The Elephant Has Starved To Death. ♦ Grade F
23 October 2016 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Comedy films in the Malayalam industry are turning out to be substandard works that rely on crass. V K Prakash's latest feature is one such film.

Sugu (Krishna Shankar) is a loafer who is currently not in a good financial state. In order to make some quick moolah, he engages in a smuggling assignment in Qatar, where, although he succeeds, is not paid fully by the employer. A disappointed Sugu flies back to Kerala during which he meets a sheikh (Biju Menon), a royal family member. He hopes to use him as bait and get rich, but he does not know whether the sheikh is really who he claims to be...

The dramatic setup takes at least an hour to materialize, and when Menon enters the scene as this raunchy make-believe billionaire, the tone suddenly changes to comedy as the characters set into motion and blurt out jokes about sexism among other topics. Nevertheless, the film fails to appeal as the viewer continues to hope that there will be a moment which would make him/her laugh. Unfortunately, that moment never arrives and the film is conveniently ended with two to three clichéd twists that is related to the central character's foxiness. Duh! There is enough evidence to confirm that the writers had no idea how to create a flowy script as certain scenes in the film look hell out of place and badly made-up. Although, these do not affect the film's storyline, they definitely reduce the movie-watching experience.

Menon is effortlessly lazy in the film compared to his previous comedy hit, Vellimoonga (2014), and Shankar tries to do his bit with diligence, but loses clarity due to the poor direction. Balu Varghese and Lalu Alex are decent with their roles. The actress is namesake. Overall, even though the cast do an average job, the film's weak storyline and unimaginative theme completely reduces the film's entertainment quotient.

BOTTOM LINE: V K Prakash's "Marubhoomiyile Aana" is based on those Malayalam 80s-90s' slapstick comedies which were hilarious and funny. This contrived variation of those films is not a point funny. Wait for TV premiere, if you will.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
