CIA is just a decent watch even though it has lot of potential in script.Watch it if you are Dulquer's fan.
13 September 2017 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

Comrade In America (2017): Lately, Malayalam films have been high on communism when the concept itself is dead, at least in India. Earlier this year, we had Oru Mexican Aparatha, which dealt with student politics. Last month, actor Nivin Pauly had Sakhavu, in which, the protagonist rediscovered his left-wing ideals. And now, Comrade in America, which just used communism for hero's backdrop and nothing much.It is mostly about hero's search for his lover Plot: Aji Matthews (Dulquer Salman), a follower of Communism, travels to USA illegally to stop the wedding of his girlfriend Sarah (Kathika Muralidharan). He along with other people gets caught by the American police while crossing the border.

My Review: There's an interesting portion in the film where a drunk Aji imagines himself having a conversation with Karl Marx, Lenin and Che Guevara, who persuade him to find his love, Sarah. Were you under the impression that communism was at the core of this film? You were wrong. Even though the setup where hero narrates his flashback to history legends,his love story is so clichéd.Actors performances and Gopi Sundar's music helped the movie.

It is surprising to see that our Comrade doesn't even reach America by the last 10 minutes of the movie.First half is entirely in Kerala and second half mostly consists of his struggle to reach the border.

Amal Neerad has great potential in the script but he could have made it lot better but he stuck to the simple way.We can clearly see the clear wastage of huge script.

Dulquer is as usual with his charm and terrific performance.He is perfect as Aji and he even became a singer for this film and he is amazing in his debut as singer too.Actresses are also good looking and gave decent performances.

So,CIA is just a decent watch even though it has lot of potential in script.Watch it if you are Dulquer's fan.

My rating 6.5/10
