excelled in both emotional and lighter sequences, with his
Written & Directed By Jeethu Joseph
Writer-director Jeethu Joseph, has successfully weaved a perfect
revenge drama, with a slight touch of romance and sentimental
elements. He has experimented with a never-seen-before narrative
pattern, which makes the movie a very different experience.
Balachandra Menon As Krishnamurthy
Balachandra Menon, the veteran actor-director who plays
Krishnamurthy, is just perfect as the loving yet strict father, who
is also a very honest government servant.
Divya Pillai, the Ayaal Njanalla fame actress who
essays the female lead in the movie, is okay in her role. But the
actress surely needs to brush up her skills.
Neeraj Madhav As Ajmal

foster son of Krishnamurthy and Lakshmi. Unlike Neeraj's usual
characters, Ajmal is a role which has provided him the scope to

which also has some lighter shades in it.
Music: Anil Johnson
Even though Anil Johnson's songs lack are easily forgettable,
the musician has made a mark with his impressive background score,
which perfectly sinks in with the mood of the movie.
Other Technical Aspects
Ayoob Khan's perfect editing deserves a special mention. It is
commendable that the movie has stayed away from unnecessary add-ons
like romantic and sentimental sequences, which makes it a crispy
watch. Tony, who has handled the VFX has done a great job.
Even though the storyline is something we have seen before,
director Jeethu Joseph has made Oozham a memorable movie
experience with his different treatment style. It is surely a
comeback for him after the disappointing Life Of
It is not a conventional thriller, which offers several twists
and turns, but is surely a unique film which stands out with its
making style. But, the movie lacks clarity at certain points and
will leave you in doubts, at the climax.
An unconventional, unique, revenge drama which will keep you engaged.
