There is this extremely hilarious scene in Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan . Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Dharmajan during an exam in their school days open their question paper and see the questions.Their expressions change and “Pramadhavanam” music starts in the background. Nadhirshah’s strength is that he sticks to his roots and does not miss on any opportunity where he can make the audience laugh. In his second outing too, he doesn’t really rely on a strong story but cleverly knits a series of small skits/jokes to make another good comedy movie.
Vishnu is a natural and surprisingly does carry the movie on his shoulders. Salim Kumar returns in full swing. His scenes with his mute wife is a riot. How great it is to have this gifted actor back ! But the person who scores most in the movie is Dharmajan Bolgatty. He is fantastic as the hero’s loyal friend. If there is one negative with the movie, it is that the last 30 minutes get a little too serious which was the case with Amar Akbar Anthony too.
Kattapaniyile Rithwik Roshan is a good entertainer and confirms Nadhirshah is here to stay. I would really like to see Nadhir Shah direct Dileep next. The old Dhe Maveli Kombathu team and great friends should make a fabulous actor-director combo.
