Renjith'Black': The transformation of a hitman

Malayalam film director Renjith deserves credit for creating a visually vibrant underworld of Kochi in his movie 'Black' that tells the tale of a hitman whose world is transformed by unforeseen twists of fate.

The film stars Malayalam superstar Mammootty , Lal , Shreya Reddy, Sona Nair and Rahman.




Mammootty plays a hitman Karikkamuri Shanmugham, a contract killer who goes about his job with ruthless efficiency. David Carlos Padaveedan (Lal), a lawyer who masterminds the operations of the underworld, is his friend, philosopher and guide. On Shanmugham's trail is the police inspector Ashok (Rahman).

Shanmugham's world changes when he is put into an orphanage where he is entrusted with the care of a young girl. Later, he discovers that the girl is none other than his daughter.

Then begins the transformation of the killer. The hitman now wants to bid good-bye to his dubious past and turn a new life. Needless to say, this is not to the liking of Padaveedan, who lets loose his boys to bump off Shanmugham.

Mammootty essays the lead role with effortless ease. The ruthlessness of the gangster and the subsequent yearning for a normal life have all been portrayed with the master's touch expected of an artiste of Mammootty's caliber.

Film's director Renjith manages to hold the attention of the audience to the unfolding of a macabre drama punctuated with scenes of street fights, killings and violence.

'Black' certainly is not for the softhearted. No wonder, it has put off women. But the youngsters are flocking to the theatre in large numbers.
