The likes of director Shankar made popular mass themes in Tamil cinema. Fight against the system, corrupt government officials are his pet theme. 

Director Samudhirakani seems to have borrowed a tip or few from Shankar in Nimirndhu Nil. The movie is an individual's fight against corruption. Put down by callous attitude of people against red tapeism and the greed to earn more by bureaucrats, a youngster begins a fight to clean the system. Whether he succeeds or not forms the crux.

As the title suggests, Nimirndhui Nil means stand tall, the movie preaches against bribery in government machinery.  After staying close to reality in the first half, the director seems to have lost track and the second half goes for a toss. 

Jayam Ravi proved that he can excel not only in chocolate-boy roles, he can do action packed stuff with ease. Nimirndhu Nil proves it yet again. Amala Paul, after Thalaiva, is part of Nimirndhu Nil. Soori is fast becoming an all-round actor. Journalist Gopinath chips in with a decent role. Nasser, Sarath Kumar, Thambi Ramiah are also in the cast.

Aravind (Jayam Ravi) is a IT professional who comes to work in Chennai. He gets down seeing the callous attitude of people on the streets. Bribes, corruption for even smaller things turns him off. He lands in trouble for trying to be honest.

He is now compelted to chalk out a strategy and bring to light some corrupt government officials. They fall prey to his tactics. With the help of a journalist, he manages  to succeed in his mission. But trouble comes in the form of his look alike (Narasimha Reddy).

Jayam Ravi has come up trumpos playing a dual role. He is at ease and emotes well. He has enough scope to prove his acting skills. Amala Paul has a meaty role to do. She has few duets to sing with Jayam Ravi. Soori plays Jayam Ravi's friend who help him in his mission.

Music by G V Prakash is okay. Samudhirkani promised aplenty in the first half. But the second half loses The movie promises aplenty in first half. But average later half mars the flow.

Well-begun, half done
