The seemingly complex idea of OKMK is presented in a rather straightforward fashion for the layperson to understand and the editing work of Raja Mohammed deserves kudos for keeping things as linear as possible. Kathir’s camera movements and framing are creative without being fancy and keep the film and its characters grounded in reality, despite the story featuring several improbable scenarios. The songs are pretty impressive but Nataraj Sankaran is certainly capable of offering more as a composer, especially in the background score department.
In between this slightly madcap comedy Chimbu Devan’s personal ideas on love and the state of medical affairs stick out as unwelcome guests. Nevertheless, the intelligence that this film promises and the core positive message of how we should spend our time fruitfully will undoubtedly be the big takeaways along with the handful of chuckles the characters offer.
