Though Sarkunam’s claim to fame was Kalavani, his critically acclaimed Vaagai Sooda Vaa proved that he is a layered and nuanced filmmaker. With Naiyaandi though, he is tracing his roots back to comedy with Dhanush and Nazriya in the lead. Here is why you shouldn’t miss Naiyaandi.
. There is Dhanush. If that’s not enough, there’s Dhanush in a comic avatar after a long, long time. We all know how sparkling he can get in comedy. It might do him some good after all those intense roles (read Raanjhanaa, Maryan). And us too.
. And then there is Sarkunam – with two well received movies (one commercially and another one critically), this could well be his hat-trick if it worked out.
. You have seen her and loved her in Raja Rani. Nazriya is back and she is in a full-fledged lead role in Naiyaandi. What with her huge fan following online, she is turning out to be a social media super star.
. There is the emerging comedy favorite – Soori. He might not be Tamil cinema’s answer to Santhanam but he is good nevertheless.
. There is good music by Ghibran and the Teddy Bear song refuses to get out of our heads. We think songs are going to be a highlight of the movie.
. Lastly, the exciting trailer seems to be doing its rounds in the internet and is quite a hit. Only a preamble of what is to come.
