Script & Direction
Manu Ashokan, the former associate of late Rajesh Pillai makes a fantastic debut with this well-made survival drama. The director has brilliantly executed the neatly-written screenplay and has succeeded in bringing the best out of his actors. Manu Ashokan is definitely here to stay.
Bobby-Sanjay duo's brilliantly written screenplay is the backbone of the film. Even though the story line is highly predictable, the writers score with the wonderful characterisation and the sharpness in narrating the struggles of an acid attack survivor without going over the board. The simple yet sharp dialogues deserve a special applause.
Parvathy Thiruvothu, who essays the central character Pallavi, reminds us why she has been considered as one of the finest actresses of Malayalam cinema, with her subtle yet intense performance.
Asif Ali, who appears as Govind, plays the bossy, crooked, instantly dislikeable character to near perfection. Tovino Thomas who plays the super-charming Vishal, has done a great job. Siddique, who plays Pallavi's father, deserves special mention for his exceptional performance. The rest of the cast, including Anarkali Marakkar, Prathap Pothen, Prem Prakash, etc., are good in their respective roles.
Mukesh Muraleedharan, the DOP has done a great job by creating a perfect backdrop for the survival drama with great visualisation. The excellent editing by the senior editor Mahesh Narayanan has made Uyare a highly engaging watch.
Gopi Sundar's music, especially the background score is top notch. Dirty Hands, the team which created Parvathy look for the movie, deserves great applause.
Uyare is a brilliantly made film on acid attack survivors, which has some exceptional acting moments to offer. Do not miss this one!
