Story: Samudris and Chaveris are two rival kingdoms. Samudris are against gods and Chaveris believe in god. The latter aim to occupy Samudris kingdom. Representing Chaveris, Mammooty goes to fight with Samudris and goes missing.
After a few years, Unni Mukundan along with a 15 year old boy goes on a similar operation. Mammootty extends his support to the duo. What are the consequences Unni and kid faced and how did Mammooty face Samudris is what forms the crux of Mamangam.
Mammootty has once again come up with a brilliant performance throughout. His acting skills elevate several dull scenes in the film. Unni Mukundan gets a full length roleand he nailed his performance. Even rest other actors are decent in the roles they are offered.
M Jayachandran’s music, especially the background score is good. His BGMs elevated a few key scenes in the film. The cinematography is another notable point in Mamangam. It is apt to the mood of the film. On the technical side, only music and the cinematography deserves a sure mention. Rest other departments just did an average job.
Not to indulge in fights and kill people for castes or religions is what the makers intended to tell through Mamangam. As the point is already done and dusted in several old films, it fails to appear to the new generation audience.
Telugubulletin.com is going with a 1.5 rating for Mamangam only due to three elements- actors performances, music and cinematography. Nothing is either exciting or interesting in the film. The age old story and adding to it, a boring treatment makes Mamangam appear to nobody. It literally tests the patience of the audience watching the film in theatre.
Finally: Mamangam- Tough to digest
