Bit pretentious though commendable
26 December 2014 | by Regi-AlexSee all my reviews

Despite the hype it created, I watched the film without much expectations. The film is a coming-of-age drama sprinkled with comical instances. The movie starts off with a flashback and it turns out to be quite interesting. But as the story progresses, the film seems to lack the momentum it initially created. Fortunately, the lead cast played by Unni Mukundan, Dulquer Salmaan, and Namitha Pramod keeps the film going and boy, they are quite charismatic! Also, Santhosh Keezhattoor (as Kunjunni Menon) delivers an appreciable debuting performance. Though the story is not completely novel, the director makes enough effort to deliver an entertainer. The story is told through an effective nonlinear narrative.

The first half tends to be blunt in nature and it is as if the film is struggling to form a relationship between the actors but it doesn't adversely affect viewer's experience. The second half, on the other hand, is livelier and several characters show increased dynamism

The film's music is composed by Bijibal, a National Award winning music director, and he doesn't disappoint the audience at all. The film also feature a couple of stunts with one being a lengthy one but it ain't difficult to watch.

Overall, and I'm quoting here, "it's a simple story but well told with great performances from the cast and good songs that fit so snugly into the narrative they seem to be part of the dialogue" (Wilson, Heather). There is nothing outstanding about the film but it does a decent job in conveying a couple of noble thoughts without becoming overly preachy. It is worth a watch.

BOTTOM LINE: A solid entertainer. Can be watched with a typical Indian family? Yes
