P Balachandran directorial debut Ivan Megharoopan comes with lot off surprises. He is dare to tell the story of the Poet, who gifted with lot of ability, but unable to use it wisely because of his carelessness. It is a bold attempt from P Balachandran and he did not waste time in justifying his characters for their doings. Rather he concentrated how their real life would be, and how a man can live with out caring others, relationships and their feelings.
Film talk about P K Madhavan Nair (Prakash Bare) who is gifted with rare poetic sills, however his fall for women nature and careless life with nothing to give for human relationship is the main plot of Ivan Megharoopan. Film talk about how he break the hearts of his loved ones.
The film truly deserves all awards in the recently held Kerala State film awards, second best film, best music director Shareth, best editor Vinod Sukumar and best dubbing artistfor Praveena.
Coming to the performance it is Prakash Bare who steals the show, the poet’s life was safe in his hands and he played that role with much dedication. Also all the women in the poet’s life done their part very convincingly, be it Padmapriya, Surabhi, Swetha Menon, Remya Nambeesan, Anu, Sunitha or Jayapriya. Among them Padmapriya as Ammini steals the show with a superb performance. Jagathy Sreekumar was another character which deserves a special mention. Chembil Ashokan too supported the lead.
The real credit goes to the Balcahandran’s script and Rajeev Ravi comes up with best in class visuals for Ivan Megaroopan. Music by Shareth suits the mood of the film and most of them are widely appreciated.
Film will remain as one of the well narrated movie in the recent life about a poet who fly for women till his death without thinking about his poems or the life of others.
