  1. first of all this movie gives us a good relif and all the praise,the movie is getting is completely based on two factor-prithviraj and 2nd half. direction-jeethu Joseph is not complete let down,but reducing of the family emotional drama could be able to make it a fine thriller.

    performance-prithviraj is the hero,Wat a splendid performance after superb mumbai police.

    story-the first half of the movie is completely on family drama and could makes you little bored……. but just before the intreval portion,the movie becomes a superb thriller.

    totally,its one of finest thrillers in last few years alongside(grandmaster,mumbai police……but it could the best thriller if it was executed in little more carefully……..

    but a pleasant watch…

  2. I can say there is something big inside it. Jeethu Joseph made it good including some special animation sequences. But some point it felt ingenuity to some actions, the first one I felt is in the action sequences. Though Good background score (Title presentation), finished thread.

    You must concentrate on the dialogue flow and execution. From some people felt it awkward and its better to explain details in a variety manner in terms of detailing the findings by Sam; also nobody except a superior police officer knows nothing about an investigation and Aravindakshamenon IPS seems to be an idiot as a police officer at certain points. Hope you will concentrate of the physics laws while making up the fight sequences. 😉 We expect more realistic scenarios. I really likes your presentation because no super hero activities. Just tried to told the story in a perfect way and you almost succeed it.

    This is a good one, really good one for the Malayalam Movie industry. Keep up and all the best.

  3. The Film is indeed one of the brilliant Indian thrillers made till date with a tinge of romance, drama and neo noir by director Jeethu Joseph (shares my birthday!) after giving all hit films "Detective" (2007), "Mummy and Me" (2010) and "My Boss" (2012) in his career which has shades of films like "Windstruck" (Korea/2004) and "Talaash" (2012) which scores full marks in it's original and taut screenplay (Joseph), the characters who are warm and humane, the brilliant editing by John Kutty which plays a pivotal role in maintaining the chills and thrills in some of the scenes brilliantly edited by him and the music score by Sejo John and Anil Johnson which is equally pivotal and instrumental as the editing in the film. The cinematography by Sujith Vaassudev is brilliant. The flaw in the film, lies in the melodrama, the dialogue scenes which could have been crisper and the visual effects which actually somewhere, look a bit awkward. In the performances, Mia George, Srijeeth Ravi and Vijayaraghavan are brilliant. The others are good and Prithviraj churns out yet another brilliant performance after a spate of his marvelous performances in films like "Celluloid" and 'Mumbai Police", which has shades of Aamir Khan (Sarfarosh and Talaash), Shahrukh Khan (Devdas) and Abhay Deol (Dev D). Overall, director Joseph's narration maintains a good hold over his narration with a killer climax in the end, making the film a must watch. My rating would be: 4/5

  4. I had not seen this movie till DVD reached the stores. I saw this movie because all were hailing this is absolutely new theme and not copied from any movie. I loved the opening sequence and the theme music superbly done and executed , the frames had similarity to some PC games but well executed. The movie also starts exceptionally good. Prithviraj did justice to the character but the role of Mia was not actually required at all. I could easily predict the climax as it was associated to women and their husbands, wherein Sam Alex's brother's marriage or the fiancée is not shown at all. The hangings and execution were almost similar to Angels and Demons where the public hangings and message written in old language. Even the places where they are left forms a cross type format and this is also taken from Dan Brown's Angels And Demons. Except for the villain everything else is shown in such a way that we are able to co relate to the Dan Brown's novel. The Direction part is done well. I wrote this review just to bring into movie lover's notice that there are lots of INSPIRED(as they like to call now) portions from Dan Brown's Angels And Demons.
