Don't miss this time machine
6 July 2015 | by urztrulysoorajSee all my reviews

Indru Netru Naalai(2015) Well, fiction blended with fun is always a great watch if crafted well, and Indru Netru Naalai is a local science fiction aptly mixed with fun and emotions. The plot taken here is 'time travel', an interesting, yet less explored theme on Indian screen. The movie has a time machine from the future, which accidentally falls onto the hands of two youngsters, who are trying to make fortune. We have seen movies like Interstellar or Looper which have projections from some certain point of time, making differences in some other point of time. The same kinda approach is adopted by director Ravi Kumar here, but he takes three pillars of comedy and a pillar of emotion to make the movie stand and that makes, Indru Netru Naalai an engaging watch. The director proves his mastery in the start itself, when Pulivetti writes his astrology exam in parallel with the life of Elango, and that scene just lighted the fuse to a string of comedies. He made the movie as simple as possible, without offering any complex stuff, the initial conversation between two scientists, funny yet simple explanation about time travel by that semi-mad scientist, everything made the plot simpler. While the genuine wits in initial half make one laugh to death, the interval block hooks thrill factor, continued by a fully engaging second half. Though, 'all-will-end-good' hope lessens the thrill factor, there was a curiosity about how they are going to end all these, and Ravi Kumar has succeeded in offering that ending, which closes loops, with small exception.

Coming to the performances, Kaunakaran just rocked all the way though he had that usual side-kick role, his comedy timing was simply superb, there was a great chemistry between him and the protagonist, Vishnu Vishal, who too equally impresses, mainly at the emotional scenes. While Mia George does decent job, Jayaprakash has a role made for him. Ravi Shankar's bad ass rowdy was perfect, and TM Karthik's Giridhara Parthasarathy was funnily awesome. A Vasanth's frames were of good quality and Leo Paul's cuts were crisp. Music by Hip Hop Tamizha lies as one of the major highlights of this movie, that theme music is simply addictive; back ground scores were of superior quality.

Overall, Indru Netru Naalai is an entertaining sci-fi which keeps us engaging from the start to end. 'Lag' doesn't even come around its surroundings; A movie that will be enjoyed for its novelty in plot, decent wits and clever scripting.

Final Word: Excellent
