Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Mammootty is megastar and this performance as Kerala CM again justifies its mega stardom. What a brilliant performance he gave and I am totally mesmerised by his acting chops. He is into the skin of the character and you definitely wish to see him more and that’s what the magic he left in this film. The entry scene of the megastar comes almost around 30 minutes after the movie and next 2 hours is roller coaster rise. You need to focus on this film to understand the depth of this story. I must praise to the director for directing such a good film. The story writer has given a fresh story and I am impressed. The common man theme of this film will make you connect to this movie easily. The character of a boy Sanal also did his best. Talking about the cinematography, the shots were good and do creat impact. My favourite scene of this film, when CM resigns and starts leaving from Kerala Assembly Hall, the long shot from bottom to the face of Mammootty until he reaches to the staircase, was very good. It was 30 to 40 second shot but it did created good cinematic impact. The last shot of Mammootty waving his hands to the public was also captured beautifully. I didn’t got bored and that means I liked the film. The screenplay is good enough to hold you for over 2 hours. The overall message of this film was good, as public has the right to choose the leader and its public who has to rule, not the politician.
One movie has been directed by Santhosh Viswanath. It has been produced by Sreelakshmi R. The story has been written by Bobby & Sanjay. The cinematography has been done by Vaidy Somasundaram and the musical work handled by Gopi Sundar. This film has been edited by Nishad Yusuf. The only thing I find a bit worry is, this film could have been cut short for another 10 to 15 minutes than it would have been much better.
One movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet by the makers but it would reportedly be around 8 to 10 crores maximum by looking at the film.
Altogether, One is one of the best works by Mammootty. After a long time, I am impressed by a political drama film.
Last word: Watch it for its good story and Mammootty’s stellar performance.
