The screenplay written by Siddique himself had numerous moments to chill-out in the first half that we usually expect from the director.With elements of humor,action and sentiments added in adequate proportions,the first half of the movie was among the bests of 2015 and gave good buildup for the second half.But sadly,the post interval part was much below the expectations and failed to carry the momentum that the first offered.
The screen presence of Mammookka and some good performance from the cast saved the movie up-to an extent,but a poor and done to death climax spoiled what could have been a really lovable family entertainer.Had a bit more care been taken to present the second half in a better way,the result could have been a much better experience.Even though the movie is labeled as a family entertainer there are enough and more sequences to satisfy the die-hards of the Megastar looking for some powerful dialogs and action sequences from their favorite hero.
Humor element lead by the trio of Harisree Ashokan,Saju Navodaya and Kalabhavan Shajon was good through the first hour but couldn't make much impact on scenes post the interval.There were lot of unwanted loud comedies and mockery which could have been easily avoided to shorten the duration of the movie.The climax portions were handled amateurish and too substandard considering the mastery of a director like Siddique,who has given some of the most influential climaxes in the history of Malayalam cinema.
Coming to the performances,Mammooka was at his best portraying the character of Bhaskar with immense energy and powerful dialog delivery.Looking handsome as always its Mammookka's screen presence that saved the movie up-to an extent when the screenplay failed to generate the necessary thrills towards the second half.Nayan Thara did her part well and was convincing in her role.Baby Anika and Master Sanoop were lovable and gave good performances.J.D.Chakravarthy was impressive,but his dubbing could have been dealt better.Among others,Janrdhanan was good where as Harisree Ashokan,Kalabhavan Shajon etc couldn't shine much with their comedy numbers..
Music and Score by Deepak Dev was good and all the songs were picturized well.Visuals by Vijay Ulaganath was colorful.Cuts by K.R.Gowri Shanker could have been better and more careful trimming could have created better results on the screen.There were lot of lengthy unwanted sequences which could have been easily chopped off while in the editing table.
Overall,Bhaskar The Rascal is a watchable feel-good movie that can turn a decent watch if you go with zero expectations.
Verdict::Bhaskar The Rascal had all the elements in store for producing a really engrossing family entertainer,but ended as a watchable affair,the major reason being a strictly average second half and a poorly presented climax.Not a must watch,but a watchable entertainer for the families.
