399th Review: New Gen Romance For New Gen Couples. ♦ 55%
Let's get over the fact that Dulquer Salmaan did do this seemingly feeble project after his parade of hitmakers. He may have enjoyed playing it right with an actress who has a hot bod, brilliant cast & an adventurous story-line. In fact, the maker have taken the title a bit too seriously.
But the audience, I observed, weren't that keen for the kites flying high without control. The kites in question are the lead players: Dulquer does his part really well & this gives me an impression that he can pull off any role. The newcomer is nice, played little jittery, and to be fact doesn't sport a face for being an actress. Mind you! Supporting cast is good.
Coming to the story, the new gen couple try to elope & terribly fail. Then there is ego & "never-seeing-you-again" stages, jealousy-creation tactics, etc.. Finally they end up in a company together & you know the flow. Their families, of course of different religions, during these stages, try hard to do what they ought to do. Humor is present largely. But romance is given a bright point. With a climax so predictable, Pattom Pole is a cute watch for couples. Not that families cannot grab a seat, but it would be better if they wait for rentals. Songs are good, cinematography & direction is good. As a whole, I could dub it a feel-good movie.
BOTTOM LINE: A good attempt with something new, though it goes extra- off-beat to enhance the experience and ends up being a commoner. Recommended for lovebirds.
