After last week's Iraivi, we have yet another women-centric film from debutante director Nelson. Oru Naal Koothu narrates the tale of three women--Lakshmi (Mia George), Susheela (Ritvika) and Kavya (Nivedha)--and their stint with marriage. Lakshmi is a homely girl who is waiting for her Mr Right while Susheele, a RJ and Kavya, a software professional get into a tricky situation to choose between arranged and love marriage. Dinesh, Ramesh Tilak and Karunakaran also plays important role in this emotional comedy.
The ladies give out a solid performance--Mia is perfect as a soft-spoken, meek girl while Nivetha Pethuraj and Ritvika nail it as educated, urban women.
It is good to see Dinesh breaking away from the regular bearded look. Though the casting of Ramesh Thilak comes as a surprise, the role seems to be nothing new to him. He is already a well-known RJ in his real life and he performs it with ease.
Veteran actor Charlie's role--though small but powerful--needs a special mention.
Cinematographer Gokul has captured the visuals with its soul and goes well in sync with Justin's music.
Bala Saravanan's comedy timings are too loud
A practical attempt from director Nelson, it is refreshing to see a piece of reality on screen however, he could have concentrated more on the screenplay and pace of the film.
The editing could have been better, especially towards the second half.
Verdict: A Reality Check on Relationships!
