When you try to make a political thriller, whether you like it or not, you do end up bringing to life on screen, characters that are heavily inspired from real life. Shaji Kailash, who has more than a dozen such films to his credit, just couldn't refuse the lure of making his reel-life characters resemble some well-known present day personalities.
'Time' is a typical Shaji Kailash film with all its rapid cuts, big dialogues and eccentric characters and a story inspired from the newspapers. This time around, he has maintained steady pace throughout the film, something that he often falters at. But, you just cant help but notice that the film doesn't have that big a story to tell.
