Story: The film chronicles the ascent of Padmanabhan (Dileep) who becomes a mayor and fights corruption.

Review: Of late, Dileep's acting has become a reminder that is rarely sweet and often tedious. His playful ebullience befits an ever-lovable child with bright eyes and plump cheeks. But when it fades away to uninspiring machismo, memories of old genre - where male leads cosset multiple heroines and cudgel hefty goons - seep in like scum from a leaking drainage.

Nadodi Mannan is one such film where Dileep unabashedly flirts with mediocrity. The film is about a wayward youth summoning courage and picking up values as though hit by a thunderbolt. Krishna Poojapura while writing the script has no apparent reservations on creating stereotypes.

Dileep plays Padmanabhan, a name palpably inspired by the screen writer's unbridled proclivity towards Thiruvananthapuram. He mobilises men for processions irrespective of political parties. One fine day, he is enlightened.

A dumpy hospital ward is transformed into heaven. He is adored by pretty girls and revered by others and the hero is born. The events include confronting a business giant with mean motives, getting thrashed by cops in a police station all add up and Padmanabhan becomes the mayor of the city.

Ananya, Archana Kavi and Mythili are confined to silly-looking caricatures. Ananya plays Meera, a brash girl who is smitten by the mighty hero. Dileep's knack for the comic appears jaded and his bloated machismo is flimsy.

Nadodi Mannan tends to rely heavily on a series of computer generated images that are stitched together to glorify the hero as though earlier attempts had drawn a blank. The film is a dull affair with the script hardly offering anything new for the director or the actor to work on, let alone produce a faint smile.
