One of the best comedy movie of 2016 with lots of hilarious moments
18 January 2017 | by ridinbalSee all my reviews

"One of the best comedy movie of 2016 with lots of hilarious moments.Nadirshah's direction and vishnu's and vibins script reminded me of their previous flick Amar akbar anthony in terms of everything. Overall its a hilarious fun filled product" My rating- 3.8/5 (Good comedy movie)

Positives- 1.)Direction and script- In terms of everything it had resemblance of Amar Akbar Antony(AAA) and they followed the same pattern. But it wasn't be that great as AAA because here story wasn't that great. I am not saying the story is bad but it wasn't as powerful as AAA's story. Script is the major plus point because it was able to entertain the audience in a right way. Only laughter could be heard in theater and this was because of the powerful script.

2.)Vishnu unikrishanan, dharmajan, saleem kumar, siddique and lijimol Jose- Vishnu who is script writer and protagonist was excellent and he was apt for the character. His acting was superb and realistic. Dharmajan and saleem kumar's comedy is another highlight point of this movie. They jokes were superb. Siddique as protagonist's dad was excellent and i must appreciate him for choosing variety of roles in his career. If you check his recent movies then you can see him in different roles. Lijimol Jose to my surprise she acted naturally without any flaws.

3.)Comedy- All jokes were sensible and good.

Negatives- 1.)Story could have been improved. Its not a bad story but i felt the story wasn't that powerful as AAA.

Is it a must watch? Yes it need to be watched specially from theaters to get the feel and its a fun filled ride and Paisa Vasool.

Overall- Watch it to get entertained.

My rating- 3.8/5 ( Good comedy movie)
