Amal Neerad, who is known for his stylish making as a cinematographer turned director, comes up with CIA starring dulquer as lead.
A Journey of a man in search of his lady love to America and what he realises and what it gives back after meeting his love is CIA all about.
A travel love story where first half is about love, communist dialogues, mass elements, humour and post interval sets as an adventurous travel story in search of love. Movie also talks about the crossover of the mexican border unofficially to enter US and the risk in it for life.
Dulquer is charming, steals the show all the way with his style especially at the intro scene and the one at the climax. Lead pair Karthika has little scope in this movie and she disappears completely post interval. Siddique, plays as dulquer father did a role what is expected and the scene at the police station to take his son out is massive enough.
Communism is just for the sake of current trend in Malayalam movies and for to pour the ideologies then and there whereas the main theme of the movie is completely on romance side and travel.
Dulquer and BGM are the main leads in this movie. Intro scene, action choreo, bit songs, travel diaries, slowmo cameras, songs altogether makes it a musical treat. Renadive as cinematographer has done a good job in showcasing the visuals needed for a adventurous travel movie.
Typically the same travel movie we have seen so far with its own highlights of climax, communism ideas, technical brilliance makes it a watchable decent movie of its generation!
