After the huge success of “ Traffic “ Rajesh Pillai’s Mili was a much awaited movie. But though the film has a message to deliver, it fails to reach up to the expectations of the audience.
The title role played by Amala Paul is an introvert. Though the performance of Amala can be appreciated, there is no surprise element in the film. The charmer that is usually visible in Nivin pauly’s characters is totally missing and he is doing only a minimal role. The character portrayal of Amala is done well, when she struggles hard to meet other people’s expectations. The character slowely emerges from its cocoon of low self-confidence. The inferiority of the character is touching.
Rajesh Pillai’s captures the imagination of the audience and he has the good support of the script by Mahesh Narayanan . But the main factor is that the audience can anticipate the outcome earlier itself. The buildup of the first half of the movie doesn’t reach upto the mark to boost up the second half. Each characters including Saikumar have done their roles well.
All in all, Mili tries to be a film which motivates the people. But fails to do so. Technically Mili is good. Anish lal’s neat eye pleasing frames suit the mood of the story very well. On the whole , there is nothing neither terrible about the movie nor anything impressive about it.
