Not one to shy away from experimenting or working on an unexplored genre, actor Vijay Sethupathi strikes again with his latest Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren. Directed by debutant Arumugakumar, the movie features an ensemble star cast, including Gautham Karthik, Niharika Konidela, Gayathrie and Ramesh Thilak, among others. Interestingly, many of the cast members have already worked with Vijay Sethupathi before.
As is evident from the posters and the teasers, Vijay Sethupathi plays Yaman, chief of a tribe that lives in Andhra Pradesh but speak Tamil. He is given the intriguing tag of being an ‘organic thief’ and his dialogues from the movie were viral long before its release.
The soundtrack by Justin Prabhakaran has already created waves among the audience. In particular, the song Yae Elumba Enni Enni, likely to feature Vijay Sethupathi in tribal attire, is already ruling the charts. According to sources, Vijay Sethupathi dons 8 different avatars in the movie. Gautham Karthik plays the role of a carefree college goer and does not get along with Vijay Sethupathi’s character in the movie. What happens after the two meet is the storyline.
Vijay Sethupathi already has a massive fan following and is known for choosing fresh and interesting scripts. He had put up a tweet thanking all his fans and supporters for the love before the release of his movie.
#ONNPS from tomorrow in theatres near you, watch it if you got time, thanks for all the love and support as always my dear fans
Love you all ❤️

#OruNallaNaalPaathuSolren #ONNPS – Wacky, outlandish comedy. Experimental attempt by @aaru7cs, set in the forest & city. All actors have done well. #Niharika makes a confident debut. @Gautham_Karthik‘s over the top funny antics & #VijaySethupathi‘s dialogues, makeovers stand out!

#OruNallaNaalPaathuSolren interval – Some makers say that they have tried differently and do nothing. But @Aaru7Cs is bold enough to come up with a really different movie. Enjoying every bit of it. Not sure how Vijay Sethupathi selects such different / Fresh scripts 👌👌👌

Almost different getup in every scene #VJS👏. Grand sets and Characters pave way for a excellent comedy ride 🤐. But badly misfired 😭. #Karthik and #Daniel saved it to a large extent😍. #Niharika 👌. Omelette comedy #Balaji the only saviour 👏. #ONNPS – ethuku 🤦♂️🤦♂️

#ONNPS Interval – Vijay Sethupathi as always with his magnanimous screen presence and natural acting keeps the viewers interested. Good support by @Gautham_Karthik too. Danny is the surprise package. His one liners evoke good laughter. Action shifts to ‘Yamasingapuram’ now.

#ONNPS review – #VijaySethupathi is getting monotonous and trying to be safe by repeating the same body language and mannerism in all his recent movies. Expecting more from this fabulous actor. One stretch in this movie is ultimatte and crowd is roaring for that @Aaru7Cs

#ONNPS 1st half – ‘Sincere Comedy’ genre working decently so far. #VijaySethupathi with his versatile getups eases in the ‘Thief’ role. The trio Danny, Ramesh, Das along with Gautham provide solid support.The story revealing ‘Jungle’ portions coming up in 2nd half.#HTCReview
