Oru Naal Iravil: Film Review – A Simple Yet Striking Thriller

 Verdict: A well-made remake that leaves an impact

Sometimes, simple films without star power and good performances impress us the most. One such film is Oru Naal Iravil. A remake of the hit Malayalam film Shutter (remade in Marathi too), Oru Naal Iravil marks the directorial debut of popular editor, Anthony. This film shows the bond between two strangers and interwines a story between them. Riding high on emotions, the film perfectly captures the relationship with sensitivity.
One of the biggest strengths of the film is its well-written story coupled with a solid screenplay. Writer Joy Mathew‘s (director of Shutter) script not only keeps the audience hooked, but also gives them a clear insight on morality. The director captures values like faith, truth and honesty accurately.  
Sathyaraj steals the show with his performance, without overshadowing other artists. His portrayal as the short-tempered Sekar, may have seemed cliched initially but his character is sketched out perfectly as the movie progresses. Sathyaraj shows why he’s a seasoned artist. Anumol (Thangam) too puts up a bold performance while Yugi Sethu (Sethu Barathi) (who is also the dialogue writer) also delivers a subtle yet noteworthy act. 
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
A film like this will make you value human emotions and make you think twice before being judgmental. The dose of melodrama is a tad high but it’s worth it. The cinematography is also superb. Although a remake, this film reflects the confidence of director Anthony, making it a strong debut for him.
