Imaikkaa Nodigal - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - "A Tale of Never Ending Twists!"

Looks like bringing uniqueness and class to her every movie has become a usual thing for the Lady Superstar. After the grand success of 'Kolamavu Kokila', Nayanthara strikes once again with Imaikkaa Nodigal, a thriller film written and directed by the innovative R. Ajay Gnanmuthu. 

The potboiler can be interpreted as a brutal cat and mouse game between a CBI Officer Anjali (Nayanthara) and a psycho serial killer on the loose, Rudra (Anurag Kashyap) where each character is introduced with a sound backstory and is given adequate prominence throughout, including the most expected cameo of Vijay Sethupathi.

But, the best part of the film was the Oscar-worthy acting by Anurag Kashyap. With each scene, he fascinates the audience with his dark dialogues and creepy smile, diverting our attention from Nayan, Atharva and the story itself. In parallel, Arjun; Anjali's brother (Atharva) and Kritika (Rashi Khanna) were introduced through an innocent love story only to be connected to the main plot in the second half of the movie.

Hip-Hop Tamizha sets the most required mood through his incredible music and background scores whereas RD Rajshekhar captures all the scenes with the perfect lights and angles, especially Anurag's scenes making the entire movie much more marvellous. Atharva is a very talented actor which is asserted through his well-presented performance here as well, but,  altogether sets an intriguing career path in acting for Anurag Kashyap.

If there is something you don't wanna miss from August, its definitely Imaikka Nodigal. No tall talk necessary.

My Rating - 4/5 | Grade - A (The Best One Around!)
