Taut film
25 August 2014 | by sanjayppcSee all my reviews

Nalai Namadhe was the remake of the Hindi hit "Yaadon ki bharaath" & it was directed by noted director K.S Sethumadhavan.

It featured MGR in a double role. The title itself had a deeper meaning in that it was a clarion call by MGR to his supporters that the future is ours.

MGR was extremely fair but here he changes his skin complexion for the role of Sankar. The other role he plays is named Vijay. Vijay' role has noting much to do. He romances & sings & in general has a nice time.

It is in the role of Sankar that MGR excels. He hardly smiles & is serious throughout. There are many scenes where he displays his acting calibre - the anger he displays at the police station, the casual way in which he deals with the villain who misbehaves with the heroine, his interactions with nagesh when he donates money to the orphanage, his expressions on discovering his brothers & his riveting dialogues in the climax.

It is this character that holds the films & MGR delights his fans in a rather unusual role.

All the songs are excellent & the film has a tight pace throughout.

Though Nagesh does not have much scope for comedy, it is not felt much by the audience.

A riveting film, even better that the original.

It was super-hit at the time or release & one of MGR's best films.
