    Cast and Performance

    Lal, who plays the title character Tony, once again proves his mettle as an actor. The actor is completely fantastic in his role, as a psychotic abusive killer. But in some portions, he adapts the mannerisms of the psychopath characters which he has done in the past, which makes the character look repititive.

    Asif Ali and Miya George delivers decent performance as the lead pair. Biju Menon and Lena, who plays the other pivotal roles excelles in their performances.

    Script and Direction

    The script which is penned by Lal Jr himself fails to keep the grip through out the film. The film enters into a slow pace in some portions while rushes in a hurry in the rest.

    The over-usage of violence makes the movie a visual torture at some portions. But the last 20 minutes succeeds to maintain the standard with some thrilling twists and pounding action sequences.

    Technical Aspects

    Alby excells in the cinematography. Ratheesh Raj's editing is not upto expectations, as the movie either lags or rushes at times.

    Songs and Background Score

    Deepak Dev disappoints with the solo song; but excells with the background score, which completely sinks into the mood of the movie.

    Verdict

    Hi I'm Tony is a brave attempt to narrate a so-called psychological thriller story in a new narrative style.
