Commercial cinemas are meant primarily to entertain the audience telling a story in its own terms. And if you decide to entertain with technical gimmicks than a proper story to speak, then it is what Abraham and Lincoln is.
The film is directed by director duo Pramod and Pappan, after their Vajram and Taskaraveeran.
The film has two heroes -- Abraham (Kalabhavan Mani), a former military man, and Lincoln (Rahman), a police officer.
The film opens with the killing of Johnson Dominic, who works as a carrier for Sonar Kella group of jewelers owned by Shankar Nath. The murder was as per the plans executed by Rahim Rawthae who is Shankar Nath's rival in the business, who wants to see the end of Shankar Nath, his associates and Sonar Kella. Johnson's elder brother Abraham takes leave of the army and comes to the city with the sole aim of finding out the mystery behind his brother's death and to take revenge. He very well realizes that opening a way into gold mafia was to work for them and he finds ways to enter the group of Shankar Nath.
Lincoln George, a Circle Inspector, who is there to dig up the actions against a porno film maker, happens to clash with Abraham and both have it out in the street. And amidst the duel, someone else shoots Lincoln and Abraham takes the wounded Lincoln to hospital and saves his life which makes them friends.
Abraham, who reveals to Lincoln the details of his mission, finds that Lincoln too is to find someone who cheated his sister Nancy while studying in Bangalore. Nancy who later had a mental wreck is in a better shape now and it is for her that Lincoln is living. With the arrival of new collector Philip Mathew, Lincoln is recruited to fight against gold mafia. As both are in similar routes, reading between the lines too give you the course of events that follow which shape up into the rest of the movie.
The film which is technically brilliant than their earlier movies is heavily inspired from recent bollywood flicks like Dhoom. The film gives you an effective hotchpotch of trendy songs, dances, motor races, highway robberies, corrupt police acts and bureaucrats. The highlight of the movie is definitely the breathtaking action scenes like the cross-country bike and car chase in the beginning of the film. .
Kalabhavan Mani as Abraham making it a worth watching affair while Rahman lends able support as Lincoln.
Both the heroes act out their parts well. Salim Kumar as constable Marcose and Anoop Menon, who appears as collector Philip Mathew is good.
The film has a few brilliantly worked out songs which comes from no where in the story, the best being the first song-Uduraajamukhi... other songs Kezhumekannaalle...and Indrasabha... are also good.
With all those technical splendor by the editor, the art-director, the stunts people and the cinematographer, the film definitely keep you in the seats till the end.
