The title is lifted from one of late matinee idol and former Tamil Nadu chief minister M.G. Ramachandran`s hit movie number meaning "tomorrow shall be ours".
The film`s director Vinayan has been credited with offbeat screen successes like "Kasi" starring Vikram. But this time Vinayan has handed out a big disappointment as the film in nothing but a mish-mash of fights, item numbers and crass comedy.
In a nutshell, "Naalai Namathey" is all about a rich crook (Ashish Vidyarthi), his donation of Rs.12 billon to a government-run orphanage and a criminally bent politician (Rajan P. Dev) with dubious intentions to usurp the cash.
With this thin ice for a storyline, director Vinayan has skated with his proceedings with an attempt at romance between the leads Sharvand and Tanisha, the sidelight of a courtesan, who cannot dance (Kiran), and an item number from glorified extra Rahasiya - all strictly meant for voyeurs.
While the music and cinematography are somewhere around the average, the rest of the cast including a hamming Vidyarthi seriously torture the audience.
In his right mind, editor Mukesh ought to have trashed the whole film. Instead, he has merely snipped the no-good shots and the clapper-marks to give the film its length to justify cinemas to claim their rent.
Vinayan has blotted his copybook with this B grade stuff.
