Science fictions have never been a forum in Tamil cinema, not because they try and fail but for the rare occasion of an attempt from the makers in the Kollywood industry. Debutant director Ravi Kumar has chipped in with the fiction factors and has been positive through his writing with major help from the CG and cast.

Indru Netru Naalai really takes you the past, present and future with logic and treats the audience periodically. There is no limit for thoughts as it runs ahead without control – this is the simple plot from the director with which he has added spicy romance and comedy with some strong performances. When coming to the script, not all good movies win and not all bad movies lose, it really lies within the audience for they are the ultimate deciders and with the respect, Indru Netru Naalai stays on the winning side.

Vishnu has been already noticed with his script selections and these particular guts have proved him luckiest yet again. The movie starts with Arya way ahead of our times in 2065, a scientist who looks in for more development with the invention of the time travel machine. He succeeds it with a technical twist bringing the frame to the real time – 2015 where Vishnu, Karunakaran and TM Karthik meet up and finds the machine by accident. Vishnu aspires to be a businessman with new ideas but fails to live on due to the financial hiccups. Karunakaran on the other side is an astrologer (or even pretends to be one is the reason for the fun part). TM Karthik is a pocket scientist, his inventions looks funny with brilliance, the actor looks in good shape carving his role perfectly with care even with his costumes being a good sign indeed. Miya George, the love interest for Vishnu, has justified with her performance, charm and elegance and has plenty in the frame of performance and graceful with the looks. Using the time travel machine Vishnu and Karunakaran gain popularity and at the same time recreate problems that they themselves have to face in the latter parts of the movie. The end for the first half is fun and in parallel, superbly setup for a terrific action break.

The second half is partly sliced with Ravi Shankar’s screen presence as he has proved to be a superb villain in the business. He must be appreciated for his expressions and tone, which bring in the required feel. Vishnu and Karunakaran are made to face Ravi Shankar, and what happens thereafter forms the rest of the film. The neatly panned out film does a huge favour for the audience who have gone pale watching typical romance, action and commercial cinema from the makers. Everything might change but Tasmac looks a MNC in 2065, whether that is a joke or something that Ravikumar insist us to think about is a strict insider social message. The technical team will and should take the major credits, the fiction factors looks pleasing and CG by Phantom FX is certainly topnotch. Leo John Paul’s editing is razor sharp, Cinematography by R Vasanth is an additional plus and Hip Hop Tamizha with his music looks in good touch and does improvise from his previous film. Overall, Indru Netru Naalai is a comfortable travel back and forth which provokes youngsters into a wide search for the time travel device in the present.
