Jayaram, Jagathy, Jagadish, Suraj. Enough comedy or your money back :)
23 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Makeup Man sounds like a boring, ho-hum type movie for those who've not watched it yet. But it actually surpasses your expectations.

There's a nice mix of love & comedy, peppy music, lovely acting - to sum up, a good family entertainer.

For Jayaram(as makeup man Balu), this is another walk in the park role. He was effortless. So was Siddique who breezes in his character as a love-struck, passionate film director Siddharth. Sheela Kaul(as an upcoming heroine Soorya & also Balu's wife) is talented. Hope she also gets oodles of luck to continue growing in cinema. Suraj Venjaramoodu(as a clumsy production controller) is humorous, so is Jagathy as a mean money lender. But it is Jagadish as a stammering lawyer fighting Balu's divorce case that steals the comedy show in the movie. Even senior actors like Janardhanan(as a frustrated, tensed producer) leaves us laughing with his hysteria.

I should also say the story was well laid out, and directed impressively. Of course, to add more flavour we have the romantic Kunjacko Boban and the dashing Prithviraj making guest appearances.

The only shortcoming I felt was the camera-work. It was nice but in couple of scenes, actors like Jayaram and Prithviraj are weakly shown. Even few scenes from the movie could have been deleted as they don't really bring anything to the story or gain interest of the viewers, like Suraj joking with the cameraman on why he prefers shooting only in Kerala or Salim Kumar(as a veteran makeup artist) drinking alone & eating nuts!

Verdict: Thanks to 'family actor' Jayaram, nice music and hilarious acts from Suraj, Jagathy & Jagadish, you are not left yawning or fiddling in your seats. A fun watch for all.
