After K Balachander's era, Tamil cinema rarely got feel-good dramas dealing with women's lifestyle. Even if few directors attempted such female centric films, they were mostly preachy and don't become cinematic cult. Debut director Nelson's Oru Naal Koothu is not a cult classic but it's indeed a decently written feel-good drama, which has its moments.
Oru Naal Koothu actually portrayed the wedding traits in Tamil Nadu and how younger generation women are subjected to unnecessary pressure before entering the wed-lock.
Mia George comes as a traditional small town girl in the film and with her subtle expressions; she has conveyed million things which are being experienced by today's women. Rithvika, who had a brilliant debut in Madras has shined as a radio jockey in Oru Naal Koothu, there is a scene where she swiftly handles the shocking news on wedding and continues her radio program is nothing but a solid proof for her acting prowess.
Nivetha, who comes as an independent IT professional too is impressive whereas Dinesh is a complete miscast, he couldn't play urban roles especially with his monotonous body language and dialogue delivery.
Justin Prabahakaran, the composer of Oru Naal Koothu proves what a good music can do for an ordinarily written scene; he is another hero of the film.
But Oru Naal Koothu is not flawless, many scenes in the first half doesn't have the coherency and the film's moves at its own pace, which might not be liked by everyone.
