We almost missed watching this film, because we had planned to see it when in Kerala last week, but could not. Yesterday, was charted as the last day of Bhramaram in Coimbatore Carnatic, and we both somehow made it on time for the evening show. The first thing we told to each other after the show was we were grateful that we watched it on the big screen atleast now instead of waiting for the DVD to be out!

It is a belated review, so I do not think I need to go into the details of the story here which most of us here very well know by now, and the less we know of the content of this film, the better the watching experience. So, I think I will devote this review to analyze the technical and acting departments.

TECHNICAL

Blessy: It is palpable to understand the experience this man went through in penning this story of a stranger who disturbs the till-then peaceful existence of his 2 childhood chums! Though not his best in his still-young career, the way Blessy has conceptualized this slim theme n turned it into a thriller-cum-emotional-cum-road film is truly commendable. In doing so, he has given malayalam cinema a hitherto unseen visual treat kicking off from the terror stricken Coimbatore to the hilly terrains of Munnar. This is a genre that has not been tried much in Malayalam Cinema, and it is great to see that Blessy has challenged himself out of his comfort confines, i.e., family films, and come up with a genre-breaking film and made it successful. Though he does show his oft-repeated tendency to drift off from the plot here too, Ajayan Vincent's camerawork and the master actor's presence on the screen in many such scenes manage to divert us from the inadequacies. There are a few black marks still, though, like the selection of Suresh Menon as the second most important character in the film. Whatever be the merits, to me, he was a gross miscast! So was the choice of Bhoomika as heroine and the child artist which dilutes the effect of the flashback. But for these very obvious flaws, Blessy has emerged like a phoenix from the ashes of Calcutta News. Let all malayalam cinema lovers join in raising a toast to Blessy, the real future master director of Malayalam Cinema! Brilliant work!

Ajayan Vincent: For the first time, I heard exclamatory "oohs, aahs, n wows" from the audience in the theater for just the scenic beauty, and the scene I am talking about is the jeep passing through the intersecting road with the hills as the backdrop! That one scene made Ajayan Vincent the star amongst the audience that was present! Without his exceptional camerawork, Bhramaram would not have been the film that it is! Ajayan is the perfect foil here, getting the viewer involved in Blessy's tale of betrayal, revenge, tragedy. Exceptional n' Award worthy!

Mohan Sitara: The songs here are not exceptional, but fitting for the situations. "Kuzhaloothum" sounds familiar and resembles some Ilayaraja tunes of yore, but is worth listening. "Annaarakkannaa" is my favorite though! Good! I am not sure if mohan sitara himself has done the BGM, but definitely ranks as one of the best in a malayalam film for a while and adds to the mood of the film!

Vijay Shankar: The editor who I think could have done a better job in the first half, especially in the first 30 minutes gets into the swing of things once the film progresses! The second half is racy, edge of the seat stuff and Vijay's editing does take the credit here. A job well done!

PERFORMANCES

Suresh Menon: I do not know what the public verdict is on his acting in this film, but to me, in the role of the main character's childhood pal, this actor is a gross miscast. He is particularly gawky in the initial scenes as the family man, and it only gets worse later. There are only two static expressions on his face, once he realizes the true colors of his friend's character and they are Fear and Shock. Okay, one can argue that that is what he is supposed to portray, but sorry just keeping a static expressionless face is not called acting, Mr. Suresh Menon, and you are better off doing those mindless comic roles in inane hindi films! What a wasted opportunity, and to think originally it was Jayaram who was slated to play this role...what a miss! Average!

Muralikrishnan: As Alex Verghese, the second pal of the main character, Muralikrishnan shows that he is a professional. Measured expressions, gud dialogue delivery, n the personality, this actor though in a miniscule role proves that he has a lot to offer to Malayalam Cinema. Well done!

Bhoomika n' the child artist: The two main minus points of the film are these two actors without an iota of doubt. The out of sync dubbing does not help matters. The inept performance of these two hugely dilutes the emotional impact of the flashback scenes and that is a huge blow indeed. Poor!

