Naan Sigappu Manithan Review


Naan Sigappu Manithan is the story of Indran [Vishal], a guy who has 10 must do dreams noted down in his personal dairy, which are been fulfilled by his mother [Saranya Ponvannan] one by one. A flashback follows describing Indran as a Narcolepsy [a chronic neurological disorder caused by the brain's inability] patient and its effects. Meanwhile, Indran comes across Meera, daughter of a rich man Jayaprakash, who opposes their love being known about Indran's health problem. By the time Indran's wish-list comes to an end with the last one remaining, an unexpected twist brings all the change. Jagan and Sundar Ramu are Indran's close friends, who helps him in the after affects. How Indran takes revenge on Meera's rapists being a narcoleptic sufferer forms the crux of NSM...


Vishal has delivered one of the noted performances in his career. The tall hunk who is known for his action hero roles, proved his mettle in the character of a Narcoleptic patient.

Lakshmi Menon looks cheeky in her new look and her costumes needs a special mention. She looks slim and trim and her emotional act in the interval scene is appreciable.

Iniya has done her parts well; though limited she creates an impact in audience hearts. Jegan's comedy and timing are laudable and brings instant laughs.

Saranya Ponvannan, Jayaprakash, Sunder Ramu and others are at regular best.

Technical Analysis:

An untouched story line with a highly engaging screenplay is the one that audiences look for and director Thiru has come up with one such film. Naan Sigappu Manithan is perfect in that aspect, apart from few dialogues and dragging second half.

GV Prakash Kumar's music is good and his background scores just go along the narration. 'Yelelo song is visually high too.

Richard M Nathan's cinematography takes NSM to the next level and he has to be tapped for his usage of camera in different angles, especially the stunt sequences are well captured. Fights are one of the important aspects in the movie that are well framed.

Editing by Anthony L Ruben is enough good, but could have trimmed a couple of scenes in the second half to make it edgy.


Naan Sigappu Manithan scores top specially in the areas like Thiru's style of avoiding heroism by keep connecting to his script's theme. Balancing the right quotient of romance, action, comedy and emotions. And last but not least the much hyped Vishal-Lakshmi Menon's chemistry is one of the highlights of Naan Sigappu Manithan and their much talked about lip-lock is well handled on screen.

First half of Naan Sigappu Manithan is engaging compared to the second, as the movie gets more into revenge seeking with more action sequences and lengthy scenes by the end. Interval block is a bang with edge of the seat twist that makes you literally stick to your seats till the very end.
