Review : "Immanuel"

Simple and usual story, where once in a while everyone deals out with the situations that Immanuel faced in his life. Lal Jose tried to tell this story in a trenchant manner, however makers notion in this attempt looks a bit melodramatic. On the whole one would say that expectations goes high when it comes to Mammootty and Lal Jose's film. Essential goodness is there in the film "Immanuel" and it could be a good watch....

 The film narrates the life of Immanuel (Mammootty), who's been working in a Publishing firm, which is on the verge of close down and due to that Immanuel hasn't getting his salary for the last few months. His family consists of wife Annie (Reenu Mathews) and his
son Robin. Meanwhile Immanuel also loves his books and want to earn money for his family, so he decides to leave the job for the regular income and find the new job in the modern scaled insurance company by impressing interviewers in the board.

 In his new job Immanuel finds the new environment to meet the targets on time and his boss Jeevan Raj (Fahadh Faasil) always think about the profit, whatever the reason he wants the result won't matter if it achieved in an unethical way. One of their customer old women Khadeejumma (Sukumari) struggles to get her claim from the insurance company, in the middle of this Immanuel unlike others in the company offer his helping hand to everyone. With this nature Immanuel piled up with some fraud activities, which follows the rest of the story.

 Lal Jose's direction wasn't like his earlier best one's, on the go first half rounds around Immanuel's life and it lags some convincing style, while the second half compensate for the falls in first half. V C Ajeesh's script is nice with simple touch and dialogue delivery came up handy. Pradeep Nair's visuals tracks the best of shots and Ranjan Abraham made the necessary cuts to make it a watchable one. Songs give the feel of Immanuel, which has tuned by Afsal Yusuf and lyrics by Rafeeq Ahamed.

 Mammootty's character wasn't look challenging enough in terms of his repute, Immanuel's role falls in cakewalk for him. Reenu Mathews first outing looks out of touch, on other hand Fahadh Faasil done the best according to the characters need. With the scene of Sukumari amma, gave the sense of irreparable loss the Malayalam cinema. Nedumudi Venu, Ramesh Pisharody, Salim Kumar, Guinness Pakru, Sunil Sukhadha, Devi Ajith, Balachandran Chullikad, P Balachandran and others have justified their characters. For the banner of CYN-CYL Celluloid, George Sebastian is the producer of this Malayalam movie "Immanuel", which has distributed by Playhouse.
