Nanban - Movie Review

*No spoiler*

When I heard months back about Vijay performing the role of Aamir Khan in 3 idiots, I was a bit doubtful how it would turn out to be and so was is with Srikanth playing Maddy's role especially because I loved 3 Idiots to the level that it would be one of my all time favourite movie.

I am a huge fan of Vijay, but still I kept wondering how well Nanban would materialize and all my doubts were answered when I came out happy and smiling out of the theatre.

The cast in Nanban was brilliant, especially after seeing each of their performance :) The movie happened to be a scene by scene clone from 3 idiots, however after the first ten mins into the movie I totally lost the feel of it being a remake. Each of the actors took the show by a storm..

I still like 3 idiot .5% more than Nanban. But, Nanban is an awesome movie !!

When I was browsing through channels in TV today, just came across a show in which they were showing the making of the movie Nanban .. I was totally in awe thinking about the beautiful locations, where they had shot the "aska laska" song, they looked so pristine and unspoiled.

A kind of movie that I can see many many times and still not get enough of it :)

Don't miss watching the movie, I am sure you will enjoy it !

if you forget 3 idiots and watch this, it's enjoyable. Of course, dialogues in Tamil add to the fun esp Sathyan's Teacher's day speech :))
I liked the cast in 3 idiots better (sorry Shalu...can't stand vijay) and who was the heroine??? were they trying to find a look alike for Kareena Kapoor ?!?!?! waste!!
Best part of the movie...Sathyan and his speech :)

the Tamil version of the teacher's day speech was disgusting.

Vijay cannot copy Amir, he should have used his own style.

Shankar should have used some creativity.

3 Idiots was awesome. and Nanban in my opinion was a just pass.

@Sheila I enjoyed watching Nanban :) except for the first few minutes where I couldn't help but make scene by scene comparison with 3 idiots !!

I didn't literally understand the Hindi version of the teacher's day speech because of my language constraints ;) but the Tamil one was funny too !!
