When superstar Mammootty has jumped into movie production under his home banner of Playhouse for the movie 'Jawan of Vellimala', he has assured that he comes up with a superior plot and settings. Added to that, he has also brought in the fresh ideas from a debutant director Anoop Kannan. But what he missed big time is the fine screenplay that has the power to thread together the very interesting array of characters and sequences, to the desired impact. As of now, 'Jawan of Vellimala' gives a look of a movie that has a fine base for a blockbuster, but one that lacked finesse to end up as one.
Mammootty plays an interesting character named Gopikrishnan, a former Jawan of the Indian Army who returned home from Kargil war after injuring his eye. Now working as a pump operator at the Vellimala dam, his queer nature of seeing spirits in the dark and associated cowardice is a mockery for most in the area. Gopi has more attachment with the dam as his father was shot dead while protesting for the dam, years ago. The movie falls into place with the arrival of Varghese (Sreenivasan), the executive engineer who finds some grave irregularities in the dam's construction. A young lad named Koshy Oommen (Asif Ali) also arrives there to settle the long pending bills due to his already deceased father, who was the contractor. Also in other important roles are Chacko (Baburaj) the chief engineer, and Anitha (Mamtha) the camp
