An interesting start that lost its way
20 May 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In Malayalam cinema Sathyan Anthikad has carved a niche for himself over the last 3 decades or so with some brilliantly crafted movies.

In Oru Indian Pranayakatha, the start and feel of the movie is splendid with politics as the background, where Sidharthan (Fahad Faasil) is trying to give his best (with all the tricks of the trade) to get the District President post of the political party.

However, as the movie progresses there is a twist in the tale. Irene Gardner (Amala Paul), a Canadian citizen of Malayali origin, who is shooting a documentary, is looking for an assistant, and circumstantial twists leads Sidharthan offering to help her.

The movie then changes from the political scenario to that of Irene's personal quest and secrets from her past.

Here is where the film loses connection.

There is a marked difference between the settings and story of first half and the second that one wonder's why the writer wanted to delve so deep on Sidharthan's background, which doesn't have much impact on what culminates in the end.

On the whole, the scenes, the mood, the humour, and best of all Fahad's down to earth and subtle act, in the first half, gets you praising the Director and Fahad, who, is growing as an brilliant actor every film.

Innocent plays his character very well, while all others including Amala Paul is okay in their roles.

The music is fine, while cinematography is very good overall.

The story however lets down as it fails to give justice to Sidharthan and his journey that looked so promising at the start.
