'7G Rainbow colony' debuted an actor who portrayed the character of a young lad in the most apt manner. After a few duds, Ravikrishna has now opted to get in to the line of action with 'Netru Indru Naalai'. It is indeed a comeback for the actor that has rejuvenated his acting career. The plot of the story is based on an action-thriller that takes place in just 72 hours, which is the title. Ravikrishna has shed his weight considerably and looks refreshingly different in the role of the protagonist.
The movie begins with Vettri (Ravikrishna), who is on the verge of ending his life. Frustrated by not getting a job and none to help him, he decides to commit suicide. When he decides to jump into a moving train, a dead man along with a cellular phone is spotted by him in the nick of the moment. He receives a call through the phone which makes his life go topsy-turvy. Vettri hides his identity and poses himself as Kishore, the dead man found by him on the railway track. He gets richer in a day's time and money starts pouring in from all quarters. Later, he also comes across Swapana (Akshara), who loves Vettri by his forged identity as Kishore.
Fate strikes a fatal blow on his new found riches and takes a turn in his life. A baddie in the city Poorana (Ajay) thinks Kishore had eloped with his cash and decides to kill Kishore. This marks the cat and mouse chase that begins and continues throughout the movie, to end in serenity. How Vettri manages to escape the evil-eyes of Poorana forms the crux of the story.
The credit goes in entirety to director Lakshmikanth, who has managed to infuse all ingredients that would appease action-buffs, at the same time will lure youngsters to the cinema halls. The highlight of the movie is brilliant dialogues penned down by Prasanna Kumar. The writer walks away with aplomb in an abundant number of scenes.
Tamannah plays a cameo but unfortunately it is an insignificant role in the film. When she has no prominent part to emote in the script makes one wonder that what made her accept the offer in the first place. Nasser plays his part as a baddy well. He has enough screen space in the movie and he utilizes it well. He wins with his hands down as a treacherous scelerat. Ajay, who plays the villainous role of Poorana, is a typical villain, who is loud, evoking a lot of sound on screen. Karunaas's comedy is refreshingly different and he does a neat job of tickling the audience. Akshara as the female lead delivers and gives an adequate performance par with what her character demands.
Lokesh's editing and Ganesh's choreography is worth a mention. Thanks to Ravikrishna's bold performance and catchy musical score by Anil, the movie manages to sustain the interest of the audience. If you haven't seen the movie yesterday, then see it today or tomorrow because it's worth a watch.
