The performances of the actors in this film were brilliant. Mohanlal is born to play these kinds of roles and he looked too good for someone who’s been drinking constantly, I loved how to fit his transformation into an investigating officer felt while watching it happen on screen! There weren’t many scenes where you could see some serious acting going down but when they did occur? You better believe that everyone nailed their expressions.
The film delivers in terms of performances. Unni Mukundan was good as Zakariah, he looks amazing during some intense conversation and Anushree plays her part well with the help of Leona Lishoy’s acting skills which is worthy enough for any movie-going audience to watch! The other actors also did a decent job at what they had done but it would’ve been better if there were more scenes where we can see Shivada Nair playfully smiling together or interacting closely among themselves rather than having very few interactions throughout most parts especially since this character seems like someone who wouldn’t fit into established groups easily–she may even seem lonely sometimes?
There are many positives to talk about with this film. The first thing that stands out is how much it picks up momentum and stays interesting from beginning to the end, especially for such an unconventional story like the one told here! There are also some twists in store that will thrill you. I’ll admit I didn’t see them coming at all-and great music during most scenes as well (although not exclusively). And lastly – locations? Amazing?! You’re forgetting about them already!
The film’s slow-burn thriller pace may look dull to many viewers in the beginning, but once it gets going there are plenty of twists and turns that will keep you on your toes. The introduction sequences for Mohanlal looked stretchy as well I think they could have been shortening up a little bit? And finally…the editing was one area where this movie lacked potentiality (no pun intended).
The film is a great watch if you love crime thrillers and have the patience to sit through an hour-and-a-half of drawn-out storytelling. The 12th Man streaming on Hotstar has subtitles in Malayalam, so it’s easy enough for anyone who doesn’t speak English as their first language (or even worse: both!
