"Salt Mango Tree!" ♦ 75%
10 November 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

With one of the most reminiscent dialogs in the history of Malayalam cinema, this comedy-drama concerned "local schools and their problems." Nedumudi Venu stars, as the principal, as he does in all the films of the 80s.

Masquerading as a fake English professor, Mohanlal turns up in a small village's school where kids turn up only to relish the mid-day meal. And when a student asks him the English word for "Upmav" or "Upma," he first pretends like he's having a headache and then comes up with the word: SALT MANGO TREE! That there is the most funny part. No doubt there are lots of slapstick, black humor and witty dialogs that will keep you hooked.

The second half is more of a drama about the politics involved in small villages and how politicians ooze out money in the name of school beautification. Conveys a strong message.

Film-making factors are fine but what stands out is the humor. A must watch!

BOTTOM LINE: Highly Recommended for this is one hell of a comedy film you should never miss.
