Achayans, is one of the big Malayalam movie releases of this weekend. The multi-starrer movie, directed by Kannan Thamarakkulam, is touted to be an out-and-out entertainer with some suspense elements, as well. The film has been scripted by popular screen writer Sethu. Achayans, produced by C K Padmakumar is brought to theatres by Rejaputhra release.
The story of Achayans revolves around the Thottathil family. Roy Thottathil (Jayaram) is one of the senior most members of the family. Roy & his brothers decide to go for a trip. The story takes a turn when they meet two girls, Reetha (Amala Paul) & Prayaga (Anu Sithara). What happens later has been narrated with some thrilling moments in Achayans.
The film had a good storyline but at the same time, the script falters at parts. The writer in him has been able to establish each of the characters and unify them to the main storyline. He has also done a good job in providing some thrilling elements in the script. But still, the average work in the scripting department pulls down the film, at times. Achayans also features actors like Ramesh Pisharody, Dharmajan Bolghatty, Siddique, Janardhanan, Maniyanpilla Raju etc., in important roles.
Achayans is filled with moments of fun and thrill. At the same time, the film had the capability to bring in more such moments, with the plot that they had to narrate.
Probably, it is the first half of the movie, which hasn’t lived up to the expectations. The initial half has been dedicated completely to establish the Achayans gang. Some of the comical moments work out well, whereas certain others fall flat.
