First film in Tamil Cinema History to say about Narcolepsy disorder. See more »
The film was cut in the UK; in order to obtain a 12A classification the distributor chose to remove moments of strong violence and sexual violence (amounting to 2 minutes and 41 seconds in total). The uncut version was rated 15 but has since been withdrawn. See more »
In the footprints of Ghajini, Chandramukhi, Anniyan we have in our hands another well made disorder-based-thriller. Though the grandiose, as in the case of the former movies, is missing the plot has been kept simple and to the point and hence strikes a chord among the viewers.
Vishal's "Nan Sigappu Manithan" is the third venture from Vishal Film Factory and also the third film in Vishal-Thiru combination. Indiran (Vishal) suffers from Narcolepsy, a disorder that puts people to sleep at the slightest excitement of emotions. When his love life with Meera (Lakshmi Menon) is affected by this disorder he finds a temporary solution after which a tragedy strikes which forever alters his life.
Vishal with the tinted, and often cracked, glass is well suited for the role of a narcoleptic patient. Be it his innocence during the job-hunt or the shyness during his love-life or the anger during the revenge episode, he has very well distinguished his expressions and has lit up the screen. Though his disorder initially tickles the viewers, "the scene" totally shakes everyone to the core.
Lakshmi Menon as Vishal's Juliet has done her part with no blemishes. If Vishal sleeps in the first half, she takes over the job during the second.
Besides the lead, the art director deserves appreciation for his well made backdrops during the desert number and also for looking into the tiniest details (the mirror in the Vishal's home with a lot of stains is an example).
Nevertheless, Thiru's script is the first and foremost hero for spinning a web around a disorder and making it into a full length entertainer.
The only flaw that I found out: Indiran's mother initially thinks that her son falls unconscious. Later Indiran uses water as a recovery strategy. In any normal situations the first thing we do is to use water to wake up an unconscious person. But it took Indiran over two decades to discover that water-idea. Does it add up??
Still, "Naan Sigappu Manithan": Green Flag.
