Dear friends after watching this movie ,the first thing i asked myself is ,where is this story happening?? it cannot be, anyplace in this world or any other known or unknown…apparently this story happens in a Dystopian place somewhere in Kerala where injustice is normal and police will either perpetuate it or help you do it in style with slow motions and great background score by Gopi sunder. ..Mikhael the protagonist played by Nivin Pauli is a doctor.some bad people are trying to kill his sister Jenny ,and Mikhael like the guardian angel protects her every time..why they are trying to kill jenny and how Mikhael protects her from the bad guys…. this my friends is Mikhael -Guardian Angel for you.
STORY & SCREENPLAY
Needless to say that the story is quite predictable…the only thing that we are waiting for is when and where are the things that we already know are going to happen…
.we have seen similar themes before in many films…there are too many loose ends which forces us to not believe in the story.
i think the characters dont have depth and unnecessary characters are included which made too many loose ends.charachters like suraj venjaramood doesn’t have any motivation to help mikhayel but he is doing it just because he want to hear the story about him from his senior.he is convinced too soon and too easy which i think is a major flaw in the movie.
historically in Malayalam movies doctors are either depicted as too self righteous or scum of the society who is all about money. this movie is also not any different in perpetuating stereotypes about doctors and police.depicting reality is not the need but could have omitted the stereo types.
my most memorable scene from the movie is the one in which sidhique is talking to kpac lalitha about his son ,after his son is dead.
the writer done a below average job
I think Haneef Adeni is a good director.though there is nothing new in it,predictability of the story ,he is able to entertain the audience with being truthful to his strengths i.e to provide mass scenes to the audience and pulling them off in style.i think he has got the knack to pull off hits which are pure entertainers.i think Haneef Adeni is an above average director who need a better script writer. the right script can do wonders for this man.
I think the editing is fine.
Music & Background Score
Gopi Sunder have done a fine job in the background score…though there is not much scope for music in this thriller one song is there which is alright .it is the background score that sells the movie .could have used silence in a few places where background sounds could have avoided.
Nivin Pauli,Sidhique,J.D Chakravarthy , Kishore ,Navani Devanand have done their job well….KPAC Lalitha,Shanthi Krishna ,Ashokan,Suraj Venjaaramoodu,Baiju,Kalabhavan Shajon have limited space to perform so as the rest of the cast…..Unni Mukundan’s villain is the biggest let down.other than showing his well maintained body and cool fighting skills there is nothing in it.
overall if you are a Nivin Pauli / Unni Mukundan fan you may like this film because everything fans expect from a movie is there in it….it is a one time watch mass entertainer movie
music and background score- 3/5
overall rating – 2.5/5
