Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom is a movie with comic genre that has a lace of thrill and chill all along its plot. Debutant director Balaji Tharaneetharan has directed Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom with actor Vijay Sedhupathy in the lead role, who has already garnered the reputation from the critics and audiences with his performances in movies like Pizza and Sundharapaandiyan. While the comic movies that have come in Tamil cinema industry carry a bit of illogical jokes and stuff, Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom makes it simple and real, which surely is great skill of the director.
Here is the movie’s plot. Prem (Vijay Sedhupathy) meets with a fall unfortunately on a cricket ground while playing cricket with his friends. This incident leads him to suffering from short term memory loss. However, Prem is about to marry his lover Dhanalakshmi (Gayathri) in a couple of days. And now come Prem’s three dear friends, Bags (Bagavathi Perumal), Saras (Vigneshwaran) and Bajji (Rajkumar), who decide to conceal Prem’s memory illness to his own family and to Dhanalakshmi and her family, so that the fixed marriage happens as per the schedule. Can they succeed in their attempt?
Making a comedy on screen might look like an easy task, but a small flaw in the screenplay or the plot might spoil the movie as a whole. Debutant director Balaji Tharaneetharan manages to get it all right in his movie Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom and this seems to be the first positive sign of the movie. In addition to this, his scriptwriting and characterization has a lace of simplicity and reality, which is quite unusual in a comedy flick. To his advantage, actors Vijay Sedhupathy and all three who acted in the friends’ roles have done extremely well.
The only negative thing seems to be the inefficient acting of the secondary support cast. Vijay Sedhupathy needs a special mention, as his timely delivery of dialogues makes people burst on laughter.
Overall, Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom should not be missed if you wish to have a very happy three hours this weekend!
