Story: A youth is found dead in a lodge room and a police officer begins a probe to unravel the mystery and some unexpected characters come into play.

Movie Review: Red Wine shows a police officer probing the past of a dead youth, piecing together information gathered about him and in the process trying to find the reasons that led to his death. The process can be riveting . However Red Wine makes it too easy, too effortless and the thin element of suspense wanes no sooner than it even appears.

In a film where Mohanlal doesn't achieve anything extravagant and feels contented, putting on a subdued self with least charismatic mien, the saving grace is attained by Fahad Fasil. He plays Anoop, an engineering graduate turned political activist. He is perfectly at ease fitting into the groove of an upright, feisty youth committed to his party and society.

There is one scene where Anoop takes his friend, an ad-film maker to a forest in his village. In an otherwise routine scene, Fahad unfurls what he is made of. There is a raw earthiness he lends to himself and he extracts it out of nowhere and when he does it,he appears inimitable.

For most part of the film, which is conceived as a thriller, the narrative morphs into the form of a lengthy chronicle, slightly engaging and mostly drab? Palpable references to politics, moral policing and graft are stuffed together in a way that suggests a feverish intent to house all in one.

Asif Ali plays a shaky, troubled youth ridden with debts. There is a failed but earnest attempt to pitch two completely different lives against each other and undoing their knots is to be done by a smarter, elder person.

Mamman K Rajan's script is lacking in a sense of intent to provide the dynamism which is demanded by the story. There are some scenes, where characters give mere trifles on the pretext of vital clues. The fatality of Red Wine is its narrative that culls the suspense a way too early. Nothing is spared and what is shared is tedium of sequences that moulds Anoop into a noble and honest soul.

The movie doesn't score on the story, script or direction. Some scenes spark your interest back into the film only to drive it back down a couple of minutes later.
