An above average crime thriller.
Oppam is an above average suspense thriller with a tight screen play, wonderful cinematography and the ever wonder Mohanlal aka our Lalettan. The film marks the return of one of the most successful pair in Malayalam film industry , Mohanlal and Priyadarshan. Though they are known for their comedy films through out , this time they return with a thriller movie. The duos previous attempt on horror thriller Geethanjali, was a big let down, but that is not the case with Oppam. The story is good, suspense holds attention and the flow is occasionally fast ( there are places where the film get stretched more than needed) . Songs are good and apt to the film , the visuals are stunning , especially in songs . Background score is a bit loud to the level of irritating , should have damped it a bit. Mohanlal proves he has not yet lost his touch , supporting cast also does the job well. Apart from suspense there is a bit of everything in the film , humor, action ( if you are a Lalettan fan, there is a moment where you will whistle out loud ) and emotion. All in all it is a complete Onam package.
