What is bad:What is bad is everything that was not mentioned in the “what is good” section. The screenplay consists of scenes thrown together and the technical department contributing with their jerky editing and tacky production design. The music and choreography majorly fails to capitalize on the Mumaith’s USP which is her dancing skills. The less said about the acting… the better!!!
Me Thinks:When the audience has a choice of movies like Arundathi, Akasamantha, Manorama which have strong and diverse subjects to choose from, Punnami Nagu seems hopelessly outdated and very heavily dependent on just skin show to bring in the audiences.
Tailpiece: In one of the many absurd scenes in the movie, Mumaith volunteers to do an item number in a nightclub…supposedly to help her father in a police investigation! So much for trying to fit-in item numbers in a different “situation”!!!
