There are certain special elements that we expect in a Sathyan Anthikad movie. Add to that the beauty of Fahadh’s acting. Then we have ‘Njan Prakashan’ a clean entertainer that can be watched with family. The director and script writer have tried to portray the Bengali workers and the attitude of Malayalis not to practise the skills they learnt in this film.
Prakashan is a typical malayali who finds fault with anything and everything that he comes across. But eventually he accepts the reality and returns to the soil. The story which progresses through humour and emotions ends with an enlightening thought. It is enlivened by many funny situations. It depicts the life of Bengali employees in Kerala.
Organic farming and fighting cancer without drugs are all favourite topics of Sreenivasan. Most of the times, it would go out of hands. But, this time he has been able to handle this well with the help of the director.
The Bengali song in the movie keeps lingering in memory. S Kumar’s cinematography, Shaan Rahman’s background score, K Rajagopal’s editing and Prashant Madhavan’s art direction altogether made the movie enjoyable. We should salute the director for including the names of each person in minor role in the last title card. It is a positive gesture indeed.
Fahadh has flexibly demonstrated the life of Prakashan who changes his name as PR Akash through a gazette publication. Fahadh’s selection of a timid character after the action movie ‘Varathan’ is commendable. Other actors should make him a role model in selecting roles beyond a consistent image. Gopalji played by Sreenivasan, Nikhila Vimal’s Salomi and KPAC Lalitha’s Panayichechi are the other prominent characters. Devika Sanjay has done her role without the anxieties of a debutant.
