      Default Indian Rupee - Digambaran's review

      Gopalan Cine Hall
      7.15 PM, 8-Oct-11
      Housefull!
      Akambadi - Wolvo, Koorarajav, Stephen Ronald, Varghese valavil and a sahrudayan suhruth

      Engine thudanganam ennenikkariyilla... just can say after a long time I watched a really fulfulling, satisfying malayalam cinema. One that does not require compromises of the brain to be ****ing honest.

      I had read some reviews over here. In fact I must admit I was surprised by the amount of positive reaction it received from even the most ardent PHAhayans. Well, previous experience and a bred-in scepticism suggested this could be Arjunan Sakshi 2, which also opened to positive reviews from some of these so called PHA but ultimately ended up being a dud, largely.

      I must admit my religious traits of discipline meant that I reached the theatre about 10 mins late. That also meant I missed that unmissable event of nowadays, a Prthvi introduction.. So suffice to say, on my heart, I did not witness a single kooval for the entire length of the movie that I witnessed

      Synopsis

      JP (Prthvi), is an undereducated (by societal norms that is) who dreams of becoming a millionaire overnight so that he can achieve his set of dreams. Chance encounter with Achuthamenon (thilakan) propels him in a direction that defines his life forever. His friend CH (Tiny Tom) is there for him come heaven or hell, so is his partner Rima Kallingal. His travails and tryst with destiny, his struggle and his coming of age, is the theme of the movie.

      Performances

      There is a scene in the movie when JP asks Achuthamenon, "Where were u all these days?", Well I have to readdress that question, this time to Prthvi, "Where the **** were you the actor, since Kana Kandein???" Polichadukki ennvecha thakarthu... He lived as JP. No frills, just another common youth around with an uncommon level of ambition. His brain makes him choose ambiguous means of achieving his dreams, but finally his heart ensures he ends up where he wished to be really! This is coming of age for Prthvi... it is impossible to even imagine anyone else than him in JP really. And a big slap on the faces of doubters who were clamouring that he cannot do comedy and what not. He traverses through an entire gamut of emotions in this movie. Virtually carrying the movie after the interval, to a great conclusion.

      Thilakan - What can one say about this person? His acting abilities were never in question. But Achuthamenon is truly as memorable as his role in Kireedom. If not more. Age cannot defy geniuses. Thilakan in his role as the mysterious yet large hearted Achuthamenon, acts as a mentor to JP as well as Prthvi in this movie. Chandanam chaariya chandaname manakku. No wonder then, some of it has rubbed off on prthvi.

      Tiny Tom - Well done!! A big break for him. It's the iconic sidekick to the main hero, but he has essayed it beautifully and imprinted his stamp on the role. Hats off!

      Jagathy - Apaaaram!!! Thakarthu!!!

      Rima - Had the luxury of a well written role and did reasonable justice to that. But one just imagine had it been a Manju or a Meera (at her prime) and it would've been on a different level altogether. Still okay.

      Side actors - Ellavarum nannayittund.

      Crew

      Ranjith - What can I say!! Ingerde jaada, asooya thudangiyavayokke enikkum istamalla, Lalettane kurich paranjathokke notwithstanding, this chap's a bloody genius! Oru rakshem illatha scripting, athine kavachu vekunna direction! By far the best of Ranjith I've seen (in totality).. He has given some memorable dialogues and situations to Prthvi and Tilakan, and more importantly ensured that he tapped these two actors very well!

      Music - Beautiful! Ee puzhayum is already a hit... other songs fit in the mood as well!

      Camera/editing misc - Ellam assalayittund.

      Summary


      This is basically a Ranjith-Prthvi movie, with an incredible input from Thilakan. A story that could've gone to the dogs in the hands of a lesser director/scripter, Ranjith has interlaced it with impeccable humour till the very end. Prthviraj has given it the best performance of his life to date, and a solid input by Thilakan ensures that THIS IS THE MOVIE OF THE YEAR so far for me.

      Verdict : 9.5/10



      Oh and PHA (It's our chance now!)
