      Default Jana Gana Mana; Thoughts

      Absolutely loved this movie!

      Pradeekshakale kaal ere aagrahichadine oru padi mukalil satisfaction thanna oru movie experience. Oru wannabe rang de basanti aavum enne thonicha 1st half was completely turned on it's head in the second half. spoiler aavadirikaan koodudal plot ne patti samsarikunilla. Ennalum that 'Kayyadikunnille' kazinjolla whole monologue exposing the hypocrisy of modern day social media warriors, gave me chills literally. Level-headed aayi chindikunna ethoru aalkum thonunna logical opinions which can be branded as unpopular by the majority, is presented here unflinchingly with conviction. That Gandhi quote is perfectly apt for it.

      Coming to perfomances, Suraj owned the first half with his subtle act, making the audiences root for him. But man, Prithviraj, take a bow! His dialogue delivery is pitch perfect in every single key punch dialogue scene he is in. His perfomance singlehandedly made the court sequences(which looked unrealistic in some places) in the second half engaging and believable. Idile prithvide perfomance ne moshamaayi kaliyakunna chilarode 'ultimate puccham' matram. one of his better perfomances, since Koode and AK. ee role okke idilum nannayi itra mature aayi cheyan pattiya vere young actors ipo malayalathil undenne viswasikunilla including fahadh(personal opinion). other supporting cast was decent. mamtha was charming once again. shammi thilakan's mannerisms reminded a lot of his father, he is beginning to look and act like him. dhruvan okke enthinano entho ee movieyil apart from being part of the queen team(2nd part il koodudal role ondayekam). That vydarshan actor munbe kanditillengilum was surprisingly impressive in the minimal space he got.

      At the end of the day, atleast personally, chicken biriyani pradeekshiche poyitte pakaram mutton biriyani kittiya feeling aarunnu padam kande kazinjappol. Execution etramatram vijayam kandu ennade is debatable, but for now, the content in this movie absolutely satisfied me. 3.75/5

      P.S: agree with Prithviraj's interviews stating that this is an entertainer first, other than strictly a political movie. edengilum oru partye karivaarithekan vendi matram edutha oru movie aayi thoniyilla. ennal kollendedathe kollunna kore accurate dialogues ondethaanum. avishamillatha cliche 'chuvappe' glorification illanjade thanne oru aaswasam. oppam idinte 2nd part engane aavum proceed cheyuka ennadil oru kouthukam onde, hoping they wouldnt waste too much time on the prequel part.
