Verdict - Kanupapa is only for one section of audiences

Malayalam Super Star Mohan Lal is making big in Tollywood. His back to back films like 'Janata Garage' and 'Manyam Puli' did super business in Telugu states. Now, one more super hit Malayalam film 'Oppam' is released in Telugu as 'Kanupapa'. Mohan Lal played a visually challenged man with some skills. Samuthirakani, Vimala Raman, Baby Meenakshi and Nedumudi Venu plays other important roles. Priyadharshan directed this gripping Thriller and lead actor Mohan Lal himself produced it under Aashirvad Cinemas banner. Movie is released on 3rd February with clean U certificate. Run time is two hours and twenty one minutes.

Jayaram (Mohan Lal) is a visually challenged man, working as a lift operator in an apartment. A retired Judge (Nedumudi Venu), who lives in that apartment trust Jayaram and share his secrets.

A Mystery murder in that apartment brings trouble to Jayaram. How this blind man catch the culprit is rest of the story.

Mohan Lal is amazing from every corner. If he didn't portrayed this role, this film might be biggest disaster. Mohan Lal's natural action and his star value brought life to the film.

Samuthirakani is another biggest highlight in this film. He played a strong and gripping character. His performance is out-of-the-box. Though Mohan Lal given his best, Samuthirakani steals the show with his gripping performance.

Nedumudi Venu also did very important role. Vimala Raman did a role and her character is limited but gripping. Others did as required.

Coming to Technicians, Background score filled life in the film. Whole second half is power packed with gripping background score. Ron Ethan Yohaan should get big round of applause for background score. Songs are very good on screen. Story is very fresh, Dialogues are in sync with the lips. Screenplay is dragging but gives you edge-of-the-seat experience. Direction by Priyadharshan is just OK.

Kanupapa is well made film but slow pack narration might irritate you. Genuine trimming could have done wonders. Though the film have few gripping moments in second half, slow pace narration has killed essence of the film.

Mohan Lal's out-standing performance, Samuthirakani's gripping action, few chill moments in second half, Songs and background score are few major highlights in this film. Audiences who doesn't bother about length of the film might like this film. Mass audiences may not like this film. Kanupapa is only for one section of audiences.
