| Wow!
Brutally gripping and brilliantly realistic, this is all that Airlift tried to be but couldn't. Not just the best Malayalam movie of the year, but one of the best of the year overall. Parvathy amazes with each role she takes up, every one of them different from the other, and she carries this movie on her able shoulders. Fahad Fazil, Kunchako Boban and others provide admirable support, but the biggest kudos should go to the director here. Based on the incident where Indian nurses in Iraq were kidnapped by Isis, and their eventual release, this movie deserves as wide an audience as it can get, and Parvathy and its director deserve all the accolades they can get for it.
