We all love to hear or watch stories of someone getting bogged down by circumstances and fighting his or her way back, don't we? Which is why time and again this is a premise that's been utilised by filmmakers regularly. Vineeth Sreenivasan's latest Malayalam film, Jacobinte Swargarajyam is again one such film, but this time the inspiration is from a true story, that of a family based in Dubai. So what's special about the film then you might ask? Well plenty to be honest, as the film has turned out to meet the expectations in the right way.


 


Jacob (Renji Panicker) is a successful businessman in Dubai and he lives with his family comprising of his wife Sherly (Lakshmy Ramakrishna) and 4 children, Jerry (Nivin Pauly), Abin (Sreenath Bhasi), Ammu (Aima Sebastian), and Chris (Stacen). Their happy World comes crashing down when Jacob hits a major financial roadblock, thanks to a business associate who cheats him. The rest of the tale is all about how Jerry is forced by circumstances to look after the family and bring them all out of the crisis affecting them.

Despite the fairly simple plot Vineeth makes sure to keep the narrative absorbing, coming up with memorable characters, wonderful dialogues and some notable moments. It is also commendable of him not to cash upon the popularity of Nivin Pauly and make the tale revolve around him alone, in the process there's a lot of scope for nearly everyone in the film to perform. Ashwin Kumar, Sai Kumar, T.G.Ravi, Dinesh Prabhakar are all effective, while Sreenath Bhasi, Aima Sebastian and Stacen leave a mark. Lakshmy Ramakrishnan is shown as a gutsy character, who doesn't sit and brood over her fate but instead help her son Jerry in rebuilding their lives. Nivin Pauly does well in a role that sees him slowly emerge from the shadows of his father.

Renji Panicker is fabulous as Jacob, the doting father, husband and successful businessman who loses everything just because he trusted someone. The scenes featuring Renji and Nivin are a highlight and leave a great impact. Overall Jacobinte Swargarajyam is a fine film and ideal to be watched with your family during this festive season.
