Naduvan Movie Review

2.5 / 5.0

Naduvan is scripted and directed by Sharan Kumar. Bharath Srinivasan, Gokul Anand, Aparna Vinod, and Aruvi Bala are cast. Dharan composed the music. Yuva cranked the camera.

Plot

Karthik is a tea factory owner. He is married to Madhu. Shiva and Karthik are partners. Karthik employs Guru, his relative to help at his house and office. Karthik is a workaholic who doesn’t think much about his family. Meanwhile, Shiva develops a relationship with Madhu, and Karthik is unaware of this. Guru, who noticed this, was unable to reveal it to Karthik, as Shiva threatened him. Meanwhile, Karthik, who believes his wife and friend are truthful to him, plans to murder. Who was he planning to kill? Was Guru able to reveal the truth to Karthik? What happened to Karthik? The rest of the story deals with this.

Star Performance

Bharath has done a decent job. Gokul Anand’s performance is engaging.

Analysis

The director started the film on a different note but carried it as a standard thriller. He takes time to establish the relationship between Karthik and Madhu. The characters are correctly designed. But, if the scenes were well set and the performances had been better, the film would have become a different genre thriller. The director wanted to say that there is an unrevealed character behind every person, and they are not showing their original faces, but the masks.

What’s There?

  • Some thriller elements are good

What’s Not There?

  • The length should have been trimmed
  • BGM didn’t gel well with the script

Verdict

If the story had been told in a better way, it would have reached the audience well. However, the film is watchable once for its thriller elements.
