Nandha
Reviewer's Summary - Above Average

Language: Tamil
Year: 2001
Actors: Surya, Laila, Raj Kiran
Director: Bala
Producer: Ganesh Raghu, Karthick Radhakrishnan, Venky Narayanan, Rajan Radhakrishnan
Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Written by: Bala

Nandha is not your run of the mill Tamil movie. Thank heaven for that.

Love does not occupy center stage but is instead only one element in this movie, which veers off the beaten track.

Surya has played with much panache the role of a young man who suffers rejection at the hands of his mother.

As a young boy, Nandha (Surya) gets angry when he sees his father beating his mother. To protect his mother from his father, Nandha rips a wooden ornament off the wall and hits his father on the head. Unfortunately, the blow is severe and his father falls down dead.

Since Nandaa is still a juvenile, he is not sent to prison. Instead, he is sent to a special school for young criminals.

After his release from the school, Nandha eagerly heads home only to meet with rejection from his mother.

Nandha's repeated attempts at reconciliation are rebuffed by his mother.

The town's bigwig (Raj Kiran) takes Nandha under his wings giving the young lad a degree of emotional support and anchor that he's desperately seeking.

As the young Sri Lankan refugee and Nandha's lady love Kalyani, Laila has put in a fine performance within the confines of her limited role. Laila has the fresh-faced appeal, seldom seen in most actresses these days.

When finally Nandha's mother appears to be relenting, we know - and Nandha knows too - where it'll all end.

Overall, the music was a bit of a letdown. Sung by Illayaraja, Engengo Kaalgal Sellum is one of the better songs.

Director Bala deserves kudos for breaking away from the straitjacket of love that shackles most Indian film makers and venturing to make a different kind of movie. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
