Friday Film House is known for introducing new talent and attempting films across various genres. Carnival Motion Pictures which had been dormant of late joins hands with Friday Film House to bring to us Adi Kapyare Kootamani,which sees John Varghese making his debut as director. The posters and promos promised a youthful, fun entertainer, so does the end product turn out to be all that good?

The film has a simple plot and it is all about the happenings in the men's hostel of a college. Adhista Lakshmi (Namitha Pramod) doesn't want to marry the boy chosen by her father (John Vijay) and comes across Bhanuprasad (Dhyan Sreenivasan), a college student who is in need of money urgently. Lakshmi gives Bhanu the money he needs and in return makes him take her to his hostel for some unexplained reason. While getting into the hostel was easy, getting out seems to be impossible. So how do Bhanu and his friends Bruno (Aju Varghese), Remo (Neeraj Madhav) and Koshy (Vineeth Mohan) help Lakshmi in getting out and how do they manage to stay away from the prying eyes of the Warden, Father Alfred Kattuvilayil (Mukesh) and Shanthappan (Bijukuttan) is what the rest of the film is all about.

Director John Varghese doesn't waste any time in setting up the premise and there is no unnecessary footage devoted to character introductions. The premise has enough scope for humour and neither the writers (John Varghese and Abhilash S.Nair) nor the actors disappoint. There is an underlying undercurrent of horror/supernatural thriller but it is never distracting and the emphasis is definitely on making the audience laugh on a regular basis. Despite the rather wafer thin plot it is to the director's credit that the proceedings are engaging all the way. Mukesh gets good screen time but doesn't really have much to do in terms of the humour aspect, while Bijukuttan is quite effective as the hostel attendant who suspects the presence of a "yakshi" in the hostel.

Namitha Pramod as expected has done well while Vineeth Mohan leaves an impact as well. Dhyan Sreenivasan's role reminds us of his role in Kunjiramayanam due to similar shades. Aju Varghese and Neeraj Madhav continue to impress here as well. Overall Adi Kapyare Kootamani is a fun entertainer, not really a trendsetter as such, but guarantees a time pass outing at the cinemas for sure.
