Ajith Kumar’s Nerkonnda Paarvai that is being screened countrywide is a film that every youngster -- especially teenage girls -- should definitely watch. Parents too should make sure to watch this film as it gives a very down to earth message to the present younger generation which presumes that it is in control of everything and think that it knows to decide for itself.
“Nerkonda Paarvai, starring Ajith in the lead role is a faithful remake of the Bollywood original Pink. Despite minor flaws, Nerkonda Paarvai conveys the much-needed message about women’s safety and consent,” the India Today said in its review
“Ajith hits it out of the park in a solid remake of Pink,” it said.
Though not much of an art film to be analysed for its technicalities and artistic intricacies, the film has a strong message society needs as it is today -- particularly the younger generations.
"The songs are passable. Music Director Yuvan Shankar Raja (Son of Ilaya Raja) I should say, has failed as his music has not adequately provided the feeling that usually lingers on when one walks out of the cinema after watching a good serious movie "
As for the acting, there is no doubt, the casts have delivered more than what was expected of them especially the three women actors and the Director have aptly felt the pulse of the cine-goers providing a mix of features, that is the music, dance, the fights that had been placed in between the episodes including the supportive actors.
When it comes to the dialogue of the protagonist, they have been carefully scripted to suit the personality of a tried and tested hero who has proved himself and who has created an image for himself in the Tamil cine world.
The cinematography includes all the modern technology prevailing in Kollywood and the music is at its peak when watching on a widescreen with acoustic effects.
However, the songs are passable. Music Director Yuvan Shankar Raja (Son of Ilaya Raja) I should say, has failed as his music has not adequately provided the feeling that usually lingers on when one walks out of the cinema or later after watching a good serious movie. As for, an adult who has passed half a century, I found this film to be extraordinary after a very long time in comparison to the present-day movies that are mostly based on action, violence, sex and whatnot, to attract the youth rather than the entire society.
The storyline in this film says how the young generation of girls and working young women should know how to draw a line when they venture out to ‘enjoy’ life with fellow workers, students and adults in society.
"I found this film to be extraordinary after a very long time in comparison to the present-day movies that are mostly based on action, violence, sex and whatnot, to attract the youth rather than the entire society"
It is an eye-opener to schoolgirls, parents and to society and portrays the message that when one gets embroiled in a crime or crisis, how difficult and horrendous it becomes for the victims to come out of it and the hassles, agony, mental pressure and humiliation one has to undergo to retrieve oneself from the quagmire of the events that follow.
It is a story of three young unassuming working women who get trapped into a relationship for a brief enjoyment during which the women are lured into a wrong relationship, as the Director puts it effectively describing as, hints that the predators take as a cue or indicator to exploit the unsuspecting victims.
The film is spiced with a mega musical fiesta and a violent street fight scene that the youth enjoy with whistles and hoots to express their euphoria towards Ajith Kumar who is dubbed as Mega Star in Kollywood.
It depicts the South Indian political ethos in which spoilt children of politicos, prey on their victims with the power of money and influence of the Police.
The story gathers momentum with court scenes in which the protagonist, despite having lost all interest in life after the demise of his spouse and the twin children at childbirth, is compelled into a situation to stand by the hapless trio, who are framed for molestation and bad behaviour including attempted murder.
The court scenes are similar to what many of us who are used to Kollywood films are used to-but enlightening the common man on the trivialities and technicalities of the legal procedure.
"As for the male youth, the message in this film says not to take the females for granted and the wrong conceptions that the society has on the feminine gender"
The sadistic display of legal acumen of a State Counsel is portrayed to such an extent that it irks the public and the viewers how the law is manipulated by those in power.
Every minute detail in a court is depicted with high clarity with no exaggerations, that drives a message to the average man.
As for the male youth, the message in this film says not to take the females for granted and the wrong conceptions that the society has on the feminine gender.
In one instance one of the victims, who had been framed is driven to the extent of accepting the allegation because it was too much for her to bear the mental agony that she undergoes during the interrogation by the Prosecutor.
In a scene, the Judge himself feels so bad by the questions posed to the victim, that he makes an offer to hear the case in camera. In conclusion, it is a perfect movie for everyone, but will be a disappointment to the illiterate and fun-loving pranksters.
This film is highly recommended for school shows especially in the urban part of the country as most of the parents are apprehensive or reluctant to discuss such sensational matters with present-day children. It is really worth watching this movie.
The legal drama film is written and directed by H. Vinoth and produced by Boney Kapoor, as the film is a remake of the Hindi film Pink (2016).
In addition to Ajith Kumar, Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Venkatachalam and Andrea Tariang (Reprising her role from the original film) in the lead roles, and Rangaraj Pandey and Adhik Ravichandran are in pivotal roles. Nirav Shah is the cinematographer of the film. Gokul Chandran is the editor.
The film’s soundtrack and background score were composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
