The trailer and video song of the revenge thriller have already impressed the audience.

After The Detective, Memories and Drishyam, Jeethu Joseph has again proved that he is a master in making Thriller/family drama. Gripping Background Music made the movie in an interesting way and the climax is extraordinary. The only negative I felt is the film lags at some scenes for making thrilled, but utterly failed. As the director says, "who" and "why" are known and the "how" makes you watch the movie interestingly till the end. Overall, Oozham is one of the grippy thriller that ever made in malayalam. 4/5

#Oozham - Jeethu joseph..who is mastered in making thriller movies is back again with an absolute stunner!! Engaging, gripping and thrilling..but is completely different from Memories and Drishyam.. A revenge story which is all about HOW he'll do it..! Grab your tickets if you want to see something different from usual flicks.. Loved it.. Rating : 3.75/5

Jeethu Joseph's filmography keeps getting better after each movie.
I.M.P.R.E.S.S.E.D big time with this one especially !
A very different kind of non-linear narrative used throughout in this movie. First of its kind in Indian Cinema probably.
#Prithviraj is back with a Bang ! This is not anything quite like Memories. But this one is one hell of a daring attempt, executed brilliantly. Go for it !

After, Memories and Drishyam, #JeethuJoseph has again proved that he is a master in making Thriller-Family drama. #PrithvirajSukumaran as Surya Krishnamurthy, delivers a decent performance as usual. #BalachandraMenon as Krishnamurthy, brilliantly outplayed the character, a loving father of Prithvi, Neeraj n Rasna. The tamil actor #Pasupathy had done a special performance in this movie. #NeerajMadhav as Ajmal, played a full length character along with Prithviraj. He improved a lot and became one of the most young talented actor in Malayalam Fim. #DivyaPillai as Gayathri, the heroine in this movie is okay in her role. #RasnaPavithran made a decent debut. #KishorSatya, from small screen to big screen u improved a lot. #Jayaprakash, best man opposite to the hero.
Coming to the technical side, no words Jeethu Joseph you definitely needs an accolade for this entertaining revenge thriller. #ShamdatSainudeen, you zoomed in and out the movie through a consummate hike. Gripping BGM made the movie in an interesting way till the end. Kudos for that #AnilJohnson.
Rush into the nearby theatres for this thriller.

#OOZHAM :) usual story line but unusual kind of making and filled with many cliches !! Still its entertaining :)by comparing to other jeethu joseph movies, oozham is not up to that :/ Good perfo by Prithviraj. Watchable one (y) ;) Go for it with less expectations!!

#Oozham Jeethu Joseph - @PrithviOfficial team disappoints this time. Non linear presentation in the 1st half and predictable 2nd half

#Oozham : usual revenge drama without much thrills.Avg as a muvi but coming from Jeethu, quiet a disappointment.@PrithviOfficial was gud
