Flash Review - Flash disappoints

It's all about delusion, manic depression, phobias and falsification of memories. Moreover the hero is a multifaceted genius, a psychiatrist doctor turned software specialist, who will leave all his preoccupations whenever he gets a necessary pathetic mental state to study. And the latest in his patient list is his favorite friend and staff's young fiancée. The Psychiatrist is ready to go to any extent to heal her, he even devices out-of-the-world possibilities to get her back intact............Any clues? No , we are not on to discuss anything about the decade old classic 'Manichithrathaazhu'...But  we are just reminding the flashes of storyline that you will face onscreen, when you get to enjoy the new offering for Christmas,' Flash'. Sadly to say, this new film which marks the return of celebrated director Sibi alayil after a couple of years, is a sad letdown affair, penned around the classic Fazil film, which  resembles the original not even in parts but also in many  sequences.

The film opens with the introduction of bold  and beautiful, Dhwany Sekharan, a hyperactive  engineering student   and daughter of   Chennai based construction business man Shekharan Nair, who is left in their ancient kalarithody  tharavadu with her grandfather, after the early death of her mother. Shekharan, on the other hand had a lot of resistance  in his family itself in the form of his younger brother Bhadran  and his cousin Arun, who don't want him to head any of the initiatives of the wealthy Karlarythody group of companies. Dhwany, who share a special relation with her grandfather, gets all support on her endeavors from him, whether it is the issue of teasing her uncle Viswanathan Nair or in the issue of the secret relation between the home driver and her cousin Veena, which was brought to public by her.   It was at this point, Dhwany started showing some kind of anomalies in her behavior. And immediately her Uncle's son Priyan, with whom Dhwany's marriage has been talked off, takes note of this and entrusts his guide and employer Midhun Madhavan to treat her.

The scriptwriter showers all kind of credentials to Midhun Madhavan, (whose name is rarely heard in the film, as the dialogue writer forget to call him by name ). Besides being  an astute  member of I M A, he was even the camp director of Scotland yard's session on criminal psychiatry in India. He was also the ambassador of international charity league apart from being the C E O of the multicrore software firm Infinity Visual magic, where Priyan works. Priyan tries to bring Dhwany to the firm as an employee, but the idea backfires as she finds the pretense drama before her interview, too silly. After a number of clashes, Midhun somehow manages to get into the tharavaadu as a family friend and establishes good relation with her grandfather, who runs a Kalary even at the age of seventy. Dhwany, who never gets a hint about her illness, instantly falls for Midhun. Around this time some kind of man missing is reported from the tharavadu .And shortly afterwards Dhwany's father is also found murdered. Local C I Jacob Chandy, starts investigating on every related cases and every clues points to Dhwany, as being the part of each murders. Now Midhun is left in a critical situation in which he has to save his patient from the arms of the police and   further mental breakdowns. How he manages to do so forms the rest of the story told is a rather unappealing way.

The plot, even though half baked, is little appealing but it is the screenplay and the dialogues that proved to be the biggest negatives of the film. The director, Sibi Malayil and the scriptwriter s Bhasurachandran has miserably failed to make the film an engrossing affair, as the first half with cliched sequences is a little dragging with none of the sequences invit
