Award winning director Madhu Kaithapram's latest venture Orma Maathram, which features Dileep in a serious look, was expected to give him a new image in the industry. But the movie looks like an old fashioned art film and its illogical script fails to engage the audience in its proceedings.
Orma Mathram is a family drama, which revolves around a father's pursuit for his lost son. Dileep's serious acting is the major attraction of the film. The movie throws light on some social issues like abortion, guilt, inter-caste marriage and child labor. But its old fashioned narration mars its beauty.
The main problem of the film is that director Madhu Kaithapram has chosen an unconvincing story. The movie is simply prosaic and its story moves along aimlessly with its uninspiring events. Some unwanted characters and slow paced narration add to the weak story.
