While the audience are exposed to movies usually related to horror, here is a scientific fiction on time travel with a proper logic.
Vishnu Vishal, a VIP in Chennai who is searching for an appropriate job for his career, plays the lead role. Miya George makes her way into the kollywood cinema with her second movie. The time travel begins with the scenes in Chennai in 2065, Arya playing a guest role trying to perform a time travel mission, to solve the problems then. The experiment is done using a dog which sends it back from 2065 to 2015, but the experiment fails and the signal is lost. But this time travel machine appears on the eyes of Vishnu, Karunakaran who is his friend and another person who is a scientist, whom they had met because of an accident. The rest of the story lies on how they make use of this time machine, both positively and negatively and the impact created on their lives due to this time machine. Hip Hop Tamizha as usual has given a beautiful BGM throughout the movie. Combination of Shankar Mahadevan and Adhi in the song "Indru Netru Naalai" has turned out to be a perfect theme song for the movie.
In the first half of the movie they experiment the time traveller machine and learn how to use the time machine which had accidentally come to their hand from their future. They make money which helps Vishnu secure his love by impressing his gf's dad. The scientist who had helped them teach how to use the time travel machine is affected by a high voltage electric shock which makes him bedridden in a coma, while the other two continously make use of the machine for their own benefits. Everything goes on well for them until they use it for helping an old man which accidentally disturbs the past and allows the villian to reappear in the future, who is supposed to be shot dead.
Graphics and cinematography get to play a big role in the success of this movie. The visuals do not seem to be artificial as in any normal movie and are far more realistic. The director has not confused the audience with much scientific and technical explanations and has ensured logic in his script and the movie as a whole turns out to be a fantasy ride. CV Kumar has supported the director and has encouraged such a different and an unconventional script. The first half is a good entertainer with humour here and there, while the second half turns out to be an absolute thriller keeping the audience at the edge of their seats. The nail biting climax is pretty quick and appreciable. All the knots tied in the first half are perfectly untangled in the second half. Overall, Indru Netru Naalai turns out to be a perfect entertainer to watch out this weekend.
