Overview: Good police dramas and investigations are all the time gripping; Nayattu provides layers to this by making three civil cops the culprits in a case and likewise revealing their private tales and the toll it takes on their lives.
Simply as Praveen Michael (Kunchacko Boban) joins the police newly as a CPO, an area political goon, associated to a different CPO, Sunitha, performed by Nimisha Sajayan, is summoned to the station. The goon is a trouble-maker, as a Dalit social gathering employee, particularly when the elections are on. Michael and temperamental senior policeman Maniyan get right into a scuffle with the goon and throw him into the cell, when an irritated station CI, who threatened to maintain the goon within the lock up for six months, receives a name from the SP asking to let him out.
The difficulty spins uncontrolled nevertheless, when the three CPOs are caught in an accident and go on the run. The remainder of the thriller offers with how the police observe the trio, who desperately attempt to keep low until their innocence may very well be confirmed. We root for them whilst we realise the shedding place that they’re in.
Watching Nayattu, we turn into conscious that our political and police mechanisms are so twisted, that the drama is there for the making. The police are puppets within the fingers of politicians who unscrupulously cannot see something past their seats, and lower-level CPOs are ‘lower than goons’ as Maniyan tells new recruit Praveen.
Martin Prakkat delivers a reasonably taut story, crammed with drama, rigidity and empathy, backed by a wonderful technical staff – Shyju Kahlid’s cinematography and Mahesh Narayan’s modifying are completely complement the path.
Shahi Kabir’s screenplay is real looking and gratifying, with a punch delivered within the election scene on the finish, we do not know whether or not we should always snicker or cry over the scenario.
The actors are flawless. Joju George is in his standard type as an emotional cop. Kunchacko performs his position in a subdued method and suits completely into the position of a junior policeman. It feels bittersweet to see late actor Anil Nedumangad in his remaining position.
Nayattu is properly value a look ahead to the entire household, with its mixture of police story, private drama and message on our politics.
