Odiyan Movie Review:

Odiyan movie’s lead actors Mohanlal and Manju Warrier’s brilliance has been showcased in the scenes where – Manikyan, to make Prabha trust that he is guilt-free of the crime he has been accused of, begs on his knees. The second scene is in which Prabha, in a sense of gratitude, bows her head for helping her.


However, when it comes to the Odiyan movie review, it’s is a dramatic thriller which is brilliantly paced one. The relationships that we see between the three characters (Manikyan, Prabha, and Ravunni) has been explored in the movie well. Also, Odiyan movie marketing playing to the gallery draws a backseat as Harikrishnan’s script goes deep into narrating their stories.

The only place when the movie picked up the pace has to be during the four action scenes.  When it comes to the climax of the movie, the battle of Odiyans took place of a cherry on the top of a cake.

It Continues…

The movie starts with an Odiyan Manikyan’s return to Thenkurissi, his village, after a self-imposed banishment of 15 years. He was criticized and ridiculed at his return. He is forced to take up a battle to frighten a young person utilizing the tribal tricks. Soon the movie discovers Manikyan’s journey by the flashbacks. He brings the audience to prabha, his childhood friend as well as her cousin Ravunni.

The battle between Manikyan and Ravunni slows until two deaths in Prabha’s family forces Manikyan to leave his village. Now, the important thing to notice was that how would his return impact those in the village. This play a huge role in the plot of the movie. Other than the above, if the length of the movie could have been trimmed a little, Odiyan could have been an extremely engaging film.
