Udayon gave me much more than what I expected. It will certainly be a milestone in Lal's career. I think he has every possibility for a state award this year. I am not going into the details of the story. I think the 1st half mainly contributed to all those negative reviews. But the 2nd half was much better. And Lalettan looks younger in this film.
There was absolutely no kooval inside the theatre. And Kunju's and Jagathy's intros were well applauded by the audience. When the fight sequence between Kunju and Thevar in the climax ended, I could hears youths sitting behind me clap saying "Setup aliya Setup". And when the movie ended, I could hear the person who sat next to me asking his friend - "ee padathinu enthade kozhappam?". If everyone gets this feeling, Udayon will succeed in spite of the negative reviews.
I would say Mohanlal as Shooranad Kunju is the best performance in Malayalam in the recent times. He proves yet again why he is the Udayon of Malayalam Cinema. Even if the movie flops, I am sure his performance will not go unnoticed.
