    Oozham Movie Review: An Appealing Revenge Drama!

    By Akhila Menon

    Oozham is the revenge drama, which stars Prithviraj in the lead role. The movie is written & directed by Jeethu Joseph, and produced by C George and Anto Padinjarekkara for Finetune Pictures.

    Oozham Story

    Surya is a young man who hails from Coimbatore and works in the USA. He is extremely attached to his family, which consists of his father Krishnamurthy, mother Lakshmi, elder brother Parthasarathy, and younger sister Aishwarya.

    But, some unexpected incidents severely affect his family, and the lands family members in some unfortunate situations. How Surya finds out the culprits behind his family's misery and punishes them, forms the plot.

    Meet the cast & crew of Oozham here.....

    Prithviraj As Surya Krishnamurthy

    Prithviraj is just perfect as Surya Krishnamurthy, a young man who seeks revenge for the tragedy faced by his family. He has excelled in both emotional and lighter sequences, with his controlled performance.

    Written & Directed By Jeethu Joseph

    Writer-director Jeethu Joseph, has successfully weaved a perfect revenge drama, with a slight touch of romance and sentimental elements. He has experimented with a never-seen-before narrative pattern, which makes the movie a very different experience.

    Balachandra Menon As Krishnamurthy

    Balachandra Menon, the veteran actor-director who plays Krishnamurthy, is just perfect as the loving yet strict father, who is also a very honest government servant.

    Divya Pillai

    Divya Pillai, the Ayaal Njanalla fame actress who essays the female lead in the movie, is okay in her role. But the actress surely needs to brush up her skills.

    Neeraj Madhav As Ajmal

    Neeraj Madhav, the actor-dancer has perfectly played Ajmal, the foster son of Krishnamurthy and Lakshmi. Unlike Neeraj's usual characters, Ajmal is a role which has provided him the scope to perform.

    Rasna Pavithran As Aishwarya

    Rasna Pavithran, the newcomer depicts Aishwarya, the younger sister. She has neatly played her part, despite this being her first film.

    Kishor Satya As Parthasarathy

    Kishor Satya, the popular actor-television anchor plays the character Parthasarathy, the elder brother of Surya. Even though his role is a short one, Kishor has delivered a memorable performance.

    The Rest Of The Star Cast

    Seetha, who essays Lakshmi, has nothing much to do in her unnoticeable role. The rest of the star cast, including Pasupathi, Jayaprakash, Sampath Raj, Sreejith Ravi, Irshad, etc. played their parts neatly.

    Cinematography: Shamdat Sainudheen

    Shamdat Sainudeen is the director of photography. His perfect visuals are surely a great plus point to the intense revenge drama, which also has some lighter shades in it.

    Music: Anil Johnson

    Even though Anil Johnson's songs lack are easily forgettable, the musician has made a mark with his impressive background score, which perfectly sinks in with the mood of the movie.

    Other Technical Aspects

    Ayoob Khan's perfect editing deserves a special mention. It is commendable that the movie has stayed away from unnecessary add-ons like romantic and sentimental sequences, which makes it a crispy watch. Tony, who has handled the VFX has done a great job.

    Overall View

    Even though the storyline is something we have seen before, director Jeethu Joseph has made Oozham a memorable movie experience with his different treatment style. It is surely a comeback for him after the disappointing Life Of Josutty.

    It is not a conventional thriller, which offers several twists and turns, but is surely a unique film which stands out with its making style. But, the movie lacks clarity at certain points and will leave you in doubts, at the climax.


    An unconventional, unique, revenge drama which will keep you engaged.
