘A’ jokes, double meaning dialogues and misogynistic theme, debutant director Aadhik Ravichandran is bang on!

Jeeva’s (GV Prakash Kumar) life all about two things- booze and women. Apparently our protagonist grows up along with two girls, Ramya (Anandhi) and Aditi (Manisha Yadav). Interestingly, all the three were born on the same day in the same hospital, same time.

As Jeeva reaches adolescent age, he falls in love with Ramya at school and she too has a soft corner (or lust?) for him. But unfortunately, they separate as Jeeva opens up to his friend about his sexual escapades to his close friend which eventually spreads like a wildfire in the school campus.

Soon after Ramya ditches him, Jeeva and Aditi come close but being a male chauvinistic at heart, the former can’t accept his girlfriend boozing regularly and once again our "virgin" hero gets dumped. Jeeva heads to Kumbakonam to stay with his uncle (VTV Ganesh) who runs a bar. The rest of the film tells us whether Ramya who is in Kumbakonam and Jeeva get reunited or not!

The film is filled with anti-women dialogues and so it’s quite obvious that guys would have good fun but it would have been really great, if the director had an inventive story. The second half rather moves at a snail pace with nothing much happening. Wonder why an actress of Simran's calibre agreed to do the role of an aunty? Arya and Priya Anand's cameo in the climax falls flat.

GV Prakash Kumar fits perfectly into the role of Jeeva but has to improve in dance and dialogue delivery!  Anandhi looks cute and might go places if she picks the right scripts. Manisha Yadav has been used for oomph factor and she has exactly done what her character demands. VTV Ganesh, who comes as GV Prakash’s uncle provides occasional laughter.

Cinematography by Richard M Nathan is quite good for the rom-com while GV Prakash’s songs are peppy- Mutham Kodutha Maayakari and Bittu Padam Di has the theatre dancing. To conclude, Trisha Illana Nayanthara is Uninhibited and naughty which has enough frenzied moments to keep the youth audiences in splits but families keep away!

Verdict: Average
