Kuruthi Review: A highly-anticipated Malayalam movie for this year, Prithviraj Sukumaran starrer thriller Kuruthi is now out, ahead of the independence day celebrations.

The word ‘Kuruthi’ means the holy sacrifice. The trailer of the film sketched dark scenes of murder and revenge with a man named Ibrahim trying to justify his actions by calling them the will of the almighty. The film dares to point to the other side of independence.

Actor Prithviraj Sukumaran had called Kuruthi “one of the most intense and fast-paced films”. The film stars actors such as Roshan Mathew, Murali Gopi, and Shine Tom Chacko. Kuruthi has been produced by Prithviraj Sukumaran under his banner Prithviraj Productions.

Roshan Mathew’s acting as Ibrahim has been much appreciated by the audiences. The film, however, remains largely male-dominated. Apart from Sumathi, as Srindaa, women characters are missing from the foreground. Prithviraj Sukumaran essays the role of the villain Laiq. Sukumaran made his debut as an actor in 2002 with the romantic drama Nandanam. While Mathew made his screen debut with the web series Tanline.

Yesterday, actor Privithiraj had tweeted:

Kuruthi was scheduled for a theatrical release in May, but was delayed due to the pandemic led restrictions. This is director Manu Warrier’s foray into Malayalam cinema.

This is how some of the critics have responded to the film.

Baradwaj Rangan, National Award-winning film critic and editor, film companion (South) tweeted:

Haricharan Pudipeddi an entertainment journalist tweeted, “Loved #Kuruthi, a taut invasion thriller that also doubles up as an effective film that takes communal violence head on, and largely makes for a gripping watch.”

Journalist Anna MM Vetticad wrote in her review, it is a  film that undermines its own lofty messaging on Hindu-Muslim ties.

Here is how audiences have responded to the film:

The film has released on Amazon Prime Video. You can watch the trailer here:
