    Watched DVD of onaayum aattukuttiyum! Well, somehow liked it. Had to watch with full concentration to follow the clever progress of the plot! Only objectionable point was the countless shootings! Of course exaggerations-cinematic and unbelievable- the way the two protogonists strain their nerves. Chandru is a good characterisation and Myshkin's too. very touching and convincing in many scenes. The thought at the end was that life is neither black or white but mostly grey!!!!!

    Naan Sigappu Manithan (2014 : Tamil : 2h40m : Thriller (Drama, Suspense)]
    Written & directed by Thiru

    Starring : Vishal, Lakshmi Menon, Jagan, Sunder Babu, Jayaprakash, Saranya, Iniya & Baddies

    Indhiran falls asleep whenever he is emotionally triggered be it fear or joy. A candid look at his life from a child to a young man shows his struggles and also his desires. Ofcoarse one of them being falling in love, and as you have guessed by now, she does come knocking. All is well, for the time being, where she is an asusual supportive half with the same old-type rich father rejecting her love. That does not stop them from seeing each, but it takes a turn on a rainy night where Indhiran's life breaks down into pieces more than the falling rain drops. What happened that night and its aftermaths are narrated in a gripping manner where the crux is how "I am a Man" gets crossed over with "I am a Red Man".

    Thiru suceeds in getting us, this time too, a freash tale filled with darkness and sorrow. Thiru has easily entered in my books as a "serious film maker". The basic plot is excellent and the major sub-plot is awesome. But sadly the Twist sub-plot falls very short and its here you can easily make out how much he struggles to link everything up. But as an audience who craves for something new to watch without any cars and humans flying, this film is quite a neat watch. Throttling the brain with too much questions about the "thises & thats" will certainly take away the fulfilment. Just watch the movie and you will certainly be rewarded to have viewed a "good movie", just as we were.

    Vishal as a narcoleptic has put the same energy in his role as he would do for action scenes. The number of times he just falls down are numerous. I think this is one of the rare films from Vishal where he does not throw annonymous baddies in air every 15 minutes. He plays quite well as a desperate young man with a problem and then, the man when the desperation turns into his only motive. He emotes quite well, this time with his voice too, thanks to Pandiyanadu. Even tailors can make mistakes, so I cannot say Saranya is 'tailor-made mom' of TFI, she is just above it if you can coin a suitable laud for her. Jagan shines, I really like him right from his Vijay TV program days. The Villans don't have much time but whenever they pop up they comfortably switch on the grinding button in our stomach.

    This is the 2nd movie in a row where I found the the BGM was really awful. GVP fans and well wishers should watch the movie before taking my comment wrongly. None of the BGM were original, not to mention none suited the suituation either. There were couple of scenes where I thought GVP is back, but he proved me wrong each time. But yet, few encounters and a foot chase sequence was quite blending, thanks to the not so original music that was playing. Songs, I just did not bother at all. The camera works were gem. The co-artists were beleivable.

    Another Victory from Vishal Film Factory

    Naan Sigappu Manithan : Disturbing but Daring

    Spoiler: 
    Pagaivanin pagayai vida nanbanin pagayae abathaanathu - Kochadaiiyaan 3D [releasing 09/MAY/2014]


    Recomended movie : Narco [French : 2004] - Don't be suprised about the hairline thefts but they all were well adapted for TFI (including a sub-plot). Not as a complain but just to inform you that there is another awesome movie around ! Couple of other movies come to my mind, just don't bother about them but try to watch Naan Sigappu Manithan in theatres near you.

    Never argue with a fool or he will drag you down to his level and beat you at it through sheer experience!

    Everything was fine till the start of the second half. Getting sick of directors trying to chalk out a twist just for the heck of it. It ends up getting all contrived and unconvincing. And to say the twist was unconvincing would be an understatement.So even if the narcolepsy aspect was dealt aesthethically, it was all for nothing. Cause the movie just ran on famliliar territory after what was probably one of the most inept flashbacks that I have seen in a while. Tragedy cause the movie was sort of good till that time.
