Jeethu Joseph's storytelling outshines Mohanlal

12th Man is a director's canvas. The actors have a limited role to play, as most of the narrative load remains firmly on screenplay and editing. It's a minimalistic locked-room drama, which plays out like one of Agatha Christie's short stories. The production value looks cheap. There�s a complete reliance on Jeethu�s storytelling skills to keep us hooked so we don't mind an aesthetically poor production.(more)

There is no hook in 12th Man to hang our hopes on. It is bland and flat without any effect. Watch it at your own risk.(more)

12th Man is okay enough entertainment while it lasts, but "okay enough" and 'decent enough' are hardly acceptable from the team that gave us the Drishyams.(more)
