The only thing I remember about Jeethu Joseph’s Oozham (2016) is Prithviraj, his backpack and the fact that he is running through some narrow streets of CBR followed by goons in black teeshirts. It is hard to escape the running because every other minute the camera showed him running, dodging these men in black. The story happened somewhere in between all the English dialogue and the running!
Priyadarshan’s Oppam (2016) on the other hand is all about hitting Mohanlal black and blue! It is not that I have a problem that Lal gets hit! But the filmmakers try hard to establish this man is blind (to the police officer) and then his supermanly extra sensory skills. Compared to this, Yodha (1992) handles the blindness of Ashokan with grace.
