Georgettan’s Pooram review : old wine in old bottle !
Dileep is finally back to big screens after a gap of over six months with Georgettan’s Pooram.From the trailer and songs itself it was evident that Georgettan’s Pooram also follows the usual pattern of other Dileep movies.
Georgettan’s Pooram is centred around the story of George Vadakkan (Dileep), a priest’s son. George and his friends are jobless streetside-romeos leading a very causal life. George meanwhile falls in love with Rajisha Vijayan’s character, who aspires to be a nun.
George and his friends comfortably spend their time lazing around in Mathai Parambu rather than taking up a job. Years back, Mathai Mallan won a gold medal in Kabbadi and he donates this ground to the church. The movie revolves around the background of this ground and the various problems associated with it.
Like his previous movies, Georgettan’s Pooram also has no place for logic. There are only a very few genuine humour scenes in this movie eventhough they have forcibly included many such sequences. Double meaning and obscene jokes are aplenty in the movie. Just like most of the Dileep starrers, this one is also a story about a lazy and good for nothing youth turning into an overnight hero.
Dileep has used the Thrissur dialect in this movie and he has used the same flavour of his previous films. As usual, he has tried to make his role look good. Though Rajisha Vijayan did not have anything substantial to do in the movie, she played her part well even with the limited scope.
Vinay Forrt and Sharafudheen who played the friends’ characters were below average in most of the scenes. The director did not have any command over the movie and that’s obvious from the performances. Chemban Vinod Jose, Renji Panicker and TG Ravi are also part of the cast. TG Ravi deserves a special mention for his performance.
Gopi Sunder’s background score was apt for the mood of the movie. Cinematography, editing and all other technical departments were just mediocre.
Major negative in the movie is the lack of depth in YV Rajesh’s screenplay. It’s pretty hard to make a movie out of such clichéd scenes and poorly written dialogues, but director K Biju has succeeded in churning it into a movie. But as a filmmaker, he should do some thinking about testing the patience of the audience with such movies.
