Finals, it has always been tough to pull off a sports-based movie in Malayalam, even though Kerala has been the birthplace of several sporting talents that have made the country proud. But every sportsman would say that new records are meant to be set, and that’s exactly what director PR Arun has aspired for and pulls off too with his sports-drama, Finals.
The film introduces the audience first to Alice Varghese (Rajisha Vijayan), a cycling prodigy who is all set to represent India at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and has her course charted out till the marquee event. Supporting her is her father and coach Varghese (Suraj Venjaramoodu) and her childhood friend Manuel Thomas (Niranj), but it’s clear in the first few minutes that what truly drives Alice is her wish to bring home an Olympic medal.
Even the best-laid plans sometimes get side-tracked, and in this case, the filmmaker uses the second half to set the course right using Varghese and Niranj. And Arun does it ably too, faltering only during certain emotional scenes by lingering a bit too much.
