Script & Direction - Jinu Abraham

It is never easy to make an investigative thriller, especially in Malayalam where the film will be subjected to a lot of scrutiny among the audiences. Jinu Abraham has dared to make such a film, that too with a different concept, not much discussed in Malayalam cinema.

The director in him takes his own time to set the pace of the film in the first half and that might give a lagging feel to the audiences. But still, such a slow build up is quite necessary for the film, to score high on the emotional sequences.

Importantly, the biggest challenge for the director was to keep the audiences thrilled and he has been able to hold the audiences tight with a taut narration.

Yes, at times the film moves in a predictable manner, which is a negative but Jinu Abraham pull the film back on track, at the right time. Even the sequences, which had the chances to go down as cliched ones have gained a new lease of life with the smart making style of Jinu Abraham.

DOP - Jithu Damodar

Well, Jithu Damodar is definitely a talent to reckon with. He has set some brilliant frames, capturing the amazing landscapes of Scotland, with the backing of a different tone. You ought to watch it from the theatres to taste the real essence of his splendid work.

Music & BGM - Deepak Dev

In fact, the songs of the movie didn't sound impressive during the time of their release. But, upon watching the movie, one would understand why Deepak Dev has opted for slow yet soothing tunes. The BGM of then film is also splendid, suiting particularly well to the mood of the movie.

The editing of the movie is good but there are instances where it could have been a bit more slick. The action sequences of the movie ar top notch, especially those in the climax sequence.


Adam Joan is a nicely crafted thriller, which will keep the audiences glued to their seats. The film has some minor drawbacks but they don't affect the overall flow of the movie. The movie is definitely a different experience for the Malayalam film audiences. Go for it!
