101 WEDDINGS - Malayalam Movie Review

101 Weddings


Genre: Comedy/Romance/Drama

Banner: Film Folks

Dir: Shafi

Music: Deepak Dev

Cinematographer: Alagappan

Cast: Kunchacko Boban, Biju Menon, Jayasurya, Samvrutha Sunil, Bhama

DID YOU KNOW? Shafi and his brother Rafi (of the erstwhile Rafi-Mecartin duo) along with two other individuals have produced the film. The story is by Shafi and the screenplay and dialogues are by Kalavoor Ravi Kumar.

THE PLOT: Krishnankutty alias Krish (Kunchacko Boban) is the son of an idealistic Gandhian. But Krish is a fraud by nature and has a childhood enmity with Antappan (Biju Menon). Krish is forced by his dad to get married at a group wedding, where he is supposed to marry Abhirami (Samvrutha Sunil). He sends an effeminate dancer named Jyothish Kumar (Jayasurya) in his place. Antappan and Rukhiya (Bhama), a nice girl, too reaches the place to be part of the wedding.

THE REVIEW: Irritatingly predictable and plain boring, 101 Weddings never really strikes a chord with the viewer. The scenes are a rehash of the usual comedy sequences that we have come across in several films of the genre.

Kunchacko repeats his trademark style, Biju Menon sleepwalks through the role and Jayasurya hams it up like there is no tomorrow. Alagappan’s visuals are fine and Deepak Dev’s songs are just about fine.

Go for this only if you have nothing else to do.
