Critics Review


Faithful Recreation of a Dream

The film is a faithful remake of 'Lucia'. While the many justifications for the two different looks of Siddharth hold true, it still does leave a gaping hole. And if you are attentive you could probably guess the climax because of this and you cannot understand how the makers either missed it or went ahead with it. Apart from this the film is carefully and neatly recreated and should be a treat to those who yearn for thinking cinema. (more)

Engaging tale of dream and reality

When a film maker adopts a non-linear strategy to convey his intent, screenplay and editing becomes the biggest challenge, Enakkul Oruvan's crisp editing and engaging screenplay plays the key. Siddharth is sleep deprived, an insomniac who comes across an illegal drug gangster who gives him a pill that would entice him to a fantasy world.(more)

An Engaging Trip

Screenplay plays a major role in any movie and more so in Enakkul Oruvan. A complicated screenplay is neatly pulled off and yet it succeeds in confusing the general audience in parts. But that's where the film demands your complete concentration and keeps you hooked throughout.(more)

A knockout conceit, a middling movie

One must hand it to Siddharth. For an actor whose successes have come mostly from playing characters in a narrow bandwidth (Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi, Rang De Basanti), he sure keeps trying to cover the spectrum. His earnestness is touching � it�s like watching one of those Oscar-ready, inspirational, against-all-odds movies where someone learns to overcome a handicap by sheer determination and positivity.(more)
