Innumuthal featuring Siju Wilson in the lead revolves around the life of Abhinandan, a troubled youth who is struggling to make ends meet. From the beginning, we see him run around aimlessly with almost no motivation to live. The only positivity in his life is his belief in Lord Krishna and his constant prayers, which we learn about within the first few minutes of the movie. However, the story escalates quickly as Lord Krishna decides to come down to earth and meet Abhinandan.
Taxi driver by profession, Abhinandan is a fraudster in the most innocent form. His lies help him survive and his cunningness is put to use to cheat people. Fed up by his constant nagging about money woes and lies, Lord Krishna decides to walk into his life and change it with a few actions. The movie, written and directed by Rejishh Midhila, catapults from this point. How this godly intervention changes the protagonist’s life makes the rest of the movie.
Lord Krishna in Innumuthal is not your regular god and thus, is a joy to watch. He is funny, adamant, and moreover, speaks with Kochi slang, making him relatable too. Just like most of our lives, the protagonist is faced with many problems one after the other. However, a certain degree of self-realisation helps him get through his day, making us wonder if we could change too. While the light-hearted fantasy nature of the film makes it the perfect fit for the festive occasion, a funny take on Lord Krishna makes it even better. Be it alone, with friends, or in the company of your family, Innumuthal is the best movie you can binge on this Vishu.
