Analysis:

Indian, Age 25 is a story which most of the present generation youth can relate to. Director Sasi Kumar Muthuluri criticized the parenting system in a strong way and portrayed it in an engaging manner. The way he sums up the five years life of a person in first five minutes of the film is quite well done. The dialogues were also equally good and the best thing about them is rather than being preachy, the director wrote them in a very common style, making them more of realistic conversations.

Protagonist Shiva Kumar has carried the entire film on his shoulders. He performed quite effortlessly and his dialogue diction has helped the film in a big way. In some scenes, his acting style looks quite similar to Nani’s. Rest of the cast have done their bit well. The cinematography is good so was the background score. Anyways, the runtime of the film could have been a bit less as some of the scenes seem lengthy. On the whole, Indian, Age 25 is an entertaining, yet a thought-provoking film that questions the parenting style in our country and most of the youth will definitely love this film and can also relate to their own lives.
