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 audience would enjoy.
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 But sadly this nearly 3-hour long movie is pretty much a lackluster outdated attempt on creating a so-called mass entertainer.
