Gandhi (Hiphop Tamizha Adhi) is a youngster who is happily living in the middle-class life with his rented house, EMI paying bike and a normal IT job. He falls in love with Ankitha (Iswarya Menon), a colleague, who is expecting Gandhi to be proper, well-read and from a high-class background such that even though he doesn’t have such a background, she wanted him to at least pretend as someone who has everything for the sake of his dad to accept for their marriage. In one instance, Gandhi’s job remains in stake due to a small conflict between him and his boss such that he is said to retain in his job only if he clears his engineering arrear exams. During his exams and due to the stress on the future, Gandhi bursts out his laughter instead of crying or being sad right in the exam hall. Been facing a strange disorder, he keeps laughing out everywhere he experiences some fear or sorrow or any other stressful emotion. In such an instance, Dilli Babu (Yogi Babu), a best friend of Gandhi has a love failure and gets abscond in frustration. On the other hand, there is an attack planned to kill a gangster with the name of Dilli Babu (K. S. Ravikumar) whereas Gandhi and his friends will mistakenly reach the place of the rowdy instead of the real killers. What will happen next? Will Gandhi freak out and laugh loud in fear of the terror gangster? Will he find his friend ‘Dilli Babu’? Will he join with his girlfriend Ankitha? Will his laughing disorder will become normal follows the rest in ‘Naan Sirithal’!


Looking keen into the screenplay and the story, the premise, and the idea was nice which was tried typically in a comical way. However, Adhi played a very pitiful role, there was no mere pity felt at any instance rather than having a tiring feel while there was unnecessary mess evolved. Also, the first half seemed ok with back to back songs and with a linear story but was giving a slight feeling of watching Sundar C’s ‘Kalakalappu’ as the film was approaching to the second half. Besides that, the flow was ongoing with constant fun and thrills along with the peppy songs of Adhi, the cinematography and editing looked decent.


As usual, Hiphop Adhi had tried impressing the audience and recent youngster generation with his energetic dialogues, he was not showing off anything depressing through the character he owed in the film. As a cute heroine, Iswarya Menon has added beauty to the screens. Also, K. S. Ravi Kumar as the terror villain, Munishkanth and Sha Ra as the dumb gangsters, ‘Badava’ Gopi as Adhi father and many others had performed their roles well. Last but not least, ‘Bigg Boss’ fame Julie and Yogi Babu had performed well even though their characters traveled for very little time.

What works?

1) Premise

2) First half

3) Very few comedy sequences

What doesn’t work?

1) Not so strong screenplay

2) Second half

3) Unwanted characters

On the whole, ‘Naan Sirithal’ is a pathetic rollercoaster ride which will create the same vibes of Sundar C’s ‘Kalakalappu’!

Verdict: ‘Naan Sirithal’ is laughter not ‘in’ but completely ‘out’ story!

Ratings: 4.5/10
