Chennai, Apr 12 (): Naan Sigappu Manidhan, the action blockbuster starring Vishal and Lakshmi Menon hit screens yesterday, 11 April 2014. The movie is directed by Thiru and was released under Vendhar Mbanner.
Breeze turns bizarre
Indran played by Vishal has a sleeping disorder medically termed narcolepsy. The movie overall deals with what are the limits and extremes of a narcoleptic. Irrespective of his change in mood, be it joyous or horrendous as soon as he experiences the change in state he falls asleep. Indran has his own bucket list, only it’s as mundane as walking alone on a roadside, stay awake an entire day, falling in love etc ; however given his condition these seem a feat.
Destiny makes all his dreams come true with Meera (played by Lakshmi Menon) coming into picture. She stands beside him in every step towards success. All is well until one day she’s assaulted by a gang even when Indran is beside her – only asleep! She then falls into coma and the sadhu turns vicious and traces the gang. It then leads to unexpected people which reveals trust, betrayal, love and enmity. Enjoy it in cinemas near you.
Chiti Babu: Ungalukku car le lift kuduthu, kai le gift kuduthu, vaiyuthula pulla kudutha dhan pudikum. Engala madhiri nala pasanga ellam pudikkadhu
Panam venumna ketka vendiyadhu dhane da
Nee kooda yen pondatti venum nu ketkala, nee eduthukkala?
Vishal emotes very well and makes us feel the pain of a narcoleptic. Lakshmi Menon has pared role but has done justice.
Characters simply vanish as the movie crosses first half and it revolves around a very few people involved in the conspiracy. Unnecessary gimmicks for the villain who plays the henchmen as he hardly is capable of manhandling a narcoleptic.
The second half begins with a twist, followed by another twist which yet again has another twist summing it up to one too many twists. Thiru could have seen this coming.
The movie features a brief liplock which was agreed by the duo after an eternal persuasion.
