Romans seemed to be entertaining with the posters and cast promising high. But, in fact, it turns out to be a typical comedy thriller which you can both predict and not predict at the same time. Not much of intrigue is produced as the film advances.
Boban & Menon are good but I loved Menon's humorous dialogs than Kunchacko's. Cast performances is average whereas the direction is sloppy. The story, as I hear is borrowed from Hollywood, doesn't charm because it gives you the impression of dozen of fools being fooled by two godly men. With lots of plot holes & mistakes, Romans turns out to be more of a clichéd thriller than comedy towards second half. 180 minutes of running time, & I exhausted most of my coke & popcorn. You will get tired of the usual humor, dialogs and screenplay. With an array of unanswered questions, Romans disappoints. And the inclusion of love factor is just not done. Yes, it send the chills towards the end, but you feel robbed as the balance between comedy & horror is poor and the foundation is decrepit.
BOTTOM LINE: Not much of a great story; neither it is a comic caper. But watch it if you are a fan and love cheap humor accompanied by slapstick.
Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
