Left Right Left, a grounded take on Kerala's political landscape -  Lost and Found

Lost and Found

Welcome to another episode of OTTplay Lost and Found where we showcase lesser-known films and Shows. I'm your host Nikhil

The Malayalam film industry has produced some iconic films based on the state’s complex political structure. Political satire such as Sandesam remains one of the best Malayalam films ever created for its use of humour to tell a compelling tale of family, society, and politics. However, the more serious political films have often been tainted by over-the-top dialogues and larger-than-life characters.

The 2013 film, Left Right Left, is a grounded take on Kerala’s political landscape, focusing on the communist party. The film courted controversy when it was released in 2013 as many believed that the story is loosely based on the current Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan. Directed by Arun, the film stars Murali Gopi as Roy Joseph, Indrajith Sukumaran as P K Jayan, and Hareesh Peradi as Kaitheri Sahadevan. It also features a vast ensemble of supporting actors such as Remya Nambeshan, Anusree, Lena, Baiju, Jagadish, Mammukoya, and Saiju Kurup.

The riveting story features the rise of political leaders and how ambition often creates moral and ethical dilemmas. Set across three time periods starting from the 60s, the plot revolves around the lives of a corrupt policeman, a former revolutionary, and a powerful politician with a questionable past.

The film was praised for its balanced portrayal of its complex characters and the excellent performances by the cast. Even though it failed to find commercial success during its theatrical run, it has since attained cult status on online streaming services.

Catch it streaming on Sun NXT.

Well that's the Lost and Found for today, until the next time it's your host Nikhil out of here.
