Nimir Review & Story Plot:

Nimir Movie Story:

The story revolves around the life of an average photographer – National Selvam, played by Udhay, whose idea of clicking the perfect picture is making his customers go through a series of physical rituals: chin up, shoulder down and eyes wide. His father is the only member of the family, but he has his support from his uncle (MS Bhaskar). His childhood sweetheart Valli dumps him for a better life.

Adding furthermore complications to his life is when this good-hearted man gets thrashed by a ruffian for no reason. Now the innocent protagonist vows not to wear the slipper until he seeks revenge for the beating.

In the film, we can see Udhayanidhi Stalin as Selvam Namitha, Pramod as Malar, Parvatii Nair as Valli, J. Mahendran as Selvam’s father, Samuthirakani as ruffian. M. S. Bhaskar, Karunakaran, Maala Parvathi, Aruldoss, Ganja Karuppu, Imman Annachi and other in supporting roles.

Nimir Movie Review:

Priyadarshan fails to convincingly establish the relationships between the various characters and the milieu. The largely functional performances don’t help (Udhayanidhi tries, but it isn’t enough), and we never become emotionally involved with the characters, including Selvam. For the most parts, there is no energy in the scenes to keep us engaged.

‘Nimir’ is Tamil remake of ‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’. Essentially, the film is based on domino effect – how a chain of events are set off due to the cumulative effect of an event. Malayalam cinema’s answer to that was the much feted Maheshinte Prathikaram that was marked by a nuanced performance by Fahad Faasil. It fetched the Indian National Award and Kerala state award for Dileesh Pothan on his directorial debut and screenwriter Syam Puskaran.

Nimir Movie Rating: 2.5/5
