Good, but not that good.
17 February 2019 | by thomas_kurianSee all my reviews

Vijay superum pournamiyum is a good comedy-drama and is a definite one time watch, but with flaws.

First of all the story line was pretty good for a movie of this genre (even though it's a remake) and the progression of the plot is also actually pretty good until when it comes to the end of the movie where its quality drops. The dialogues were good as well. But many comedy scenes and one-liners were not really that funny, but still it was decent.

The performances from the cast are good as well. Asif Ali and Aishwarya Lekshmi did a decent job with the characters (though not the best of performances) and most others did fine as well (Siddique was good as always). But I was not convinced with performance of Renji Panicker especially with his comedy part. He was not that funny. The role was not apt for him.

I don't understand why Joseph Annamakutty Jose was cast in this movie. He definitely has nothing at all to do and just has minimal dialogues and screen presence. Balu Varghese was more than enough as a supporting cast to Asif and casting of Joseph was unnecessary.

Again when the story reaches the climax, the presentation was not that good and dialogues became over dramatic at times. The presentation of the climax could have been made simpler rather than including complex scenarios and over dramatic dialogues. (The radio interview scenes)

Again the bgm thoughout the movie was just SO overused and was just irritating at times.

Overall, it is a good movie in the comedy-drama genre. Who can watch: People who love simple yet emotional 'feel good' movies can definitely go for this one.
