It’s been literally a long wait for everyone, who might have even cursed this man called ‘Gautham Vasudev Menon’. It has been a cynosure for trolls and memes, which were circulated rigorously on all Twitters and Facebook. But still, the hidden agenda was the anger they had on the filmmaker for producing quality films and still keeping it under wraps for a longer stretch. Finally, the wait is over and let’s has a quick sneak analysis on the film. 


When Raghu (Dhanush), a college student fell in love with a 19-yr old actress Lekha (Megha Akash), he didn’t know much about the future. With a four year separation and a sudden phone from her, his life takes an unexpected turn, which is not about rescuing her alone, but a chance to get reunited with his elder brother (Sasikumar), who’s a cop in Mumbai now. 


For the ones, who have been constantly watching Dhanush in rugged and blue collared roles, it’s really a significant change. He’s stylish with super cool attires and so happens to be his characterization, who can instantly refer his moments with his belle with ships in Cleopatra. It’s yet again a Midas-touch, where we are taken back to ‘Vaaranam Aayiram’, where the guy uses ‘Thunderbolt from God Father’ reference.  Megha Akash gets a beautiful costuming and is shown with an elegance, but nothing much to perform though she travels throughout the film. The real surprising showstopper is Sasikumar, who leaves you astonished with an impeccable action blocks and utterance of English lines. Senthil Veerasamy as baddie is a special attraction is very much realistic with his performance. 

Story, screenplay, dialogues and direction:

Guess what? You’ll find zillions of reference from Gautham Vasudev Menon’s erstwhile movies. But that can be regarded as ‘Director’s Cut’. If  you’re very well used to his league of movies, then this won’t be an issue, whereas for others, it might slightly test their patience. Be the screenwriting methods, where the twists and turns arrive with patience, it holds your attention intently. The dialogues mostly blended with English and of course, the nasty bad words, which gets whistles despite being muted shows up as a special highlight. 

Technical Aspects:

When it’s a GVM film, you needn’t think much about the visuals and music. They’re amazingly done and presented. Be it sound effects from the very first frame to the most captivating visuals, we are strongly held engrossed. Especially, the BGM works by Darbuka Siva are enthralling more than songs as they are 2 years old now. 

As on whole, Enai Noki Paayum Thota is a stylish action thriller that encompasses love and action. Maybe, the romantic scenes aren’t much to taste here, but the new-dimensional essence of ‘Brotherhood’ that Gautham Vasudev Menon introduces for the first time in his movies so far is commendable.
