There was rush aplenty at PVR for second show last night. Lots of school going kids in for movies. Nowadays I book blindly for Tovino movies. He is that good. And of course Madhupal was directing it. So it was worth the visit.
The movie was slower than what I anticipated, especially in the first half, however being a crime thriller, it does begin to pick pace in the second half. Stellar performance yet again from Tovino. Pretty much everybody else is second fiddle in the movie. I am not a great fan of Nimisha, but she had a lovely role in this one. Many might appreciate the levels of her acting, though I felt, more justice could have been done.
Stalwarts like Nedumudi Venu and Siddique leave lasting effects with their roles, but the prime purpose the movie serves is in addressing a lot of social issues.
The movie does perpetrate a motion of distrust in the investigating agencies of the nature and takes sides with innocents who get trapped in the beautifully crafted case diaries.
It’s a one time watch and I would give it 3 on 5.
