Vineeth Sreenivasan knows his generation too well. In this new movie penned by him and directed by G Prajith, he has given us the most honest portrayal of our youth and it’s hilarious.

 

 

Nivin Pauly stars as Umesh, an engineering graduate (err… not really, until he clears his 42 supplementary papers).  College is over and Umesh is back at his home at Thalassery. He lives in denial of his doomed future and goofs around with Shaji (Aju Varghese) and Thankaprasad (Neeraj Madhav) and to shrink from his responsibilities, he convinces everyone that his dream lies in film making.  Enter new neighbors Daisy (Manjima Mohan) and her family. Umesh can’t help but fall in love with her and she becomes his inspiration to shoot a short film (which he believes would take him to director Gautam Vasudev Menon). But his one sided crush on the girl next door leads everyone to trouble.

 

Vineeth has tactfully used comedy as a tool to poke fun at the insouciance of Kerala’s young ‘chunks’, ‘bros’ and unemployed graduates. He has also written smart lyrics for two song- ‘Kaikottum’ and ‘Enne Thallendammava’ in this movie and if you are someone who went to an engineering college in Kerala you’ll find how shockingly it resembles the college life you know of. Vineeth also plays a private detective in the movie during second half and comes out fairly likable. The hastened ending doesn't mess up with the kickass dialogues and clever humor that precede it, but it feels like a halt at the middle of a sentence. But I like how that’s not cliché ridden.

 

 

 

Jomon T John has done the camera for this movie and Shan Rahman the music , just like Malarvadi Arts Club, Thattathin Marayathu and Thira. Note that director G Prajith is too a part of this Malarvadi team . He has worked as an assistant to Vineeth in these three films. Together they’ve mastered the game and know what clicks with the young Malayali audience. My rating: 4.339 :P
