“It’s always hard to digest the truth”, The story line details and stays on this fact. Nimirnthu Nil is the apt title and tells the fact and working culture of the government employees in the country. The first half is the racy plot leaving the audience not even to blink with so good touch in the performance.
Jayam Ravi gets his basic education in an ashram ran by Nasser where he learns self discipline, devotion, dignity, decorum and mutual respect for fellow humans. He tries it in his daily living and fails in each and every aspect of his daily activities. But gets humiliated virtually inducing him to fight against corruption and disobedience of law & order. Amala Paul comes in for a soft romantic portion and gets attracted towards Ravi’s honesty & innocence. She impresses with her realistic dialogues and expressions.
The first half details the role and activity of corrupted government officials and truth gets hard to digest. Ravi along with Soori, Thambi Ramaiah, Subbu Panchu, Gopinath and others plans to create a fake profile of a person who doesn’t really exist and they also succeed by bribing the officials. Ravi gets the proof of all the activity and makes a record to sue all the officials corresponding to the event. The proof is showcased to the public through the help of the media and politicians try to stop this act by bringing in CBI Officer Sarath Kumar. By proving the work nature of the officials, Ravi induces the anger of all the youngsters and gathers all the crowd in support for the cause, ends the first half.
The government official involved in the issue is taken to enquiry and given a period of time to prove that they haven’t made any wrong profiles. The officials gather to solve the issue and collects the proof to get the glimpse of identity of the person for whom they have issued the certificates. The photograph portrays Ravi in a different look claiming as Haricharan. The officials tries to find the person with the same identity and virtually finds Narasimma Reddy (another role of Jayam Ravi), who looks very similar as in the certificate. He justifies himself as baddie with his harsh performance and borrows a huge amount of money in return to come in as Haricharan, as the fake profile created. The dual role is forced to become good with an usual twist as in all Tamil movies which the audience would have witnessed earlier. It is dragged with unnecessary actions, songs and quietly missing the good rapport that was created in the first half. The director needs to be praised for maintaining such a huge crowd of celebrities and getting the performance might have been a bigger challenge.
