Just like hell
8 December 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie is a straight lift from 'just like heaven', the reese witherspoon rom-com. The screenplay is a big let down, the acting is superficial, and the production value is pitiful. Its all about an eccentric called Sreekumar who can speak to the spirit of Rita and there is a weird reason for this... similar IQ! After lot of confusion, Sreekumar finds that Rita is actually alive, but the soul escaped from the body and she is in coma state in a hospital. The movie is clearly an attempt by the one-time ace director Fazil desperately trying to make a comeback. He ripped off a beautiful English movie and managed to array a range of stars like Mohanlal, Nayantara, Mukesh, and Harisree Asokan. He would have dreamt of making another 'manichitrathazhu' which was an original and one of the best movies ever made in Malayalam. Fazil still has capability, but his screenplay is so artificial that one wonders whats in his mind when writing those contrived dialogs. Nobody speaks nowadays like the way Mohanlal or Nayan speaks in this movie. Its pretty similar to a drama. Moreover, Mohanlal's hammy acting is a real burden. Not for a single moment, he understands that character. The way he portrays it is much similar to another eccentric he portrayed in 'Ayal Katha Ezhuthukayanu'. Nayantara does not deliver, but that can be pardoned as its only her second movie and the role is quite heavy. Frankly, the acting by the lead actors is the worst in recent times, especially towards the climax. The songs are again, rip off from various Hindi and tamil songs. The only saving grace is Mukesh who, as usual, very effective in tickling your funny bone. My vote is 2 out of 10 and that 2 is just for Mukesh. Its better to watch the original 'just like heaven' or Manichitrathazhu for the 10th time than wasting your money over this one.
