Parthiepan made his directorial comeback through the film ‘Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam’ and that was highly appreciated for the creative writing. Now his new project titled’ Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga has been getting through the same mode. The film stars Shanthanu Bhagyaraj and Parvathi Nair in lead roles alongside Parthiepan, where Simran and Thambi Ramaiah are seen in important roles.
Parthiepan plays a slightly physically challenged cab driver, who has some bungalows under his supervision as serviced apartment. He comes across Kevin (Shanthanu Bhagyaraj), who arrives from USA and is requested by Parthiepan to stay there so that it might give some revenue. On his stay, Shanthanu comes across a beautiful young lady Mohini (Parvathy Nair), whom he tries to hitch up with. But a shocking twist occurs when he gets to know that she is none other than Parthiepan’s wife, but then his desire of lust doesn’t stop him from going ahead.
Parthiepan doesn’t miss to bring forth his usual paradigm of trademark dialogues in this film, where he tries to come up with the double entendres. Well, although the film is certified UA, there are chances that family audiences would come to theatres and might get irked up. On the other hand, we have to appreciate Parthiepan’s way of sketching characterizations and handling the star-cast too. The first half gets through a non-directional screenplay, where he cannot guess what’s really going to happen and where the story is actually travelling towards. There are certain unexpected turns of events by the second hour, but that comes with a neat stroke of predications. When it comes to technical front, there are abrupt cuts over the editing and the cinematography is good with clear picturing. The background score goes too loud and unwontedly jarring in places and the songs are pretty okay.
As usual Parthiepan delivers nuance performance and he delivers it so naturally. Shanthanu Bhagyaraj tries to overcome his usual style of acting and tries to deliver a matured show. Parvathy Nair has nothing much to express or emote, except her pre-climax portions. Simran appears for no reason and we don’t see what’s the relevance she has with the movie... Thambi Ramaiah has done his portions well and others in the cast too have their acting done with aptness.
2. The comedy sequence involving Parthiepan and Thambi Ramaiah
What doesn’t work?
1. Double entendres
2. Sluggish first half
3. Background score
If director Parthiepan had tried to reduce the impact of double entendres and tries to focus upon more on the depth of narration, Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga would have been yet more appealing in many parts.
