Cast, Crew & Performances
Dhyan Sreenivasan As Zachariah Pothan
The character Zachariah is an image-breaking role for Dhyan
Sreenivasan, but lies outside his comfort zone. The actor lacks the
energy demanded by the character, and his struggle is clearly
evident in his performance.
Aju Varghese, who appears as Das, is at his usual best. The
actor has played his part perfectly, and impresses with his comic
timing, once again.
Arjun Nandakumar As Aravindan
Arjun Nandakumar, who essays the character Aravindan, has done
complete justice to his role and has delivered a decent
Prayaga Martin As Bhama
Prayaga Martin, who appears as Zachariah Pothan's love interest
Bhama, has nothing much to do in her minimal role. But the actress
has succeeded in making a mark with her charming screen
The Supporting Cast
The supporting cast, including Deepak Parambol, Yasir Saleem,
Maniyanpilla Raju, Renji Panicker, Devan, Chemban Vinod Jose, Jewel
Mary, Gayathri Suresh, Abhirami, etc., are good in their respective
Director: Sajith Jagadnandan
Debutant director Sajith Jagadnandan makes a not-so-impressive
debut with this half-baked thriller. He loses his control over the
screenplay after a point. The attempt to recreate the 80's on
the silver screen, has failed miserably.
Screenplay & Dialogues
The screenplay, which is jointly written Deep S Nair and Sandeep
Sadanandan, lacks the crispiness. The interval and climax twists
fails to create an impact. The overly-dramatic dialogues are
another major drawback.
Cinematographer: Satheesh Kurup
Satheesh Kurup, who is best known for his works in Blessy's
Pranayam, Kalimannu, B Unnikrishnan's Mr. Fraud,
etc., scores with the decent cinematography, which makes a movie a
good visual experience.
Other Technical Aspects
The duration of the movie is just around 2 hours, and editor
Ranjan Abraham deserves a special mention for the same. Costume
designer Sameera Saneesh has done a wonderful job by recreating the
styles of 80's in its full glory. Art director Sabu Mohan has done
his part to near perfection.
Bijibal's songs are just fine. The background score is good at
most of the parts but was overly-used at several points. Sadly, the
National award winning musician fails to recreate his magic this
The lifeless screenplay, cliched comical and romantic sequences
and half-baked attempt to recreate the 80's and 90's on silver
screen makes Ore Mukham a disappointing
A disappointing campus thriller, which could have made in a much better way.
