Who'd have thought a stride through a Hartal-stricken Kerala would be this much fun?
24 December 2013 | by sohansuragSee all my reviews

Released in September this year, I'd been hearing a lot of good reviews about North 24 Kaatham, but I couldn't catch it at the movies and I woefully regret it now. North 24 Kaatham is indeed a casual watch with not the thickest of storyline or the best of direction but for what its worth it bring out a warm feeling from within. I loved it and I have to shout how good it is, period!

North 24 Kaatham by débutante director Anil Radhakrishan Menon is assured to be a good time. An IT professional with OCD, an elderly school teacher and an NGO activist makes for an odd trio who takes a trip through a hartal-stricken Kerala's one end to the other. Stumbling on to crass and caricatures alike, comedy has been spattered from frame one to the end and it doesn't bore you for even a second. Hari's fish outta water sequences were the best among the lot.

Having starred in more than 10 movies this year and most of them garnering enough attention, Fahadh Faasil is a force to reckon with. A well established actor by now, this guy has proved that he can handle any role with ease. The OCD-ridden Harikrishnan he plays here is a perfect example where he displays a prodigious performance with the least of dialogs. Nedumudi Venu, one of my favorites, is never less impressive. Swathi Reddy, fresh outta her Amen debut and despite her weird lip-sync issues, manages to steal some smiles as well. Familiar faces like Geetha, Sreenath Bhasi, Chemban Vinod and Premji Amaren makes good use of the screen time they were given.

Ah and the music, such wonderful tunes that goes well with the visuals. Rex Vijayan's title track 'Thanaro' deserves to be stuck in that little niche in your head at least for some days. Govind Menon's score was also pleasing to the ears. I'd recommend North 24 Kaatham to anybody seeking some good fun. Its fresh, its fun and unlike me, its never too late for you to regret.
