Rating: 2/5

Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu is an action adventure movie starring Pranav Mohanlal. Yet the appearance of the talented actor seems to be everything this film emphasises on. About other aspects, it is reviewed to remarkably lacking strong plot and cognitive development.

Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu opens in Goa, where a gangster Baba (Manoj K Jayan) is struggling to return to honest living and make ends meet. Another prominent character in the movie that you should also pay attention to is Appu (Pranav Mohanlal), his son, who has to continually keep an eye on this father, to prevent crime commitment. Abusi is Baba's Rs 20 lakh debt owner, an extravagant gangster who holds Baba captive because he wants to ask for his money return.

The father is in an emergent situation, but if you are seeking for the son's strong rescue attack, you will be extremely disappointed. Instead of some action scenes, Appu just simply kisses Abusi's ring and requests some time to repay his debt. And Abusi, in the blink of an eye, agrees with that. Seriously, where on earth can a cruel gangster become so lovely and generous?

Now, right after you accept the unreasonableness and wait for Appu's attempt to earn Rs 20 lakh, Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu once again leaves you in the lurch. The rest of the movie narrates Appu's love affair with Zaya (Zaya David) and a dramatic story behind her running away from him. The plot is half-baked, disconnected and meaningless.

Fortunately, there appears an intriguing twist at the near end. You are preparing yourself for sitting on the edge of the seat? Sorry but the answer is still no. Thanks to Arun Gopy's lazy directing style, Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu just wanders aimlessly on the surface, instead of digging deep into a supposed-to-be gut-wrenching story.


Some even raise this question after watching Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu, is it all about Pranav Mohanlal? The actor's performance seems to dominate most of the film. And our director may think it's enough, then not give a piece of effort in building strong plot and meaningfulness.
