Lots of Hilarious Moments But Still A Disappointment
The movie starts on a somewhat serious note about a kabaddi player who comes back to his native town in Kerala to start a sports club and also donates a land to improve the prospect of Kabaddi there. But he passes away early which leads to total neglect of the club and the land that he left behind. At this time, we get the impression that the movie could be a tribute to kabaddi but it soon turns to the antics of four kids who are too lazy for their own good. The biggest disappointment here is to use these kids in a scene that borders on vulgarity early in the movie. What were the movie makers' motive? Why use children? That almost ruined my reason to watch the rest of the movie. Anyway, the kids grow up but continue to indulge in their troublesome behavior much to the annoyance of their own families. So, what was initially expected as a tribute to kabaddi soon becomes a comedy show by these characters till the end of the movie. And in the climax, the movie again attempts to be serious with a kabaddi match that's partly well done but still struggles to get your attention.
Whatever good you get to see in the movie is the comedy performance by Dileep as George and the rest of his gang of friends that include actors Vinay Forrt, Sharafudheen and Thiru Actlab(all are very impressive). TG Ravi is excellent as a partially mentally unstable character that George has lot of respect for. Rajisha Vijayan is good but this lady of immense potential is quite wasted here. And other actors in brief role that make good impact are Chemban Vinod Jose, Renji Panicker and Sudheer Karamana among others.
So watch it for the comedy that's the only aspect that leaves you entertained in this average movie. Cons: Weak climax, few partially vulgar scenes
