Shyam Dhar and team made a spectacular thriller. It should be an another hit of thriller kind of movie in malayalam.
Prithviraj fans had been desperate for the release of his next film 7th day. The movie release was to clash with Mamooty's Gangster yesterday. But the makers decided to push the release date by a day. Prithviraj's most anticipated Malayalam movie 7th day hit screens today.
The movie written by debutant Akhil Paul is a crime drama. Prithviraj Sukumaran plays an ageing IPS officer on the trail of an unnatural case. Prithviraj has also crooned the title track of the film. His first song was Suryamukham for Puthiyamugham and the next, Vadakku Vadakku, for Urumi. The movie has been extensively shot in Ooty, Wagamon and Earnakulam. Theatre artist Vinay Fort of Shutter fame plays a journalist. The Prithviraj starrer got a clean certificate from the censor board.. Kollywood baddie Yog Japee will mark his Malayalam debut as a villain in the movie. The lead actor sports a salt-and-pepper look in the movie
Prithviraj on his Facebook page said that no other film of his has garnered so much exhilaration among the online community than this. That too for a movie helmed by debutants is quite baffling.

Such has been the adroitness he exhibited in choosing his roles for the past two years. Prithviraj's dialogue in that teaser in his deep, majestic, baritone did give goosebumps to many.

But today as the film hits the theatres, after the festival of democracy that the state witnessed, it's up to the movie buffs to decide the festival winner at the theatres.

The Shyamdhar directorial 7th Day, penned by Akhil Paul travails the investigation story of an unregistered case by David Abraham (Prithviraj) in 7 days, which commences on Christmas day and culminates on the New Year's eve. 

David Abraham sports a stylish salt n pepper look while the youngsters in the cast Tovino Thomas, Anu Mohan, Vinay Fort, Janani Iyer, Praveen Prem were a bit off colour in their performances. Vinay Fort seemed to be the better of the lot. The first half moves at slow pace, for setting up the plot and the interval punch makes you wait for the brisk, intriguing second half in optimism.
It shifts gears in the second and the climax does score a point. The director Syamdhar could have used Prithviraj the actor instead of Prithvi the star. Akhil Paul's script, at times, has some awkward dialogues.
Sujith Vasudev has given a dark shade to the frames and the lighting was brilliant. Deepak Dev's BGM was fine but not the songs.

Bottom Line : A Good Thriller Movie
Rating : 8 / 10
