Jayaprakash and Renuka have been denied enough screen space to perform to their potential. Michael struggles in his expressions and Nandita, after her fantastic outing in Mundasupatti, delivers a middling performance. There cannot be doubts about the casting talent but they should be fed with enough space for performance by the director. Narration has nothing new to offer and the makers have to accept the response from the fans for they are the real jurors. Music is scored by Ashwath and “Vadakaiku Koodu” is to listen for and that one is not enough for the music lovers. Overall Nalanum Nandhiniyum suffers scarcity in the narration.
