Story-;

This movie has been promoted as a comedy and we will see how much this product works as advertised. More than two hours of a runtime, an “untouched subject”, a bunch of newcomers and one or two known faces thrown into the mix – this is the formula that helped a lot of films become a hit in the past couple of years. And this movie, tries to be something like Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom: A low budget movie, four friends, a wedding and something that happens to the groom before his wedding. But does it succeed? Of course not, for it falls into an abyss right from the moment it starts, after which there is no redemption. The only positive throughout the movie is that the lead Devika Mahadevan’s performance Is the only pleasantry amidst everything that happens on screen!

Movie Review-;

Usually, a movie’s title tells us something about the film or sometimes it tells us everything. NPNVP, a whole phrase as a title – does it ring a bell? Why yes, that is the dialogue every movie or soap opera in Tamil cinema has used to justify what they do to please the “society”. What will society think of us if we do this? How will the react if we don’t do something? This is what the phrase is all about. Onto the movie then?

The film manages to achieve something that other “comedy” films rarely do: bring the audience to tears. Honestly, how much crass, stereotypic and misogynistic attempts at humour can people withstand? The film’s narrative feels very old fashioned and soap opera-ish. The premise is something we have seen before but honestly, if way more effort had been put into the script and execution, and had the casting been slightly better, this movie might have pulled a rabbit out of the hat. Alas, all we end up is with a protagonist who screams loudly for one half of the whole film. But the only thing that outdoes him is the blaring, cacophonic BGM or more appropriately “the fore-ground music”. The easily forgettable, forcibly placed duets are far too many while his dance is something Indrajith really needs to work on.12376734_1850179208541649_6283107629306262488_n

Most people will be able to sit through this movie as nothing much happens, but there are one or two funny moments that generate a few laughs. The cinematography, editing and the supporting cast’s acting are all too reminiscent of telefilms that air on lazy Sunday afternoons. After all, a movie takes a lot of time, effort and money to make, but that doesn’t justify the fact that the end product is simply underwhelming. There are many instances that show why the film ends up looking like an immature (definitely not to be confused with amateur) attempt to throw cheap gags at the audience, expecting laughter in return. For example, the director L. Madhavan resorts to fat shaming a girl for an overdrawn comedy track, manages to insult and mock the LGBT community with the “Horny feminine” male nurse and much more. The crew could have given a though about “What the people/society will speak about this film”. The director though, could learn a few things before his next film, say “How not to make a film”. The irony here is that this film is one such lesson by itself!

A very ordinary movie that you can sit through if you have no expectations at all. But if you watch it with a group of friends, you’ll definitely be entertained in your own way.
