Olipporu Review - 'Olipporu' is Strictly for Festival Audience

IndiaGlitz  [Monday, August 26, 2013]



Coming from director A V Sasidharan, 'Olipporu' is one movie that will test the sensibilities of an ordinary movie goer. A movie that is constructed in a disoriented narrative, taking liberal clues from the stage, 'Olipporu' deals with the travels of a blogger who pass through some very unfamiliar life situations.
Fahad Fazil is Ajayan, a blogger who writes under the pseudoname of 'Olipporali'. A popular name in the circuit for his finesse in   thinking and writing, he with an association of bloggers named gear, brake and clutch from various areas are planning to host a show at Bangalore. But on the very day the organiser of the show, Ajayan was expected to arrive, he mets with an accident which makes him lay in between life and death. The movie follows the reminiscences of the young man about his childhood rearing and values, as his body lay awaiting an imminent death.

The movie fails to unleash in proper grammar, with the scripts by poet P N Gopikrishnan laden with ridiculously simple lyrics and heavy literature leaving the viewer suffocated with abstract ideas. This deliberate hollowness of a tedious screenplay takes the little beauty of is unconventional story telling methods. Moreover, the backgrounding of the central man and their intentions for the show are never properly dealt with. The little areas which invite interest includes the relationship between the grandfather and Ajayan,  and the struggles of the young man to correct his pronunciation of three similar sounding letters.
Fahad Fazil is asked to walk more distances across the lanes of Bangalore and the corridors of hospital with a mystified stare and to talk directly to the viewers. Apart from that mystery filled portrait of the central man, there is nothing more to satisfy an actor of his league. The other characters appear plastic and without life which gives a staged feeling all through. Apart from a few fine long range shots by Manoj Mundayattu , there is nothing much that can engage you in this sober drama which tries to tell a lot behind its myriad mysterical narratives.

All in all this 'Olipporu' definitely ends up as a guerrilla warfare with the audience who may not get a trace of the hidden intentions behinds its making, even after being with it for a pretty long 109 minutes.
