Naalo Okkadu Movie Review
It's about a man suffering from Insomnia and what happens when he gets attracted to a drug named 'Lucia' that helps his desires come true in his dreams, blurring the line in between reality and the fantasy world.
Siddharth: An actor of Siddharth's stature need to have a lot of guts to attempt a film like 'Naalo Okkadu'. He excelled in the roles of a worker in a movie theatre suffering from sleeping Disorder (reality) and an actor (dream).
Deepa Sannidhi: As a waitress in reality and a model in the dream, She performed both the roles so well and emerges as a promising talent to watch out for!
Other actors including 'Aadukalam' Naren and Ajay Rathnam have done justice to their roles.
- Novel Concept
- Siddharth's Performance
- Limited Reach
What works for 'Naalo Okkadu' is the unique concept, riveting performances and narration which goes back & forth throughout the course of the movie.
Santhosh Narayanan's songs were simply superb and his background score is in tune with the theme of the movie. Cinematography is top notch. Dialogues are well written. Editing is crisp. Production Values are adequate.
Naalo Okkadu has few short comings, but definitely worth watching once for the honest efforts put in by the whole team to offer a different experience to the movie lovers. Go for it, If you love to experience something new!
Box Office: Tamil Version ended as a below average fare at the Box Office. Can't expect a better result than it when it comes to the 'Naalo Okkadu' due to its very limited appeal and poor publicity too hurts it very badly. Yes, People complain about routine cinema! But then, Who else need to take the blame when there are no audience for different/good cinema?
Verdict: A Different Attempt!
