Swathandryam Ardharathriyil Review: Excitement guaranteed!
Tinu Pappachan debut directional venture Swathandryam Ardharathriyil graced the screens here in Kerala this Saturday. It is the second film of Antony Varghese who played the lead in Ankamaly Diaries directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery last year. Dileep Kurian had written the screenplay of this movie and it has been bankrolled by BC Joshi under the banner of Surya Cinemas, B Unnikrishnan under the banner of R D Illumination, Lijo Jose Pellissery, and Chemban Vinod Jose. The mass posters and terrific trailer for this movie had made it one of the most anticipated movies of this summer.
The plot revolves around the character named Jacob, played by Antony Varghese. He is an ordinary guy from Kottayam. The film moves forward when some unexpected incident happens in his life, which lands him in jail. From there, the movie becomes an out and out action thriller.
Tinu Pappachan had made a terrific debut as he had come up with a sensational movie. The screenplay from Dileep Kurian had given a perfect platform for the director and Tinu had grabbed it with both hands. He had made a thrilling movie which can be called one of the best action thrillers in Mollywood. It has everything in it to engage the audience until the very end. The plot situations were very much convincing and the dialogues were sharp. Each and every character has their own space in the movie. He had made it an intense thriller which will make you feel that you are in that world as well.
The performance from Antony Varghese has been fabulous as Jacob. He has been cool and he had done this role without showing any struggle. His dialogue delivery has been great and he had maintained a terrific body language throughout as well. Vinayakan once had given a stunning performance and along with him Chemban Vinod too had given an amazing act. Lijo Jose Pellisserry who played an advocate in this movie had also got applause from the audience with his performance. Nandhu Lal too got applause from the audience.
DOP from Gireesh Gangadharan was the highlight of this flick. After his terrific job in Ankamaly diaries, he once again let his visuals speak and that was pure class. Songs from Jakes Bejoy and background scoring from Deepak Alexander was up to the mark. Shameer Muhammad’s neat and sharp cuts had provided this movie with great pace and technical quality.
In total, Swathandryam Ardharathriyil is a powerful entertainer which will never let you down. You are in for an intense thriller which will give you a whole new cinematic experience and worth each penny you spend to watch it.
