1983 Movie Review By Athul

The subject of the film and the backdrop around which it is told is something new in Malayalam film.

Abrid Shine’s directorial debut 1983 with Nivin Pauly in the lead is a much anticipated movie of 2014. 1983 is the first movie in Malayalam to talk about cricket. The story is set in 1983, the year when India won the World Cup.

The film narrates the story of a group of youngsters in a remote village who are passionate about cricket. The plot revolves around the dreams and aspirations of Rameshan played by Nivin Pauly, a young man who is extremely passionate about cricket and how the game influences during the various stages of his life. Love for the cricket is always there throughout the movie.

The first half of the film is very much entertaining with situation comedies but the later half felt slow-paced with the slight drama towards the end. However, you will feel inspired. Performance wise, everyone has done justice to their roles. For Nivin Pauly this is one of the most challenging roles in his career. He has done a brilliant job as Rameshan and has taken a huge effort in portraying a character that pass through different phases of his life.

The subject of the film and the backdrop around which it is told is something new in Malayalam film. Director Abrid Shine deserves praise for his outstanding work. The scripting which is done by Abrid and Bejoy Chandran had all the ingredients to keep the audience entertained. Cinematography also deserves a special mention and cinematographer Pradeesh Varma opted for natural frames for this film. Gopi Sundar’s music and BGM was another highlight of the film. Regarding negatives, the movie is similar to usual sports movies and becomes predictable during the latter half.

1983 is a very good entertainer, especially if you are a Sachin Tendulkar fan and loves cricket. The movie won’t disappoint you.

Verdict: SuperHit
Rating: 9 / 10
