Nenjam Marapathillai movie review


Ramsay (S J Suryah) starts running a business succesfuly after working for a long time. He gets married to his boss’ daughter Swetha (Nandita Swetha) and acts being an obedient husband.

Things take a turn when Mariam (Regina Cassandra) enters their life as the baby sister of their boy.

Suryah starts lusting for her and tries all means to get to her but in the process kills her. What happens next forms the rest of the story.


The story is your template horror movie plot, however what stands out is the way in which it is executed with Selvaraghavan’s touch.

He manages to maintain the energy of the film throughout its running time.  It has the director’s stamp all over it.

S J Suryah steals the show with a deadly performance. No wonder he had pinned so much hopes on the character. Both Nandita and Regina have well written characters and good scope for acting as well.

Songs and BGM are top class from Yuvan Shankar Raja and the Yuvan-Selva combo has worked out big time again. Cinematographer Arvind Krishna has given a visual treat which suits well to the mood of the movie. If you are ready to sit through the patient-testing climax and CG work, Nenjam Marapathillai will stick to your heart.
