What’s the story of Gold

Joshy (Prithviraj Sukumaran), who resides in Kochi with his mother (Mallika Sukumaran), is the proprietor of a mobile store that can be found in a shopping centre there. One morning, his mother, who is constantly doing domestic tasks, notably cooking, comes to the realisation that an unfamiliar vehicle stuffed with bluetooth speakers has been parked in their compound. She is particularly concerned about the security of their home. It is also the day when Joshy is expecting the delivery of his brand-new car to his house. So he rushes to the police station to let them know about the vehicle, only to discover that the police officers are in the same predicament with a truck full of wood in the compound where the police station is located.

While the police encourage him to change his behaviour for a few days, a parallel plot seems to be developing as expected. The proprietor of a jewellery shop, Unni (Shammi Thilakan), expresses his “love” for his daughter Sumangali (Nayanthara) by presenting her future husband and her father with a piece of gold that has a purity of 99.9 percent. While this is going on, Joshy’s bluetooth speaker begins to malfunction, so he decides to steal one from the car and blame the expense on the parking fee. But when he opens the box, he finds a slab of gold that has been painted to look like a speaker. Soon after, he becomes aware that the car possesses two hundred of these gold chunks. The plot of the movie focuses on how “wisely” Joshy spends his riches while remaining hidden from the authorities. The author and the filmmaker believe that the problem is not greed but rather intelligence, or perhaps generosity!

The movie was praised by Princy Alexander of Onmanorama for the brilliance with which it portrayed the deep motivations of a man’s desire for the finer things in life. If “Premam” was a love story and “Neram” was about a man’s tryst with time, then “Gold” certainly gives the topic of the picture justice. Manoj Kumar R. of The Indian Express rated it with 3 stars out of 5 and said the following: “How does one go about appreciating a film by Alphonse Puthren? By focusing one’s attention solely on the present. If you go into the story anticipating that it will lead you somewhere else, you can end up being disappointed. Instead, you will discover entertainment if you make the conscious decision to take advantage of what the movie has to offer you at any given time. The importance of the trip, rather than the final destination, is emphasised throughout Alphonse’s work, much like in real life.”

OTT play rated the film with a score of three out of five stars and stated, “The highlight of Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Gold, right from its inception, is its creation; Alphonse has meticulously dreamed of and produced each of the moments of the film that merges with Rajesh Murugesan’s thundering soundtrack.” Janani K of India Today gave the film 2 out of 5 stars and said that the storyline by Alphonse was “wafer-thin” and “incohesive.” However, she commended Prithviraj’s performance and called him the “soul” of the film. “Despite its problems, Gold’s first half is amusing,” stated Anna M. M. Vetticad in a review for Firstpost that received a rating of 2/5 stars. The decline after the interval occurs at such a breakneck speed. There is no amount of catchy music, production polish, or star wattage that can disguise writing that is just skin and bones. After everything is said and done, gold plating is nothing more than plating.
