Njan Prakashan: Or Of Coming into Terms With Oneself

The progeny of the famous Sathyan Anthikkad-Sreenivasan combo , Njan Prakashan starring Fahadh Fasil as the eponymous protagonist may tumble as it spans genres, but it does provide for an enjoyable experience. A beautiful score combined with a set of melodious songs augments a movie held aloft by a riveting performance from Fahadh.
