Naiyaandi movie review: Dhanush holds up a run-of-the-mill rom-com

Romantic-comedies seem to be the flavour of Kollywood now and film-makers are opting for this genre more often than not. So, there’s Naiyaandi from Sargunam, who made a name with Vaagai Soodava

The presence of national award-winning actor Dhanush was the trump-card for the director. As a performer, Dhanush has come a long way since his Kadhal Kondein days and can be counted upon to deliver measured efforts.

His Bollywood foray apart, it has been a quiet year for Dhanush as his previous release Mariyan didn’t quite make waves at the box-office. He is the key factor in Naiyaandi, and he doesn’t disappoint. Sriman, who has been lying low, also steals the show, with his comic act.

The story is simple – it is about the lives of three men (Dhanush and his two brothers) who are itching to tie the knot. Dhanush (Chinna Vaandu) meets and falls in love with Vana Roja (Nazriya). As it happens, the heroine runs away from home on the day of her engagement and seeks refuge in the protagonist’s place. There is a twist when Chinna Vaandu’s brothers (Sriman and Sathyan) too eye Nazriya. How he keeps them at bay apart from taking the villain (Vamsi Krishna) out of the equation is the rest of the tale.

Sargunam, who proved his mettle in Vaagai Soodava, has turned to a lighter subject and pilots the rather weak storyline pretty well. Music by Ghibran matches the film’s mood.

The film will work, if you go without too many expectations.
