An Average Movie That's Worth A Watch For Its Relevant Plot & Good Performances"
Prithviraj is well-known for choosing quality scripts and his joining hands with acclaimed screenwriter-actor Murali Gopy was enough and more for generating huge pre-release buzz and as such Tiyaan was among the well-anticipated movies to come out from Mollywood this calendar year.Could the movie live up to all the mammoth expectations surrounding it?I would say 'No'.So,is the movie a bad one? Certainly 'No'!
A decent flick overall,Tiyaan is a satisfactory mix of drama,politics,realism and mysticism,but lacks depth and soundness to call it a dedicated effort in a whole.The screenplay by Murali Gopy intelligently intertwines spiritualism with political scenario of the time being,but never tries hard to render the plot conclusive,especially towards the second hour where it turns just another mediocre cat and mouse chase between the good and the evil.
Jeeyen Krishnakumar's narration was pretty ordinary and had notable flaws that became more noticeable with the onset of the second half.Evidently the first half of Tiyaan was more entertaining and well-presented on comparison with the strictly average second half.It should be admitted that the movie would have reached another level had the narrative been foolproof and the screenplay been penned with a little more care and perfection.
Both Indrajith and Prithviraj Sukumaran were equally good in their respective roles and it was a treat to watch the actors mouthing the powerful and hard hitting dialogs written by Murali Gopy.MuraliGopy's act as demi-god Mahakshay Bhagwan was good even though his expressions was monotonous for the major part of the narration. ll Overall,Tiyaan is worth a watch for the brilliant lead performances,socially relevant plot and the noteworthy message that movie puts forward.Watch out for the sequences that enlight upon the meaning of 'Sanathana Dharma' and 'Tathwamasi' that's sure to evoke goosebumps for the cinema-lover inside you ! :-)
