Adam Joan Review: A top notch effort which will impress you!
One among the major releases that had graced the screens this Friday here in Kerala was Adam Joan directed and scripted by Jinu Abraham. Jinu Abraham had earlier written the screenplays for movies like Masters and London Bridge directed by Johny Antony and Anil C Menon. This movie named Adam Joan has been produced by CS Stanley and Jose Simon and it has been distributed here by Renji Panicker under the banner named Renji Panicker Entertainments. Bhavana, Narein, Mishti Chakravarthy etc played the other characters in this flick along with Prithviraj Sukumaran.
The plot of this movie revolves around the character named Adam Joan Pothen who is a planter. He falls in love with a girl named Emy and she dies after delivering a baby girl to him. But he leaves that child in the hands of his mother and brother who were settled in Scotland. Bhavana plays Swetha who is the wife of Adam Joan’s brother. Rahul Madhav is the one who plays his brother role. The film starts moving when that child has been kidnapped by someone after killing Adam’s mother.
We can say that Jinu Abraham had made a wonderful debut as a director and by far had written the best screenplay in his career as well. He had written a tight screenplay which will tell you a novel story based on some true events. All the characters had their own identity and space in the plot. It offers a lot of thrilling sequences and technically it is a top notch movie. Jinu controlled the pace of the narration and the intensity in the plot was terrific. The emotional scenes too worked out really well.
Performance from Prithviraj Sukumaran has been the highlight of this flick. He had once again given a high -quality performance and made the character look real through his body language and dialogue delivery style. His mass screen presence was just amazing as well. Bhavana did a good job as Swetha and Narein once again played a very good supporting character as Syriac. Mishti Chakravarthy also given a matured performance and she really looked beautiful as well. Rahul Madhav, Sidharth Siva, Maniyan Pillai Raju, Lena and Madhusudhanan Rao etc had also done their part to perfection.

DOP from Jithu Damodar was has been the soul of this flick as he had delivered some terrific visuals of the high standard in this movie. T times it looked like a Hollywood movie. He had captured the mystic beauty of Scotland amazingly well. Songs by Deepak Dev and background scoring by Gopi Sundar was also great. It really helped the movie to create the mystery mood to tell the story. Ranjan Abrham’s editing was also decent which helped the flick to stay perfect in its technical department.
In total, Adam Joan is a technically perfect revenge thriller, which will never disappoint you. If you love dark thrillers set in a different background, then go for it.
