About Jamalinte Punchiri

Performances

Indrans, as the titular character Jamal, delivers a layered and nuanced performance in this film. He gets to explore a multitude of emotions as Jamal fumbles yet fights his way though life. Jasnya Jayadeesh, who plays his daughter, has a short yet notable presence in the film, and the moments her character has with her father, are heartwarming. The film features a stellar cast that has delivered convincing performances including Siddique, Prayaga Martin, Ashokan, Dinesh Panicker, Mithun Ramesh, Joy Mathew, Sona Nair, and Mallika Sukumaran. Other performances to mention are Sunil Bhaskar and Yadu Subramanian.

Technical

Director Vicky Thambi and writer VS Subhash have put together a heartwrenching story that explores many hidden undercurrents in our society. The story progresses beautifully, starting with the life of Jamal who sports a smile simply from the goodness of his heart and his contentment with life, and how that very smile begins to mean something entirely different over the course of the film.
Cinematography by Udhayan Ambady and Ajay G Ambalathara on Art Direction have put together Jamal's world in such a way that the characters, their settings and their problems become a lot more relatable and true to life. Editing by Vipin Mannur takes the narrative forward well, maintaining an apt runtime. Music by Varkey supports the story-telling without sounding too intrusive. The transitions from the feel good moments to when the dramatic moments build up are well done.

Verdict

Jamalinte Punchiri is an earnest attempt at telling a story from the roots, and the film does manage to draw you in and feel invested in Jamal and the outcome of his journey. This is in most part because of the performer that is Indrans. This film is worth a watch just to see this actor play the titular character.
