The film is the come back movie of Mohanlal, first half of the film impressed the audience because of the comedy scenes in it but in the second half movie showed a twist and the emotional thriller film make many eyes full of tears. Movie has presented in a good manner.
But on to the story, which is actually four stories – and all of them have to do with money, the lack of it, the desire for it, or the rift it creates between social classes. In the first story, Sairam (Mohanlal), the Assistant Manager in a supermarket, so desperately seeks a promotion that he’s willing to endanger another man’s life. In the second, discount-chasing housewife Gayathri (Gautami) lands a windfall when an old debt is repaid many times over.
The titles appear on jigsaw pieces and hint at a puzzle being put together.
Only two stories really work. What Sairam does and the guilt he subsequently endures would, in the right hands, result in another Drishyam there’s a similar sense of a hasty, emotional decision spiralling into a clammy mess someimes it feels quite frustrated when the film undercuts this tension and moves to another story. Gayathri’s arc is interesting too.
The movie is going great both in domestic and internationally and the reviews are intresting too both from the critics and audience. The movie is still going amazingly on th box office and is making it’s way to the successful and hit block-buster movies.
