Director?Sunil?Karyattukara`s?Pakida?is?meant?to?be?a?thriller?with?some?genuine messages.?Though?the?intention?is?noble,?the?film?is?let?down?by?an?inept?script?and?not?so competent?presentation.

Aadi?(Asif?Ali)?prefers?to?spend?his?time?fooling?around?with?his?group?of?friends.?And?as?it is?mandatory?in?such?scenes?these?days,?mostly?harmless?flirting,?booze?sessions?and?so on?ensue.?A?major?portion?of?the?first?half?is?wasted?with?these?detailing,?most?of?which has?not?much?relevance?to?the?actual?plot.

The?story?takes?an?unprecedented?turn?when?a?drinking?session?on top?of a?building?goes wrong.?Now,?to?get?some?money,?Aadi?decides?to?sell?off?his?car.?A?mystery?man?named George?Koshy?Anthraper?(Biju?Menon)?appears?and?he?is?ready?to?shell?out?any?sum?to buy?the?old?car.?But?he?has?a?demand;?Aadi?needs?to?go?with?him?on?a?drive?to?a?Tamil Nadu?village.

The?film?is?strongly?based?on?a?feeling?against?a?ghastly?act?that?happened?in?Kerala, which?remains?in?the?minds?of?most?people?as?a?never?ending?pain.?The?sincerity?of?the makers?of?the?film?needs?to?be?appreciated?but?the?question?is?how?effectively?all?these have?be?translated?into?an?entertaining?way.?And?that?is?exactly?where?the?film?falters.

The?visuals?by?Sameer?Haq?and?the?music?by?Biji?Bal?are?good.

Asif?Ali,?who?is?not?really?known?for?his?acting?bones,?manages?to?come?up?with?an?okay show?at?best.?Biju?Menon,?playing?a?54?year?old?with?a?beard?and?walking?stick,?is?just about?fine.?The?supporting?cast,?which?includes?the?heroines?Malavika?and?Apoorva?Bose, doesn`t?impress?much.

Pakida?is?an?outrage?against?a?brutal?act?by?a?devil.?The?makers?of?this?film?had?lots?to narrate,?but?it?was?just?that?they?were?not?really?sure?on?exactly?how?to?go?with?it.?Now,?the decision?is?all?yours!

Verdict:?Average
