      Fireman is the action-thriller directed by Deepu Karunakaran. Mammootty plays the central character, firefighter Vijay in the movie. Unni Mukundan appears in a pivotal role. Nyla Usha essays the female lead in the movie.

      Salim Kumar, Siddique, Shivaji Guruvayoor, Hareesh Perady, Sreekumar, Sreerag Nambiar, Manu Varma etc plays the supporting roles in the movie. Fireman is penned by Deepu Karunakaran himself. Sunoj Velayudhan handles the cinematography, V Saajan handles the editing and Rahul Raj composes the music.

      Fireman Story

      Fire force officer Vijay (Mammootty), subordinate Shahjahan (Unni Mukundan) enters an accident spot for rescue mission. The accident, which involved a tanker lorry, turns even more worse, when the LPG gas starts leaking. The fire force team faces several hurdles; including the non-cooperation from the side of police force, led by Sherin Thomas IPS (Nyla Usha).

      During the rescue mission, Vijay and team come across a situation, which leads them to evacuate a jail, which is situated in the danger zone. How the team manages the situation and successfully completes the mission forms the rest of the story.

      Fireman Cast And Performances

      Mammootty completely steals the show as fire force officer Vijay. The completely fits into the character with his power-packed act, excellent dialogue delivery and well maintained physique. Unni Mukundan, who played Shahjahan, completely fits into the role; but needs some improvements in the case of acting skills.

      Nyla Usha delivers a decent act as Sherin Thomas IPS and looks exceptionally good in the police uniform. Another actor, who did a fantastic job is Salim Kumar, who appeared in a brief yet important role. Rest of the cast, including Siddique, Shivaji Guruvayoor, Hareesh Perady, Sreekumar, Sreerag Nambiar and Manu Varma did complete justice to their roles.

      Script And Direction

      The loosely executed script is one of the major minus points of the movie. The screenplay lacks a completeness and leaves the audience with many questions in the end.

      As a director, Deepu Karunakaran did complete justice to his not-so-brilliant script. The flaws in the screenplay is well concealed with the perfect execution.

      Technical Aspects

      Sunoj Velayudhan's cinematography is just fine. V Saajan's editing is perfect in the first half; but goes out of hand in the second half. The graphics works are not upto standards and looks completely artificial at certain points.

      Back Ground Score

      The movie doesn't have any songs. Background score by Rahul Raj is perfect at certain portions; but ends up as average in some other portions.

      Verdict

      Kudos to team for materialising India's first fire force based movie. Overall, a partially accomplished mission.

      Perfect Action Thriller