KPAC Lalita: By the time the film reached its climax, I had already forgotten this mother character of KPAC because it was the usual 2-3 scenes caring mother, but one scene in the climax and you see the impact that a great actress can make even with 1 scene!!! Truly Veteran Stuff from KPAC, Hats Off!

Lakshmi Gopalaswamy: A small role, not so important in the film's context but enacted well by Lakshmi, and her quality and experience shines through in the scenes where she easily outscores Suresh Menon in their combination scenes. Good!

Now to MOHANLAL, our beloved Lalettan, no, I did not see Mohanlal the star anywhere in the film. As the mysterious alias character Jose and then the eccentric, mischevious, lovable, grief stricken n vendetta-filled Sivankutty, it is only the character that one sees from beginning till the end, and the fact that the character has stayed on with me even after 1 day of watching the film and will do so for days to come proves the calibre of acting that is on display here. Nope, I did not see Lalettan act, he was just living as the character throughout. The film, though dependable on many of the factors mentioned above, is carried solely n surely on his broad shoulders by this Acting Hercules! I do not have enough words and I do not think I am fit enough to pass a comment on this performance, I rest my case by saying LONG LIVE THIS ACTING LEGEND!!!

DINO'S TAKE: An edge of the seat genre-breaking film with a performance by Lal I dare ask any Indian actor to match!!!

SG'S TAKE: First half was strictly average, but a great second half and an amazing climax topped by performances of KPAC Lalita n' the ONE N' ONLY LALETTAN!

Great review, Dino Bhai.
Was so happy to read it. Is a treat to go through.
And one really intesting thing for me is that I walked out of the theater and told my friend that Suresh role shud have been done by Jayaram. I was not aware this earlier planned cast. I came to know only now. Thats a real surprise for me.
And about Lal, he just keeps haunting me even weeks later, daring me to go back there and watch it one more time. But I do not know whether I will be able to take it one more time. Its that painful!!

It seems once in a while Mammootty wants to reassure himself that he can handle comedy well, otherwise, one can't think of any other reason as to why he would do a Malayalam film like Ee Pattanathil Bhootham.
Agreed, that it is a fantasy film trying to lure kiddos along with their elders into the theatre. But, an actor of his stature can never be proud of such a film appearing in his filmography.
Director Johnny Antony and writers Siby K Thomas and Uday Krishna who gave us Thuruppu Gulan, a product for mass consumption with the star in the lead not very long back, are behind this too.
As for the premise, there is hardly anything to dwell upon. It just takes a leaf out of an old fairy tale where a good hearted genie is rescued from a wicked magician by some harried kids working in circus. The genie takes the form of Jimmy Uncle (Mammootty), a multi-talented circus artist who is in jail for a murder that he did not commit.
The narrative is full of wisecracks and witty one-liners that divert our attention from the implausibility of the plot initially. But, it seems to drag after a while.
It is Mammootty's show all the way. And, we are not complaining; because he is good most of the times, if not exceptional. His getup as the genie with beaded curls and a smart goatee too is endearing and it will surely go down with children. We could see that his childlike voice and accent as the genie is being mimicked by youngsters as they were getting out of the theatre after the show.

But, one thing that is hard to comprehend is, why Suraj Venjaramoodu is made to mimic him as if two Mammoottys were not enough to bring in the audience.

One more thing is the fact that this film is Kavya Madhavan's [ Images ] swansong; still she does not any significance in the story. Her character is card-boardish, and the opportunity for her to contribute something of value towards the story is nil.

Coming to the rest of the supporting cast -- Rajan P Dev, Suresh Krishna & Co -- are standard villains. Innocent as the father figure tries to put in some vigour into the proceedings but cannot do much.
The film is nothing but a comic act by Mammootty.

Rediff Rating: 2 STARS :whistle:
