Allari Naresh plays the character of Surya Prakash, who is a middle class IT employee, living happily with his parents and fiancee. Suddenly, one day his life turns upside down as, he gets implicated in a murder case which he didn’t commit. He is jailed for 5 years as a trial prisoner and fights to prove his innocence amidst the abuse and harassment by the law enforcement officers. How Surya fights the system and understands the power of IPC Section 211, through an advocate, to get himself out of the crunch forms the plot of the movie.
Allari Naresh’s performance as a trail prisoner, Surya Prakash is being considered one of the best, which shall be remembered forever. The actor makes you feel the pain every time he is subjected to torture by police officers. Allari Naresh performed some bold scenes in the jail, which were so realistic that they will make you rethink as a person about this society and humanity.
Varakalshmi Sarathakumar is truly a gem of an actor and has proved it yet again with her performance in Naandhi. She played the role of Aadhya, an advocate, who changes the game and becomes a true hero as she fights for the justice of Surya Prakash. Comedians Praveen and Priyadarshi were the silent killers of the film, who aced every scene with so much ease. Harish Uttaman, who played a bad cop, showed a deep and sad reality of the legislative system.
A film like this demands excellent writing and Director Vijay excels at that! He tells a story that goes beyond the usual tropes of a man wronged, getting bail and seeking revenge. The director also educated the audience by highlighting a few lesser known facts such as the Indian Penal Code, (IPC 211.) Naandhi very well tries to show that every person is equal before the law and will deliver justice to victims, not frame more innocent people.
It is just not the movie which is engaging, the music composed by Sri Charan Pakala is on point. The background score during the jail scenes will leave you with goosebumps.
Overall, Naandhi is a well intentioned hard hitting, realistically mounted thriller drama that deals with the judiciary and legislative branches of our government. Naandhi is an eye opener and Allari Naresh’s performance is one of its kind. The audiences are raving Naandhi as a hit and are welcoming Allari Naresh back to form.
