Excellent
22 June 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies in recent Malayalam cinema (which is not saying much), Nayakan is a blacker than black revenge drama with exceptional production values. The ensemble cast are all top-notch with Indrajit standing out as the 'Nayakan' with a brilliant performance. It is sad he is yet to be noticed by the mainstream crowd even though more talented than his star brother, Prithviraj. Although one can argue about the strength of the script, it is Lijo Jose Pellisery's innovative direction that makes this one the winner it is. Cinematography by VTV fame Manoj Paramahamsa oozes atmosphere in each frame sucking you in this world which is strangely realistic and surreal at the same time. Combine all the above factors with an excellent BGM, crisp editing and well choreographed fights, you've a treat in your hands. Nayakan is a movie to be watched by anyone who loves Malayalam movies or any movie, for that matter.
