Nivin Paulys tryst with family dramas have been a happy one so far with last years Jacobinte Swargarajyam being the high point. So, naturally the expectations were high for actor-turned-director Althafs debut directorial, Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela. To his credit, Althaf doesnt once make the movie feel as its a first-timers effort as he pulls the audience in right from the first few scenes. ...Read full review
One of the best movies of the season, Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela is the perfect package for a family entertainer. The way the movie discusses a very grave subject without melodramatic scenes, tear-jerking BGMs and emotional performances is laudable.

But when one leaves the dark room, one feels happy and satisfied. Because these are films that have `theatre` moments that don`t resonate on Netflix or Amazon Prime. In that sense, Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela is a thoroughly satisfying family drama that works better as a comedy drama. ...Read full review
Nivin Pauly who has played the lazy son act in other films too comfortably becomes Kurian. Lal as the father was really good. Whoever decided to cast Ahaana and Srinda for the roles of the siblings deserves appreciation . Siju Wilson and Krishna Shankar are there in characters with screen space. Sharafudheen, Dileesh Pothan, Antony Kochi and Saiju Kurupp are there in supporting cast. Heroine Aishwarya Lakshmi doesnt have much screen space here to prove herself. The best among the lot was Shanti Krishna who played the role of the brave mother ...Read full review
