      Default Kayamkulam Kochunni ~An Opinion

      Venue ~ INOX, Shobha City, Thrissur (Screen 1)
      Showtime ~ 08:45 AM
      Status ~ 95% (Frontmost Row Empty)


      I think this is Mohanlal's most hyped venture after his makeover despite Neerali. Also the project attained its hype because of Mohanlal despite having a salable Nivin Pauly. The makers also projected it as a Mohanlal - Nivin Pauly starrer despite the fact that Mohanlal is playing an extended cameo. But my point of attraction is still Rosshan Andrrews - Bobby-Sanjay period drama more than the cast.

      Rosshan is mainly known for his grand visuals and versatility in his choice of subjects. After Padmarajan, Rosshan is the director whose next choice cannot be predicted. Also there is a minimum quality in every movie of his whether its the production value or script or story idea. Kayamkulam Kochunni is a straight forward take on a legendary character from the past and focusing on how a normal shopkeeper became a famous thief who was loved by the poor. Since this is Bobby-Sanjay, I expected the area of scripting would be safe. Unfortunately the script was pretty underdeveloped and we feel like the makers didn't know how to make the movie interesting beyond the usual theft/robbery of Kochunni. The first half was concentrating on how Kochunni became the famous thug. Almost all the commercial elements you know in the mainstream cinema were smartly placed with a powerful interval punch featuring the intro of Pakki. The romance, the detailing, action sequences were spot on. The only negative might be the item dance. But from second half, the script just didn't take off or rather stopped mid air (after the interval take off) and it looked like its falling down until it gained some life towards the climax. Whatever saved those moments were the grand visuals and action sequences. I expected much more from this team than different robbery attempts of Kochunni. Maybe the Swati Thirunal moment is the only memorable moment other than the climax. Still somehow Rosshan made it look good and didn't end up as failure like Casanovva. Still his issues with pacing is still seen in this movie.

      Nivin Pauly was unable to attain the required screen presence to shoulder the movie during its weak points. Take Pulimurugan as an example. The towering screen presence was the biggest saving factor during multiple occasions where the script displayed its weakness. The transformation from a meek Kochunni to the highwayman was fine. So to his credit as an actor, he did a fine job but the movie required more like a Mohanlal to save at its many points. Speaking about of Mohanlal, just see how the energy levels got elevated when he made his entry. But I am kinda disappointed with the way makers handled Pakki post interval. If there was a grand actions sequence featuring Mohanlal (who is known for it), it would have done well. Instead we saw some mediocre scene where he drinks and and dances and demands for deer meat. But the charismatic Mohanlal held together a weakly written role. Sunny Wayne was a poor antagonist and the fight sequence during Kochunni's marriage, which would have been a highlight, was marred by the poor show by both actors. Babu Antony shined in the climax sequences as Thangal. Priya Anand did a decent job. Rest of the cast were not effectively because of weak or forgettable characters. Sudev Nair shined in his cameo.

      Technically this movie has great visuals by Binodh Pradhan, Production Design by Sunil Babu and Action Sequences by Dilip & Alan. Gopi's BGM was quite good while the songs were forgettable.

      Its easily a Watchable Grand Screen Movie. Other than that, the movie couldn't deliver upto the skyhigh expectations from a promising team of cast & crew.
