A slice of life drama that is low key and yet entertaining

As the title suggests, the film is about the hero deciding to stand up and fight for something. But the film as such reserves very little time for this conflict and what we have is a slice of life drama that is more about the characters and their interactions.

Even with its unhurried pace, Nimir stands tall with its natural flow! Fix yourself to watch a simple yet genuine movie and you are sure to enjoy Nimir.

Nimir, though, has an intensity that would attract all kinds of watchers, even if it might seem a little less entertaining due to its offbeat pattern that stands out from commercial mass-driven films.

Go for it to enjoy some clean comedy and a rural story that comes after a long time

Director Priyadarshan's caliber is evident in the father -son relationship and both the characters arc pertaining to it.

Stunning visuals make up for insipid drama in this Udhayanidhi Stalin film

Nimir is the remake of Fahadh Faasil's Maheshinte Prathikaaram. Except for teasing with stunning visuals, thanks to cinematographer NK Ekambaram, it fails to recreate the magic created by the original.(more)
