Finally lalettan delivers.
But I was disappointed. I went for the movie expecting some tear-jerking tummy aching comedy….but what I got was something very different.
It was a meta-movie…a movie about movie making…and a very satirical one at that which takes good digs at the super-stardom in Mollywood. But surely they are exaggerating?!! Do they really change the script the suit the super-stars? I know that there were movies like Harikrishnans which had two endings to cater to different areas....but do superstars in malluland demand to change the script to suit them?
They were also very good digs on Mohanlal and his export business and about all the good actresses retiring after getting married.
Good performances by Sreenivasan and Mohanlal though lalettan overdid it quite a lot in the first 2-3 scenes.
What I liked about the movie were the songs. Liked all of them. Especially parayathe..... which has a haunting romantic tune to it perfected by Yesudas and Chithra and also karale karalinte ….especially the new sound given to it by Vineeth Sreenivasan, who is actor Sreenivasan’s son if I am not mistaken. Really good job by Deepak Dev on the music scene. Karale... is my earworm these days.
Only one spoiler. Why don’t they serve bhajji in the KSFC cinemas? Had to make do with an oversweet cone-icecream :(
