Oru Naal Koothu (One Day's Ado) is a 2016 Indian Tamil-language comedy-drama film directed by Nelson and produced by J. Selva Kumar, featuring Dinesh, Miya and Nivetha Pethuraj in the leading roles. The title references the fuss over the wedding day of an Indian marriage. The film released on 10 June 2016 to positive reviews from critics.
Three young women face unique challenges in their process of getting married, which are very relatable to and typical of the South Indian society.
Rajkumar (Dinesh), who is in love with his colleague Kavya (Nivetha Pethuraj), is reluctant to marry her, owing to her superior economic background. He deliberately delays talks of marriage, asking more time from Kavya to "settle" himself in a well-off position.
Lakshmi (Miya) is visited by several suitors through the course of many years, and every one of them is rejected by her proud, conservative father (Nagineedu), whose greediness makes him wait every time for a better suitor who is par the family's status.
While Bhaskar agrees to marry Susheela (Riythvika), he suddenly gets cold feet and calls off the marriage, insulting Susheela every time she demands an explanation.
The story unfolds, telling how each of the protagonists attempt to fight the dogma of arranged-marriage culture, so deep-rooted in the Indian society. The story is based on the experiences of the director himself.
The production house agreed to finance the film, after gaining profits while working on Dinesh's previous film, Thirudan Police (2014). The film began production in March 2015 in Dindigul, where scenes involving Mia George were shot. Nivetha Pethuraj, a former beauty contestant winner from UAE, was selected to portray another leading female role in the film.
Music and soundtracks were composed by Pannaiyarum Padminiyum fame Justin Prabhakaran. The soundtrack features five songs, the lyrics for which are written by Madhan Karky, Vivek, Veera, Sankar Dass and Gopalakrishna Bharathi. Behindwoods rated the album 3 out of 5 and called it "Justin delivers a soothing album."
