Thrillers are awesome genre in all over the world. That heart pounding adrenaline rushing scenes are always enjoyed by our audience. Malayalam is so shy in making such thrillers. Basil Joseph with his debut movie Kunjiramayanam made wave among the audience. The movie was an excellent comedy thriller. This time Basil has enlarged his canvas and is back with a big budget action thriller. Godha is his latest work starring Tovino Thomas, Renji Panicker, Wamiqa etc.
The movie is compared with Dangal by so many of our critics and fans. But first of all we will say that it’s different different movies. The background theme , wrestling is the only resemblance with Dangal.
The movie tells the story of a Captain portrayed by Renji Panicker who is a veteran wrestler as well as a trainer . His son Dasan played by Tovino has got training from his father in wrestling from childhood. Dasan is not interested in wrestling instead his dream is to become a cricket player. But settling down with his dad’s dream, Dasan took flight to Punjab for his next level of wrestling training. There he met with Ankitha Sigh played Wamiqa. She is a talented wrestler. But unlike Dasan ‘s background, Wamiqa is facing so much resistance from his brother for becoming a wrestler. Dasan fall for her and their love story leads Ankitha to came to Kerala. From there the story changes to a thriller genre. The aftermath of that event completes the story.
Performance wise Wamiqa steals the show in each and every appearance. She definitely deserves a loud round of applause. Tovino has invested fully for his role. Renji Panicker showed his new avatar with well built body along with masculine performance. All other casts like Aju Varghese, Biju kuttan etc gave justice to their given character.
Technically the movie has a good standard. Vishnu Sarma gave some nice frames while Shaan Rahman’s tunes were awesome. Overall the movie is an excellent thriller as well as entertainer. Basil Joseph has crafted the movie in such a way that both youth and family audience can enjoy the movie.
