  •  Times Of India -Aswin J Kumar Rating-6
Not many Malayalam films in recent times have lavished so much visual flavour as Iyyobinte Pusthakam. What Sabu Mohan has accomplished as an art director is certain to win him accolades. It seems the scope and expanse he had to cover has inspired Mohan to invest his heart fully into his work

  •  Rediff -Paresh C Palicha Rating-5
Director Amal Neerad’s new film Iyobinte Pusthakam, is a historical film, spanning the period from the pre-independence era till the day emergency was imposed in 1975. The story is set in a verdant tea garden in Munnar owned by a brown saheb called Job (Lal). His tale is narrated

  •  Filmi Beat -Akhila Menon Rating-6
Iyobinte Pusthakam is a period drama directed by Amal Neerad. Lal plays the title role Iyob, while Fahadh Faasil and Jayasurya essay the other lead roles. Padmapriya and Isha Sherwani play the female leads in the movie. Iyobinte Pusthakam is penned by Gopan Chidambaram

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Sujit Chandra Kumar Rating-6
When a slave becomes a master, he imitates the ruthless behaviour that he himself was once subjected to, trampling over people, their future and their emotions. Aim justifies the means till one gets the taste of one’s own medicine, sometimes from one’s own progeny

  •  Manorama -Padmakumar K Rating-5
Set in times way beyond pre-independence era when Britishers set foot in Kerala, the film 'Iyobinte Pusthakam' directed by Amal Neerad arrests the senses with its visual charm alone if at all it has any effect. The extreme close-ups, unimaginable angles and magnificent shots

  •  Now Running -Veeyen Rating-7
The elaborate canvas on which Amal Neerad sets up his period drama 'Iyobinte Pusthakam' is blatantly gory and ravaged by the frenzied cries of the browbeaten. With raw blood splattered all over it, it lays bare a dog eat dog world, where heads are slain, skulls thrashed and guts

  •  Indiaglitz Rating-6
'Iyobinte Pusthakam' is the new film from Amal Neerad, which impresses you with its visual settings and charm and its making. The movie, a period drama, is set in British India, with the tea estates of Munnar making splendid canvas for a revenge story. The story that tells about love, hatred, betrayal
