Picket 43 Movie Review: Worth A Watch!

Cast and Performance

Prithviraj, who portrays Havildar Harindran Nair, brilliantly plays the emotional scenes; but need to improve in lighter scenes. His performance as innocent light-hearted young man looks artificial at certain points. Javed Jaffrey delivers a power-packed performance as Mussharaf. 

Rest of the cast, including Renji Panicker, Sudheer Karamana, Hareesh Peradi, Anusha, Shoba Mohan and Sreerag Nambiar plays their respective roles to near perfection.

Script and Direction

Major Ravi makes a perfect comeback with the movie, which deals with a completely different theme unlike his earlier movies. The screenplay of the movie has its own flaws; but the director manages to conceal it with the wonderful visualisation and brilliant climax.

Technical Aspects 

Jomon T John's mind-blowing visuals are a real treat for the audience. Ranjan Abraham's edits and cuts hasn't met the standards; as the movie falls into low pace during the first half.

Songs and Background Score

Ratheesh Vega's songs fails to impress. Rex Vijayan's decent background score creates a perfect mood for the movie.


Watch Picket 43 for a different movie experience and the perfect climax.
