I watched this movie based on one of my friend’s advise, as I do not follow or understand Malayalam.
Downloading subtitles, I set on the journey of 2.5 hours and the hero, heroine took me through a simple romantic story.
What a lovely warm story it turned out to be. It is a story of a girl growing up through her teens narrated by her own-self, about her journey and more importantly covering her growing interest for a man in her town. She narrates her constant efforts and her continued endeavor to earn his love, while staying positive in parallel with the hope that true love would reach its destination one fine day.
The innocent cute looking Nazriya Nazim earned herself a fan, as I was dumbstruck with her natural simplistic acting which brought life to the character. At one end, she plays a pensive moody girl as a teenager transforming into a matured understanding adult as her life moves.
Nivin Pauly fits well into the character of a practical serious man who for his age understands the difference between what infatuation of a girl and love of a woman means. He has done a decent job for the screen time he shares, as the movie is actually marked for the heroine.
A beautiful simple slow movie. I crave to more Malayalam movies after watching this. Well, Premam and Neram pushed me further into this space. I will cover the review of these movies subsequently. For now, it is ohm shanthi oshaana……..
