Amal Neerad, cinematographer-turned-director started his career with Ram Gopal Varma's Factory. He then wielded the camera for Ranjith's Black. He went on to direct Big B with Mammootty and Sagar Alias Jackie Reloaded with Mohanlal. Now with his new Malayalam venture Anwar, starring Prithviraj, he proves that his earlier ventures were not flukes. The backdrop of this film is topical. It's about how the youth of God's own country are recruited by terror modules. The script is filled with recent events that are sure to give you a sense of deja vu. There are punchlines but the slapdash style is kept to a minimum. Anwar (Prithviraj) is an orphan serving a jail term for money laundering. In jail he meets Babu Sait (Lal), a religious leader cum businessman accused of masterminding a bomb blast in Coimbatore. He slowly takes Anwar under his wings and even arranges for his bail. Then, as expected, Anwar becomes Sait's right hand man playing an important part in carrying out Sait's illicit ...

a lagging folly film
14 November 2010 | by vineethnair07See all my reviews

Amal Neerad proved again that he is not a good scriptwriter, just a cinematographer, wanted to show all the techniques and stylized shots on the screen with SLOW MOTION effects every where. This film has nothing better from Amal's previous one Sagar Alias Jacky.

First half was very lagging and the over use of slow motion just increased the boredom. i almost fell asleep in theater. Nothing at all happened to the story line until the second half. I am not going through the story as there is not much to mention. The script got many loop holes and some unwanted twists, which not even helped the script and it doesn't makes any sense at all. Screenplay is the skeleton of a film. Amal should give more consideration to the screenplay than the SHOTS. And i hope he would reduce the use of SLOW MOTION in his next film.
