The reason and hype for watching Loham was too high mainly because of the classic film maker Renjith-Mohanlal duo. But the over expectation kills the mood of the movie a lot. So ThirdShows advice is to just bring it down to a lower level and watch Loham.
In one word, Loham is neither a mass entertainer nor a class movie. Its just an above average flick that is surely going to get a mixed bags of opinion in the coming days.
Loham is simple movie which narrates a simple plot in a classic way in not more than 130 mins. The movie is written and directed by Renjith itself in a very brilliant manner. The remaining technical side had also done a good job. Debutant Kunjunni S. Kumar who is the son of S.kumar (cinematographer) had taken much care, capturing the visuals in a realistic way. Sreevalsan J. Menon had not tracks and the BGM by C.Rajamani is just average.
The performance of Mohanlal is simply superb and Andrea Jeremiah also acted beautifully along with them a huge row of actors including Vijayaraghavan, Siddique, Ranji Panicker, Sadiq, Irshad, Suresh Krishna, Shankar Ramakrishnan, Krishna, Ajmal Ameer, Santhosh Keezhattoor, Abu Salem, Joju George, KPAC Lalitha, Mythili, Thesni Khan, Gauri Nanda etc plays the supporting roles but Sidique was just simply superb as a supporting role.
The first half is a humorous entertainer while second half becomes little bit slow and then second half has dark shades of his identity and some heroism. Totally movie discuss about a taxi driver Raju who drives in kochi and Jayanti (Andrea Jeremiah) once comes from Mumbai with a some reason and hires Raju’s taxi for the ride. The incidents that happens in between them and the people come across their way on that particular day along their journey is the plot of Loham.
- Along with Mohanlal, Siddique Performed well
- Script Could have been made more relavent and good
- Music and BGM is not up to the mark
Verdict: An Average one time watchable thriller.
(Never expect a full mass movie)
Thirdshows Rating: 3/5
