Unparalleled Cinematic Experience!

The first half is a bit slow-paced due to the dry narration. Also it doesn't offer an astonishing unheard story, but the big-screen medium is utilized to the maximum extent. The brisk later half, along with a terrific act by Prithviraj and Blessy's skillful direction bring this one home.(more)

Prithviraj delivers one of his finest performances in Blessy's stunning survival drama

From allowing Najeeb to see his reflection after months of living in unhygienic conditions to including a scene where he is attacked by vultures, Blessy splendidly adapted the base material to enrich the visual language of the film.(more)

Prithviraj gives career-defining performance in Blessy film

If Prithviraj is one of the main pillars of "Aadujeevitham", AR Rahman is the other pillar that holds fort. His background score and songs evoke emotions. Editor Sreekar Prasad's work is exceptional and the way he juxtaposes Najeeb's life in Kerala and Saudi Arabia worked well. �Aadujeevitham� is...(more)

Prithviraj is stunning in this layered survival story

What to say about Prithviraj, except that he lives the character and is superb as Najeeb, who is completely lost and at wit's end in this unfamiliar region. Quite apart from the stunning body transformation, he brings the right mix of innocence and vulnerability to the role. The cinematography by S...(more)

Prithviraj Sukumaran delivers extraordinary performance in Blessy directorial

At nearly three hours, Blessy' film is a tad long as it tends to drag in some parts, especially in the second half. The Goat Life must be watched on the big screen for a truly wholesome experience.(more)

The Goat Life offers a captivating cinematic experience, led by Prithviraj Sukumaran's stellar performance and Blessy's skillful direction.

While the film may have some limitations, such as the exclusion of certain elements from the original novel and the feeling of incompleteness in certain aspects of the plot, its emotional depth, compelling storyline, and exceptional acting make it a must-watch for audiences. From the desert landsca...(more)

A hard-hitting survival drama blessed by a towering performance from Prithviraj.

It goes without saying that Aadujeevitham is not an easy watch. There are times when I wish certain sequences weren't stretched beyond an endurable length. But the film is also oddly comforting in that all your troubles seem minor in comparison to Najeeb's. But that seems to be the very point of t...(more)

Prithviraj's performance drives a survival drama that borders on monotony

The few sequences of Najeeb's life back home are strictly functional, except for that breathtaking shift from the river to the desert at the end of a song. Amala Paul gets a role so short that leaves no scope for performance. If hard work were the sole benchmark for a film, Aadujeevitham would rank ...(more)
