Mohanlal ,The movie directed by Sajid Yahiya hit theatres on April 14th as vishu release. The movie was released amid huge fan fares. The song and trailer which was released earlier were instant hits on social media platform.
Manju Warrier plays the lead in the movie as a hardcore Mohanlal fan-Meenukutty aka Meenakshi,who was born on the same day when Mohanlal made his appearance on the big screen, as the baddie in Manjil Virinja Pookkal. After watching Onnu Muthal Poojyam Vare, she became addicted to “Lalettan” and that continued even after she fell in love with Sethu. .
In this movie the director is trying to tell about how her fancraze for Mohanlal making thus making things get worse. Indrajith Sukumaran essays the main lead and plays husband to Meenakshi. the movie also stars Aju Varghese, Salim Kumar, Soubin Shahir, K. P. A. C. Lalitha, Siddique and Hareesh Perumanna. The song from the movie, La La Laletaa, had become a huge viral hit.
In one of her worst performances ever, Manju Warrier is too loud and tries hard to be comical, copying her own popular expressions from those films which came more than a decade back. In fact, the child artistes who have done the character’s schooldays have performed quite impressively. Indrajith is good and performs in a dedicated manner.
Sajid Yahiya, director, failed to impress not just Mohanlal fans but also normal audiences and falls dead and geninely speaking did injustice to the title of the movie.
Verdict: Strictly one time watchable for Mohanlal fans and Manju Warrier fans. For others, needless to say. Happy Vishu !!
