Romans tells the story of two convicts (Kunchacko Boban and Biju Menon) who escape from the cops in a running train and when they reach a remote village, the natives mistake them to be the priests who were sent to open their church.
Boban Sameul whose first movie- Janapriyan was a decent attempt does a good job as the director. His handling of some comedy scenes is exceptional but he could have done without some scenes dragging a little too much.. There are some fine one liners in the movie the pick being Bijumenon’s -‘ Eee mudangi kidakkunna uthsavam nadathaanum perunnalu nadathaanumokke Mohanlal ine konde pattu… Nammale kondonnum nadakkilla ‘.Bijibal’s background score is remix of a 1980’s movie’s theme music but gels well with the movie
Kunchacko Boban does a great job. His performance is a few notches above when compared to ‘Ordinary’ and he seems to be at complete ease handling comedy now. Looks like Biju Menon’s company has done good for him. You can hear few claps when Kunchacko Boban is introduced but the viewers reserved the huge applause and cheer for Biju Menon. That just shows the actor’s rising popularity in recent times.
In the final scene of Romans, Biju Menon asks a guy – ‘ Neeyum thudangiya comedy… Kali kaalam thanne’. But we are really glad that Biju Menon started doing comedy beause the actor is simply terrific in this department. Watch Romans for Biju Menon. He just rocks
