B Unnikrishnan’s ‘Christopher’, starring Mammootty, is a loud, blunt weapon of a movie about a vigilante cop

Spoilers ahead…

Even after a tragic backstory, Mammootty is asked to do so little that he powers along solely on the basis of his charisma.

No means no. That’s what Christopher (Mammootty) wants for women. But very often, toxic and powerful men do not take no for an answer – and the women end up punished. It’s been a while since I have seen women put through as many gruesome rapes and burnings and other forms of torture. Christopher is the cop who ensures that the men responsible for these crimes end up being punished. He simply shoots them. It’s been a while since I have seen a cop so trigger-happy, even in the midst of crowds. There’s probably a genuinely serious drama to be made about how – at least from a certain point of view – extrajudicial killings are the only way to punish those who have the power to escape the clutches of the law. But Christopher, directed by B Unnikrishnan, is not that movie.
