Cappuccino Review

Pleasing visuals and music compensate the below par essence of conflict in "Cappuccino." It's an uneventful comic-drama without drenched in dual meanings. But the refreshing factor is missing for sure. 1.7 out of 5 (Poor, A Few Good Parts) Cappuccino NOWRUNNING REVIEW | K. R. Rejeesh (NOWRUNNING)

Naushad's film "Cappuccino" keeps a diplomacy from the beginning to not explore the complexity of the story. In a lighter vein, the director is able to sustain the pleasant milieu throughout the flick. While the less dramatic narration works well in some parts, lack of intensity in the conflict exposes the drawbacks of this movie. Like the character Janaki (Natasha) says the problem could have been solved over a cup of coffee. Obviously, this sums up the nature of the movie.

Struggling Ad firm owner Jeevan (Aneesh. G. Menon) is tricked by a stranger, Sneha (Anitta Josepaul), by sending a photograph of a model named Janaki via social media. She resorts to such a step following his pestering for her picture. But this incident brings troubles in the life of Janaki, who is unaware of these things.

Set in Thrissur, the director showcases a couple of characters as people, who are craving for glamour magazines. Needless to say, such a portrayal is farfetched in the story. The efforts of Jango (Dharmajan Bolghatty), Ratheesh (Vineeth Mohan) and Sunil (Manoj Guinness) to tickle the funny bone seldom serve the purpose. Meanwhile, Aneesh has given a convincing performance as solo hero for the first time.

Writer Reji Kumar keeps himself restriction from exploring the possible turn of events, and thus the climax turns out to be predictable and lackluster. The limitations in the screenplay are prominent in the first half and the film attains the pace only in the second half.

The significance of the title is bizarre as there are only sequences of making cappuccino. Going by the haute visuals of Noorudheen Bava, cappuccino acts as a catalyst to ram up the relation between a couple. Songs composed by Hesham Abdul Wahab are interesting and apt to theme.

Pleasing visuals and music compensate the below par essence of conflict in "Cappuccino." It's an uneventful comic-drama without drenched in dual meanings. But the refreshing factor is missing for sure.
