Ashokism Award 2012 - Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom

Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom - easily my choice for the movie of the year. This is just brilliant ...in every aspect. Debutant director Balaji Tharanitharan has picked a bizarre real life incident and weaved it into a brilliant plot with a near perfect screen play. The movie kept me on the edge and maintained its distinct humour mixed tension throughout. The entire cast is brilliant. Vijay Sethupathi is perfect for the role. His dialogue "enna achhu..." never bores you even after its umpteenth repetition. Bagavathy aka Bugs needs special mention for his brilliant portrayal of himself.
On the whole- A thoroughly enjoyable entertainer. Well done Balaji.

The other interesting or impressive attempts of 2012 are Pizza and Vazakku enn 18/9.
Pa.Ranjith's Attakkathi is another out of the box movie I enjoyed.
