Movie Verdict

Many people saw the announcement for Nene Vasthunna and assumed it would be another blockbuster for Dhanush and Selvaragavan, but early reviews indicated that the film would be more low-key. Films such as “Pudhupettai,” “Kadhal Kondein,” and “Mayakkam Enna” are among the many classics that Dhanush and Selvaragavan have made.

Dhanush’s efforts weren’t enough to preserve the movie. The film picks up momentum in the second half when the protagonist’s history is disclosed, and the trauma he experienced as a youngster provides a rather plausible explanation for his out-of-the-ordinary behavior. The film’s opening is really engaging because it sets up the main characters and the story. The movie’s premise is intriguing, but the drama is unbearable, and the incredibly sluggish narration kills whatever momentum the film might have had in the first half.

Dhanush convincingly plays two very different roles: a family man, in which he is simply laid-back and easygoing, and a lunatic, in which he shows his true mettle. Both Elli Avaram and Induja produced excellent performances, Selvaraghvan reestablished himself as a credible actor, and the rest of the cast did a fine job as a whole. The audience is fascinated by the film’s Dejavu-related plot twists.

The director Selva Raghavan, who is widely regarded as one of India’s finest and most original voices in cinema, put his all to Nene Vasthunn but ultimately failed to captivate viewers with his story. His story, direction, and characterization are unparalleled.

Technically, Nene Vasthunna works because Om Prakash managed to film some breathtaking landscapes in Ooty, as well as some intense close-ups of the film’s protagonists and intriguing set pieces. While the Telugu and Tamil versions of Yuvan Shankar Raja’s songs fell short, the background score was memorable, and the rest of the technical crew did a great job.

Cinemagoers who enjoy a wide variety of film styles will find a lot to enjoy in Nene Vasthunna.
