After a brief delay in releasing of the film, Nimirnthu Nil was released in theatre on Saturday evening. Samuthirakani known for his movies Naadodigal and Poraali brings Nimirnthu Nil which has corruption as the main ingredient. The movie shows a lot of real life scenarios where common man gets affected by corruption and how it has become a part of our life. After seeing Jeyam ravi in only remakes of his brother, he looks different in this character and as given a good performance. Soori who plays Jeyam ravi’s friend has been given a lot of scope and he too delivers. Amala paul plays her part but nothing new to boast about. Even with a good plot the movie strays in the second half of the film. Random songs and unwanted scenes delay the predictable ending. G V Prakash’s background score is good but music fails in the song sequences. Sarath kumar was not needed in the film; it was as though he was brought in to do an item number but in a stunt sequence. With elections around the corner Nimirnthu Nil Stands tall in the theatres with its powerful message.I give it 5/10
