Nanban Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Pavithra Srinivasan Site:Rediff
In many ways Nanban isn't really about events, plot-points or sudden twists; it's the story of two friends who see light in their lives through another. Vijay as Paari is the life and soul of the story.You do see shades of the Hindi remake, but it has Shankar's touches as well. Logic does go for a toss at times; there are moments when everything is too syrupy-sweet. The pace is jerky, and the voice-overs don't really serve much purpose. And yet, it offers hope, and the promise of everything turning out good in the end. It's perfect feel-good fare. And Vijay is at his best. Worth a watch.

as Nanban, Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots remake avoids stereotypes and goes for characters and situations that are familiar in our lives! It is a film about the importance of basic goodness and it is packaged with mass songs which will suit the palate of Tamil audiences.Shankar the showman of south has left his huge canvass aside and attempted to make something different, probably his first remake which has no larger-than-life hero or massive sets. It's a breezy entertainer and it's got its heart in the right placeIn the end, Nanban is an engaging film with noble intentions. It deserves viewing because films like this are hard to find.Don't miss this film.

Shankar's Nanban, the Tamil version of Bollywood film 3 Idiots, has hit the screens. The much-awaited movie is a package of fun, twists, good songs, story, crisp dialogues, and last but not the least - a serious message that will make the youths to watch it again and again.One can hardly find out flaws in Nanban because the story does not give you a minute time to find the errors that divert your attention. When the movies are limited to two-hour plus, Nanban amazingly takes you on a long-journey without getting noticed. The film not only entertains but sends out a strong message to the current generation.

Nanban marks the return of Shankar to a youth oriented film after Boys, that was eight years back. It also marks the return of Vijay to a completely youth centric college goer role. And boy, haven’t they gone all out to make it a success. We don’t see Vijay in the movie, it is only Panchavan Parivendhar! He has given himself completely to the role, surrendering to the demands of the script.Nanban has got more than something for everyone. It is very unlikely that a person finds such a wholesome package unsatisfying. Yes, Vijay does not show any heroism; he gives it all up for the integrity of the script. But, fans, don’t be disheartened, because what you get it lieu more than makes up for it. If you haven’t seen Three Idiots, Nanban will be an absolutely joyful experience. And if you have seen it, still go for Nanban and relive the magic; it’s worth it.

A winner is already in Shankar's hands in the form of Three idiots. He seems to have made it crisply to suit Tamil audience. He has not made any big changes to the script and struck to the original. With Vijay underplaying his emotions and the star cast around playing their part well, Nanban ends up a sweet friend who you love to meet in your life daily.

  1. its very use full to youths.its very entertainment movie

  2. sama film..tharu maru now gettin addicted to vijay..though am ajith fan..vijay rocks

  3. mega hit in 2012 hats off to nanban team

  4. extrodinary and interesting always the best hero. vijay rockzzzzzzz

  5. excellent movie , great work buy shankar and vijay

  6. It's a page by page copy of 3 idiots, Not happy with Shankar's take on it, expected his touch, but still it is Rajkumar Hirani's Flim.

  7. More than reviewing as a fan, can anyone give a fair review

  8. i thought it was a complete copy of the original.... nothing changed.. not that i was expecting changes.... even the dialogues were word for word the same.... vijay tried hard but i guess AAmir Khan wins a thumbs up....

  9. Nice movie, a nice pongal treat.... Good performance from Vijay, Jeeva and Shrikanth.... Shankar ROCKS!!!! NANBAN ROCKS!!!! It is very hard to get a success from a remake but this movie is running successfully.

  10. i like this movie...minus points are removing pants and showing underwear all times will make us very irritating...this shows shankar has not changed his attitude from boys..another minus, shankar showing dark ladies as a comic..this is racism..this prooves he didnt change his attitude from sivaji(angavai and sangavai)...also vijay looks old for that like simbhu would have much fit into that...any is joyfull movie

  11. dai naaya sombu va ella compare panada.. oru osthi a podum...

  12. What a fake review... Head weight wapmaster in this site... Mariyathaya review (4.5/5)change pannu... Nanban is a fantastic movie. And all blogs gives superb ratings and comments... Ungalukku porama da vijay hat-trick blockbuster hit vaangunathuku... Users dont beleive this.. This is a fake site.. Pls leave dis site

  13. Nanban is extrodinary. Worth watching movie. I can give rating 5 out of 5. Vijay rocks..looks like college going guy. This site is totally fake. Go and watch the move. U will come to know the real success...

  14. Shankar & Vijay Sir, as per direction, acting and other technical efforts, financial budget are well and good. i agree as a fan of new stories, techical and way of screen play. But its a remake of 3 idiots, so nothing special..only the cast. you will not win all times, this time vijay is not fit for your movie, any body can fit like at the last of Mounaguru Hero Arulnidhi, you made a mistake of using vijay, he is a great actor,valuable hero, dancer, you did a comedy on him. you failed. Sathyan 35%+Geeva 25%+Sathyaraj 20%+Srikanth 15% + Vijay 10% = 100%, note it down vijay is only you used as a mass hero thats it. Also music is very bad, Harris please rework.. Shankar we love your new findings, try again, never lose it again, mass heros knocks only once, not like our thalaivar Super Star.

  15. Vijay did well...... He proved that he can also do better acting spot...... Simbu - useless actor i ever seen in cinema industry.....

    Vikram - AWESOME actor
    Surya - Excellent actor
    Vijay - Suberb actor
    Ajith - Notable actor
    Dhanus - Peculiar actor
    Simbu - Useless

  16. Im ilakkia.i watched 3idiots and nanban in theatre.Though nanban is a remake of 3idiots,Shankar ha given his best part.A remake movie will ve its own ups and downs.In this movie too,some portions didnt touch heart.
    But really a an awesome movie to watch.If ur going to theatre to watch,please throw 3idiots behind if u ve seen that already and watch will be a big treat to u.
    all actors ve done their parts very well...It will be a very good break for vijay.Atleast from now he can choose some good movies...jiiva as usually rocked...Srikanth was too good in bringing emotions.
    But satyaraj's part is little dissapointing when compared to hindi......
    All over,its a wondeful movie to watch with family and friends....after a long time we ve got a colorful movie to see on screen...
    well done...nanban team

  17. Nanban-All is well for indian cinema .anyone who criticise or compare 3idiots don't do like that bcoz shankar only directs the film he done a very gud job and vijay I SAW A SUPERB ACTOR IN INDIAN CINEMA ESPECIALLY TAMIL CINEMA "THALAIVA UR GREAT".Really he is great.awesome and marvellous performance.jiiva as usuall srikanth is back in the film he is rocked especially he make everyone cry in second half.sathyaraj sir he also done gud.sathyan marvellous performance than omi vaidya who played in original.sathyan sir ur acting is wonderful.ileana cute and gud performance.anuya also acted very well.congratulations to nanban team
