Priyadarshan film to get repeated this time.

Oppam doesn't have what it takes to portray the brilliance of Priyadarshan. Not all of its gags are clever and even flashes some comic absurdity at times, most notably in the scene in which the police questions Mamookoya's character. The story doesn't convincingly deal with many of the situations or give clever answers to how the protagonist manages to win over the police and law. A system, which keeps on blaming him for the repeated deaths of the people around him, but seemingly decides to think differently when it approaches the closure of the film. Watch Oppam if you are a Mohanlal fan, but don't expect the much-loved magic of a Mohanlal (more)

Engaging watch

Oppam is based on a script which is fine at best. But it is the slick presentation and of course, a brilliant performance from Mohanlal that overcomes its minor weaknesses. That could be a reason enough to buy a ticket for this one. (more)

A brilliant movie from Priyadarshan-Mohanlal combo

he center pillar of every murder mystery is a murder, then it has a story of the person being murdered, a murderer, his reasons and a police officer investigating the case. The hero can either play the role of the murderer or the role of the police officer. In some movies the hero is an innocent man who is caught in the line of fire. The first thirty minutes will make you think that Oppam is a not so a different murder mystery with all these indispensable ingredients one requires. But then the movie takes a U-turn and thrills the audience with many brainy scenes.(more)
