Entertainer at parts
1 September 2014 | by arunrcmanjeriSee all my reviews

Peruchaazhi is an out and out logic-less entertainer which entertains at most parts. The crew themselves ask us to keep our mind switched off to watch this movie.

Peruchaazhi is the story of Jagannathan(Mohanlal), who is a politician in Kerala. He gets an assignment to help John Kory to win in the California Governor election. Jagan and his friends(Aju & Baburaj) reach America and then they helps John to increase his ratings. Will this help John's victory? Will Jaganathan and his ideas become successful?

From the plot itself, its clear that the movie is completely a logic-less one. The crew were trying for a complete festival entertainer and they became successful in that at parts. First half was good with a lot of comic numbers and all from the lead cast. But while coming to second half, the script lost its power. Post interval, movie becomes just an average flick.

The main saving grace of the movie is Mohanlal's energetic performance. His comic timings and charisma makes us remember the vintage Lalettan. Supporting cast, Vijay Babu, Mukesh, Aju Varghese, Baburaj etc also did their job well. The English actor in the role of John Kory also was good and funny. Heroine Ragini Nandwani was OK, but the character was and the love track was unwanted.

Here comes the positives and negatives.

Positives

*Mohanlal's energetic performance. *Titles(Especially for Mohanlal Fans). *Good performance from the supporting cast.

Negatives

*Second Half. *Climax. *Love Track.
