Bangalore Naatkal Tamil Movie Review, Rating

What Is Good

  • Cinematography
  • Music

What Is Bad

  • Casting
  • Artificial scenes
Bottom Line: Casting spoils the show !


Bangalore Days begins with an intro from Bobby Simhaa introducing himself and his cousins Sri Divya and Arya who share a very friendly relationship right from the childhood.They get separated after their schooling but are reunited at Bangalore after the marriage of Divya to Rana Daggubati. The story revolves around how their life turns at Bangalore. The movie was already a huge hit at Malayalam and most of us would have watched it already. So how has it worked with a new casting ? Is the magic done once again or has it been a disaster for the Tamil version ? Let's see.

Star Performance

Casting is the disaster zone for this remake. Arya in shoes of Dulquer Salman alone did justice. Simhaa as Nivin Pauly ?? Holy Mother of God ! It was horrendous. Simhaa's body language and attitude never matched 0.01% of what Nivin Pauly did. Sorry Simhaa, you may be National Award winner. But this role needs more soul into it. Sri Divya is gorgeous, but even she fails to reprise role of Nazriya. The gap between drama and comedy should always be maintained and that is where the movie failed. The movie has lots of actors and we wonder how many are yet to come. 

Techinical Team

The Original version was full of life. But here that life is missing. The movie is incorporated with appreciable transitions, commendable drollery, a congenial run time of more than 150 minutes and one of the most pleasurable story lines. But the movie failed in casting department. Gopi Sunder who produced soul stirring songs for the original has produced average numbers here. K.V.Guhan's cinematography was attractive and colourful. The lightings were so natural and the beautiful scenario of Bengaluru was well captured through his lens. He is the backbone of the movie. Marthand K. Venkatesh has worked on editing. The movie definitely needed lots of cuts. Most of the scenes were dragging. Editing and Cinematography departments have definitely aced at their respective jobs. All the locations from Tamil Nadu and Bangalore have been impeccably put on the big screen.


The movie portrays in a way that Bangalorians only speak English or Hindi and people even lock their lips mid way ! Then we start to observe the story itself which has fabrications everywhere written on it in the last 25 minutes. All it shows can never happen in real life and people who think can are being fooled. Maybe the imagination got too much out of the box. Once again the script was made out of clichés, stereotype-busters and surrealistic contrivance.
