Avatharam FDFS review, Avatharam Box office Report.Dileep plays Madhavan, a common man, who lives in the hilly regions of Idukki and is content with the simple life there, until the accidental death of his elder brother, a customs officer, brings him to Ernakulam. Lakshmi Menon plays Madhavan’s love interest, Manimeghala, an insurance company employee. Joy Mathews plays an underworld don.
Madhavan is now entrusted with the responsibility of taking care of his late brother’s wife and young daughter. When he learns that his brother died under mysterious circumstances, he wonders whether it was an accident or foul play was involved.Madhavan is determined to find out the truth.
Dileep’s Nadodimannan, Sringaaravelan and the recently released Ringmaster were all panned by the critics but the crowd puller in him made sure that these films do the business.
Avatharam, its a conventional revenge drama where a one man hero fight for the injustice done to him by some anti social elements. The story is repetitive and we have seen these genre many times from Shaji Kailas and from Joshiy himself.
The focus of the plot is on a young common man Madhavan Mahadevan who is an Engineering Graduate who hails from a remote village in Idukki. Due to an accident to his brother, Madhavan comes to the city but he gets caught up in certain incidents as he is forced to deal with social injustice and discrimination. How Madhavan faces this and how he reacts and rise up to meet the apathy and injustice is portrayed here in Avatharam that is scripted by Vyasan Edavanakkad.
The scripting has its loose ends especially the way in which things are taken care of by the protagonist in the latter stages and we get a feel as if everything is done pretty easily but the fast paced narration in the final hour makes us forget those loop holes. Also, the writing has made sure that the hero does not get a larger than life image mouthing long and heavy dialogues. The first half was a bit tiring and lengthy but it was compensated by a speedy post intermission session.
Dileep as Madhavan was ideal for the role and he did not go overboard unlike the movie Don while Lakshmi Menon did her part as the female lead. There is a long line up of supporting casts in the form of Joy Mathew, Sreeraman, Shammi Thilakan, Shajon, Devan, Babu Namboodiri, Janardhanan, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Siddhique, Joju, Ponnamma Babu etc.
Cinematography was ok while editing was not that smooth. A bit especially the unwanted scenes in the first half. Two songs were three crooned by Deepak Dev that were ok.
Though the film is a familiar and predictable revenge drama, its not a disappointment and a watchable one.
Rating : 7.5 / 10
