Synopsis
The film establishes that getting ‘inspired’ from other language films is not a Mollywood-specific phenomenon and it's no sin. The director, however, could have used a better plot and characters.

Synopsis: Under pressure from his girlfriend to debut as a filmmaker, Kishore accepts a brilliant script from a stranger and directs a movie. While its release brings him recognition and good luck, he is also accused of plagiarism.

Review : Oru Korean Padam has the spine of a new-fangled theme as it is a light-hearted take on plagiarism in Mollywood. Kishore is an assistant director in Mollywood and he falls in love with the smart and affluent Eva. Her parents oppose the relationship as Kishore has not established himself.

There is pressure on him to earn a name and become a successful director. While he struggles to write, a stranger approaches him with an excellent screenplay with one condition - make the film and give money in return. Kishore's film Turning Point becomes a success, but an accusation of plagiarism lands him in trouble. How those around Kishore help him to prove his innocence forms the crux of the story.
Maqbool Salmaan as Kishore - a confused youngster who wants to be a filmmaker - suits the character. But, it becomes boring when he repeats his expressions frame by frame. Mithra Kurien's role is restricted to that of a smart girl who falls for a young assistant director.

Oru Korean Padam has picked a topic that has been widely discussed by critics for quite a while. The film establishes that getting 'inspired' from other language films is not a Mollywood-specific phenomenon and it's no sin. The director, however, could have used a better plot and characters. A handful of situations are also outright silly though they are created to tickle your funny bone.

For instance, there is scene involving snake catcher Vava Suresh created to distract the lady love's family to snatch her away. Cliched expressions and post production lapses downgrade the product. It is a onetime watch for its theme, but the overall treatment and entertainment quotient is disappointing.
