Fukri Malayalam Movie Review

Feature Film | U | Comedy, Family, Romance
This is the first time you come across a Siddique film without a single genuine humour. Besides, it reminds you of different shades of farce. No wonder, with such a make-belief and incoherent screenplay 'Fukri' gums up on its way, providing a tedious watch.

The title whips up curiosity, and as always expectations rise in the seasoned filmmaker's latest outing. After watching "Fukri", hardcore fans of Siddique's films would be impelled to embrace the saying "Form is temporary, Class is permanent." Believing in such a dictum might provide a tad consolation for them, who still love to watch the director's evergreen hits like "Godfather", directed along with Lal.


Even now the 'Siddique-Lal magic' lingers on, but their decision to become solo directors has exposed the fissures in their creativity. The apparent gradual wilt of genuine humour in their films proves that.


However, "Fukri" immaculately underlines the dearth of innovative ideas in the director's creative stable. The rehash of tales of impersonation that have appeared in myriad films does not support "Fukri" as the whole action is far-fetched and not convincing.


The story is a mishmash of Hindu-Muslim family tale in which Lucman Ali Fukri aka Lucky (Jayasurya), an orphan, tries to reunite rich Usman Ali Fakri (Siddique) and his son Ramzan Ali (Lal), who married a Brahmin girl against his wish. Lucky enters the Fukri family in the guise of Ramzan Ali's son and he's there with the blessings of Ramzan Ali's real daughter Alia (Anu Sithara). Lucky develops a crush on Nafziya (Prayaga Martin) from the Fukri family and he faces obstacles to win her love.


Can you guess what happens next? The tale is as old as the hills. Yes, the variety is there --- a new breed of actors have been squeezed into the trite story, and they are assigned to run here and there in a frivolous effort to evoke laughter.


This is the first time you come across a Siddique film without a single genuine humour. Besides, it reminds you of different shades of farce.


No wonder, with such a make-belief and incoherent screenplay "Fukri" gums up on its way, providing a tedious watch.

Full of twists and turns making a fool of the audience. Do we have to pay our money for watching such nonsense?
