    Odiyan is not an out-and-out mass entertainer as it has a different approach. Odiyan might not be a film that has lived up to the expectations but still it is a decent movie that keeps us engaged. Go in with less expectations and you might enjoy it.
    If the length could have been further trimmed, Odiyan would have been a highly engaging film even for the fans expecting a 'mass’ movie. Even otherwise Odiyan has good acting, a well thought-out script and brilliant action scenes that the family ..
    Odiyan is a movie that tricked the audience into believing that it is something about the mysteries of a man being an Odiyan. But sadly this nearly 3-hour long movie is pretty much a lackluster outdated attempt on creating a so-called mass entertai..

    Class movie. Any one interested in an acting career should definitely watch the movie just to watch observe and learn how mohanlal transforms himself in the night and gives a hint that he is hiding his animal instincts/charm even when he is in broad daylight having a cup of tea. A must watch movie for those who love cinema. One of the best fantasy movies that have ever come out in the malayalam movie world. And who is there better to portray odiyan the sorcerer who transforms to differnt animals that fly creep or crawl than mohanlal. Odiyan is a different movie that touches our hearts, makes us children again, makes us remember how we heard night time stories from our grandparents. Odiyan is a different experience from mass movies like aaram thampuran, narasimham or comedy flicks like kilukkam. Its a different movie from films like sphadikam or deevasuram. Its a fantasy movie that any movie lover will appreciate for years to come. If you are the type of person who have enjoyed night time stories when you were a child you will definitely like this movie. Dont go to the theatre expecting another pulimurigan. You will only be disappointed. The negative reviews regarding the movie especially regarding direction acting vfx etc I believe is just to pull down the movie. Any one who watches the movie will understand that. Every now and then a classic movie will unfold. Competitors who are unable to make such movies are always jealous and since this is an industry where lot of money is involved its quite natural to come against the movie. To play it down using social media. But its worth noting that we will be harming ourselves if this movie goes unnoticed. When some one offers us an excellent movie that is of a different genre from anything that we have seen until now I believe all of us movie lovers should grab that opportunity. Its same like how Harry Potter started a string of fantasy films in Hollywood. I hope that we malayales do have the sense to appreciate such movie makers and give hope for the movie makers so that other movie makers and those who are planning to enter into movie making will see the good response and start creating such movies.

    Something different subject to see, with the excellent performance from Mohanlal, Manju Warrier & Prakash Raj. Very beautiful songs with nice visual images along with some excellent stunts makes this movie something special. I enjoyed every bit of it. It seems like people with pre set expectations are disappointed.
