Sivakarthikeyan and Pandiraj's Namma Veetu Pillai is set in a genre which will be appealing to audiences of all age groups. Produced by Sun Pictures, the film has delivered what is expected of a good commercial entertainer and more.

The film starts with the character establishment from Bharathiraja's (eldest person of the big family this film revolves around) point of view, with character traits for each of main family members, which is maintained and justified throughout the film.

Instead of taking a solid conflict throughout the film (which is the usual way in family based commercial films) the story keeps proceeding with new struggles and conflicts. A simple story line have majorly worked well, as the film packs a punch in all the other crucial elements like comedy and emotions.

The first half is engaging with back to back quick one-liner comedies which worked well and a special mention to the boy who played Soori's child 'Mundhirikotta' (yes, that's what he's called throughout the film). He scores more applause than Soori and Yogi Babu. Soori's timing comedy works good in NVP, but SK's troll dialogue on Soori's 'timing' clicks big time.

The flashback sequence which sheds more light on Sivakarthikeyan family's past, might not look completely satisfying to a few set of audiences, but Samuthirakani delivers his usual best in the short role. Actors RK Suresh, Subbu Panchu Arunachalam, Vela Ramamurthy, Archana, Aadukalam Naren and many other strong supporting roles add good values to the story.

Nirav Shah provides the necessary rich visuals to the rural drama. Imman's heavy background music during the mass fights and poignant peaks, elevates the emotions which is supplied with the support of good acting and set-up. The songs worked well in the first half, but in the second half, the song sequences are not very engaging, as the film moves slowly, making you restless for the songs to end. 'Enga Annan' and 'Unkooda Porakanum' songs worked well visually.

A core conflict or goal missing among the lead characters might reduce the interest factor for the audience eventually, but the screenplay with regular emotional scenes keep the audience engaging. Natarajan's (Natty) powerful performance shines more in the second-half of the film.

Pandiraj, once again delivers a film with the importance of families, and the significance of the bond shared between relatives are shown amazingly with ample convincing dialogues and emotional scenes in the film. The much talked about brother-sister chemistry between SK and Aishwarya is very convincing and impactful. Overall, Namma Veetu Pillai is an engaging commercial entertainer, with ample emotions and admirable drama.


Verdict: Namma Veetu Pillai engages with strong emotions and family values.

இப்படி படம் பண்ண தைரியம் வேணும்..- SIVAKARTHIKEYAN LATEST SPEECH | TN VIDEOS



Review by : Behindwoods Review Board
Album Release Date : Aug 31,2019

1. Yenga Annan
Singers - Nakash Aziz, Sunidhi Chauhan
Lyricist - Vignesh Shivan

This is a peppy number sung by two masters of the genre Nakash Aziz and Sunidhi Chauhan in Imman’s music. Just as the name suggests, the song entirely dwells on the relationship between the lead brother-sister duo. The song is presented as a musical duologue between the two siblings, both enumerating the best aspects of each other and how they wish to share the same affectionate relationship even in their next birth. The music is loaded with a heavy punch of the orchestra with Electric, Acoustic and Bass guitars by Keba Jeremiah, Indian Percussions conducted by Kaviraj and Stringed instruments by Seenu. The lyrics penned by Vignesh Shivan perfectly conveys the bonding well.


2. Mailaanji
Singer -
Pradeep Kumar, Shreya Ghoshal
Lyricist - Yugabharathi

Mailaanji is a song that has a highly romantic sway over its listener, in the voices of Pradeep Kumar and Shreya Ghoshal. Imman’s every film that has a trademark passionate love song and this song does rise itself to that. The lyrics by Yugabharathi has as usual intricately woven itself around the music, with its pace matching the tune of the song as melodiously as possible. The song packs the complete feelings of the lovers with the help of the wonderful lyrics and the tune. There are certain interludes with choruses that sound little grained, otherwise, the guitar tones in the background are downright delightful and pleasant.


3. Unkoodave Porakanum (Male) 
Singer - Sid Sriram
Lyricist - GKB

Unkoodave Porakanum just extends the first line of the song, completely explaining the reasons why the brother feels so emotionally attached with his sister. Sung by Sid Sriram, the song is in a neutral beat, not too slow not too fast, which makes one bob their head to the beat while taking in the lovable lyrics that so subtly tells the terms of endearment between the siblings. The music is uplifted by the usage of the classical instruments Nadaswaram, Kanjeera, Tavil, and Pambai. The guitars and the Woodwinds together give life to the soulful words by Lyricist GKB.


4. Unkoodave Porakkanum (Female) 
Singer - Shashaa Tirupati
Lyricist - GKB

This again is the previous song’s female version sung by Shashaa Tirupati and lyrics is by GKB. There is a piece of lush rich music in this version and has a floating shade to the music which may be due to the woodwinds by Nathan and the Indian percussions conducted by Kaviraj.


5. Gaandakannazhagi
Singers -
Anirudh Ravichander, Neeti Mohan
Lyricist - Sivakarthikeyan

This energizing number in the voices of Anirudh Ravichander and Neeti Mohan with the words written by Sivakarthikeyan, has every listener tap their legs to the beat. Definitely with highest scope of dance moves, the tune of the song is loaded completely by Additional Synth (D.Imman), Sarangi (Manonmani), Nadaswaram (Balasubramani), Guitars (Keba Jeremiah), Percussions (Kaviraj) and hence the notch of the beat is up. Just like most fast-paced songs, this track has a beat rap interlude with unintelligible words that can get popular with the grand visuals.


6. Jigiri Dosthu
Singers -
Puduvaisithan Jayamoorthy, Anthakudi Ilayaraja
Lyricist - Arunraja Kamaraj

Jigiri Dosthu is a song that makes its musical entrance dramatically with the audio at the beginning celebrating the tune. The lyrics by Arunraja Kamaraj explain that the celebration is of friendship and the friends who always help upheave and uphold the welfare of each other. The song blasts this wonderful relationship in the voices of Puduvaisithan Jayamoorthy and Anthakudi Ilayaraja. The orchestra well coordinates with the other aspects of the song and it’s a perfect mixture of fun, facts, music and masti.


7. Namma Veetu Pillai (Theme)
Lyricist -
Arunraja Kamaraj

This musical well exhibits the main idea of the movie on who is and why the lead is everyone’s favorite. The important aspect of the theme song is the Trumpet and trombone music by Maxwell as it is the most upfront sound that appears in this track. The Indian Percussions by Kaviraj and guitars by Keba Jeremiah are in the backdrop but the main highlight is the trumpet-trombone music. The sharpness of the track intended is subjacent but understandable.

Verdict: Imman delivers another rural-celebratory commercial album with appealing tunes and lyrics high on family values and bonding!
