Storyline: Sara, a blind sculptor, seeks justice after suffering trauma. She contends with the legal system and her own resilience to find resolution. Sara, A blind girl is sexually harassed by an intruder. Her Family seeks help from Vijaya Mohan, A lawyer who hasn’t practiced for years. With Her resilience and Vijaya Mohan’s intelligence, they try to find justice in The Indian Legal System. Even with a predictable storyline Jeethu Joseph’s mastery of scriptwriting with Shanthi Mayadevi’s knowledge as an advocate makes this engaging and effective. Jeethu Joseph has always been a better writer than a director and there are a lot of instances in the movie that clearly shows that aspect. Some of the smaller characters’ acting was not very good, the music was overused a lot and there were a few things that could’ve been trimmed out. But when it works, the film works great. Even though, it’s not something very novel, Mohanlal saying some dialogues did make me clap hard, knowing that I’m sitting in a packed theatre with a lot of families. Anaswara and Siddique were brilliant in their roles and Mohanlal has done a role that is subtle, vulnerable and serious in a very effective way after a long time. Despite the film using easy ways to tell a lot of things, despite the plot being nothing new, it being not new makes more of a case of how it is still so important in every aspect, due to which I was very satisfied by the end of the movie.
