GULAN is a country
29 August 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The earlier mega hit of Mammootty 'Rajamanikyam' altered some prejudices primarily in the minds of cine goers and even some film makers. It is evident that Mammootty's newly acquired images in handling comedies , has been the center plot of all the events staged in this new flick- Thuruppughulan

The story is supposed to be a full length comedy action thriller, showing threads of a Govinda-Kaadar Khan starrer of the mid nineties. The profile of the lead character Kunjumom alias Ghulan played by Mammootty is of a sharp successful gambler, goonda and street shop attacked owner who likes to read child magazines and dreams of becoming a star dancer. He is the "everything" of Kozhikode town with friends ranging from the police to billionaires and even streetwallahs. He is forced to move with his gang to Kochi where his father Kochuthoma(Innocent) is facing a threat from the care takers of a star hotel. Kochuthoma's attacked which is spoiling the front elevation of the Hotel Raj Palace, is the reason for the hostility between the two. Ghulan enters the fray to clear off the mess and the hotel and how he manages to get over the propositions is the plot. In the other simultaneous track, Sneha is playing the character of Lekshmi-who is the daughter of the original owner of Raj Palace, who comes to Kerala from Singapore to sell the hotel to find money to save her father, played by Devan, who is in jail following an economic mishap. Here the hotel care takers try to demolish Lekshmi to avoid the deal and in the course she meet Kunjumon without knowing his profile. The negative lot, a lot in numbers ranging from Kalashala Baabu to Sureshkrisna join together to eliminate both and the rest is a comedy of errors.

Even though the basic plot seems to be promising, the film has lost the tempo in the second half, cluttered to become a star show

Script by Sibi.K.Thomas - Uday Krissna lacks luster and is even presented with less believability. But the festival moods all through and added masalas will definitely bring in good numbers of takers which is evident before all release centers now. All together, it is an out and out Mammmootty film - with the rest of the casts ranging from Sneha, Innocent, Kalashala Baabu, Jagathy Suraj, Harishree Ashokan and Cochin Haneef having not much to offer. The film's music department by Alex Paul and Kaithapram is without any flavor delivering two un-hummable songs in the irascible lyrics. The film is cinematographed by Sanjeevsankar and is produced by Milan Jaleel of Galaxy Films.

The highlight of the film is the brisk pace by which the director Johny Antony passes through the events without lending time to think about the other loopy crass. The film is sure to hold masses for its wholesome entertainment, even though in weaker terms. Any way, louder applause, giggles and shouts in release centers zeal it as another film for the Mammootty's fanship and one that will definitely continue his hit parade.
