Just two weeks after the comedy caper Kolamaavu Kokila, Nayanthara is back with a bang in a straight contrast crime thriller Imaikka Nodigal, directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu.
The movie, which runs for close to three hours, is based on an intelligent script and it is aptly backed by solid performances by the lead actors- Nayanthara, Atharvaa and Anurag Kashyap.
Nayanthara shows varied emotions well and this is one of her best performances till date. Atharvaa is right fit for the role, while the scene stealer is Anurag Kashyap. The Bollywood director, in his Kollywood entry, simply sends shiver down the spines of the audience.
R D Rajasekar’s cinematography is one of the biggest plus points of Imaikka Nodigal, while HipHop Tamizha Aadhi’s musical score gels well with the script.
With many intriguing sub-plots and racy twists and turns, Imaikka Nodigal stands different as a thriller. But length and songs at unwanted intervals mar the flow. If the film gets trimmed, it would become a great product.
