: Adam Joan Pothen (Prithviraj), a young planter from Kottayam falls in love with Amy (Mishti Chakraborthy), a choir singer in his hometown, and marries her. The young couple’s romance goes for a toss when they start their lives with Adam’s family in Scotland.
: Actor Prithviraj seems to be on a quest for thrillers this year, and Adam Joan is his second such film this year after Ezra. Its debutant director Jinu Abraham has tried to infuse suspense and thrilling elements to keep the audience on the edge of their seats with the haunting background scores.
The storyline of the film trails through the shadowy landscapes of Scotland where the romantic family man Adam transforms into a daring human being. Adam, a wealthy Kottayam achayan woos a middleclass girl Amy and marries her. The romantic life of Adam and Amy, who move to Scotland with his family including younger brother (Rahul Madhav) and his wife Swetha (Bhavana), shatters when Amy dies after childbirth.
Prithviraj’s first dialogue in the movie during a funeral pretty much sets the tone of the film – cold, sombre and dark. The scenes are mostly shot in churches, graveyards and castles giving the audience an eerie feel. After the interval, Adam starts his quest to find his missing daughter Ila with the aid of his buddy Syriac (Narain). The quest takes them on a dark path.
Prithviraj flaunts a stylish avatar with his macho looks along with the chases on bikes and posh cars. His camaraderie with Narain also boosts the storyline. The stunt scenes by Kabali fame stunt masters Anpu and Ariv and the romantic song are the only deviations from the gripping story. The dark tones and cold characters though are a major disconnect with the audience. If you are in the mood for a dark thriller and also want to watch Prithviraj in a stylish avatar, you could give the film a try.
I cannot understand the good reviews of this movie. Watching this movie is a complete mental torture. Even though Prithiraj did good as usual, the script is a complete nonsense. I would highly recommend not to go for this movie unless you want to punish yourself mentally. Extremely upsetting except first 30 minutes. Once the movie is finished, you feel a major relief. I am really surprised that somebody is there to spend so much money to produce a movie in a foreign country with an extreme idiotic script. This movie proves that somebody can write any non sense script and make up a Malayalam movie.
