Arun Vaidyanathan-directorial Nibunan is hitting the screens this Friday, July 28 with a lot of positive buzz around the movie. The movie was screened for select critics on Tuesday, July 25. Nibunan is simultaneously made in Tamil and Kannada languages. Arjun, Prasanna, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Sruthi Hariharan are part of the multi-starrer, which has S Navin’s music, Arvind Krishna’s cinematography and Sathish Suriya’s editing.
The movie features Action King Arjun, Prasanna, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar and Sruthi Hariharan, and is directed by Arun Vaidyanathan. Actor Arjun will play the part of a DSP who excels at his job but struggles to balance work and family, in a relatable theme that is backed up by a screenplay that the creators are confident will keep the audience glued to their seats.
Actor Arjun looks stylish and charming out fit and honest officer, and he excels in the couple of action blocks he gets. Varalaxmi and Prasanna have enough space for their roles and are good as the protagonist’s aides. Actress Sruthi Hariharan strikes a good chemistry with Arjun and her casting as a concerned and loving wife is apt. The film takes an interesting turn when the team starts chasing a serial killer. The bilingual movie has been described as a “solid investigative thriller” by the critics.
The first 15-20 minutes of Nibunan clearly establishes the kind of a movie it aspires to be. There is plenty of action, several moments where DSP Ranjith Kalidas gets to play the saviour. In fact, the camera lingers on Kalidas’ gun for a few seconds before it pans to his face. Right from the opening sequence, Kalidas is the knight in shining armour, who swoops in and saves the day; irrespective of whether it’s his colleagues Joseph or Vandhana who get stuck or someone else.
