Cinematographer - director Jeeva was a name to reckon with in Tamil cinema. Though he has passed away, his legacy seems to be continued by his protege Jeeva Shankar. The latter makes his independent foray as filmmaker with Naan starring music composer Vijay Anthony in the lead role.
A crime thriller Naan speaks about an youth who faces challenges in his life from unexpected quarters that leads him to make a s3erial of murders. The tag line of the movie is that no man is perfect in this world. And so is the male protagonist.
Besides Vijay Anthony, the movie has Rupa Manjeri, Siddharth of Ananda Thandavam fame, Anuya and Vibha in lead roles.
Karthik (Vijay Anthony) is forced to kill his mother for infidelity. He spends the rest of his life in prison and returns only to do an unexpected thing - changing his identity for pursuing his medical course. But that comes with lots of troubles. He overcomes them obviosuly with unexpected acts.
Vijay Anthony lives up to the role. But his emotional outputs are one-dimensional. He is good at action scenes. Siddharth is promising while Roopa gets a meaty role.
The movie has its lacuna but thanks to overall efforts of Vijay Anthony, it is a wonderful watch.
