After 5 years of its release and initial hatred towards the movie, I was awestruck by the brilliance of this movie which was sadly ignored by critics and masses at the time of its release. But after watching many more movies in the last five years, I can say Udayon is one of the finest works in the last decade of Malayalam cinema. This may seem like a blind overstatement; but this movie received brickbats for not being the movie everyone wanted. No one took the movie for what it is: an engrossingly character study of a deeply flawed protagonist played by Mohanlal. Although the director falters in many scenes by incorporating unwanted humor, songs and additional characters, the central premise is intriguing as any other great movie. Don't expect the usual entertainer
take the movie for what it is and I for one, found myself mesmerized
by this movie. The technical department and acting department do their jobs well. Mohanlal, Bindu Panikker and Manoj K Jayan are at their top of games in this movie.
