Nachiyaar Movie Review
Incessantly making movies based on raw-rustic, ghastly violence and unconventional appearances of handsome heroes into a much phenomenal looks. More than anything, when you’re coming to theatres for a Bala movie, be prepared to embrace a tragic end in climax. With so much of pre-determined chromosomes in a filmmaker’s movie, sometimes, it’s an out of box thinking that would diminish such predictions. It all happens the same with director Bala’s release ‘Nachiyaar’. The film featuring Jyotika, GV Prakash and Evana in lead roles has producer Rockline Venkatesh performing an important character.
The story traverses through Nachiyaar IPS (Jyotika) handling a case of supposedly told sexual assault case of a minor girl (Evana), who is now pregnant. When trapped for such crime, Kaathavarayan (GV Prakash) reveals that both are in love. Things get discombobulated when Nachiyaar finds out that DNA of this newborn baby doesn’t match with Kaathavarayan.
First what’s so much appealing about the film is the basic change in Bala’s directorial style indeed. Yes, he doesn’t refrain from pulling legs of all religions and that is quite an inevitable stuff to his routine paradigm. But he has brought forth a change breaking the stereotypical pattern. There isn’t much to get on with violence factors. Except for few gruesome moments during pre-climax, which instantly reminds us off Suriya’s act in Nandha, not many scenes are bounded to such instances. The crispness that is maintained in the film’s screenplay with a running length of just 100 minutes itself is a huge attraction.
When it comes to performance, Jyotika has made a great effort to get into the skin of her characterization. One thing so much specially to be mentioned in this film is that every characterization has been offered the mix of good and bad. Say for example, in a particular scene Jyotika brutally hits a victim assuming him to be the culprit, but later when told that he is innocent, she doesn’t regret. The characterization of Rockline Venkatesh has been very realistically bounded. He is definitely yet another top actor to look out for in strong roles. GV Prakash has completely surrendered himself to the role. Unlike other Bala movie heroes, there isn’t much to strain for him, but has done a wonderful job. Evana is sure to bag the best awards for her naturalistic and brilliant performance.
If one thing has to be mentioned about musical score by Ilayaraja, he keeps the best. He knows where to score brownie points and where to underplay.
On the whole, it’s quite a refreshing experience for Bala fans, who are getting positive elements everywhere in the movie. Especially, when everyone would expect a tragic ending in the film, it’s so much elating to see a feel-good climax.
Verdict: Sluggish first half, gripping second half that get intense towards climax
