North 24 Kaatham narrates the story of a journey which covers 24 kaatham, where as one kaatham is equal to 16kms. The story here revolves around the character Harikrishnan who is working in an MNC. On a particular occasion company asks Harikrishnan to go to Trivandrum to do a presentation about the software he developed.
On this journey Harikrishnan meets an old man and a girl. Circumstances force him to stay with them. As there is a state wide harthal on the particular day, these characters are in a tight situation. The movie narrates the eventful journey of these characters towards their destinations which influences Harikrishnan in a huge way.
On screen, Fahadh Faasil comes up with a variety character and he has done it with absolute conviction. He also handled the transformation of the character towards the end very elegantly. Swati Reddy also did a very good job in her deglamourized look as Narayani. Nedumudi Venu also deserves applauds for portraying that character of the communist. Direction of Anil Radhakrishnan Menon is really appealing. Overall, the film lover in me was quite happy after watching North 24 Kaatham.
