AOF Review

Odiyan (2018) | Malayalam

The brilliance of Odiyan's lead actors Mohanlal and Manju Warrier are showcased in two scenes - one in which Odiyan Manikyan begs on his knees to make Prabha believe his is innocent of the crime he is accused of and another in which she bows her head in gratitude for him helping return light in her life.For most part, Odiyan is a drama and an aptly paced one at that too. The relationships of its three characters - Manikyan, Prabha and Ravunni (Prakash Raj) - are what the movie explores in detail and all the marketing about the movie playing to the gallery takes a backseat as Harikrishnan's script delves deep into telling their stories. The only times where the movie picks up speed is during its four action scenes, each better than the other, and climax battle of Odiyans taking the cake.
