Vimaanam Review & Rating|
Debutant Pradeep M Nair's Vimaanam starring Prithviraj in the lead role is a much-anticipated movie. The movie is assumed to be marked among Prithviraj's career best by movie buffs and going by the stills and the trailer, it has all chances to be so. Written by the director himself, the movie also stars newbie Durga Krishna, Lena, Anarkali Marikkar, Saiju Kurup, and Alencier Ley in lead roles among others. The rustic look of characters and the backdrop has worked in favor of the movie. Songs composed by Gopi Sunder has also been well-received among the audience. Well, does the movie lives up to the expectation of the audience and the pre-release hype it managed to create? Let's see.
Vimaanam, inspired by the real-life story of Saji M Thomas, revolves around the life of Venkiti who dreams of making an aircraft. While people terms him crazy and considers him dreams impossible, his girlfriend Janaki stands by him. After going through a series of failures Venkiti one day realizes his dream of flying over his village in his own aircraft with a little help from his father figure Roger. Meanwhile, one drastic step taken by Janaki to help her man changes his life forever.
Vimaanam is a well-shot movie which is rich with some endearing performances. Prithviraj who plays the title character Venkiti appears in two looks; one as a naive village boy and as a grey-haired scientist. While the actor has delivered a justifying performance, female lead Durga Krishna who played an equally important role opposite to Prithviraj has made an impressive debut. Another stunning performance was by actor Alencier Ley who steals the show with his perfect timing. His perfectly slips into his character and is very convincing. Others including Saiju Kurup, Lena, Sudheer Karaman and Anarkali Marikkar have also done justice to their respective roles.
Pradeep M Nair, the writer and director of Vimaanam, has managed to bring in a lot of freshness in narrative and theme without the naivety of a first-timer. But the movie could have been better had he been given a little less prominence to the romance which towards the end offers the viewer nothing new. Gopi Sunder's music perfectly gell with scenes while Shehnad Jalal has done a fine job with the cinematography of the film.
Final Verdict: Vimaanam is a beautifully shot, enjoyable film for all kind of moviegoers.
