Genre: Drama, Family
What is it about: It’s a family drama which ponders the relationship between a father and a son, who try to cope up with the sudden failures in their life. The film is directed by Sathyan Anthikad.
Why it’s disappointing: It stays put for this movie.
What to watch out for: Among the crowded masala crime thrillers, romance, horror and commercial pot boilers, this film was a relief. As it solely focuses on the family issues and their small joys. Which is quite hard to find these days and director Sathyan did a fine job in pulling off a good one. The film has a good feel throughout which doesn’t make you flinch at any moment. In spite of an out and out family film, it doesn’t bore the audience at any point. The emotions are repetitive, but relatable and you accept it.
The cast was a great one which was a convincing bunch. Dulquer can pull off a character like “Jomon” with ease. And he did a commendable job at every node.
Mukesh as Vincent was great, he had every ounce of the fatherhood in him and was a great actor.
Anupama and Aishwarya Rajesh had little do with their roles as leading ladies of the film. But they do leave an impression in their respective characters.
Innocent Vareed Thekkethala, was an interesting character a veteran actor-comedian who can crack you instantly. So was the case by Jacob Gregory as Muzthaq.
The rest of the supporting cast did a good job. Manobala, Rasna Pavithran, Muthumani, Vinu Mohan, Irshad, Vinod and Indu Thampi.
The cinematography was apt by S. Kumar. The music by Vidyasagar was melodious and matched the mood of the film perfectly.
Verdict: Sathyan Anthikad, did a fine job in making a family entertainer. The film had all the requisite elements which gives you a feel of director Vikraman’s films from Tamil Industry. All the emotions were intact balancing the sanity of the subject. Definitely worth a watch.
