Nenu Rowdy Ne-Story
Right from his childhood, Pandu(Vijay Sethupathi) always dreams of becoming a rowdy. Even though his mother is a strict police officer, he manages to become a small time goon and does settlements without his mother's knowledge. On the other hand, Kadambari(Nayanthara) is a partially deaf girl who is on the look out for her father who has been missing after taking on a dreaded criminal called Killi Babji(Parthiban). One fine day, Kadambari meets Pandu and narrates her dreadful story. Cupid strikes Pandu and he decides to help Kadambari at any cost. Rest of the story is as to how Pandu manages to find Kadambari's father and also takes on the powerful Killi Babji.
Nenu Rowdy Ne-Star Performance
Nayanthara as a bold girl with hearing impairment does an extremely convincing and satisfying job with her performance. She looks fresh, homespun and is a girl that any man will fall in love with. Radhakrishnan Parthiban never fails to enthrall the audience with his appearance, be it on stage to deliver a speech or as a gangster with a twist in the case of NRD. For the audiences who have enjoyed Vijay Sethupathi's body language and dialogue delivery in his previous works, they will have a new element to add to their list, as he showcases a high degree of admiration and love through his eyes, in every frame he shares with Nayanthara.
Nenu Rowdy Ne-Technical Team
Camera work suits the mood of the film and showcases the rustic visuals well. Music by Anirudh Ravichander is a major plus for the film. All the tunes are quite peppy and have been designed nicely. Credit should go to the way Anirudh has composed a unique background score for the film. Coming to the director Vignesh Shivan, he has done an okay job. The way he has written his script and executed the revenge drama in a funny way is quite new and unique. But the way he has messed up the second half and makes the the proceedings predictable is a bit disappointing.
Nenu Rowdy Ne-Analysis
Overall, Nenu Rowdy Ne is a new age dark comedy which is narrated with a unique style and ample comedy. Stunning performances by Vijay Sethupati and Nayanthara makes things lively. But a lack luster and predictable second half and certain silly scenes in serious situations spoils the fun to an extent. All those who like crime comedies might like this film, but for others they can watch it if they have absolutely nothing else to do.
