Neethaane En Ponvasantham

Critics Review


NEP is strictly for VTV fans

Gautham Menon decides to narrate the story in a linear fashion without any gimmicks. He goes through 4 episodes of Varun and Nithya's life (childhood, high school, college and work). In all these situations, they break-up due to minor squabbles.(more)

NEP has its bright moments, but should have been more engaging

Songs of Ilayaraja propel the story forward but for a generation that is edgy and attention challenged, the numerous tracks prove to be a definite distraction.(more)

Intense love story

It is Jiiva and Samantha the lead pair who carries the film with effortless charm and sweetness. They both look good on screen and their banter is cute and fresh. Jiiva has come out with a knockout performance as a happy �go-lucky guy who wakes up to his responsibilities. His dialogue delivery is near-perfect and body language, precise.(more)

The film is youthful and lovely

Eye-pleasing picturisation, ear-pleasing songs and beautiful locations make it a colourful film. The director reminds us of his earlier film Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. However, the subject of Neethane En Ponvasantham is completely different from the Simbu and Trisha's film. (more)

Needhane En Ponvasantham is disappointing

Maestro Ilaiyaraja's score brings back a rush of nostalgia, reminding us of his best works in the 1980s and '90s. Satru Munbu, is especially effective, but where he truly makes his mark is in the background music. (more)

An ode to Ilaiyaraaja

The technicians, like in all Gautham's ventures, are top-notch. The camera by Om Prakash and M.S. Prabhu, the editing by Antony and the lyrics by Na. Muthukumar all contribute handsomely. (more)

An ideal date movie, despite the slow pace and the flaws

Menon has constructed the film almost as a musical, with Ilaiyaraaja's tuneful songs really driving many of its plot points, including the lovely early segment involving Varun and Nithya's school romance. But the problem is that most often the segue between song and scene isn't as smooth as it ideally should be. (more)
