Star Performance

Nayanthara has played the CBI officer role and she pulled it easily as usual. Atharvaa had also done his role well and his action and emotional sequences are also good. Raashi has done what is needed for her role. Vijay Sethupathi has once again proved that he could do any role and leave some impression behind his performance.

Analysis

Ajay Gnanamuthu has brought a good psychological thriller movie and this is not the usual psychological thrillers we had seen before. We should definitely appreciate Ajay for bringing in some unexpected twists and turns, which we could not even have guessed. Ajay didn't waste any time in introducing the hero, heroine and villain. He just gets into the story straight away. And we could notice that there are no explanation scenes. Music composition by Hiphop Tamizha is excellent. Some scenes between Atharvaa and Rashi should have been minimized, so as to minimize the runtime and this would have made the movie more crispy.

What's There?

  • Excellent script screenplay and direction
  • Performances of the stars
  • Cinematography and the music is perfect

What's Not There?

  • The film’s length should have been reduced with editing Atharvaa and Raashi scenes

Verdict

Imaikkaa Nodigal is a complete psychological thriller, which doesn't allow us to guess anything. This shows the perfection in direction. Yet another success for Nayanthara, this year! Go watch the film in theatres and you will never be disappointed!
