Filled with tense, impeccably crafted action sequences one after the other, Aavesham is a rare breed of an action movie in Malayalam. Jayan battles a tiger, a bear, crocodiles and numerous baddies in this late 70's flick that will have your heart rolling.
The story is just an excuse for Jayan to go wild on any evil. Sheela is Jayan's sister and Ummar is his brother-in-law and M.N.Nambiar is Ummar's boss. The boss wants the employee's wife which ultimately leads to Jayan arriving to save her. What follows is a plot so unbelievable that sometimes you don't understand what's happening. But the actions scenes are top-notch and differ in variety and happens every three minutes or so.
Ummar and Sheela are good in their roles while M.N.Nambiar shines as the villain. The heroines for Jayan do their song and glamour stuff. Cinematography is crazy in this film. Jayan does what he does best in two roles and beats the pulp out of many a living thing. Direction is OK while the editing is pretty sloppy with many parts of the movie long- drawn out. But for action junkies, this one is a treat: An action adventure movie we don't see so often in Malayalam.
