Movie's tagline is “It’s that story which you had guessed…” Now, that is pretty much a statement to tell the audience not to take this one too seriously.
Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?
This is B.C Noufal's debut work and it's a superlative love story. Dulquer Salmaan plays the role of a painter in the film and the story is set in the village of Kadamakuddi. Samyuktha Menon plays Dulquer’s childhood friend. Oru Yamandan Premakadha also stars Salim Kumar and Soubin Shahir as Dulquer Salmaan’s friends. The film is about a handful of 'katta’ friends who have been together since childhood. Lallu (Dulquer Salmaan) is the king of this group of 'low class’ youngsters if you look at them through his dad's eyes. The good-looking fellow has received umpteen proposals from girls since childhood but as he says, he hasn't felt the spark yet. His family decides to get him married off, as his IT professional younger brother wants to get hitched. But, where to find this girl? Despite trying hard, Lallu fails to find a 'spark' in the girls he comes across.
The narrative takes a detour at times with certain songs delaying the story, but the tracks are good. Dulquer speaks in Kochi slang, dances to dappankuthu songs is flanked by girls often and delivers comedy liners, all of them in a manner that would definitely be thrilling for a kunjikka fan. It also has what it takes to make the fans overlook its occasional flaws. Molly Kannammali, Soubin, Salim Kumar, Vishnu, and Pradeep Kottayam immensely contribute to the many fun moments in the movie and they keep the audience interested. It also looks like many phrases from the film could pass into daily slang. The humour involving non-Malayali workers is also interesting.
The movie lasting two hours, 45 minutes is a tad lengthy too. Therefore, it's a pretty clean entertainer even for non-Dulquer fans.
