Elegant Film-Making Works Along With Stylized Cinematography. ♦ 86%
Neram has lots of factors borrowed from Quentin Tarantino's movies. Mainly the cinematography, direction & slow-mo pause-resume style adoption during chase scenes. It works.
Starting off with funny credits, Neram talks about how a luckless lad is waiting for his time to get right. His life capsizes & resurfaces in a single day. All the commotion in between with some genuine characters is a treat to the viewers. Humor is limited but has credibility & punch. The unfolding of the straightforward plot keeps the viewers in their toes and with the background music so relevant, it pulls off. Fantastic camera work and even better dialogs.
Nivin Pauly charms while Nazriya suits along. Newcomers have done very well in portraying their characters. Every single character has a humorous side & that is what makes the movie very watchable. A very fine approach, although with stolen (read borrowed) elements. Another best part being when all the elements reveal they were co-related, it brings a shower of wonder.
BOTTOM LINE: A must-watch thriller which can make a pessimist laugh mostly because it relates an ordinary man. Highly recommended!
