Pada Movie Review

Every now and then, you’ll encounter a film that will make you feel like you’ve spent two hours well spent. Pada is one of them. After watching the 125-minute film, you not only feel grateful for having had a nice cinematic experience, but you also feel you have learned something and want to do something.

Interestingly, the film is based on an incident that occurred in 1996 at the Palakkad Collectorate, but tragically, almost 25 years later, the store feels very current, except that it may be impossible to gather a few people who will work selflessly for the needs of others.

The Ayyankali Pada, comprised of Kunchacko Boban, Vinayakan, Joju George, and Dileesh Pothen, not in that order of significance, keeps the collector captive for almost 10 hours. They want the leftist administration to remove a new bill that would deprive adivasis of their land rights. So they barricade themselves in the collector’s office with some ammunition and begin bargaining.

The drama of the mediation between the four and the government, represented by the chief secretary, played by Prakash Raj, is shown in the film. The administration’s priority is to save face in front of the upcoming elections as well as to get the officer out of the situation unscathed. As the “pada” monitor the news to see how their protest is being interpreted, they are irritated to discover that an official statement implies that the police have no idea who they are or what their demands are; the administration expertly plays it to appear as victims of terrorists. On the other hand, these four are enthusiastic and intelligent. They are well-versed in a variety of topics, both at the grassroots and outside. They know how to respond when the collector references the Geneva Convention on Hostage Rights, and when he says he is service-minded and has assisted in a tribal land dispute, they remind him that he was unable to complete the programme effectively.

Is it possible to reach an amicable solution? The government offers a brief reprieve, and the video concludes with footage of the actual event, telling us how things came out for the four, and not just how the tragic situation of tribal land rights continues, but also how people within the administration are not spared if they do not toe the line.

The four main performers are superb, flawlessly complimenting one another and making us feel empathetic and awakened without ever being overly dramatic. Arjun Radhakrishnan, who plays collector Ajay Sripad Dange, deserves special attention for his ability to hold his own when literally imprisoned in a room with our best actors. He lends respect and power to his performance, making a difficult character likeable. Side actors such as Indrans and others also deliver excellent performances.

The film’s beginning is a little hazy, and the repeated dramatic BGM by composer Vishnu Vijay over the words doesn’t help; but the adivasi songs have a lovely, rustic pace. The photography by Sameer Thahir and editing by Shan Mohammed maintain the emotional pace of the picture, and despite the fact that much of it is shot in a room, it is well-captured and seems claustrophobic only when the narrative necessitates it.

Essentially, writer-director Kamal KM took a significant incident in the state’s political history and turned it into a good film with a compelling, thought-provoking screenplay, perfectly captured scenes that convey not only the very different times but also the workings of our government offices, and excellent acting. This is a must-see film for everyone.
