Parvathy, Asif Ali, Tovino Thomas
There are not many films in Malayalam during recent times that affects you, like debutant director Manu Ashokan’s Uyare.
Pallavi Raveendran (Parvathy) is a spirited young girl, who knows pretty early in her life that she wants to be a pilot. She tries really hard and succeeds in moving closer in achieving her dream, when she joins a pilot training academy.
Pallavi is madly in love with Govind (Asif Ali), who can’t live without her but his extremely possessive nature makes it really difficult for her. As she joins for the pilot training, Govind becomes even more insecure.
If you have watched the trailer and followed the film’s publicity materials, it is pretty much known what to expect as the surprise turnaround to the story. We would rather let you enjoy it all on screen but this one is a riveting experience that will make you relate to the experiences that Pallavi goes through.
She is a normal girl with a heart of gold, who would inspire the world with her determination and grit, when she faces a rather terrible situation.
With an excellent script by Bobby and Sanjay, director Manu Ashokan packages an amazing story of courage here.
Once again, Parvathy shows what an amazing actor she is, with her matured performance. You just cannot take your eyes off her while she is on screen as she unleashes a top notch performance.
Asif Ali does his role convincingly, with all sincerity, while Tovino is a bundle of charm. The rest of the cast, which includes Sidhique, Pratap Pothen, Anarkali Marikar and Prem Prakash are also good.
Uyare is an overwhelming experience that narrates a highly relevant issue in a fabulous way. Don’t forget to carry a box of tissues while heading to the cinemas. Two big thumbs up for this one. It’s a must watch.
Uyare review: Genuine and heart-warming
