A welcome addition into the horror/comedy genre in Mollywood
13 August 2016 | by (kerala) – See all my reviews

Ranjith Sankar's 'Pretham' is an engaging watch which create a lot of laughs and a little spooks among the audience.This is a crisp little movie which never become a bore.The trio of Sharafudheen,Govind Padmasoorya and Aju Varghese as the residents of the flat succeeds in winning the hearts of the audience with their comic timing and one liners even though there were some cheap ones also.

First half of the movie runs very smoothly as it is filled with several humorous scenes and when the movie focus on the main theme it slowly starts to build some atmospheric suspense and induce fear in the audience.Even though such scenes are small in number they create such an impact in the viewers as they are immersed into the movie and are curious to find out the mystery behind all those mishaps happening around the main characters.

The reactions from the audience when Jayasurya comes into the screen shows that his position in the minds of the audience as an actor is now significantly higher and is on the way to becoming an established Crowd– pleaser, nowadays his movie choices became better as he is trying to do different avatars with different stories.One would be dubious about the inclusion of Govind Padmasoorya and Pearle Maaney in the cast as their reputation in this field is not that good , but fear not as they have done justice to their character and are tolerable to the audience.When coming to the coming to the comedy scenes Sharafudheen and Dharmajan Bolgatty are the ones to watch out for , who creates several laughs among the viewers,Aju Varghese was also not bad.

On the whole, these kinds of movies are rare in Malayalam industry so it creates a breath of freshness,this movie also provides a message to the public and it engages with its comedies and thrills.For anyone who want to get entertained for 2 hours this movie would be an apt choice to be included in their Watchlist. Thank you for reading my review ☺
