Nadunisi Naaygal - Gautham gets his Ted Bundy wrong this time

Nadunisi Naaygal proves Gautham movies are like assorted sweets you get from a B Grade sweet shop. Looks attractive, trying to conjure too many things into one packet, the end product is unhygienic and lacks taste.


Nadunisi Naaygal proves Gautham movies are like Sarvana Bhavan meals. Less content/quantity and more pricey, at the end you have an unsatisfactory feeling.

Nadunisi Naaygal proves Gautham movies are like Dairy Milk Temptations. Candy floss at first sight but candy-flaws on dissection.
By now, audiences are aware of pluses and minuses of this movie - Sameera, Veera, Cinematography, Sound etc.



Enough said, what could have worked for this movie?
  • Gautham, its time you rethink your screen writing. Your movies have interesting scenes and moments, but your movie as a whole seems like you have 10-12 scenes running in your mind, and trying to put it together without a proper screenplay. Its like a designer who have attractive beads of different colors, crafting them onto a thread, lacking a proper idea of designing

  • You have a Psycho and trying to tell the story from his POV. But his story is neither gripping nor hard hitting. Your Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu worked because the story moves in the investigator's eye and the audience were able to connect to it. Who want to fill into a psycho's shoes? Not all are sexually abused or raping/murdering girls :P So you got yourself out in hit-wicket fashion. It failed to hold our interest.

  • Why in the world all psychos have a flashback in childhood stage. Cant the writers shift this to their adolescent stage? An Orgy/Pedophile father does sound new, but again the episodes have amateurish writing so you don't feel pity for the protagonist and the further unfoldings  when you unravel from a molested kid's mind.

  • And the biggest drawback, Veera lacks the charm of a psychopath. You loved Ted Bundy, You admired Hannibal Lecter, but there is something missing in Veera. I can attribute this to poor characterization too..



Just because something is bold, daring, new attempt, out of box thinking, stylish there is no rule that it has to be appreciated. All the best Gautham for your next venture :)

true Karthik... generally I am not a big fan of Gautham films but he is one director who try to take tamil cinema to different level atleast in technical terms...

here we can't connect or sympathize for the protagonist which is the main drawback.. failed miserably...
