Verdict: A film that will make you fall off your seats with laughter.
Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren has two of the most promising talents in the Tamil movie industry one of whom is the versatile actor Vijay Sethupathi, who quickly rose to fame because of his unconventional and memorable performances. Accompanying him is Gautham Karthik, who has a flair for cheeky comedy. In the music department, Justin Prabhakaran has done an outstanding job by giving us some of his best work in this film. The director Armugakumar has seamlessly woven these three talents along with the rest of the cast to produce a comedic masterpiece.
What’s Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren About:
The plot of the film revolves around Yaman (Vijay Sethupathi), the head of a notorious tribal group and a gang of thieves in Andhra Pradesh, who has sworn a sacred vow to marry his sister’s daughter Sowmiya (Niharika Konidela), who has fled the infamous village with her family and has settled in Chennai. Years go by and Sowmiya is now a college student in Chennai where she meets Harish (Gautham Karthik) and Satish (Daniel Annie Pope). Sowmiya eventually develops a love interest towards Harish, which is yet another obstacle for Yaman. Shackled by his vows, Yaman is forced to kidnap Sowmiya and marry her, but a perplexed college boy, whom the girl has a soft corner for, stands in the way. Will Sowmiya escape Yaman’s hold or will she be forced into marrying him?
Vijay Sethupathi has done an outstanding role in this film where he is shown in eight different avatars and nails every one of them. The hilarious duo of Harish and Satish do justice to the silly yet neatly written storyline and keeps the audience glued to the screen. This film combines the quirks of the unusual ancient tribal customs with the "silliness" of the present culture.
What could have been better:
Although the film has a lot of well-written jokes and a cast of witty comedians, the screenplay is a tried-and-tested formula.
Why you should watch:
Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren is an amusing film with a grand performance by the one and only Vijay Sethupathi along with the humorous yet charming Gautham Karthik and the rest of the cast make this undoubtedly one of the best comedy films of this year by far. If you are on the lookout for a hilarious movie this weekend, Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren is the one for you. Go ahead and book your tickets, you will not be disappointed!
