Real life incident exposed
27 November 2018 | by cinishSee all my reviews

The story of the movie is not something unheard of. But it has been presented from the right perspective - the perspective from which it needs to be seen. Strongly based on a very recent real incident of an orphan being made a convenient scapegoat by the police on a murder case, Madhupal has made some smart commercial cinematic choices to push the movie's appeal. Tovino has been made a strong and well muscled man while still keeping all the innocence and diffidence of the real protagonist. As Tovino hits back on some of the injustices done to him, the viewer feels some delight where as the real life victim enjoys no such frills.

The other choice is to replace the real life male novice lawyer by a female lawyer played by Nimisha. Nimisha and Tovino have both played their roles really well. Police station scenes have been presented convincingly. Action scenes were done very well in a slightly cinematic style.

However, I do not feel that the movie was as good as Ozhimuri for instance(Madhupal's earlier film).

It is good that through the movie, the incident has come to the attention of the public. Hope the real protagonist gets some support from the public and the police's tendency to arrest the "perfect catch" gets a pushback.

I think the greatest contribution by the makers here is that the makers took the initiative and decision to bring this incident to the masses. The presented subject is a wrong trend that has been there for years. May be, Madhupal chose a more commercially appealing approach on this one to get better audience reach.
