Nayanthara has all the time featured in movies during which sentiment performs a significant function. If in her Viswasam, starring Ajith, the ‘daughter sentiment’ was a significant factor, in Bigil, starring Vijay, the ‘women-empowerment sentiment’ was the driving pressure.

In her newest Tamil movie Netrikann, based mostly on Korean movie Blind, Nayanthara channels the ‘thambi sentiment’.

She performs Durga, a CBI officer who could be very protecting of her brother. She doesn’t need him in dangerous firm, and within the first scene of the movie, drags him out of a celebration. The brother-sister duo is heading again residence when an accident happens, throughout which Durga loses her eyesight. Will life ever be the identical once more?

It undoubtedly is not going to, as Durga tries adapting to her new regular, which includes a lovable canine named Kanna that helps her in on a regular basis actions. With the entry of the baddie (Ajmal, as a sexual pervert) and an impending Nayanthara-Ajmal face-off, Netrikann wastes little time to get into thriller mode.

Tamil cinema has bought a lot of its thrillers proper in the previous few years, and Netrikann might need simply joined that record had it caught to its weapons and never indulged in ‘sentiment’.


  • Cast: Nayanthara, Ajmal, Manikandan
  • Director: Milind Rau
  • Storyline: A CBI officer who loses her eyesight turns into an eyewitness in a case involving a sexual pervert

The prolonged chase sequences bathroom down the movie significantly – and it’s additionally a tad stunning that the makers have conveniently shot them at locations the place there’s not a single soul in sight. While Nayanthara will get quite a lot of issues proper as Durga – be careful for her depth when she breaks down for the lack of a companion – Ajmal tries his greatest to inject life into a personality that’s simply plain villainous (his flashback sequences, nonetheless, are an ordeal to sit down via).

The positives on this Milind Rau-directorial are few, however these moments do result in some pleasure. That character artistes make an affect in a famous person movie (Nayanthara is called the ‘Lady Superstar’ of Tamil cinema) is a factor to cheer: take a look at the efficiency of Manikandan as a cop determined to make an impression on his seniors. The ‘Idhuvum Kadandhu Pogum’ monitor (and its reprise ‘Sudari’ model) is a neat melody by composer Girrish Gopalakrishnan, however its positioning and existence in such a thriller is questionable. Such components bathroom down the racy thriller that Netrikann must have been.

‘Netrikann’ is at the moment streaming on Disney + Hotstar
