AYAALUM NJANUM THAMMIL - Malayalam Movie Review



Dir: Lal Jose

Camera: Jomon T John

Music: Ouseppachan

Cast: Prithviraj, Prathap Pothen

FACTFILE: After the debacle of Cassanovva, scenarist duo Bobby and Sanjay of Traffic fame, are back, this time with director Lal Jose and teaming up with their dad Prem Prakash who is producing the movie.

THE PLOT: Dr.Ravi Tharakan (Prithviraj) faces a tough situation after an emergency operation done on a kid goes wrong. He flees the hospital but his car turns upside down. Now the flashbacks begin. Ravi was an irresponsible doctor even after passing out from the medical college. His friendship with Dr.Vivek (Narain), his romance with Sainu (Samvrutha) and the transformation in his life, thanks to the influence of Dr.Samuel (Prathap Pothen) is being told then.

THE REVIEW: Ayaalum Njanum Thammil is an okay film at best. You just can watch the visuals as it unfolds but even after the film ends; it is tough to understand what its makers were trying to say! A half-baked script, narrated in style without much imagination and in an unconvincing way by Lal Jose. That is the impression the viewer might have.

Prathap Pothen is top notch, Prithviraj is good but everyone else are just there are “set properties”. That includes Narain and the three girls. Samvrutha’s romance with Prithviraj is colder than a well-made cold coffee with ice cream. Can someone please explain what is the transformation in Prithviraj’s character that these guys are talking about?

The Kalabhavan Mani drama goes on to several episodes and turns out to be too clichéd and predictable.

Jomon T John’s visuals are fine and Ouseppachan’s music is not so fine.

RATING: 1.5/5
