Anish Anwar’s much-awaited film ‘Raastha’ starring Sarjanu Khalid and Anagha Narayanan has finally released. The film is a survival drama set across the vast expanse of the Rub’ Al Khali, the world’s largest sandy desert.

Raastha Movie Full Story Review

Anish Anwar, known for directing films like Zacharias Garbinical and Kumbhasaram, is back after a long break with desert survival drama Raas. The story of the film, which is entirely based in the Middle East, begins with the introduction of the lead characters and their dynamics.

Shahana (Anaga Narayanan), a girl from Kerala, reaches Oman in search of her missing mother. A group of friendly Malay immigrants help her reunite with her mother. It consists of Faisal (Sarjanu Khalid), Mujeeb (Anish Anwar), Salim (Swedish), Siddika (Arshad) and Divya (Aaradhya Ann).

The fact that the script of this film was written by two royals named Shahul and Faiz Madakara living in Oman shows the camaraderie and representation of the friendly Malay community. Rasta follows a simple narrative, the first half of which is generally spent establishing the characters and their efforts to locate the whereabouts of Shahana’s mother Fatima.

Exactly half way we reach the conflict zone – the desert. Faisal, Shahana, Mujeeb and Omani national Khalid Rab Al Khali become stranded in the desert on their way to meet a woman believed to be Shahana’s mother.

Raastha movie review: On the far side it is written that Rub al-Khali is one of the most dangerous deserts in the world. However, the real challenge is to explain why this desert is so deadly. The horror of such a situation has been effectively portrayed by Insaaf Anwar and his team. The tension builds slowly, using a long shot that captures only the dunes and endless eerie music.

Raasta is not a survival film where the characters take drastic measures to survive. Best of all, I drink the water I keep in the car and wipe the windshield. The focus here is entirely on the characters’ waste of energy and the dangers they face, from wild sandstorms to poisonous reptiles.

One of the main goals of such films is to make the audience uncomfortable and with cinematographer Vishnu Narayanan and music composer Avin Mohan Sithara, this film does just that. After some time you will feel intense heat and unquenchable thirst.

While director Anish Anwar ticks some boxes, he also falters at key moments, especially when it comes to casting. Perhaps the biggest mistake is his casting as Mujeeb. He is supposed to be a comic relief character, but Anish makes fun of him. Despite constant attempts at humor, most of the situations are stale and repetitive.

Raastha movie review: The good thing is that Anagha and Sarasano are effective in their acting as they carry the majority of the film. While the former has been proving her mettle since her debut film Thinkalaazcha Nishchayam, Sarajano has improved a lot in recent times. As a balanced Faizal, he delivers a mature performance. The only worrying thing is his romantic relationship with Divya, played by newcomer Aaradhya Ann.

Usually, at the end of a survival movie, we are either disappointed or relieved. Also, the makers opt for a bittersweet ending, but the heartbreak is not as intense as expected as the emotional connection disappears halfway through.
