Sunday Holiday Review

The story seems to be only peripheral to the prologue and epilogue of this film. A positive feeling keeps you cheerful, though the execution halts in half-way mark. 2 out of 5 (Average) Sunday Holiday NOWRUNNING REVIEW | K. R. Rejeesh (NOWRUNNING)

At a glance, "Sunday Holiday" is meant for invoking positive vibes and confidence. Apparently, most of the characters keep an optimistic outlook to life. A bid to convey inspirational messages is palpable, but director Jis Joy could shy away from heavy preachy elements. Moreover, a pleasant milieu is sustained throughout this comedy-drama.

Jis has shown his penchant for 'heaps of twists' in his debut film "Bicyle Thieves." In this flick too, his relies on the same tactic but the result is minimal. The film is about a cinema tale, narrated by Unni Mukundan (Sreenivasan) to a famous director David Paul (Lal Jose) while the latter is in hospital. Unni is a college professor but he longs to become a scriptwriter in films. But you hardly witness a scene that vindicates Unni's prolonged efforts to enter the filmdom till his meeting with the director.

Since it's Unni Mukundan's script that unfolds before us in the form of another film, that realisation makes us insensitive to the turn of events. Perhaps this is the major drawback of "Sunday Holiday."

As per Unni's screenplay, Amal (Asif Ali) leaves for Kochi from Payyannur after a love failure. In the city, he lives along with Na. Kutty (Siddique), a dialogue writer and lyricist of remake films, and Rahul (Dharmajan Bolgatty). When Amal meets Anu (Aparna Balamurali), he finds new meanings in life.

A loosely constructed screenplay of Jis falters in some places owing to its inability to go into details. He tries to create twists and suspense relying on a half-baked screenplay; albeit he offers a surprise in the end. The story has been written by Urasu and Kiran. V.S.

Performance-wise, Asif Ali and Sreenivasan have nothing special to offer, while Aparna Murali is apt in the role. Alex. J. Pulickal shows his skills behind the camera and the alternate aerial shots of the city are appealing.

The story seems to be only peripheral to the prologue and epilogue of this film. A positive feeling keeps you cheerful, though the execution halts in half-way mark.

A twist in a story can be appreciated only when it is well supported. Otherwise, the story writer will be making a fool of the audience. In 'Sunday Holiday', the twist at the end of the story was totally unexpected and on review found unconvincing. What can be more torturing than spending money from one's pocket and coming out of the theatre fooled and mortified!   Sunday Holiday User Rating

Was surprised to read the reviews - all the reviews are in appreciation of the movie "Sunday Holiday". And after seeing the movie i am also joining the band-wagon of these appreciators. The highlights of the movies are : very meaningful and philosophical dialogues, good acting by the entire cast, good flow in the narration of the story, good soft songs. And the movie has lot of unexpected twists. A movie really worth watching with the family members.   Sunday Holiday User Rating
