Days of destiny
Elango (Vishnu Vishal) is a jobless and carefree youngster. He has a beautiful and rich girlfriend Anu (Miya George).
One day, Anu takes Elango to her father (Jayapraksh) who insults him for being jobless. An upset Elango boozes along with his astrologer friend Puli (Karunakaran).
They meet with a freak accident and they bump into a scientist Parthasarathy (TM Karthik). Suddenly, the three come across a time machine and their lives are never the same.
Though it is a sci-fi, Indru Netru Naalai did not confuse us. Debutant director Ravikumar has made it as simple and appealing as possible.
Immediately after the film starts, it sucks us into it, and gives a different experience. It is fun to watch the lead actors going to different time frames, thanks to the machine.
Vishnu Vishal has improved in terms of performance, while Karunakaran speaks with his eyes. Mia George is a treat to watch. Karthik and Jayaprakash are also good.
Phantom’s VFX works need appreciation, while cinematography and music aid the film well. Kudos to producer C V Kumar for backing a meaningful entertainer once again.
On the flip side, there are few commercial compromises and the film is not fully engaging. But over all it’s good and has also opened doors to such sci-fi attempts.
