Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom Review - Light-hearted comedy entertainerNov 30, 2012NewsNot all films based on true events are likely to impress the audience. While, some films have managed to be successful, but majority of them have miserably failed. “Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom (NKPK)”, which is supposedly based on a true story that happened in the life of one of the crewmen, is an intelligently created comedy-thriller that entertains the audience to the fullest. This film is also proof to the rise of independent filmmakers who have taken the industry by storm. This year has been very lucky for several debutant directors. Be it Ranjith of “Attakathi” or Karthik Subbaraj of “Pizza” or Balaji Tharaneetharan, director of this film.NKPK revolves around Prem, played by Vijay Sethupathi, a happy-go-lucky guy, who is all set to get hitched to his fianc\xe9e Dhanalakshmi, played by Gayathri. Since Prem believes that post marriage he would be in no position to enjoy life's smallest joys such as playing cricket, he decides to play it one last time. During the course of the game, Prem in an effort to catch a ball falls on his head. God forbid, at that moment nothing happens to him and he continues playing only to realize some time later that he has lost some portion of his memory.The impact of the fall causes Prem to forget few days of his life including his girlfriend and wedding. Upon visiting the doctor, Prem's friends come to learn that he can recover anytime and till such time decide to keep the news under wraps. What happens to Prem and will he regain memory before ties the nuptial knot forms the rest of the story.Though the makers claim that the story is based on true events, but one can still feel that the plot is the twisted version of “Hangover”. On the contrary, you wouldn't find any similar scenes in this film, but the overall presentation reminds one of these films. The film conveniently treads the comedy path with adequate amount of thrills and ensures complete attention of the audience. Most importantly, it's not the film for the class audience but for the masses and therefore you can picture the output in your head.The narrative progresses at super pace and the focus at all times is only on key characters, which helps in the overall success of the film. It's a laugh-riot from the start to finish and especially scenes in the hospital or marriage hall are a treat to watch.Vijay, after the success of Pizza, has certainly proved to be one of the rising stars a la actor Vimal. He carries his role with utmost conviction and superb wit, while the rest of the cast equally shoulder their responsibilities well. This year has certainly been lucky for several low-budgets films and NKPK is definitely one of the best films in the list. Prem Kumar's cinematography is apt, while music by Ved Shankar, a former student of A.R Rahman leaves an impression in the audience. Balaji, debutant director, played his cards brilliantly and displays commitment in his work. For Hollywood inclined audience, this film may appear clich\xe9d but on the contrary, people who come to cinemas hoping to be entertained, won't be disappointed.Rajiv Menon Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom Review - Light-hearted comedy entertainer Nov 30, 2012
