Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren Review

Star Cast : Vijay Sethupathi, Gautham Karthik, Niharika, Gayathri
Director : Arumugakumar

Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren is packaged as an unadulterated black comedy from debutant director Arumugakumar, who does not compromise on anything just for the commercial viability of his project. To be honest, audiences who are familiar with this genre may enjoy the film but for others the humour and inspiring moments are few and far between in the wacky script.

Yeman (Vijay Sethupathi) is a tribal leader who comes to the city as a robber along with friends Purushothaman (Ramesh Thilak) and Narasimhan (Rajkumar). But he ends up kidnapping his young niece Sowmya (Niharika Konidela) whom he has sworn to marry about 14 years back!!! Harish (Gautham Karthik), is a happy-go-lucky urban youth who has a soft corner for Sowmya and he comes all the way to the tribal village Yemasingapuram to get back his ladylove.

Right from word go,  ONNPS stays true to its genre and all the characters are eccentric so audiences need time to settle down and start enjoying the film. It has all the ingredients for a dark comedy, yet shaken and stirred they blend like oil and water. Director Arumugakumar flounders as the comedy has not been worked out well after setting up a delicious premise.

Vijay Sethupathi has that all-important screen presence and he tries to impress us with his unique dressing, head gear and lots of gold jewellery. But as an actor he is underutilized here. Newcomer Niharika fits the bill and her lip sync is flawless. Daniel Annie Pope is annoying while Gautham Karthik, Ramesh Tilak and Rajkumar are ok. Gayathrie has nothing much to do.

Technically, Sree Saravanan provides colorful and dark visuals to suit the backdrop of the story and the production design in the tribal village is commendable. Overall, Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren is a film that never takes itself too seriously, so if you like the genre, go watch it.
