Thirumanam Enum Nikkah is an insincerely emotional and overtly pretentious love story solely riding on the shoulders of Ghibran’s elating background score.

The film opens with a bunch of enraged Muslims chasing Jai. Bang. We cut to the flashback. And, the story is narrated in flashback before it culminates in a schmaltzy climax. The ultimate disappointment of the film is it never attempts to make the audiences invest in its lead characters, around whom the entire story is interknit.

Jai (Vijayraghavan Chari) is on a trip to Coimbatore but he has not reserved his tickets. Mayilsamy, who runs a ticket booking agency facilitates him with a ticket purchased under the name of Abu Bucker, a Muslim. Jai meets Nazriya Nazim (Vishnu Priya) in the train, who is also disguised as Ayesha (a Muslim) for reasons which will be revealed later. A predictable love at first sight scene is followed by a contrived hero-saves-heroine scene during their journey. Nazriya is impressed by Jai’s heroic act by now, but only scarcely. Few days later, they meet again, exchange numbers and set up a meeting at a café. Jai and Nazriya maintain their faux Muslim identity during their encounters (for the sake of it) and they fall in love with their religion without their knowledge. What happens when their real identities – that Vijayaraghava Chari and Vishnu Priya are orthodox Brahmins – are revealed? “Will they marry each other or not?” The answer to this impending question forms the rest of the plot.

The film revolves around this pretentious love story. The second half appears as a well-stocked assortment of religious propaganda. Director Anees’s earnestness for telling a love story laced with inter-religious tensions is blatantly let down by a lifeless story-telling and poor execution. The backstory and origin of celebrating Ramzan and other Muslim practices are forcefully fed to the audiences without any respect to the narration.

Nazriya looks angelic in Loganathan’s close-up shots, especially in Kannukkul Pothi Veipen song where she exudes immense amount of charm. Jai has given a middling performance, at best. Ghibran is the only solacing factor in this gravely underwhelming love tale. He has effectively utilized Yazin Nazar’s enchanting vocals from Yaaro Ival for the most crucial scenes in the film.

In short, Thirumanam Enum Nikkah is a series of haplessly written scenes professing to be a love story with a difference.
