God For Sale, directed by Babu Janardhanan, tells the story about human Gods, and of those who make money by the name of Gods. It throws light at the political ethics and beliefs of Prasannan Nair, portrayed by Kunchacko Boban.
The movie can be rated as an average one, but it has the credit of having one of the best performance of Kunchacko Boban. His characterisation in the movie as a protagonist, portrays a multi-layered and complex one. He will be seen in a new look as Swami Poornananda in the first half of the film, where he is accused of murdering a young boy.
Then the movie God For Sale goes for a flash back, and he will be seen as Prasannan, a young man, who is a RSS follower and then turns a Communist and then ultimately a mentally deranged person. Thus occurs the birth of Swami Poornananda. The film is shown as a mixture of past and present.
Suraj will be seen in a double role. Thilakan also has made his strong presence in the film. Lakshmi Priya, Anumol, Jyothi Krishna are the female leads and have contributed sufficiently. All other characters comes under the shadow of Swami Poornananda. The movie cannot be said as a spell bound, but if you are a Kunchacko Boban fan, you are going to like this movie for sure.
The movie has the credit of establishing the apt characterisation and characters. Director has roped in the right artists and has been successful in bringing out what he wanted.
Kunchacko’s Look As Swami
Kunchacko Boban for the first time will be seen as a swami. His new looks is sure to get him along more way in his acting career as he is showing his willingness for experimentation in characters.
Anumol - A Promising Heroine
Anumol has been successful in establishing her performance in the film. She is sure to perform more in her upcoming flicks too. She shared a good chemistry with Chackochen in the film.
The movie has beautifully portrayed the background and personal life of godmen. Kunchacko Boban has beautifully presented the character that it throws light to some original people we see around. It has some good music also.
Apart from Kunchacko's character as swami, all the other elements become unnoticed. Romance content is not much highlighted and at some point, the story seems to be lagging.
