Ramaleela Review & Rating|
'Ramaleela' which features Dileep in the titular role hit theatres amidst a lot of confusion and anticipation. Directed by debutant Arun Gopi, the movie is a political thriller which revolves around Ramanunni, an MLA of revolutionary party CDP who crosses over to the opposition as their candidate for the by-election. Things take a bad turn as he is found as the suspect in a political murder case. Ramanunni's attempts to prove his innocence form the rest of the plot. The cast includes Prayaga Martin, Radhika Sharath Kumar, Siddique, Renji Panicker, Mukesh and Sreenivasan among others in prominent roles.
Dileep has done a quite a remarkable performance in the movie. While there is dilemma over whether or not to call the 'Ramaleela' a comeback movie for Dileep, it is indeed a comeback movie for Radhika Sharathkumar who has outshine her co-actors in most of the scenes. The rest of the cast has done justice to their respective roles while Prayaga Martin, the leading lady of the movie, has been successful in leaving a mark even in her minimal role.
Arun Gopy has made a grand debut by delivering a decent a political thriller. The movie, although resonate with earlier movies of Sachy and lacks originality at many points, it keeps the viewer hooked to the story till the end. Music by Gopi Sunder and cinematography by Shaji Kumar have added positively to the overall watching experience of the movie.
Final Verdict: A decent political thriller which displays no exceptional intelligence or offers anything memorable!
