      Saw Ittimani last weekend from Dubai. A watchable entertainer.

      Padathinte USP ennu parayunnathu Mohanlal's return to the fun-filled family comedy entertainer genre thanne aanu. Biggest negative is that its a bit cheap - padathinte motham nilavaram (jokes as well as making) oru Mohanlal padathinte level il alla.

      What worked -

      Performances (Mohanlal, KPAC Lalitha, Siddique, Radhika) as well as all others including Aju, Salimkumar, Dharmajan and most others. Mohanlal used to thrive in combination scenes - athinte oru glimpse ee film il veendum vannu - in the Lal-Lalitha scenes.

      The basic theme and message was good. athu mayi bandhapetta melodrama over aakathe piddichu nirthi. Good editing and the exceptional talent of the three senior actors did the trick here.

      Throughout comedy environment nila nirthan patti. although many comedies were crass.

      Songs were good.

      Oru superhit aakanulla ella sahacharyavum ee cinema ku undu. Ente taste inu ee cinema average e ollu, pakshe serials kanunna, comedy stars kaanunna valiyoru jana samooham keralathil undu. avar ee cinema ishtapedum.

      two people that needs special mention:

      Mohanlal - oru character inteyum cinemayudeyum level aa cinema thudangunnenu munne oru actor engane manasilakunnu ennathu enne eppozhum albhuthapeduthunna karyam aanu... and i always felt Mohanlal had a great talent in this... he perfectly understands the character and the level of the movie and always syncs this throughout the movie. many directors have explicitly mentioned this including Jeethu for Drishyam, Kamal for ayal katha ezhuthukayanu (the two extreme levels of acting examples)... ee character um film um kurachu thara aanu.. mohanlal athu nalla tharayay thanne cheythittundu... Jagathy used to be a master of this.. within the confined genre he used to get (comedy) he used to play with the variations (high class, class, thara, thathara, :-)

      Antony Perumbavoor - Mohanlal's remuneration maati nirthiyal ee cinemaku oru 3cr budget aayirikkane sadhytha ollu. evide kashirakkanam, evide pidikkanam ennu ingerku nannay ariyam. i think he is trying to balance the books considering the upcoming big budget ones. he will make sure that Lalettan wont go through the Kaalapani/Vanaprastham time or what happened to ABCL while chasing his dreams.
