Puthiya Niyamam (2016) - Review Roundup

For a film decides to take you round and round a narrative path, with the sole intent of ultimately unlocking a climactic twist that is somewhat exhilarating, a lot depends on the steady build up to the finale. A K Sajan's 'Puthiya Niyamam' is thus a long winding ride up and down a craggy path, that hopes to astonish you with the concluding spectacle that it has in store. (Read more)

Doing a thriller genre is always a difficult task to attempt for a filmmaker, so first hats off to AK Sajan for coming out of the safe zone and experimenting. Although it isn’t an out and out thriller package that you often see in clich├ęd Hollywood films. It is a genuine story which is treated in a realistic manner. The success element of this film is the storyline and the scripting work which is handled by the director AK Sajan himself. Pranthan is quite sure ‘Puthiya Niyamam’ won’t disappoint the masses. (Read more)

For the bigger share of its run time, Puthiya Niyamam looks like a very silly revenge story with a lot of loop holes in characterization. But the success of the script is in the twist that happens in the very last quarter of the movie where the director explains the mismatches and awkwardness the audience felt in an impressive way. It is a little uncomfortable to see the typical drama on screen after having seen two wonderfully realistic movies in the last weekend. But still with its sensible twist with a little too ambitious “technology” added to it, Puthiya Niyamam is a movie that won’t disappoint you for sure. (Read more)

Thrillers can surprise you in different ways. There are seat edge thrillers that hold you in thrall from beginning to end with a gripping narrative. Then there are slow burners like Puthiya Niyamam which looks sedate for most parts only to spring to life with supreme vigour towards the end. It is not as if A.K.Sajan is a novice as to be unaware of the pitfalls of leaving things a bit too late. In Puthiya Niyamam he shows remarkable panache in stitching together a thriller of topical relevance and he invests a lot in his conviction about the strength of the basic plot that he has at his disposal. (Read more)

On the whole Puthiya Niyamam is a onetime watchable decent thriller, which will not let you down if you go with less expectation. (Read more)
