One Review - Story
A hard-hitting social media post from a naive youngster sparks a political coup and the chief minister, Chandram(Mammootty) himself has to step into action. What is the nature of the social media post shared by the youngster? How does the chief minister handle the tricky situation?
One Review - Analysis
Mammootty's One is more of a commercial political thriller with the part engaging and part hollow screenplay. The proceedings hit top gear with the protagonist’s introduction scene but it progresses along with predictable notes for most parts in the opening half. The political coup, which forms the core plot is formulaic. Despite having a good premise, the film sticks to a cliched narrative.
One Review - Verdict
Mammootty’s One is a mixed bag. The film has its own share of bright moments as well as flaws. Mammootty’s stand-out performance and protagonist elevation blocks work out well. But the predictable narrative and cliched ending don’t help the cause. The film can be termed a passable one-time watch.
