Malayalam Movie Parole Review
Mammootty in Parole.PR Handout

Ajith Poojappura, whose last was a comedy, Anghanethanne Nethave Anjettennam Pinnale, has returned to Mollywood with Mammootty's latest movie Parole. Time around Poojappura hasn't return as a director but as the writer of the drama. Sharrath Sandith, who has worked with Mammootty earlier in a TV commercial, is making his Mollywood debut with this movie which is bankrolled by Antony D'Cruz.

Iniya plays Mammootty's wife in the film, where her family migrates from Thrissur to Pala - Thodupuzha region. Miya, Siddique, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Prabhakar, Padmaraj Ratheesh, Krishna Kumar and many others are part of the cast.

Sharreth has scored the music for Parole, Loganathan Srinivasan has handled the cinematography department, while Suresh Urs has edited the film.

Parole is based on real-life incidents and characters. It has a touching storyline, which has all the necessary commercial elements as well. Mammootty plays the role of a communist leader (Alex). Just like an ordinary man, he wants his family members to be happy. But some unforeseen incidents lead to his arrest and he is sent to jail.

After being in the prison for eight years, he decides to go out of jail for 15 days on parole. The challenge for him is to solve a mystery and what follows next is the crux of the story. 

The movie's gripping trailer has garnered a lot of curiosity. Mammootty's earlier movies which have similar plots such as Munnariyippu, Bhoothakkannadi, and Mathilukal have won the viewers' appreciation. Can Parole bring a similar effect on the audience?

Mammootty's acting is being hailed by the viewers, who have already seen the movie. He gets viewers' sympathy after becoming the victim of others' sins. But the plain screenplay without surprises and forceful inclusions of commercial ingredients backfire the movie big time. In the end, it turns out to be a predictable movie sans any freshness in the flick, viewers' point out.

Iniya's performance is not up to the mark, but Miya has come out with a decent performance. However, the fans of hero-worshipping subjects might end up enjoying the flick, the audience declare.

Razhmi: #Parole
Same old pattern of narrating stories is a big letdown
No surprises...Iniya's performance is just average...Miya is better
Watch it if u like routine story

Forum Reelz: Average First Half Followed By A Below Average Second Half
Script Had Nothing New To Offer For An Actor Like @mammukka
Overall A Mediocre Attempt By Debutant #SharathSandith

Parole Review ~ Disappointing
#Parole Interval ~
An average 1st half with some good moments.
#mammooka 's good performance as #ComradeAlex
Fight scenes & slow making are major drawbacks. Second half is progressing.

Forum Keralam (FK): #Parole disappoints sans for the basic storyline which was good.@mammuka tries his best to save this with his performance but goes vain due to a below average writing and narration.
