If Ninaithu Ninaithu Parthen is a test for debuntant director Manikandan, then one can say he has written that from the lessons learnt from his mentor Selvaraghavan. In many places, the film reminds us those of Selva’s. However, Manikandan deserves kudos for trying something out of the box and deviating audience from run-of-the-mill kind stories.
The story is about Adhi (Vikranth), a film institute student and Farhand (Aashitha), a Pakistani girl who aspires to take the course in the same institute. With the both falling in love with each other, a group of students led by their guru (Raj Kapoor), an ardent follower of Hinduism opposes the entry of Farhana into the institute. Meanwhile, Farhana’s father comes to India and attacks Adhi after knowing the story so far. Following this, Farhana commits suicide and Adhi becomes mentally deranged. What’s next is an unusual climax which is new to Kollywood to an extent.
Though the film is about communal disharmony between India and Pakistan, it neither deals with terrorism, nor with bombs. But the movie speaks about the human element and the need for peace and harmony between the two nations.
Vikranth shows improvement in Ninaithu Ninaithu Parthen and has given a subtle performance. Being a new face, heroine Aashitha, the Kashmiri girl, looks ravishingly beautiful. She is an apt choice for the role. On the flip side, the film moves at a snail’s pace in some places. Joshua Sridhar’s music and Madhu Ambat’s cinematography lends enough support for the love story.
