      Default Odiyan - Review

      I would rate it as an above average movie. The best part of the movie is it's premise - the odiyan myth. The worst part was the expectation created by the people behind the movie. Odiyan was portrayed as a desi superhero, but the movie doesn't have the fun elements of a superhero movie. Its rather a serious, realistic movie, with some mass elements added.

      Positives

      Visuals - top notch
      Songs - superb
      Performances - by lead cast as well as supporting cast.
      VFX - pretty good

      Action choreography - was okay. Similar to pulimurugan. The odiyan sequences had class. But almost all action sequences are at night which kind of makes it look less interesting. The climax fight lacked clarity.

      Negatives

      I wouldn't say the direction or the screenplay was bad. But one of the key element was missing with both - good storytelling. Nalla sequences undakkiyal mathram pora athu adukkum chittayodum koodi oru katha parayan koodi kazhiyanam oru nalla samvidayakanum thirakadhakrithinum. Athil randu perum parajayapettu.

      The kondoram should have come in the first half. Lalettans song should have been included in the main part with visuals.

      Verdict

      The first day audience won't like the movie. And its neither like pulimurugan, nor drishyam. And I don't think it's a movie that required this level of hype or marketing. It's not a movie that Telugu audience will like. Theatre response was mixed - it was filled with fans and most of them were disappointed I think. I went with 3 families. The ladies and kids liked it, as they didn't have any expectations.

      I feel the movie will be a hit, should get to the 100cr level. It's definitely better than all the negative reviews floating.
