Aadujeevitham Review: Prithviraj Sukumaran And Blessy’s Masterpiece Will Leave You Breathless

Adapted from Benyamin’s gripping 2008 novel, ‘Aadujeevitham,’ this film follows the harrowing journey of Najeeb, played by Prithviraj Sukumaran, based on true events. Najeeb travels to Saudi Arabia for work but finds himself trapped in a goat farm, where he must tend to the animals to survive. The film chronicles his desperate struggle to escape.

What to Expect
Prepare to be deeply moved by this film. It sheds light on the harsh realities faced by individuals abroad, prompting reflection on the sacrifices made for a better life. The first half sets the stage effectively, but the latter half is gut-wrenching. The depiction of Najeeb’s ordeal—fighting for a sip of water, living among animals—is profoundly impactful. Despite language barriers, the director conveys Najeeb’s anguish with raw emotion, leaving a lasting impression. While the film’s length may test patience, its powerful storytelling overshadows this flaw.

Prithviraj Sukumaran delivers a tour de force performance, embodying Najeeb’s transformation from an ordinary man to a primal survivor. His physical portrayal, from tattered clothes to desperate desert escapes, is riveting. Gokul Suresh shines as Hakeem, and Ibrahim Kadeer impresses as Jimmy Jean Louis. Amala Paul’s portrayal of Najeeb’s wife is equally compelling.

Blessy’s direction is the heart of this film. His meticulous depiction of Najeeb’s suffering is both haunting and unforgettable, showcasing his directorial prowess.

For those seeking powerful cinema, ‘Aadujeevitham’ is a must-watch.”
