Ayyappanum Koshiyum review: An engaging drama



Star Cast

Prithviraj, Biju Menon

In Ayyappanum Koshiyum, writer and director Sachy narrates how a small incident can become dangerous as the two men involved in it take matters into disastrous levels with their egos.

Ayyappan Nair (Biju Menon) is a sub-inspector nearing retirement age, working in a police station in the Attappady forest area. One night, while the police team is on a routine checking, a retired havildar named Koshi Kurian (Prithviraj) is caught for carrying liquor in a prohibited area.

 Koshi, who is on his way to Ooty with his driver, is a wealthy man from Kattappana and the son of a well-connected political figure. When Koshi slaps an excise officer and behaves rudely to the cops during the interrogation, Ayyappan Nair arrests him and charges the ex-serviceman under serious sections.

Later, when the cops learn that Koshi is someone with powerful connections, their attitude changes and they start treating him in a nice manner. But an offended Koshi decides to take revenge for the humiliation that he had to face until then.

With a tight script and good dialogues, Sachy has packaged this one competently, which makes the viewer entertained throughout the nearly three-hour runtime. The visuals by Sudeep Elamon and the music by Jakes Bejoy adds to the effect in a big way.

In a role where his character has to lose the ‘heroism battle’ at times, Prithviraj scores as an actor. He is earnest and convincing as the arrogant havildar, who is bent upon teaching the sub-inspector a lesson. Meanwhile, Biju Menon plays his character remarkably well, in a subtle manner. The rest of the cast have done their parts really well.

Ayyappanum Koshiyum is narrating a story where a rather normal situation develops into serious levels due to the egoistic attitude of two men. It’s an engaging drama. Go for it!
