The seeds of her dreams are sown in her school days and they burgeon along with the support of her father. Here the protagonist Pallavi represents every girl, who aspires to reach the pinnacle of their ambition.
Written by Bobby and Sanjay, 'Uyare' has every reason to fly high as it immaculately reflects the dilemma and the desperation of a girl mired in the game of cruel destiny. But she never stoops down to her difficult ordeals, instead shows tremendous courage to face the hiccups. The touching tale has its relevance in the modern age, thus this takeoff is meaningful and inevitable.
Parvathy Thiruvothu is absolutely outstanding in the role of Pallavi, and her observant performance gives the audience instant access to her mental agony and determination to take life forward. Pallavi is hesitant to be the mascot of wounds inflicted on her. Instead, she reinvents herself and laps up the opportunities. Like most of their women characters, here too, Bobby and Sanjay open new firmament for Pallavi. The writers suggest a new way of attitude towards women like Pallavi.
Debutant Manu Ashokan, who helms 'Uyare,' emphatically narrates the stark reality about how a patriarchal society poses a hindrance in fulfilling a girl's dreams. Pallavi dreams of becoming a pilot and his father, played effortlessly by Siddique, sends her to Mumbai.
Asif Ali plays Govind, an obsessive and highly sensitive lover of Pallavi. From his first scene itself, Govind spreads enough reason to be hated due to his pesky demeanor.
Despite its minor shortcomings, 'Uyare' is single-handedly guided by Parvathy Thiruvothu as she admiringly portrays an acid attack victim's struggle for survival and acceptance in social life. At one stage, Pallavi's elder sister leaves the hospital, asking her friend Sarita D Costa (Anarkali Marakkar) to look after her. This scene is a subtle portrayal of one's aversion to an acid attack victim albeit there is blood relationship.
Vishal Rajasekharan (Tovino Thomas) appears as an erratic fellow but as the Vice President of Cloud Nine Airlines, he tries to implement revolutionary changes in the airline. Tovino as a suave young businessman brings in worthy impact on the movie and he deeply immerses into the skin of the character.
Mukesh Muraleedharan's visuals claim novelty especially the sequence of flights. Editor Mahesh Narayanan adequately trims the proceedings by avoiding any dragging elements, and Gopi Sundar lends his good support in the music department. The flaws are ignorable as it truly gives the impression of an exquisitely crafted film with the aid of a meticulously penned script.
Good performances by Parvathy, Siddique, Asif & Tovino.
