Ankarajyathe Jimmanmar Review

This film exposes the vacuum in its plot more smartly than humour elements. It has no specific purpose and becomes an unbearably unfunny movie experience.

The intention is for tickling the funny bones with the absurd actions of jobless youths living in a city. But let alone fun, "Ankarajyathe Jimmanmar" is full of absurdity. It's an 'ultra familiar' premise set in Kochi for the audience. Unfortunately, the straightforward premise offers tedious antics from a group of young actors. Directed by newbie Praveen Narayanan, the film tells the story of Prakashan (Rony David Raj), an aspiring scenarist and his friend Kichu, essayed by Roopesh Peethambaran, who lives in Kochi without any specific job.

Trusted by the lies aired by Kichu, Prakashan leaves for Kochi in search of his luck in films. The subsequent events are witnessed by Kichu's friends Jimmy (Rajeev Pillai), Vettukili (Biju Sopanam) and Roshan (Anu Mohan). Mareena Michael and Vinitha Koshy have insignificant presence in the whole action.

It captures just the monotony of young male actors teasing the opposite gender. Rajeev Pillai is utterly disappointing in the character, which has a perfect physique. The film continually makes the ordinary seem more pathetic. No doubt, the humour in the flick is crude and goofy.

The monotonous screenplay doesn't stop the cascade of silly funny scenes followed by action elements with the entry of Sudev Nair and Sujith Shankar. Praveen Narayanan fails to make out the tenuous path that separates humour and farce in his attempt to create a fun movie that obviously turns out be a below par creative product. He simply can't find a way to whip up any dramatic interest here whatsoever.

The screenplay is a mishmash of underrated slapstick elements and it always hobbles. This is clunky film, which tries unconvincingly to combine humour with youngsters' pranks. But nothing works out for getting a positive result.
