Live Audience Reviews
#Loham - 2.5/5. Template @Mohanlal larger than life hero flick,offers nothing new in story & presentation. Expected a lot more from #Ranjith
1st half is ok, with a great interval block, 2nd half long drawn out & predictable end with no twists or turns.
@Mohanlal as usual terrific & great screen presence. #Siddique fantastic as comic villain. Wish Ranjith had a story 2 say.
#loham superb flim it would ve been more superb if shajikalsah directed the movie intravel and climax superb cat scene tharumaru laletan

#LOHAM is half wave thriller. @Mohanlal entertained well with mass look and stylish screen presence
Gradual build of suspense, no Ranjith moments, one good song, and couple of nice, swaying cheeks in jeans. Interval. #Loham
#loham a good thriller from the magical combo. Just over 2 hours n fast. Second half bit confusing and overcrowded. Climax predictable
#loham will be a hit/ super hit. A better second half would have make it a mega blockbuster
Watched loham, good watchable film but the script should be better...overall a typical lal-ranjith combination

"Loham" engaging and thrilling to an extent, but peters out in second half to be an average thriller, with a sudden end and vague narration.
#Loham Superb movie Class 1st half & Mass 2nd Half
Gud entrtanr ; Predictable climx is d only -ve
Sure Mega hit in #Onam season
#Loham disappointed :( the kind of intrigue the movie demands was missing big time...As ranjith said don't expect anything..it's just Loham
'Loham' falls somewhere between a class and a mass film. Either way at the end of the day, both the 'fans' doesnt have much to nag about but from a film lover's point, I strongly feel the pre-hype of the film is the villain. Having said that, the film is rich in content, performance and technically. Honestly, some scenes looked odd and some dialogues were dramatic. But when you see Mohanlal, you conveniently chuck those. Siddique is surely a class apart, a legend! The car chasing and stunts looked sharp with the ever best background scorer Rajamani doing a stellar work. For people who want to see Loham, kindly dont expect a mass film as the director warned. Just keep it low and who knows, you might like it more than a fan!
#Loham 2.5/5 watchable first half & predicable second half. Climax not up to the mark
Lalettan superb,a half baked script.Ranjith trying another 7 th day but failed miserabley
Loham [3/5] A Ranjith Masterpiece, which carrying @Mohanlal 's Mass Performance. Good entertainer. Worth to watch
Absolutely, the Story and Screenplay is King. When Mohanlal coming together with these, there is lot of for Fans to celebrate
Siqqiue was steal the show with lot of Comedy scenes. First half and Climax were at a BB 's best. Excellent
Second half was a peace one, directly turns to the story. A Better ending needed. Andrea was Nice, especially all are at best
#director #renjith disappointed in #Loham ..an average thriller..@Mohanlal wasn't bad ..
#Loham : Watchable sans for the tried and tested climax twist which brings down the overall excitement. @Mohanlal at his best 3/5.
#Loham - Don't expect a cliched action thriller. Light-hearted, but one of its kind. Mystery will make you not to wink till the end.
#Loham is a below average Ranjith film; Disappointed with Loham
Dear Laletta nd Ranjith, we have the discs of 7thDay. Don't do dis type of worst movies. We didn't expected from you
#Loham: Brilliantly executed by keeping the curiosity of audience up without going down. Not the type of Ranjith cinema anyone would expect.
If thrillers were only meant to be full fledged action oriented then this film is a standout from the crowd!
The interval block pumps out adrenaline bringing the 'Kalippan Lalettan' out of the shell. From then on till the eve of climax..
Great to see such a classic big time entertainer from Mohanlal-Ranjith combo. The box office winner for sure.
I would rate #Loham as the best from Mohanlal in the near time. The box office hunter of the season is here. My rating 3.75!

Saw #Loham. Interesting story but very badly presented. Ranjith doesn't know the right mix for both commercial and serious moviegoers.
#Loham 1st half Awesome. Lalettan full on Action.. Pakka dialogue #Sidique cmdy 2nd half much predictable Overall it's good 3.5/5
#Loham( 2.5/5) :- #LalettanAsUsual Fab Job:) . Technical Side Was Good, Especially Dop And BGM !
#Loham is not much malleabillity and ductility as the real metal has,twists & turns falls to be vry predictable in the 2nd half
Apart from siddiques hillarious one liners it doesnt offrs anytng intrestng.Has sme unavoidble simmilarties with mankatha and 7th day
Renjiths style of slow pacd charectors detailng storytelling & his intentions to mix mass elements in his style didnt work well here
1st half was too good and the 2nd half was average and predictable. One time watchable. 2.5/5 #Loham

പതിവ് രഞ്ജിത്ത് ക്രാഫ്റ്റ് കിട്ടിയിലെങ്കിലും മോശമല്ലാത്ത ഒരു സിനിമ നല്കി രഞ്ജിത്തും സംഘവും

എനിലെ സിനിമ ആസ്വാദകനെ ദ്രിശ്യത്തിനു ശേഷം ത്രിപ്തിപെടുത്തിയ ലാലേട്ടൻ സിനിമ
Second half failed to deliver the punch promised at the interval twist.. Second half had an overwhelming sense of Deja Vu. #Loham
Still there's lots of classic 'Lalettan moments' in the film and Ranjith's magic in 1st half.. 2nd half was more like a Joshiy film:P #Loham
Loham is a thriller with top-notch story and screenplay. The movie gets the real actor in Mohanlal.
Engaging story and performances by the lead cast. +ve Performances by lead cast Story and Screenplay Background score
After Drushyam, this is the movie to look forward to for Mohanlal's spectacular performance.
