Jomonte Suvisheshangal Review
Dulquer Salmaan’s latest release directed by veteran Sathyan Anthikkad hit screens today amidst high expectations. Let’s cut straight to the plot.
It deals with a businessman Vincent, played by Mukesh, who started from a humble background and has now reached the pinnacles of success through his hard work. He is a widower with 4 children, two girls and two boys. Muthumani plays the eldest of the siblings, then Vinu Mohan, Dulquer Salmaan and Oozham fame Rasna Pavithran. The movie begins with the youngest sibling Rasna’s wedding. Dulquer’s character Jomon is an easy going irresponsible youth, a representative of today’s generation. But at one point, their family business hits rock bottom and the rest of the plot deals with how Vincent and Jomon win back their business empire.
Dulquer Salmaan’s Jomon has striking similarities to Jayaram’s Roy from Veendum Chila Veetukaryangal also directed by Sathyan Anthikkad. But the actor has brought some much needed freshness through his charming performance. Mukesh’s performance as Vincent is his best in recent times. All the supporting actors including Anupama Parameswaran, Aishwarya Rajesh, Jacob Gregory, Vinu Mohan, Muthumani, Sivaji Guruvayoor have all played their parts well.
Dr Iqbal Kuttippuram’s script has nothing new to offer but the situational humour and the lead cast’s performance makes up for the flaws in the script. The director has cleverly played it to the galleries in many scenes to please Dulquer’s fans.
Technically, the movie is much more superior than Sathyan Anthikad’s previous movies. But CG works are a big let down.
Jomonte Suvisheshangal has some resemblance to Nivin Pauly’s Jacobinte Swargarajyam. Mukesh’s Vincent is very much similar to Renji Panicker’s Jacob. While it was steel business in the Nivin Pauly starrer, here it is textile exports.
In a nutshell, Jomonte Suvisheshangal delivers what we expect from a Sathyan Anthikkad movie- a feel good entertainer with perfect balance of humour and emotions. Don’t go in with high expectations after watching the director’s interviews. It is nothing but an one time watch clean entertainer.
