Theneechayum Peerankippadayum Malayalam Movie
Everything begins on a curious note regarding this film, especially when you see a bunch of newcomers in action. After evoking the feel that the characters are being portrayed as caricatures, director Haridas takes a U-turn resulting in the tedious narration of an ordinary film. The saturation of enthusiasm goes out of control and the comic scenes purely end in farce, if not disgusting.
"Theneechayum Peerankippadayum" relates the tale of youngsters of the 70's. Scenarist K.P. Sunil tries to fit the theme, which was common in the 90's, to the 1975 period to tell the tale of romance and revenge. The idea is good but the implementation goes terribly out of place. Among the debutants, Vineeth Mohan as Sudhi shows some maturity in his performance while others exude unbridled expressions, making the proceedings as a tool to test your patience.
A group of youngsters disguise themselves as goons from Pala and arrive at a house, where only women are residing. The servant Kunjappan (Harisree Asokan) brings them to protect Alice (Nigna Anil) from the nuisance of a rich man's son Benny (Felix Johnny Kuruvilla). At a glance, the hillside premise looks riveting, but, unfortunately, the execution is an amalgamation of silly incidents and distasteful dialogues. It's highly irritating the way the youth's approach to the opposite sex is portrayed in the movie.
Nigna Anil has nothing to express seriously as far as her character is concerned. A typical heroine is safe in her hands. Haridas' film has a creative imbalance; neither the story nor the comedy is intriguing. It demands a heavy dose of endurance and patience to digest the mishmash.
The absurdity and the galaxy of plot holes undermine everything in this comic drama. Despite the newcomers' high zeal, the outcome is poor and unbearable.
