Story: Shahi Kabir

Nayattu directed by Martin Prakkat is a crime thriller film that has a gripping screenplay and an ending that is realistic. Nayattu stars Kunchako Boban, Joju Geoge, and Nimisha Sjayan in the lead roles. The film also stars late actor Anil Nedumangadu.

Martin Prakkat has hit the right chords with this thriller flick. The story revolves around Praveen, Maniyan, and Sunitha, three police officers who are accused of a false crime. The three accused flee from place to place, with cops behind them, in the run for life and escape against the false allegation on them. Will they be able to prove themselves guilty? Will they be able to escape from this ambuscade forms the rest of the story.  

Nayattu is a finger that is pointed against the corrupt system and dominance of influential people over the morally straightforward ones. It also pokes the unethical and felonious deeds inside politics and how it disguises itself fooling the people. It speaks about how the system is from inside and not what we see or hear every time is the truth.

The film’s premise is fresh, with a very raw and realistic treatment. The locations and cinematography of the film were arresting, making it really engaging. It keeps its audience engaged and thrilled for the most part, but few anticipating elements could have done better.    

Keeping the cat and mouse game as the base storyline, the director internally picks at the corrupt government and how politics manipulates many incidents by changing the entire scenario, blindfolding people. He delineates how parties and politicians deceive the media and people, and how it exploits people’s trust. 

The main leads Kunjako Boban, Joju George, and Nimisha Sajayan have delivered neat performances with realistic acting. The film is mostly inclined towards realistic making, with a few cinematic add ons to boost it. From the leads to the supporting cast, everyone has done justice to their roles with the right amount of emotions conveyed.  

Written by Shahi Kabir, Nayattu has a tight script that keeps you glued to your seats. The film has a terrific first half, followed by a neatly written second half. Though the writing is raw and lifelike, there are few quixotic elements, in a minute amount, to keep the storyline tight. The ending of the film is experimental considering the thrillers that the audience is used to. The climax is powerful and close to real life, but the reception from the audience may vary from person to person. 

The cinematography by Shyju Khalid is wonderful. The locations and the visuals are catchy. The transition of locations has been dealt smoothly without losing the continuity, and the credits goes to Shyju Khalid’s shots and Mahesh Narayanan’s editing. The run from place to place has been captured brilliantly. 

Martin Prakkat’s direction deserves a thumbs up. He has helmed the film fine, without tiring the audience. Though the film is engaging enough, there could have been more nail-biting moments, which could have raised the bars much higher for this film. But as a whole, the film is a good watch, which will definitely keep you entertained.
