Critics Review


Naan Sigappu Manithan - Diverse halves !

Just like Samar, here too Thiru has many twists lined up towards the end. The hitch here is that while our actual interest is how the hero is going to give it back to the perpetrators of the crime with narcolepsy being in the way, we are all of a sudden given a new story that does shock us. But this shock also acts as a hindrance to the vibe that we have developed towards the plot that we actually thought was the main line of the film. (more)

Thiru is able to make an engrossing actor driven entertainer without any super hero gimmicks. NSM is an gripping entertainer which is not run-of-the-mill. (more)

A tense commercial entertainer.

Thiru's screenplay is mostly well intended as he successfully draws the audience into Indran's world and outlines the map for a gripping drama in the second half.(more)

A fair entertainer that loses the steam through the second half

The screenplay drags away even though there is enough suspense in the store for a good thriller movie. The songs are too lethargic when it comes to the visuals and they are placed quite drastically. That said, if variety is your cup of tea, this might be your Saturday entertainer. (more)

Naan Sigappu Manithan is a riveting revenge drama

Director Thiru's intelligent screenplay that keeps the audience totally engrossed till the very end. The subject has been well researched and interpreted without being overly sensational or melodramatic.The second half, however, does meander quite a bit before getting back on track.(more)

Despite a novel subject, Naan Sigappu Manithan fails to deliver

Much as you may wrack your brains, you will not be able to link the title, Naan Sigappu Manithan (I Am A Red Man) to the plot. Which, by the way, is a novel. About narcolepsy - a rare sleep disorder where the patient falls asleep at the slightest excitement - the film weaves a love story that turns into a thriller. (more)
