With the arrival of electricity in Kerala in the early 20th century under British rule, the 'Odiyan' clan - gangsters capable of shape-shifting in the darkness - find it difficult to survive. The last 'Odiyan' (played by Mohanlal) spreads terror across the empire with his stealth attacks when his own kind are captured and ruthlessly killed.Written by
In order to play the role of a younger version of his character, lead actor Mohanlal reportedly lost around 18 kilograms (40 lbs.) over a span of 51 days through a strict diet and physical training program. See more »
Yes there was potential but an ambitious project like this needs skillful men behind this.With both the writer and director failing at their job its a collosal disappointment.
Expectations were lot from Peter Hein who rocked last time with Pulimurugan. But with an ordinary work he is also in the blacklist here.Even the much talked about 'Odi' scenes aren't convincing as most of them looks silly.
Coming to the cast all the roles are poorly etched apart from @Mohanlal and a talented protagonist material like Prakash Raj is offered a plastic character which is another flaw.
Technically the visuals are top notch and Sam's bgm work is commendable but the same cannot be said about editing which acts as a villain for the films non-linear narration.
And about the hero @Mohanlal , we all know how much effort and pain he has gone through for this project but in the wrong hands all of that goes in vain. But his appearance is one of the few positives in this weak film.
