Neeye En Kadhali's sole objective is to survive.

The opening and closing scenes of 'Neeye en Kadhali' are set at the same venue with the same character in pretty much the same situation. This is a trick to make you think that, by the end, loose ends have been tied up. An unrelated pop track floats behind both, the opening and ending credits. This is an attempt to influence your opinion when you're just about to make your verdict. Too late. Half way through this two hour movie you're ready to tear the screen apart. The first half hour is funny even with the countless flaws. But within the next fifteen minutes you realize that the film's sole objective is to survive. How such movies find producers baffles me.
Well, take a look at the film's story. Guy wants to marry girl. Girl puts him in touch with her father. Guy's friend is a conman. Girl's father offers fifty lakhs dowry but demands that the bride's face be covered by hanging threads of flowers during the occasion. Something fishy, the film says. Okay, so you wait. Guy finds out on his first night that he was conned into marrying the girl's frenzied and retarded sister. Zzzz. Then a music number. Simply narrating the story is painful. Having to see and infer the events as they unfold is harrowing. Anyway, the music number fades out to a breakfast scene with all of them exchanging dialogues about how the chutney tastes. Zzzzzz. All this builds up to their double-date honeymoon, where the guys decide to murder her. When that fails, they entrap her into the sets of a blue film. It is movies like these that remind me that I have to stick by the rules and refrain from profanity. And it makes me feel imprisoned as a critic. @#$%*^*$#%.
