Ranjith Kalidoss, the special cop and his assistants Joseph and Vandana are searching for a serial killer. The case starts when a packed doll with some numbers inside the box was found at the police station. While Ranjith and his team try to find out the murderer, some more murders happen. Ranjith, who suffers from a disease, gets a break from the case, as he couldn’t go out for investigation. However, the murderer leaves a clue to him, after every murder. Finally, Ranjith and the team track an old case and correlate with the latest case. Did they find the murderer or not is the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Arjun, the Action King looks stylish and young. He had performed the role brilliantly well. Suhasini and Suman had done their roles with perfection. Varalaxmi is getting good roles nowadays and the actress is using it sensibly. Prasanna makes no mistakes in acting. Sruthi Hariharan has just lived as an ideal wife. No flaws found in her acting. Vaibhav has no room to expose his talent.


Arun Vaidyanathan, the director, has worked hard for the cop thriller. The structure of the script and screenplay are appreciable. Arun has created the characters with equal importance. Hats off to his new effort!

What’s There?

  • Arjun and other stars performances are stunning
  • Brilliant cinematography and the background score
  • The film is a mixture of suspense, sentiments and mystery

What’s Not There?

  • Nothing to mention as negative as the film has what the script needs


Nibunan is a complete entertainer for the people, who love to watch mystery and suspense genre films. The film has no unnecessary things inserted and it is a family entertainer. However, people, who expect high octane fight sequences, might get a slight disappointment. Nibunan… Good movie to watch, this weekend!
