Mohanlal’s much talked about film, Odiyan has released today at the box office. The trailer of the film managed to receive a good response and this only raised expectations among the audience. The movie is based on an interesting subject of shapeshifting which means that men can transform themselves into a different being or a creature. The Odiyan community existed in Kerala before the existence of electricity. In the film, Mohanlal transforms into various animal shapes.
Odiyan is touted to be the most expensive film of the year and makers had left no stone unturned to make sure that it gets the successful release. Well, the film has hit the screens today, and it looks like, Odiyan has failed to live up to the audience’s expectations. The film marks the directorial debut of VA Shrikumar Menon and moviegoers have been blaming him for ruining the film. While many are impressed with Mohanlal’s performance, many have been blaming the bad script. Check out twitter review right here:

A Pathetic attempt from the team that literally destroys all the “ODIYAN” expectations in to pieces 🤯🤯🤯
Overall a weird concept that doesn’t make any sense 🤮
Feel Sad For Mohanlal 😪
A Colossal Disappointment ☹️👎🏻

#Odiyan is the new #thugsofhindustan the director destroyed the film with his weak script and terrible direction with great actor like #Mohanlal thankgod MT vasudevan nair didn't allow @VA_Shrikumar to direct #Randamoozham and waste 1000 crs.

#Odiyan – highly emotionally bonded movie,definitely not a mass kind movie. Go with open mind,gud family drama wit all ingredients is there to attract families. BGM is terrific!@Mohanlal is asusual rocked with his performance@iManjuwarrier has meaty role & space
Rating – 2.75/5

Odiyan also stars Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj and will also be dubbed in Hindi. In such a lean and never before seen look, could Mohanlal manage to impress the audience? Let us know your review in the comments section below.
