Thirumanam Enum Nikkah Movie Review
Directed by Aneesh
Produced by Aascar Ravichandran
Starring Jai, Nazriya Nazim, Heebah Patel, Jamal
Music by M. Ghibran
Production Aascar Films
Thirumanam Enum Nikkah finally saw the screens after a long wait. The Jai, Nazriya Nazim starrer movie is directed by debutant Anees and produced by Aascar Ravichandran. Ghibran has scored music for the movie.
Vijay Raghav Chari (Jai) and Vishnu Priya (Nazriya) assume identities of Muslims Abubakr and Ayesha respectively, due to forced situation. The couple fall in love with their muslim identities. When they come to know the truth of their original identities, will they love the same as before? Can they accept their love again ? This forms the storyline of Thirumanam Enum Nikkah.
The movie is filled with scenes portraying interesting rituals from Iyengar community and Muslim community. Certain scenes involving Nazriya, like the one in which she is in the middle of a rongoli, is praiseworthy. Cameraman Loganathan deserves a special mention for capturing wonderful artwork.
Jai and Nazriya’s performances are praiseworthy. They both gel well into their characters and played it to perfection. Though Nazriya has acted in few tamil films before, Thirumanan Enum Nikkah is her first signed project in tamil
Ghibran’s songs are already chartbusters in fm stations, especially Enthaaraa Enthaaraa, Kannukkul Pothivaipen and Chillendra earning top spots. captures the exact mood of the movie, be it islamic rituals or traditional hindu practices.
Director has shown great guts for choosing a different storyline in his debut movie. But he largely disappoints as he is trapped into a commercial pot boil. Few unnecessary scenes and songs drags the movie especially towards the climax. With few more slick cuts Thirumanam Enum Nikkah would have been much better.
Overall, Thirumanam Enum Nikkah’s script could have been much crisper, which fails miserably to aid the interesting storyline.
