Awe could very well be described as path breaking narrative in the history of cinema in general. To fit this film in the stereotypical box of a genre is almost impossible as one might have to watch it thrice at least to just believe the eyes of this story actually being displayed in the first place. The narrative of this film is made up of many materialistic elements which have not ever been a part of the story and the voiceover of a fish, which is quite incredible in the rhythm of this story.
Prasanth Varma has almost directed this film as a musical one act play which sort of runs on the beat of smallest of things like sound of footsteps. The cuts he has used in the edit are actually never seen before but still seems quite relateable in a strange way. Not many directors know how to use the ambience or the objects that are kept on the set for very particular reasons but the set of Varma is basically the most important character of the story as he is able to put the audience inside of his story.
Cast comprises of fascinating performers like Nithya Menen who has done a brilliant job in the film in portraying a character of which she possible could not have found any reference. The air around this film is so refreshingly original that it blows away the mind of a spectator. Kajal Aggarwal has done perhaps the best performance of her career as she usually doe not act in her films but rather does the same caricature act all over again. She has actually acted in this one and did a pretty fantastic job in pulling off her character. Nani is the voiceover of fish and the producer of this film. Overall this has classic written all over it.
