Abraham Ozler delivers on the anticipation, rejuvenating Jayaram's career under the director of Anjaam Paathira with a successful blend of old-school mystery and crowd-pleasing storytelling.
A traditional whodunnit mystery, Ozler explores medical thriller elements with structural rigidity, yet injects urgency into the narrative, showcasing director Midhun Manuel Thomas's growth since his previous work.
Jayaram impresses as an insomniac, aged cop, transcending stereotypes with a nuanced portrayal that adds emotional depth to the character, affirming his genius casting for the role.
The supporting cast, including Jagadeesh and Senthil Rajamani, surprises with knockout performances, challenging their typical industry roles and contributing significantly to the film's narrative stakes.
Midhun Manuel Thomas uses diegetic means, like the 'Poomaname' song, to bridge flashbacks with the current timeline, despite occasional exposition issues, maintaining tonal control and effective pacing strategies.
Abraham Ozler marks a new phase in Jayaram's filmography, combining the comedic sensibilities of the actor and director into an oddly endearing entertainer, showcasing a different facet of their artistic abilities.
