Nenjil Thunivirundhal (Eng: If You Dare) is a 2017 Indian bilingual action drama film written and directed by Suseenthiran. Shot in Tamil and Telugu languages (the latter as C/O Surya), the film features Sundeep Kishan, Mehreen Pirzada, Vikranth and Shathiga in the lead roles, with Soori and Harish Uthaman also in a pivotal role. Featuring music composed by D. Imman, the venture began production in December 2016 and was released on 10 November 2017.
The film’s plot involves elements that we have already seen in a few of Suseenthiran’s films. There’s the simple guy who has to find the hero in himself to protect those close to him, like in Pandiya Nadu. Here, it is Kumar (Sundeep), a youngster who is hoping to complete his MBA, who has to save his friend, Mahesh (Vikranth), with whom he runs a catering service, and his own sister, Anu (Sathiga), a doctor. Mahesh is the friend with a temper, almost a repeat of a similar character from Pandiya Nadu (Vikranth played this role in that film as well).
There is a gang of merciless criminals, just like what we got in Naan Mahaan Alla (Vinod Kishan, one of the bad guys in that film, is also a bag guy). The gang here is headed by the diabolical Durai Pandi (Harish Uthaman), a mercenary. We also get an entirely disposable romantic track, like in Pandiya Nadu and Paayum Puli. In this film, Kumar romances Janani (Mehreen Pirzada, who speaks her lines in anything but Tamil), charmed by her cheating techniques in the exam hall! She appears in couple of scenes and a song and is then forgotten until the epilogue.
