Yeman (Vijay Sethupathi) is the leader of a tribal village. Along with his aides Purushothaman (Ramesh Tilak) and Narasimhan (Rajkumar), he comes to the city.
His aim is to kidnap Sowmya (Niharika Konidala), his niece, who is studying in a city college. For, he had vowed many years back to marry her.
As he and his accomplices kidnap here, Harish (Gautham Karthik), a happy-go-lucky youth and collegemate of Sowmya, follows them to rescue her, as he has a soft corner for her.
The rest is all about whether Yeman is able to achieve his ‘mission’, what is the reason behind the vow and whether Harish is able to ‘save’ his friend.
As promised, director Arumugakumar has come up with a different attempt at comedy genre. He has delivered a good researched and nicely designed tribal setup.
But things work only to an extent, as not many might understand the black comedy. Also, after setting a promising premise, the script weakens as the film progresses.
But the movie can be an enjoyable ride for those who like such genres and quickly get the drift. Vijay Sethupathi, as usual, rocks with a stunning performance and has tried different costumes.
Gautham Karthik fits well to the bill as bubbly youth, while Niharika is a welcome find. Gayathri has got nothing much to do, but has delivered goods in whatever scope is available to her.
Sree Saravanan’s cinematography suits the mood of the movie with dark visuals. Justin Prabhkaran’s music is okay. On the whole, if you are ready to not take this film seriously, you can enjoy ONNPS.
