Technical Aspects & Music

Feel good films seem to be on the trend right now, with Thiruchitrambalam’s success leading the way. And rightly so, we now have Nitham Oru Vaanam now which is the directorial debut for director Ra. Karthik.

Nitham Oru Vaanam is the story of Arjun (Ashok Selvan), a reticent youngster with an OCD and one who lives a life drawn with a scale. After his wedding gets cancelled, Arjun goes on a downward spiral and gets depressed. On meeting a doctor, he is directed to two short stories which have no end to them. Arjun then decides to go on a trip to find out the end point of the stories, and takes Subha (Ritu Varma) along with him.

The interesting part about Nitham Oru Vaanam is in how director Ra Karthik intertwines the three characters played by Ashok Selvan in the film, and presents us a tale that is worth following. Though the pacing of the film is slow, it does give you a lot of points to think about and the journey between the lead characters is interesting for sure. The second half of the film has a couple of good surprises packed into it, and the way in which it is revealed is also in a fascinating way.

Ashok Selvan delivers a very good performance in a role that demands a lot of work from the actor. It is probably the biggest canvas that he has worked on, and the actor gives the film what it needs. Ritu Varma has a charming and likable role that gives the film a lot of gloss, and she does a fabulous job here. Shivathmika Rajasekhar has a matured presence in the film, while Aparna Balamurali has a chirpy role to play and does well in it.

The film benefits big from the stunning cinematography by Vidhu Ayyana who delivers double of what he did in his previous films. There is a Bollywood-like feel to the film with the visuals, but it would have been great if the same was delivered through the songs by Gopi Sundar which are bummers. However, Dharan Kumar’s background score is carried out in a great way and acts as a plus to the film.

On the whole, Nitham Oru Vaanam is a neat and enjoyable feel-good drama that is worth watching for the positivity it spreads and the performances. The film could have done with tighter pacing but still manages to get through with a fine final output.  Nitham Oru Vaanam Movie Review by Siddarth Srinivas
