‘Father’ is supposed to teach us the way of living. Sathyan Anthikad’s Jomonte Suviseshangal is about such a father, Vincent, a businessman (Mukesh), who reached the top of success through his hard work. The story is all about his family, his fall and his return to the best with the help of his son, Jomon.
Jomon (Dulquer Salmaan) is an easy going youth. But at one point, their family business hits rock bottom and the rest of the plot deals with how Vincent and Jomon win back their business empire. It resembles Vineeth Sreenivan-Nivin Pauly’s Jacobinte Swargarajjyam plot vice but not the script. This has the signature of Sathyan Anthikad all over, and it has some similarities with Sathyan Anthikad’s own Veendum Chila Veetukaryangal. When watching the movie, we feel it hard to ignore the resemblances with the hero of Veendum Chila Veetukaryangale and the father figure from Jacobinte Swargarajjyam.
Sathyan Anthikad movies are best known for its tremendous re-watch-ability, and Jamonte Suvisheshangal is no different. It’s about many things, but perhaps first and foremost among them, it’s about father and son. Jomonte Suvisheshangal is adorable for the impeccable chemistry between Mukesh as a father and Dulquer Salmaan as a son. Dr Iqbal Kuttippuram delivers yet another hit. There are some scenes in this humorous – heart-rending movie which leaves a viewer with wet eyes every damn time.
Performance vice, Dulquer Salmaan is as usual loveable and suits perfectly as the easy going son of Mukesh. After Mohanlal and Jayaram, the movie gives a hint that Sathyan Anthikad is comfortable with Dulquer as well. This is the best of Mukesh after his emotional character in English. Aishwarya Rajesh is excellent and will gain more fans after this. Anupama Parameswaran is as cute as she was in Premam. She did her part very well. She is such a sweet performer if given opportunity.
Go ahead and watch this movie! You’ll smile, you’ll weep, and you’ll applaud.
