" Lets Go Places ! "
6 November 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

"Road has the answer for everything",Indeed !! A director's film in all means,Aashiq Abu's 'Rani Padmini' is a delightful feel-good flick that celebrates womanhood without letting down men.Catering to all the sections of the audience alike,the well-conceived tale about reinventing oneself can boast of neat performances,technical integrality and directorial brilliance stuck together.Blessed with power-packed performances from both Rima Kalingal and Manju Warrier,this sweet tale is undeniably the most impressively narrated film to come out this year from mollywood that's sure to find a place in your heart for its genuinity and warmheartedness in presenting the adventurous ride that the lead ladies embark upon The inventiveness in narration by Aashiq lifted the simple,but well-written screenplay by Shyam Pushkaran and Ravi Sankar a class apart of run of the mill entertainers that we get to see in abundance these days.I'm surprised by the mild response from a good share of the common audience for this beautifully narrated movie which could have won numerous accolades if made in Bollywood or some other languages.

The magnificent visuals of the extreme north by Madhu Neelakandan were insanely beautiful and will instantly make one fall in love with landscape and prompt for an adventure ride through the path unexplored,the same way as Sameer Thahir's Neelakasam Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi.The visuals,apart from assuring the movie is a visual treat for the viewers,play an important role in the effectiveness of narration that's basically aimed at spreading the essence of life and the true meaning of where we belong to.

The brilliance of Aashiq in experimenting with the narration was evident in multiple occasions may it be the marriage video sequence or the two spoof stories that Rani and Padmini recount,for instance.All the characters manages to make an impact and credit must be given to Aashiq and the writer duo for taking due care in developing different characters with perfection.

The fearsome but funny gang of villains headed by Harish Jain along with the funny reporters played by Dileesh Pothen and Soubin Shahir ensures that there is abundance of comic relief through out the narration,particularly the second half.

Coming to the performances,I am unable to point out who among the lead ladies performed better as both Rima Kallingal and Manju Warru were at their best portraying the role of Rani and Padmini respectively.The sugary chemistry that both shared was remarkable and strengthened by the detailed characterization in the screenplay.Soubin Shahir and Dileesh Pathen were hilarious.Harish Jain and the gang played their part really well.Among others Sreenath Bhasi,Srinda Ashab,Binu Pappu etc were notable.

Bijibal ensures that the music go in consonance with the narration with all the songs being soulful and qualified for looping.'Varoo Pokam',blessed with meaningful lyrics by Rafeeq Ahammed in particular was extremely soothing and among my personal favorites this year.

Overall,Rani Padmini is a brilliantly narrated feel good movie that deserves a watch from the big screens.
