Friday, directed by Lijin Jose is a well-woven neatly scripted movie with minimal loopholes. The film appeals mainly because the characters are 'human' and easy to identify with. They are normal people like you and me who make blunders, learn from them and move on...
Najeem Koya's script beams with life and highlights issues and thoughts never before captured on camera. Stunning visuals by Jomon Thomas adds to the already appealing script. It takes us on a roller-coaster ride of emotions and feelings that rule everybody's hearts. Music by Roby Abraham foes well with the plot of the film.
The story of Friday revolves around many people aged young and old from diverse background, who come together due to a single incident that happens on a Friday in a small town in Alappuzha. One childless couple is planning to adopt a child, while a young autorickshaw-driver (Fahad Fazil) is angry that he is poor. There is also a young couple who are head over heels in love, a pregnant beggar and an aged man who shops for his granddaughter's wedding. What happens next? How do all these different people unite? Watch Friday to know!
Fahad Fazil seems to have carved himself a niche in doing experimental film in Malayalam cinema. He is flawless and handles his role with absolute ease and delicateness. Nedumudi Venu as usual is outstanding and extremely convincing in his role. It is difficult to single out any one actor as the entire star cast has given a brilliant performance.
Friday has a powerful script and director Lijin Jose has done a perfect job in weaving the various characters into one fine plot. A must watch if you like experimental films.
