Just wow..................and not in a good way
9 September 2017 | by TheDennisBergkampFanSee all my reviews

I was just trying to be inside Fahadh's head as he was being read the script by the director. He is thinking.........I have done Maheshinthe Prathikaram.....soon Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum will come out..... I am a better actor than this.....I deserve better scripts. Another part of him is trying to rationalize it.....you are getting paid dude.

I saw CIA: Comrade in America just a day ago and I was quite convinced that surely a movie starring Fahadh would be better. I was really really wrong. They are almost as bad as each other. The only saving grace for Role Models is that there are a few funny exchanges between the cast. I genuinely feel bad for Vinayakan that he had to act in this embarrassment of a movie. Imagine going from Kammatipaadam to this.

This is yet another pointless movie from the Malayalam film industry. To be honest there have been quite a few in recent times. Other than get the cast paid it really accomplishes nothing. Its a waste of time & money. Anyone who watches the movie is a lesser human being for having watched it.

There is this scene in the movie in which Namitha is on a Jet ski. You really have to watch it to believe the quality of the CGI. They undid decades of pioneering work in CGI with those few scenes of Namitha on a Jet Ski. Malegaon ka Superman had better CGI than Role Models. If I was the director I would retire on the spot for having thought that I could get away with that level of amateur movie-making. I actually paused the movie and laughed for a minute or two. It was just that laughable.

The director should just find his career counsellor and slap him around a bit. Everyone associated with this movie should take a break for a while and have a rethink about where they are headed.
