A Mediocre Low-Brow Comedy
25 July 2017 | by afsalthodupuzhaSee all my reviews

As there weren't better films to choose from for a movie outing with family,I decided to try "Role Models" even after hearing negative response from the majority in my friend's circle.Fahadh Faasil joining hands with Raffi for a brainless comedy looks totally odd on paper and the result too isn't inspiring,being a strictly passable film that's saved up-to an extent by few good one-line jokes and the good rapport between the lead cast.

Predictable from the word go,Raffi's screenplay is half-baked and tries to address quiet a lot of issues,turning pointless after few minutes into the narrative.The necessary connect that the plot demanded between all such issues was missing and gave way for a heavily clichéd conclusion.

The saving grace here is low-brow counters and slapstick comic situations that manages to evoke laughs even though only in bits and parts in the narration.Sharafudheen in particular was pretty impressive and showcased good comic timing along with Vinayakan who gave good support.Fahadh Faasil's character looked like an extension of Harikrishnan from North 24 Kaatham [2013] with the talented actor trying his best to portray a character with multiple dimensions,but with partial success.The celebrated character "Ramanan" from yesteryear super-hit 'Punjabi House'[1998] reappeared in a cameo that was totally dull and avoidable.

Songs and background score by Gopi Sunder were good with the pick among the songs being the romantic duet "Theru There" rendered well by Najim Arshad and Sreya Raghav.Cinematography part was handled well by Shamdat Sainudheen.Edits by V.Saajan could have been better.

Overall,'Role Models' is a below average comedy film that's at best watchable for few comedies and good chemistry between the lead actors.
