NPNO details a village with a small police station and four cops and their lifestyle, attitudes. Director Sri Krishna has taken a simple plot has kept it simple and dramatic without roaming too much around intricacies. Sans risks, Arulnidhi has decided to give in to audiences’ interest with humor after Demonte Colony.

Set in a nondescript village named Por Panthal, the film traces the life of four cops who feel contented by the peaceful life they lead thanks to the noble souls in the village which is devoid of crimes or robberies. However, an unfortunate situation disturbs the life of the policemen which in turn risks the life of entire villagers.

The film has its moments here and there but they don’t make up for the awful lot which makes us impatient to sit through the entire running time. Director Sri Krishna has tried to do his damnedest to make the comical elements in the film work, but his strategies misfire courtesy the uninteresting execution and staging.

Arulnithi has not much work to do, followed by Bagavathi Perumal who is still unable to come out from his obvious expressions. On the technical aspects, cinematography by Mahesh captures the sense of the village cleanly, editing from Sabu Joseph has not really helped with the film meandering occasionally. And the songs from Rejin are middling.

Singam Puli is the only saving grace in an otherwise drilling drama which makes you cringe. The needless romance portion with Remya Nambeesan, the middling story-line and the contrived emotions in the second half deviating from the genre don’t work in favor of the film. With a decent plot to explore, director Sri Krishna has missed a good opportunity to churn out a watchable comedy drama.
