SYNOPSIS
Selvam, a peace-loving photographer, who owns a studio in a small town, lives a happy life catering to the clientele who come to click passport sized photographs. All goes well for Selvam until one day he gets beaten up by a local ruffian. Humiliated, and battered by the incident, Selvam turns vengeful and vows not to wear any footwear until he gets his hand on his bully.

Dileesh Pothan`s Malayalam film Maheshinte Pathikaram, which has now been remade as Nimir, was about a man and his thirst for revenge, and if that plot makes you imagine a tense thriller, you would be far off the mark. For, it was a low-key feel-good tale about a man and his revenge. On the other hand, there is hardly anything to feel good about Nimir, which comes across as a rather flavourless, uninvolving tale. ...Read full review
Nimir starts off with a different black and white tone and the very first spark comes from its visual beauty. The movie has a lot of naturistic shots and a lot of these are used as a tool by the director to take the story forward. This makes none of the proceedings unwanted and adds up as a major positive. ...Read full review
Veteran director Priyadarshan has attempted to "Tamilicize" the sleeper hit Malayalam film `Maheshinte Prathikaram` with Udayanidhi Stalin replacing the formidable Fahadh Fazil as the lead. Whether this non pretentious rural saga would inspire the Tamil audiences remains to be seen. ...Read full review
Nimir is about a naive photographer named National Selvam, who gets into a street brawl. He is beaten up badly in front of his people. The shame turns him into a revenge-seeking man. Now, this is a storyline that cleverly tricks us into believing that we`re about to witness a revenge saga. ...Read full review
Priyadarshans Nimir is undoubtedly Udhayanidhi Stalins best work after Manithan. Incidentally, both these films are remakes and are no match for the original. As much as Udhay makes these films his own, chipping in the kind of performance thats very unlike him, one cant help feeling let down because of the lack of overall impact. ...Read full review
Priyadarshans Nimir, starring Udhayanidhi Stalin in the lead, is set against the backdrop of enchanting Tenkasi, into which cinematographer N.K Ekambaram breathes life with his frames, and his visuals are a treat to the eyes. Priyadarshan, thanks to his years of experiences, makes the best use of the visuals and makes the viewing experience something to remember for a while. ...Read full review
The first few scenes of Maheshinte Prathikaram and Nimir are the same on paper. We are introduced to a pair of fairly used slippers that are being cleaned meticulously. While Mahesh (Fahadh Faasil who plays the lead in the original) just places it on the banks, a cinematic moment is created around Udhaynidhi. Selvam (Udhay) lifts the pair of slippers high above his head like a trophy in a gesture that feels close to triumph. ...Read full review
With each film, Udhayanidhi Stalin is making himself more and more qualified to provide advice to actors on how to pick scripts to suit their strengths. Fascinatingly enough, on first glance, its hard to say what Udhayanidhis strengths truly are. ...Read full review
