Ira Malayalam Movie Review

Feature Film | U
In this racy crime thriller, the engaging moments are flickering because of an inconsistent script. A more convincing treatment of the plot would have served the purpose.

The film-making language of debutant director Saiju S.S is fluent as the pace he adopts in the treatment keeps justice to the thriller genre. Right from the off, Saiju guides the viewers to the core issue of "Ira." This take off is accompanied by racy narration befitting to a thriller. While the execution is accomplished sans too many hiccups, the incidents are a little wayward to persuade us gulp down everything the story offers. Written by Naveen John, the screenplay is incoherent enough to sustain the enduring thrilling milieu, and once the suspense is revealed, well, you are not transfixed as the makers would have expected.


Like rifling through the pages of a book, the details are unfolded by the intervention of police officer Rajeev (Unni Mukundan), who investigates the alleged murder of Minister K.P. Chandi (Alancier). The accused, Dr. Aryan (Gokul Suresh), is behind the bars awaiting justice.


The film's energy is volatile and the appearance of Karthika aka Karthu (Miya Gimi George) gives some sort of momentum to the tale. Miya has a meaningful appearance and her vital character transcends the stereotypical roles she had essayed earlier.


Unni Mukundan effuses confidence in his performance and it seemingly grows along with the progress of the flick. Sankar Ramakrishnan as Jacob Chandi has prominence in the movie as well as Niranjana Anoop, who portrays Jennifer, Aryan's love interest. The proper structure of the movie is mainly bungled by the mediocre thriller tale to which your conscience would hesitate to agree fully. To be precise, several links connecting the thread are farfetched.


Saiju has made a decent attempt although the inconsistent script falters. A more convincing treatment of the plot would have served the purpose.

'Ira' is made solely for the box office. It caters to the frolicking film goers who come to the theatre in clusters and watch movies just to pass time or for camaraderie. They are happy with cheap jokes and masala dialogues and are the least bothered about the quality of a film. The movie does not satisfy even the primary need of having a convincing story line. The only attraction of the movie was the good camera work by Sudheer Surendran and the hummable melodies tuned by Gopi Sunder.
