Mahesh Gopal’s Story Rescued by John Manthrickal’s Screenplay
The trailer of the film had pretty much said what the movie is going to be and there are NO unsaid surprises waiting in the theatres. The story by Mahesh Gopal could sound a normal cliched one but the screenplay by John Manthrickal rescued it. The direction moved smoothly. One or two cuts were little uncomfortable otherwise the editing by Lijo Paul was fine. Cinematography by Satheesh Kurup was good. The film had only two songs, by Suraj S. Kurup and they are neither instantly catchy nor bad, background score accompanied well with the plot. Special credits to Lal Jose and LJ films who made it reach a big number of stations all over the world on the Kerala release date itself.
The actors were all impressive. Sunny Wayne neatly handled the leading role, Arun. Adithi Ravi delivered a good performance and looked the girl next door. The others like Aju Varghese, Saiju Kurup, Manikandan Achari, Seema G Nair, Indrans and all were apt for there characters. Ranji Panicker, portraying Arun’s father, delivered a surprisingly enjoyable performance, showcasing a never-before-seen innocent and wife-fearing avatar.
