Malayalam Movie Odiyan Review
Odiyan was written by Harikrishnan, which is based on the legend of the Odiyan clan, who in Kerala folklore are men who have shapeshifting abilities and can assume inhuman forms. The whole premise of Odiyan demands a huge visual production and an epic story. Odiyan lacks both the aspects, Odiyan literally delivers nothing exciting in the screenplay and poorly edited. The movie’s first half is to bad that the second half looks impressive, if not the technical aspects do.
Malayalam Movie Odiyan Story
Odiyan begins, after 15 years an old age Odiyan name Manikyan (Mohanlal) returns to his village Thenkkurussi. Through the narrative of Mammooty a series of previous events that dominate, we also get to know of the reason for Manikyan departure under a cloud of suspicion following the deaths of two local people. We learn too of the triangular relationship between the poor hero, the mistress of the house he serves Prabha and the libidinous Ravunni (Prakash Raj). Prabha incorporates a blind sister (Sana Althaf).
The poorly written first half spend on creating the characterization of Manikyan in both forms. The director V.A Shrikumar Menon and writer Harikrishnan not defined what really want to convey. They are showcasing a supernatural assassin as a Mollywood Superhero but without any mass dialogues or regressive action sequence.
Odiyan lacks is depth and description in distinction with these modern Overseas myths backward on screen and with richly representative ancient non-secular mythology worldwide, as well as domestic own. Odiyan through its nearly 3 hours period of time is that the unpretentious air it manages to make up from the beginning, the traditional Malayalam movie cinematography work throughout the few (too few) action scenes, Mohanlal’s physical transformation to play the younger Manikyan his styling, makeup and visible weight loss and the pleasure, as always, of seeing actor like Manju Warrier in a considerable important role.
