Review: Natpathigaram - Friends forever

Friday, 11 March 2016
M Bharat Kumar

After a brief exile, filmmaker Ravichandran of 'Kannethiray Thondrinal' fame, is back with 'Natpathigaram', a movie that speaks of friendship and contemporary romance.

The movie stars Raj Bharath, Amjad, Reshmi Menon and Tejaswi in lead roles. M S Baskar, Subbu Panchu and Vinodhini are supporting cast.

The movie revolves around Raj Bharath who plays Jeeva. As aspiring marine officer, he falls for a rich girl Pooja (Tejaswi). They bond well. Meanwhile, there is Aravind (Amjad), a rich boy who loves Maha (Reshmi Menon). The couple come across each other and become friends. Turn of events lead to break up between the couple. Jeeva gets estranged from Pooja, while Maha breaks up with  Aravind. Without their knowledge, the families of Jeeva and Maha arrange for their wedding. The rest is about how the couple come to terms with each other and understand the situation and come together again. An emotional drama that is engaging all through. Raj Bharath does a super show. He is cool and bubbly. Emotions come naturally to him.

Amjad is tailor-made for the role. Reshmi gets a meaty role and she pulls it off well. Tejaswi is glamourous and carries herself well. M S Baskar and Subbu Panchu chip in well.

The first half is breezy and entertaining, while the second half is emotional all through. Dialogues are razor-sharp and add value to the script.

Cinematography by B Gurudev is bright and beautiful while the music composed by Deepak Nilambur is hummable. Produced by Ravikumar, 'Natpathigaram', the film written and directed by Ravichandran, is a good watch for youngsters.
