Onayum Aatukuttiyum Review


Onayum Attukuttiyum has two main characters that reminds us of wolf and lamb story.

Mysskin has penned the script based on this concept. The movie, which is strongly driven by the screenplay, is dark but keeps you hooked till the end. The story telling part is different and people would love it for sure. People have to note that there are no songs or heroine in Onayum Attukuttiyum.

Well, the whole movie happens during one night. Medical student Chandran (Sri) founds an injured man, who was shot by bullets, on the streets.

At a time of torrential overdose of promotions for films where ‘promote or peril’ is the mantra, here is Mysskin’s Onaayum Aattukuttiyum (OA).

Mysskin’s Onaayum Aattukuttiyum is marked by apt performances, engaging screen play, intelligent narration and a sincere execution accompanied by technical brilliances. It has been a while we got to see a thriller well made and OA fits the bill perfectly.

Verdict: A dark, heavy, well made engaging suspense thriller; Mysskin returns to his form

Mysskin is back with a bang. His latest Onayum Aatukuttiyum is a gripping edge of the seat emotional dark thriller which also entertains. The director whose last outing was the disastrous Mugamoodi is on familiar grounds here.

Mysskin style of shot composition takes its own time and is long drawn out. If the film would have been a little crisper the drag would not have been felt.

On the whole, Onayum Aatukuttiyum is a stylishly made thriller and a class act. Not to be missed.

A man lying on the road in the middle of the night is critically injured by a bullet shot. He is drenched in a pool of blood. Bystanders look at him and even sympathise, but nobody cares to give him medical attention.

This is how Mysskin mocks at the society we live in the opening scene of his film "Onayum Aatukuttiyum" (OA).

OA is a cut above Mysskin's previous works. He crushes all cinematic cliches with this effort and manages to gives us a film we deserve.
