Odiyan Movie Review:
Mohanlal performed well in his role and did justice to the action sequences. Manju Warrier looks beautiful and did her role well and impressed the audience as a woman who takes responsibility of her family.
Prakash Raj is okay as a baddie. The song between Manju and her sister was picturized well. The narration was slow and the screenplay is not impressive as it just feels like a routine revenge drama.
Also, there is a lack of entertainment as energetic songs and comedy were not done well. Mohanlal changing getups for no reason wonders everyone.
Director’s thought of a revenge drama with unique concept is good but the slow pace narration spoiled everything. Editing by Johnkutty is not so impressive as up to 30 minutes can be chopped off easily.
Cinematography is decent. Music is below average. Production values are disappointing.
- Lead performances
- Verdict: Overall, Odiyan is below average revenge drama with slow pace narration. So, you can easily skip it and save money for next weekend!
