If you have seen the trailer of ‘Oru Second Class Yathra’, then you'll probably know where this train is heading to, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the ride. For the first half there aren’t many bumps on the way, thanks to an appealing cast and some funny dialogues.

Joju George and Sreejith Ravi play the cops Jolly Kurian and Balagopal. Rivals since their training days in police academy, these two find it hard to accede to their new duty when they find out that it involves working as a team. They are required to take two convicts from Kannur to Poojapura jail in Trivandrum. For this they board a second class train and the felons that follow are Maaran (Chemban Vinod) and Nandu (Vineeth Sreenivasan). The rest of the movie describes the funny incidents that happen during the journey and then snaps into the flashback stories of Nandu and Maaran in between.

Even though Vineeth’s character is pivotal to the story line, he doesn’t have many dialogues to deliver. We see him play an extremely reticent character. Fun ends and flashback start rolling in the second half. The rest of it is just yawn; they show you the typical monotonous backstory of the mysterious hero – his tragic high school crush story, dhavani cladded sister (Nikki Galrani), perverted step dad (Nedumudi Venu), obligatory weepy sessions and some more of those cliché plots.

But writer-directors Jexson Antony and Rejis Antony have played it cool by choosing the right cast for their characters. Like even when the script unfolds in an obvious fashion, the acting keeps you engaged throughout. If it weren’t for the performances of Chemban Vinod and Joju George, all those smutty jokes would have fallen flat.

 

The journey won’t bore you much because it’s just 105 minutes long. Take a ride but don’t expect too much, keep in mind that you’ve opted for a second class.
