'Spirit' is a challenging examination of the psyche of a population that has sadly started mistaking self abuse for pleasure. In doing so, it flashes light on unexplored corners, where you get to see a highly literate state in the country crawling on all fours, stoned beyond recognition and hooched up to the hilt!

'Spirit' is a turbulent watch that is bound to clamor for your attention. What makes it endearing is the realization that it offers, that the human spirit forever holds a chance to be elevated to a life of light and hope.

‘Spirit’ tells the story of Raghunandan (Mohanlal), who had been working in a bank abroad earlier and who has been donning many roles- that of a journalist, that of a television anchor and that of a writer. He is divorced from his wife Meera (Kaniha), who is now happily married to Alexy (Shankar Ramakrishnan). Raghu has a son, who lives with Meera and Alexy and Raghu has Meera and Alexy as his close friends. Raghu also hosts a very popular television chat show ‘Show the Spirit’ and just blasts whoever comes before him, with his power of argument and the evidences that he always manage to get through extensive research. But the other side of it all is that he is terribly addicted to booze and can’t live without it. He just gobbles bottle after bottle of the most expensive of brands. As Meera openly says, Raghu is a bad father while Alexy proves a good father to Raghu’s son; he is also inconsiderate at times, though he is an efficient guy. Anyway, things are not destined to go on like that; there has to be a change. That change starts taking place in Raghu’s life and then on, he starts observing Maniyan (Nandu), a plumber whom he is forced to follow.

Well, that’s what forms the plot. The film gains relevance as it discusses, in as realistic a manner as possible and at the same time remaining within the structure of popular cinema, a menace that has gripped the Kerala society in recent times. ‘Spirit’, I’d say is a good film. It no doubt is a good film.
