Unbelievably overrated film
9 November 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Dear Madhupal, your film was a failure at the scripting level itself. The characterization was more one dimensional than in a bad Shaji Kailas-Renji Panicker film. The state and the landlords are horrible conspiring fascists. The poor are wretched and helpless. The naxalites are all heroic men. No new ideas here.

Prithviraj pulled off the role of the naxalite physically but the character's cloying humanitarianism got on your nerves after a point. Same was the case with the policeman's (Lal) seemingly unassailable wretchedness and impotence. The cruelty of the landlord (Atul Kulkarni) and the other policemen came across as cartoonish.

The background score was annoying. Yet you kept repeating it ad nauseam. And even worse were the over the top weeping of the women. Jagathi's comedy track added nothing to the movie. In fact, it served as a distraction.

The comparison of Naxal Varghese's life and death to that of Jesus Christ was an interesting idea.

You had an interesting story based on a real life incident. But your unimaginative direction and characterization ruined this film.

Best Regards, Pimpin.
