Regarding the negatives of Ozhivu Divasathe Kali
there are lots of where amateurism can be evidently seen but considering the minimal resources the movie makers had it can easily forgivable or might not be noticed because of the interesting story. However there are places where lag is bit to long or unnecessary.
In an election day in Kerala five middle aged men decided to celebrate the holiday. They move to a picturesque location where they have delicious food as well as booze to spice up the mood. The party starts off very well with happiness as time progresses they decided to play a game of in which they are the King, Police, Minister and thief. The game changed everything about them. It creates tension between each other which lead to a bubble which can explode at any moment. What is that and what will be the outcome of it is rest of the story.
A brilliant story which is rarity nowadays in Malayalam movies
