Kayamkulam kochunni is an intense period drama.

The much awaited Nivin Pauly starrer kayamkulam kochunni, based on the life of the famous thug kochunni, met the audience expectations with the slick actions, ensemble cast, well paced screenplay, all of which contributed to the spellbound filmmaking nuance of Roshan Andrews. Nivin Pauly has undoubtedly delivered his career best performance as kochuni, while Priya Anand excels as his love interest. Adding to their chemistry is the soulful background score by gopi sundar. The cinematography and art direction of the movie also captures the time period in a very convincing manner. But the high point of the movie is owned by our very own lalettan, who in a screen time spanning less than half an hour just nailed each and every scene he has been offered as ithikara pakki. Once again Mohanlal proves that when it comes to screen charisma, there is no one to match him with such elegance.
