      My closing thought is: dark themed movies and serious content have a bigger margin for error than entertainers. A normal commercial entertainer that goes wrong is brutally taken apart by social media which is why not many go down that road anymore.

      Most of the stars are relying on realistic thrillers are coz they dont have to rely much on their calibre rather it falls on the director

      For example KuBo below are the movies he acted and out of these movis we know how many of them got something out of it...but check his movies which atleast made a buzz...Virus Take Off Nayaattu n Nizhal same goes with Tovino , Nivin , Asif n all of em

      Thats why we have Pushku criticizing Mohanlal for portraying characters in Devasuram, Rasthanthram etc etc

      the current trend has more to do with the rise of a minority of vocal woke Audience and some online critics like mallu analyst, lensmen, unni vlogs etc. who think that any movie being made should stick to their agenda or politics. If not, these movies will be branded by a a variety of colourful ‘isms’... this trend has been going on for some time in hollywood where everything has gotten political with null entertainment value (consequently dipping audience too) and sadly mollywood is trying to emulate that... in my recent memory, the only 2 movies(with apparently ‘ist’ or problematic content) that was bulletproof from critic reviews post opening day were pulimurugan and premam... ammadiri humungous response olla padangale appo thodan ivar onnu madikkum... However medium opinions aanel these critics would just shred em to pieces... recent examples would be maduraraja and brother’s day... randum paatum danceum colour and comedy okke olla festival entertainment movies aarunnu... whether they were any good is a matter of perspective, but personally they were decent one-time watchable movies... but movies like that are not given a chance these days and it costs a lot to make such movies! Comparatively, an underwhelming ‘c u soon’ , kala, joji or irul are much cheaper to shoot and they will have a minimum guarantee of critical acclaim (barring irul) cos of the people or politics involved...

      Recently when I saw Oppam, I felt Priyan has really pulled off a brilliant stuff when you look into certain sections;

      If I tell you the story of Oppam in a nutshell, 99% you will find it stupid. Even further detailing, you will think it will work during 90s or before.

      Just hear a few instances;

      1) Blindman can recognize people & incidents through smell

      2) Blindman fights against 4 well trained police officers

      Now tell me, how many (Especially during this realistic era) would have bought these. But Oppam is still in the top 5 highest grossers list and came close to breaking Drishyam's record before Pulimurugan's emergence!!!

      I think this is where Priyadarshan's commercial sense worked well. He just established the environment within a few scenes prior to the opening credits (Chinnamma song). "Chettan njangale kaalum nannayi ee vazhi ariyaam.." & Jayaraman's explanation about Kalari etc. Yet he still humanize him by using a watch to know the time. In Telugu industry, they might use sun as a reason.

      So once the world is set up, the movie goes through multiple incidents involving or not involving Jayaraman. A few comic tracks from Mamukoya, Jayaraman's personal financial issues, Servant issues and finally the main track of judge. Even during the song of "Minungum Minnaminunge.." Jayaraman's skills are shown where he plays violin also. So within that period, Jayaraman is established as blind man with special set of skills which can beat a normal man. Then the track was introduced where the judge gets killed and the whole Jayaraman v/s Vasu starts off. Other than 1-2 side tracks including the comic scene of Mamukoya, the film completely focuses on that track.

      Now how well Priyan has established Jayaraman is totally subjective. If you didn't buy it, the rest of the movie looks ridiculous. If you "just" buy it for the sake of entertainment, you might enjoy the movie. In reality, majority bought it and thats why it became a success.

      Another main reason is Mohanlal's performance. We can see Priyan struggling in Hindi with poor actors in lead. Here his safety guard is Mohanlal. Now Mohanlal played the role when everyone was ready to compare with Late Mai's best performance VLPN. But Mohanlal didn't opt for any such gimmicks of hiding the eyeball etc etc. He played it in his own style and thus cleared off all sorts of comparisons, Once thats done and the performance becomes appealing, Priyan's work is made easier.

      As a member mentioned, its far far far more difficult to deliver a fine entertainer like Oppam in comparison to a realistic movie. The production values are higher and expectations are higher in terms of box office returns.

      Remember Aashiq Abu's Gangster, Daddy Cool etc where he failed completely. Thats a perfect example.

      Priyan is a specialist in unrealistic themes! Greatest example is Chithram - the one line is the perhaps one of the most ridiculous ever in Malayalam cinema. But, Moahanlal, Nedumudi Venu, Karhtika and Poornam Vishwanathan comepletely sold it to the audience. In the case of Oppam, I consider Mohanlal's performance alongise Al Pacino's Scent of a Woman, though not quite as spectacular. Perhaps the only two actors who chose to go wide eyed and without black glasses while portraying a blind character.
