Arul Nidhi has been slowly climbing towards the best career graph and his previous release ‘Demonte Colony’ was a good illustration. The film ‘Naalu Policecum Nalla Irundha Oorum’ was supposed to get released earlier and now has its release. The film is directed by Sri Krishna with Arul Nidhi, Ramya Nambeesan, Rajkumar, Bhagavathy Perumal and Singam Puli in lead roles.
The film is about a village that has never seen a single crime and people are living a good life there. The police station has been a holiday home, where these police men – Arul Nidhi, Bhagavathy Perumal, Rajkumar and Singam Puli have their ultimate enjoyment there. But sooner as the higher officials decide to shut down this police station due to the peace and harmony, transferring them to Ramanthapuram, a land of ultimate violence, these cops decides something unconventional that changes the entire lives of village forever.
On the performance level, Arulnidhi is little disappointing for his previous movies had garnered him some good praises, but this one is a letdown as it doesn’t offer him any space to dominate or establish his realms. On the other end, Ramya Nambeesan had made a scintillating performance in movies like ‘Pizza’ and here she is merely a doll. It’s confusing to see their mediocre romance portions mixed with this vague screenplay. The others in the cast like Rajkumar, Bhagavathy Perumal and Singam Puli are talented actors, but they are not given their scope to perform here.
Musically, there is nothing that will carry your attention and cinematography looks gaudy in places.
When it takes nearly the complete first half (almost the story starts off by the point of intermission) and we are pinned with some hopes that the second half might offer something new and interesting with the screenplay. But at the end of the moment, it’s yet again more of disappointments as the filmmaker fails to carry forth an engaging screenplay.
On the whole, Naalu Policecum Nalla Irundha Oorum doesn’t manage to keep us interested in the show and by the time, the intermission arrives, we are tested with our patience and there is nothing special we get here.
Verdict: Not an engaging drama
