Adi Kapyare Koottamani is one among the new releases in Mollywood in this Christmas season and it is directed by a newcomer named John Varghese. The film is the production venture Friday Film house owned by Vijay Babu and Sandra Thomas in association with Carnival motion pictures. It’s their first production in association. The film did not generated much hype to say honestly as it had no big stars or big names associated with it. The film had young talents like Dhyan Sreenivasan, Namitha Pramod, Aju Varghese, Neeraj Madhav etc and along with them Mukesh is also playing a key role in this Abhilash S Nair and Jon Varghese scripted film.
The plot of the film revolves around a boy’s hostel and the problems occurred there when a girl enters there due to some reasons. Dhyan Sreenivasan and Namitha playing the central characters in this film. The story really kicks off when Dhyan’s character Bhanu Prasad help Namitha’s character Adhista Lakshmi to enter into the men’s hostel he is living in exchange of 20000 Rs which he needs urgently. Other inmates in the hostel does not know about this. But she got stuck in there and that makes the situation complex as well as hilarious.
The flick has been a fun filled entertainer which has elements to make you sit through till the end. The screenplay is only aimed at making you laugh and it had succeeded in it as well. But we cannot say that it is a complete entertainer with all elements worked well. The atmosphere in the boys hostel has been picturized very well and youngsters can related to it very easily. The narration is simple and does not have much complexity in it.
John Varghese had done a good job as a debutant film maker and the script by him and Abhilash Nair was a decent one as well. The film rides mostly on the comic timing of the artists and the highlight was the performances of Aju Varghese and Neeraj Madhav. Aju with Two Countries and Adi Kapyare to his credit is becoming the most valuable comedy artist/supporting actor in Mollywood. His character named Bruno had really took the audience in hand with some hilarious numbers on screen. Dhyan Sreenivasan also done a neat job as the male lead even though his speed while delivering dialogue sometime caused lessening of the comic effect of the dialogues. Namitha Pramod as usual looked cute and charming and neatly done her character along with others.
Shan Rahman’s music was superb and it was really elevated the energy level of the film big time. But the visualization of that songs not really went well and it was a negative of the film. Ajay David Kachappilly’s DOP was also very good as well. In total. Adi Kapyare Koottamani is a fun filled decent entertainer which will make you relax at the cinema hall. It’s like the comedies we saw in the 1990’s which is simple and enjoyable.
