Mumbai police malayalam movie review

The super director Roshan Andrews after a short break is back with his new flick “Mumbai Police”,with Prithviraj playing the lead role.The movie is enriched with the presence of popular actors like Jayasurya,Rahman,Aparna nair etc.The movie is a crime thriller. As every crime thriller starts this movie also starts with the search for a culprit who had commited a murder.Even though the story is a crime thriller it’s taken in a totally different manner.

STORY

The movie begins with Prithviraj attending a phone call while he was driving and suddenly he met with an accident there starts the real drama Mumbai police.After the accident prithviraj will fall in to an unconscious state i.e he forgets everything about his past .After some time he will get back in to the investigation with this disorder .This makes the movie really interesting .The investigation happens in a hot manner because the victim who was murdered is a police officer(jayasurya) and more over he was a friend of prithviraj.Then the movie moves out with certain shocking situations and search behind many persons to find the culprit .Finally he will get caught.
Review

The first half of the movie is really interesting and thrilling and it is capable of making the viewers charged and about the second half ,as it is taking the viewers more close to the story it makes the viewers anxious but with the climax every viewer will get disappointed. The climax of the movie is framed very badly ,even though it is an unexpected move but such a climax is surely going to drain the image of Prithviraj .In simple words we can pronounce the climax as a “Dirty Climax” which makes the movie the most worst.The movie comes under the category of watchable with a small suggestion that better don’t watch the climax part .
Positives

  • Direction and Camera was superb.We can say it as a brilliant move from the director Roshan Andrews
  • Acting of Prithviraj
  • Jayasurya had made his role remarkable
  • Eventhough Aparna doesn’t have much to do .She played his part well
  • Rahman played his role a bit better than everyone in the movie.
  • Script till the climax part

Negative
Everything with the movie seemed to be good except the climax part.

Rating : 2.75/5
Verdict : Entertaining till before the climax. Brilliant script goes in a wrong direction thereafter
