Malayalam luminary Mammootty plays a hardcore comrade in his new film Parole, that is a directorial entrance of ad filmmaker Sharrath Sandith. Apparently desirous by a loyal story, a film follows Comrade Alex’s (Mammootty) life. Sharrath has employed a elementary account structure for Parole. He starts a story in a high-security jail, where Alex is a many desired inmate. His co-inmates venerate him, and he’s a swain for a jail officials.

At one point, when Alex’s release focus gets suspended, a murky mood envelopes a whole jail compound. And one tip patrolman says something like it was a many emotionally formidable conditions he had to face in his whole service. The impression that works during a prison, that is a culminating indicate for all a crimes and tragedies of life, wants us to trust when he says a crook removing his release dangling is a biggest tragedy of all. That’s a problem with Sharrath’s film, he tries to ladle feed a assembly on how to feel about a incidents and characters that we see on a screen. And he aspires to grasp it with his lousy writing.

Alex starts to tell his life’s story on being asked by a extraordinary invalid lodged subsequent to his cell. A teenage Alex is introduced to a beliefs of communism by his father played by Alencier Ley Lopez. He grows adult on teachings of P Krishna Pillai, a insubordinate who was a owner of a Communist transformation in Kerala. It is Alex’s father who starts a Communist transformation in a tiny city in Kottayam, where a abounding motionless a value of products constructed by a farmers. Alex continues to spearhead a transformation even after his father’s death. Alex has a stepsister Kathreena (Miya), who is dissed by other members of a family for apparent reasons. However, Alex loves her some-more than his possess life.

Alex allows Varghese, a member of a Indian Army (Suraj Venjaramoodu), to marry Kathreena. Varghese turns out to be a fraud later. He gets court-martialed for peddling drugs. And when he earnings to Alex and Kathreena’s life, he solemnly starts to destroy them.

Alex blinded by a adore for his sister loses his skill and family and ends adult in jail too. It’s interlude and we are behind to a prison. From there on a film follows Alex’s life into a future, where another array of hapless incidents wait him.

The exegesis and Mammootty’s opening is improved in a second half. Mammootty’s opening as Alex, a degraded middle-age chairman who is quiescent to his fate, comes as a saving grace. He has staged a pointed opening in scenes where he’s yearning to accommodate his son or a scenes where he swallows a insults hurled during him, gets a courtesy for a while. Alex is absolute when it comes to assisting people in distress, though he becomes unable and infirm when it’s time to yield for his family.

Mammootty’s efforts to save a film shortly vanishes into a skinny atmosphere due to Sharrath’s cluelessness about what to do with a stellar star cast, including Iniya, who has essayed a purpose of Alex’s mother Annie.

While we can mark idle essay in each scene, a film’s cinematography by Loganathan Srinivasan is noteworthy. Each support looks like a painting, generally a scenes set in a backdrop of scenic plateau of Kerala. Loganathan’s work is usually among a few good things in a film, detached from Mammootty.

Sharrath has been unchanging in progressing a unhappy mood via a film. But, it leaves us wondering what was a need of Prabhakar’s bad restrained act? How did Kathreena die? Or because do all prisoners in this film demeanour so happy like they are on a vacation?

Sharrath creates life during a jail demeanour as if it is not bad after all.
