Review: Naaigal Jaakirathai is a dog's show all the way. Naaigal Jaakirathai is a decent entertainer that portrays the heartwarming bond between a police officer and his adorable dog, says. S Saraswathi. Actor Sibiraj is back with a comedy thriller, Naaigal Jaakirathai, fter a gap of four years. Produced by his father Sathyraj under the banner of Nathambal Film Factory, the highlight of Naaigal Jaakirathai is the antics of a Belgian Shepherd dog called Idoh. Idoh has been given priority over Sibiraj in the opening credits and quite rightly so, since the pooch plays a significant role, appearing in almost every frame. Sibi seems perfectly happy playing second fiddle. Subramani (Idoh) is a highly trained military dog, whose owner, an army officer, was shot dead.
The dog is returned to the officer’s father in Coimbatore. The father is a neighbour of a police officer, Karthik (Sibiraj). Karthik is recuperating from a gunshot wound to his leg - - the result of a shootout with ruthless kidnappers. Circumstances force Karthik to take on the responsibility of Subramani after the death of his neighbour. He is extremely reluctant to do so initially, but soon begins to adore the dog. While Subramani is trying to fill the void left by his master, Karthik is trying to cope with the loss of his good friend who was killed in the shootout.
The two become inseparable. Anbu (Balaji Venugopal), the mastermind behind the kidnapping ring returns to abduct Karthik's wife Renu (Arundhati). Subramani and Karthik must find Renu before she is killed. The plot is simple and the director has chosen to stick to the basics. The narrative lacks the nail- biting tension essential to a good thriller. But that is not to say that the film is not enjoyable. A good portion of the film is dedicated to highlighting the bond between Sibi and his canine companion, and their clowning around seems natural and puts a smile on your face.
Despite his wooden expression, Sibiraj comes through. The role seems tailor- made for him. He has quite successfully imitated his legendary father. However, the film is the dog's show all the way. His pranks are adorable and so are his expressions, which are perfectly captured by cinematographer Nizar. Editor Praveen has not only cleverly maintained the pace of the film, but wrapped it up in just an hour and 5. Idoh does everything expected from the regular filmy hero.
He chases bad guys, is funny, romantic and good in the action scenes. There is no doubt that Idoh is a great entertainer, but a more realistic and intelligent approach by the director could have taken the film to a different level. Whatever its faults, director Shakti Soundar Rajan's Naaigal Jaakirathai is a decent fun- filled entertainer.

New tamil movie comedy Description: subscribe channel : https://goo.gl/VmdWdD facebook : https://goo.gl/Aohdop Naaigal Jaakirathai (English: Beware of Dogs) is a 2014 Indian Tamil comedy.
Critics have stated that the film is a regular revenge drama but is engaging with an impressive performance by Sibiraj and Idoh. The chemistry between the hero and the dog is the major highlight of the film. The technical aspects of the film, including the BGM by Dharan Kumar, Nizar Shafi's cinematography and Praveen KL's editing have fetched positive feedback from the critics. Check below the review roundup of . The screenplay was coherent and gripping.
The cute portions between Sibi and Idoh and the ferocious side of Idoh was neatly portrayed. There was this sense of connectivity between the scenes.
Every scene had an important role to play and there were not many slack portions. Overall, a very well written script.
It's not very often we witness dog- centric films in Tamil cinema. The premise is intriguing. The execution is not so cliff- hanging but is nevertheless satisfying. A little more tightening of the screws and the bark would have been more loud and clear. Being passionate to dogs comes naturally to dog lovers, and given that Sibi owns three, it would have taken him a lot to act as though he is scared of the dog on screen. The screen sports Sibi as a chic and fit police officer, perfectly complimenting as a German Shepherd owner.
Idoh, on the other hand, is a real hero and actor. Kudos to his trainer and his quick grasping capabilities.
Naaigal Jaakirathai's major strength is the dog Idoh and the interesting elements surrounding it, once the main plot gets unleashed we are left only with abrupt narrations.
