Director

Jubith Namradath

Star Cast

Suraj Venjarammoodu, Rima Kallingal

DirectorJubith Namradath’s Aabhasam has beenmade as a satire that exposes some hypocrisies that is seen around in thesociety and also about certain mindsets that need to be changed. 

It allbegins from a luxury bus travel agency curiously named ‘Democracy’ atBengaluru. Their buses are called Gandhi, Godse, Marx, Jinnah and Ambedkar. Weare introduced to the travelers in one of the buses, which has Alancier as thedriver and Suraj Venjarammoodu as the conductor. 

There is abearded swami heading for Sabarimala, a young woman who is going home afterreceiving an urgent call from her mom, a drunkard with a roving eye, a pastorand his wife, a few foreign tourists, a family and so on. Rima Kallingal playsone of them in this bus who is travelling alone. 

A certaincross section of a normal society is in attendance. What next? We wait forthings to happen. But we soon learn that besides some random statements, a fewcomments and some generalizations this one has no real stuff that keeps usengaged. 

Aftermaking the viewers wait for quite long, the story takes some steps ahead with atwist. By then it is pretty sure that this one is an exercise in vain. Wereally wish that the director indeed made some strong statements but this oneends up as a big disappointment. That too during these times when so muchdisturbing things are happening in the society. 

Though itis a role that is barely challenging for him, Suraj Venjarammoodu performs hispart in a dedicated manner. Rima Kallingal has nothing much to do. 

Aabhasam got into news when the film had trouble withthe Censor Board. It is not clear what irked the Censors, but this one is moreof a futile trip that is barely interesting. Go for this trip at your own riskonly! 

Aabhasam review- Verdict: Below average
