CRITICS REVIEW

'Nadodimannan' tells the story of how a common man, one day becomes the mayor of capital city & the troubles he face, for doing good to the people.

Padmanabhan, a village youth who earns his living by supplying 'people' to public meetings, mass gatherings etc. At one such occasion he gets stuck up in Trivandrum city and gets involved with the local king  Purushothaman which changes his life for ever. In an unexpected series of events, he gets elected the Mayor of the city. The rest of the film deals with how Padmanabhan cleans up the city.

The film was promoted as Dileep's mass-comedy entertainer delivers its promise in the first half.
But over second half we feels that we are waiting “Runway or Lion”. But somehow its more lagging second part ends with no confusion. There is lots of repetition as like previous movie “Sringaravelan”.

Dileep has done a good job, his character in the beginning showed promise which couldn't be kept in the later half. Siyaji Shinde has made a good Mollywood debut as villain, major thanks to the dubbing artist. Out of the female leads Ananya gets more scenes, in 99% of which she has to do the same thing - shout or doubt. 
Dileep may regrets to select this script.
