Mohanlal’s movie Odiyan has registered an amazing response in fans’ show and made good collection at the worldwide box office. BJP’s hartal had a least effect on the business in the early morning shows.

Odiyan is one of the most hyped and highly-anticipated Malayalam movie of 2018. Mohanlal’s fans were desperately waiting for its release. The makers and distributors made grand arrangements for its release in a bid to cash in on the Lalettan mania and advance booking went in full swing. Hours before its release, the fans were in for a huge shock, when the news about BJP’s Hartal in Kerala broke.

This sudden move by the BJP sparked a debate between the party supporters and the fans of Mohanlal. A fan named Chindu‏ tweeted, “Nobody will die and nobody will be killed. Tired of having multiple hartals due to some random deaths due to bjp. #Odiyan will release & this is Kerala We dont mix politcs with movies & we have humanity above all So welcome to kerala if somebody stops tell them its #Odiyan day”

Responding to him, a BJP follower tweeted, “If Exams & Govt Job Interviews can be postponed if a Commie Neta has loose motion,y can’t #odiyan be postponed,is any1 going to die if they watch this commercial movie 1day late,so be it.For me the sanctity of #Sabarimala is more important than a movie.”

The makers were quick to approach BJP heads and request them to not disturb the screening of Odiyan. Besides, some fans of Mohanlal reportedly went on provide free vehicle services for viewers who wanted to watch the movie. A named Vimal tweeted, “Kerala rewrites history. Release of a movie got excluded from hartaal. Hope other movies gets same privilege on next hartaal. #nexthartaal #kerala #hartaal #odiyan”

The makes of Odiyan organised 431 fans’ shows across the world in the wee hours of Friday and these shows had huge advance booking. Snehasallapam tweeted, “#Odiyan Fan Show Pre sales Across Global Market 20,063,562/- As Per Our System Odiyan Already Covered #KayamkulamKochunni 2 Days UAE Figure With Advance Booking Itself All Set to cross 15cr+ Gross On First Day #OdiyanRise From Today.

Odiyan is making superb collection at the worldwide box office on the first day with most of the cinema halls witnessing 100 percent occupancy in the wee hours of Friday. Bobins Abraham‏ tweeted, “Meanwhile #Odiyan has opened to packed movie halls across #Kerala, with the first show beginning at 4 am. The next show will start at 8 am. Mohanlal fans are standing guard to many theatres amid the #BJPHarthal.”

Odiyan Movie Review

The brilliance of Odiyan’s lead actors Mohanlal and Manju Warrier are showcased in two scenes – one in which Odiyan Manikyan begs on his knees to make Prabha believe his is innocent of the crime he is accused of and another in which she bows her head in gratitude for him helping return light in her life.

For most part, Odiyan is a drama and an aptly paced one at that too. The relationships of its three characters – Manikyan, Prabha and Ravunni (Prakash Raj) – are what the movie explores in detail and all the marketing about the movie playing to the gallery takes a backseat as Harikrishnan’s script delves deep into telling their stories.

The only times where the movie picks up speed is during its four action scenes, each better than the other, and climax battle of Odiyans taking the cake.

The movie begins with an aged Odiyan Manikyan returning to his village in Thenkurissi after a self imposed exile of 15 years. He is reviled and even derided for returning, and soon his is forced to take up a challenge to scare a youngster using the tricks of his tribe. Soon the film traces Manikyan’s journey through flashbacks and introduces the audience to his childhood friend Prabha and her lustful , scheming cousin Ravunni. The rivalry between Manikyan and Ravunni simmers till two deaths in Prabha’s family pushes Manikyan to leave the village. How his return affects those in the village forms the rest of the plot.

Director Shrikumar has ably executed Harikrishnan’s script that doesn’t have mass dialogues or scenes but goes for grounded storytelling. It’s quite contrary from all the hype and buildup the film had pre-release and might leave the fans wanting more.

Mohanlal as the shape shifting Odiyan is on top form, both during the scenes that require to do action and also emote. Mammootty’s narration about how Odiyans strike fear to those they are paid to scare by taking the form of animals and Shrikumar’s use of graphics to execute the concept has helped the film to a great extent.

Manju Warrier aces her scenes with Mohanlal, with a meaty role after quite some time. Prakash Raj too puts on a decent performance, however, the dubbing does take away the impact from his villainy.

Shaji Kumar’s frames are another highlight of the film along with M Jayachandran’s songs that are well picturised, especially the track Kondaram. However, what steals the scenes are Peter Hein-choreographed action sequences that also add some much-needed punch to sometimes stretched out 167 minute-long movie.

If the length could have been further trimmed, Odiyan would have been a highly engaging film even for the fans expecting a ‘mass’ movie. Even otherwise Odiyan has good acting, a well thought-out script and brilliant action scenes that the family audience would enjoy.
