: 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.
Many may not find the style to be appealing and the topic of Sayton worshipping is disturbing. However, the story is amazing and has a great plot. It really gives you a feel. Also it is is a new style that you have not seen in mollywood which makes it better. The beauty of Scotland adds more to this great direction and of course prithviraj’s acting is top notch. If you want to see a class movie and witness a new, scary but interesting topic this is a must watch. Also there are some huge family moments too. Overall it’s just a solid, well made film.
