    Verdict - Oru Naal Iravil is a veritable remake material handled by the deft hands of editor Anthony who shines in his directorial debut.

    What happens when you are trapped with a prostitute on a one-night stand in a shuttered shop, with your residence just a stone's throw away? Sathyaraj, the protagonist is confronted with one such situation in Oru Naal Iravil and the unforeseen repercussions follow.

    Distressed by his daughter and wife's impudence, Sekar (played by Sathyaraj) boozes with his friends and gets drunk. In a whimsical thought, he finds himself attracted to a prostitute who is standing in a bus stop and decides to go for it, with some assistance from auto driver Soori (played by Varun). The incidents that follow registers a poignant story and a sincere portrayal of intricate human emotions. The familial bond is subtly explored by Joy Mathew, the writer and director of Malayalam original film Shutter. Anthony at the directorial chair stays true to the template with minor tweaks to suit the sensibilities of Tamil audiences.

    The first half moves at a superb pace with no needless scenes. Even the songs are placed to move the narrative forward. The minimal number of roles and the improbable situations contrived with earnesty make the audience commiserate and invest in the film's characters genuinely.

    The technical team needs to be lauded for the synergy they manage to bring on the table. Anthony, who also takes of editing, puts up an adroit show by keeping the running time at just 106 minutes. He is well co-ordinated by the skilful cinematography of MS Prabhu who manages to capture the various viewpoints of characters. Anthony shines in his debut effort aided by a solid team effort.
