The Great Father Malayalam Movie Review

Haneef Adeni’s ‘The Great Father’ is a nouveau revenge-thriller, that has been stylishly executed and wreaked towards perfecting-the distinct mark of a ‘beginner’s triumph’.

After a really long wait, Mammooty has finally met his match/whetstone in the macho builder ‘David Nainaan’.All those exhibits of extreme vogue kept aside, David is a doting father who’s regarded by his daughter as to be her ‘First love and Eternal Superhero’; and thus goes the day’s slating justification as to the chafing of ‘the reliable Father figure’ in him, and the piquing of his affected dynamisms, at a crucial juncture.

Roby Varghese Raj’s cinematography is a true treat for the eyes. His extensive range of ‘visual collectives’ extend from a well-executed dolly zoom shot, to a slightly lengthened time-lapsed version of a high angle shot. A truly indigenous talent to look out for.(fresh n ripened out from the ‘Jomon’ school!)

However, the movie purposefully bears some undeniable semblances to the basic structure of ‘The Dark Knight’……or maybe, I suppose that Haneef Adeni is himself one among the most indisputable of the Nolan fanboys!!!

Also caught a glimpse of ‘The Pledge’ somewhere(a Sean Penn directorial of a Jack Nicholson starrer).
Overall, ‘The Great Father’ is in the least worth its unprecedented hype.

Look out for Mammootty’s great acting, some brilliant slow motion stunts, punchy one liners and loads of assorted style.

“The fanboy, who lies deep beneath my conscience is pleased…..with thrills n tonnes of ‘reasons towards exhilaration’ galore!”

Rating : 3/5
