‎EnakkulOruvan‬ Movie Review


Story: Majority of human beings in this world wants to live the life of others. Siddharth suffers from insomnia (sleeplessness) & takes drugs to live a life, which is completely different from his real life. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Siddharth – He looks handsome as an Actor & has done the role with ease. But, village characterization with black colour makeup doesn’t suit him much.

Deepa Sannidhi – Beautiful Bangalore based actress makes wonderful debut in Tamil Cinema with a movie, which revolves around her. She looks beautiful as a Village girl & has given her best. As an actress, she looks glamorous. But, unfortunately all those scenes are shown in ‘’black & white” colour.

Shrusti – After Megha & Darling, she makes a special appearance in this movie as an actress, the role doesn’t have much scope for her to perform.

Naren – Easily, he is the best actor in the movie. He doesn’t have huge platform to show his acting skills. But, even in usual scenes, he impresses with his wonderful acting.

Music Director Santhosh Narayanan – He is one of the heroes of this movie. One department, which is far better than the original version is Music.

Editor Leo John Paul – It is too difficult to edit non-linear movie like this & he has made sure that atleast majority of the audience understands the concept, if they are hooked to the seats for the complete 2 hours.

Cinematographer Gopi Amarnath – 50% of the movie is shown in ‘’Black & White” colour. Kudos to the Production team, for not compromising anything from the original version (which was low budget, targeting social media networking audiences in particular). He has made sure that even those black & white scenes look rich.

Director Prasad Rama makes bold debut in Tamil Cinema with one of the most complicated concept in Tamil Cinema. He was co-writer for one of the best movies in Tamil Cinema ‘’Pizza’’. Lucia was a low budget movie & hence, even the Satellite rights were sold for much more than the budget. He has done complete justice to the original version, without making any compromises (which acts as both positive & drawback for the movie).

Overall, Enakkul Oruvan is honest remake of Lucia with higher budget & wonderful music by Santhosh Narayanan. Lucia original version will continue to be dream version for aspiring talented young film makers.
