      Default █ ►FINALS◄ █ - My Review

      Date : 20.09.2019
      Theatre : CineRoyal, Screen 12
      Place : Dalma Mall, Abu Dhabi
      Time : 8.15pm

      *******THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS*******

      This was a movie I had planned to watch due to multiple reasons. One, very rarely we get a sports movie in Malayalam and two, seeing the general public opinions and also reviews by Malayalee and Sree here.

      Although the movie is heavily promoted as a Rajisha Vijayan (as Alice) movie where she essays the role of a cyclist from Idukki, it purely belongs to one individual...Suraj Venjaramood (as Varghese) who acts as her father. Alice is a national cycling champion on whom everyone has a Gold medal hope for the Tokyo Olympics 2020. She trains very hard and Varghese always ensures her focus is on the training and achieving the goal. He also never lets Alice give interviews to the media (reason for which is shown in the 2nd half). Maniyanpilla Raju's son Niranjan plays the role of Manuel, a very close friend of Alice and who loves her. Alice though having the same feelings to him won't reciprocate the feelings as Varghese doesn't like her deviating from her aim. First half progresses with Alice's cycling practices and towards the interval the cycling race at Vagamon is shown. Varghese finally gives the nod to Alice to confess her love to Manuel and subsequently Alice asks Manuel to wait for her at the finish line of the Vagamon race. However, Alice meets with a horrible accident (intentional or not is focused in the 2nd half) while she was leading the race which brings the first half to a close.

      2nd half fully focuses on Varghese. Himself a sports trainer the flashback story of Varghese is shown where the sports federation and its top people taking vengeance on him through different ways as he works independently and reaps rewards for his sports school trainees. They gets him arrested in the name of giving steroids for his athletes and thus shutting down his sports school. Dejected initially he later finds the spark in Alice in the field of cycling and starts doing everything for her for many years to achieve their dream.

      His dreams are shattered for the 2nd time after the accident to Alice which has resulted her being fully paralyzed with the ability to only blink her eyes....is there a way for Varghese to achieve anything...??? This is where the film completely shift gears and the focus....to find that out please go and watch the film in theaters....

      Personally I had an amazing time watching the movie, right from the opening credits showing the sporting icons of Kerala till the end credits rolls where it says the movie is dedicated to Kerala cyclist Shiny Silas who was killed after a car hit her cycle. We have always read the stories of the national level sports people (excluding cricketers) about the humiliation and ignorance they face from their respective authorities. This film clearly shows the turmoils of sports persons without overdoing the same.

      The movie as I said earlier belongs to Suraj ably supported by Rajisha and Niranj. The supporting cast of Tini Tom, Sona Nair and others also are good. BGM and songs stay true to what is happening in the screen. A big salute to the director / writer P.R Arun for taking the efforts to give us a beautiful film and thanks to Maniyanpilla Raju for bankrolling it. The technical side of the film is top notch with the highlight being the sequence showing the Vagamon race.


      My rating : 4.5/5
