A movie that revolves around the clash between two gangs of two high schools. And the problems that come in between and how they find the solutions.
Most of the characters were portrayed by newcomers with Mammootty,Arya, Prithviraj &Unni Mukundan along with them. All of them did a great job. Shankar Ramakrishnan and crew can be so proud that they contributed a handful of great young faces to Malayalam Industry. Akshay Radhakrishnan (Young Ayyappan) & Ashwin Gopinath (Young Ashwin Vasudev) did a tremendous performance and actor who portrayed the role ‘Attukal Sura’ what a performance. It can be sure all of them are the future gems of Malayalam Cinema. Prithviraj & Arya impressed with their roles and a superb cameo appearance of Mammootty.
The first half portrayed the clash between gangs of ‘Govt.Model Boys School’ & ‘ International School’. The first half was great with couple of fights and a bit of love story and all the ingredients. But it felt like a bit of lengthy due to some unnecessary scenes. The second half tells the story of facing their problems and solving them also a little bit of revenge. Mammootty plays the role of ‘John Abraham Palackal’ who is the brother of ‘Joy Abraham Palackal’. At a point John Abraham becomes the mentor of the Govt.School gang who guides these youngsters as they step from adolescence to adulthood.
It’s a story that has been a plot of all campus movies. But what makes it different is the way of telling the story. Shankar Ramakrishnan as a director showed us that he has some potential in him. The making of the film was entirely a different approach. The technical part of the film was excellent with a wonderful job from DOP department,and the fight. Kaecha Kampakdee who was the Action Director of Bahubali also did a great work in Pathinettam Padi. The fights with that background score..It was Lit.
Overall A film that cahses in on it’s technical side & background score heavily.Decent screenplay well executed by Shankar Ramakrishnan. Prithvi and Arya done their part very well. Superb cameo by Mammootty and Action sequences on top notch. Impressive One !
