Some make issue-based movies as a result of they really feel strongly in regards to the specific topic, whereas some others achieve this simply because it’s a helpful template that may assist conceal the mediocrity that pervades the movie. Nadirshah’s Eesho belongs to the latter class. Youngster abuse, which was additionally the problem which he selected for his debut movie, (the unbearable Amar Akbar Anthony) turns into the problem of alternative in his fifth movie too.

Whereas within the former, the problem arrives as an afterthought — in the direction of the fag finish of a movie full of misogyny — in Eesho, it’s offered fairly early on, solely to stay within the background for a lot of the remainder of the runtime. In each movies, the problem at hand turns into an excuse for heroic males to bask in vigilantism.

The dearth of conviction and the formulaic nature of the entire setup is obvious from the primary sequence in Eesho, which begins with a track within the voice of the kid, who would quickly turn into a sufferer. The track appears to have been included simply because an identical track within the debut movie turned out to be an enormous hit. All the time stick with the profitable system, as they are saying.

A lot of Eesho occurs over the course of an evening. Pillai (Jaffer Idukki), an ATM safety guard, is ready to provide his assertion in courtroom towards a robust man in a baby abuse case. He’s on evening responsibility on the ATM, and there’s a severe risk to his life. A stranger (Jayasurya), whose intentions aren’t clear (that’s what the scriptwriter supposed, however it’s clear as the sunshine of the day to us), joins him and chooses to spend the evening there.


Director: Nadirshah

Forged: Jayasurya, Jaffer Idukki, Namitha Pramod

After the primary crime that occurs within the prologue, by which justice is clearly not completed, one wouldn’t want even half a mind to guess the id of the stranger. In case somebody didn’t get it, the stranger himself is made to provide a 3rd individual account of this story to the safety guard.

The remainder of the film is a painful try to preserve the ‘suspense’ alive earlier than the massive reveal. Simply as an try to mislead the viewers, the stranger’s behaviour to the safety guard retains on shifting from pleasant to intimidating, however like all the pieces else within the film, it doesn’t work. A lot effort has been taken to make sure that the film doesn’t have interaction the viewers at any level.

Maybe, the toughest effort for the filmmaker will need to have been in extracting some shades of gray out of Jayasurya, who has been perpetually enjoying the do-gooder on display screen. The ladies, besides the barely-noticeable position of a junior advocate performed by Namitha Pramod, don’t determine anyplace within the director’s scheme of issues. Males commit the crime and males mete out justice in Eesho’s worldview.

With its mediocre making and half-baked understanding and concern of a severe difficulty, Eesho turns into a take a look at of the viewer’s endurance.

Eesho is at present streaming on SonyLIV
