Sathyam Paranja Viswasikkumo Malayalam Movie Review
What director G. Prajith's second film offers is a faithful and truly convincing tale. 'Sathyam Paranja Viswasikkuvo'follows a five-member group of concrete workers, who are fond of liquor and involving in booze activities. The masons are passionate about consuming alcohol than excelling in their works. Award-winning scenarist Sajeev Pazhoor of 'Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum' fame focuses on the life of Suni and how his obsession with alcohol lands him in trouble.
Biju Menon as mason Suni is highly flexible and at ease in every context of the film that has naturally prime attention to his family. At home, Geetha (Samvrutha Sunil) is fed up with Suni's wayward drinking habit. Hailing from a good family, she finds it difficult to control him after their register marriage. Prajith gives a good description of the helplessness of Geetha and her daughter. One early morning, while going on his bicycle, Suni witnesses an incident and this changes his destiny.
Sudhi Koppa as Thamara represents an addicted drunkard and the character is a little dimwit in his demeanour. Among Suni's friends, Prasad (Dinesh Prabhakar) cherishes the dream of going abroad as a mason.
Sajeev's script has oodles of familiar terrains for the audience and thus it loses sheen after a promising take off. It obviously struggles to generate the required punch for riveting progress and the plot gradually gives hints of a predictable conclusion. Though the movie depicts the ill-effects of liquor consumption in life, 'Sathyam Paranja Viswasikkuvo' lacks the real essence of writing that spruces up a script.
Karuppai (Alencier) is expelled from his house by his wife due to his excessive drinking habit. Sometimes he requests his daughter to recommend for him to his wife to invite him to home.
Albeit sensible in parts, one can easily notice the trait of slipshod writing in vital areas where the humour-intended situations yield mediocre effect.
Samvrutha's Geetha is a typical homemaker and she behaves in a predictable line. Although struggling in life, she never curses Suni. The emotions are highly perfunctory among characters and its intensity is volatile throughout. Prajith seldom seems to be taking any extra effort in the execution to communicate the real intention of the plot.
The attempt to emphasize how the major incident of the plot also affects the politics of the panchayat goes haywire here. Moreover, there is a chasm between the story of Suni and politician Vincent's (Dharmajan Bolgatty) bid to scupper the confidence motion in the panchayat. The latter is an insignificant part of the story but a good amount of time has gone into it in the narration.
Shehnad Jalal captures a host of nice frames and the background score by Bijibal is also notable. 'Sathyam Paranja Viswasikkuvo' needs some more active involvement in the writing part to jazz up its appeal. It gives glimpses of betterment in between before withdrawing into a complacent mode. The substance the movie puts forward is interesting but the circumstances are hardly enough to make you satisfy fully.
