Out of Syllabus is a film made on a shoe-string budget that really takes you years back to your own campus days. The storyline is by Sreejith I P S, Superintendent of Police, Kottayam district, and is based on his diary jottings during his years in service. The film has a small and beautiful story, very realistically presented from the beginning to the end. Even though there are numerous flaws in the direction and acting departments, the story is so engrossing, you can forgive them all. Since the star cast has a majority of debutants you cannot expect a perfect performance.

The film tells the story of Gopikrishnan, a village lad who goes to a city college, and becomes the butt of all jokes on the campus. Through constant effort and more than a little help from Namitha, he becomes the College Union Chairman. While at college he bumps into Gayathri, an old school mate of his. Their closeness drives a wedge between Gopi and Namitha, but they come back closer. The campus scenes have been picturized without a hint of exaggeration. We had two campus based movies Ennittum and Out of Syllabus released back to back in a span of one week. The two are poles apart in the stories they tell, the treatment of the story, and the performances of various characters.

Viswanathan, erstwhile program producer for Kairali TV, is the Director and he pulls this off rather nicely, even though he still has a long way to go. Script writer Lohithadas does a cameo role in the film as himself. Bennet Withraag, another newcomer has composed the music for the lyrics of Prabha Varma and Rafeeq Ahmed. Some of the songs are melodious and hummable. The film's appeal lies in the nostalgia it creates in you for the good old days on the campus. Out of Syllabus is fair value for money.
