    Navagatharkku Swagatham Movie Review - This Navagathar is poorly made

    2012 has been a landmark year for Mollywood. Besides the success ratio which has shot upwards, there had been a continuous inflow of fresher talents with fresh names earning support at the Box Office. Correspondingly the   material churned out by senior dream merchants has been much better when compared to previous years. Irrespective of how these films perform at the B O , you cannot turn a blind eye to the fact that there has been a authentic effort to give the audience something fresh. Into the midst of all these, arrives Jayakrishna karanavar's 'Navagatharkku Swagatham', which doesn't have any of the positives promoted by the recent films. A half hearted movie which attempts to tell a story that's not that clichéd, it's the movie's direction that plays a complete spoilsport. What could've been an interesting movie turns out to be part dull, part prolonged affair due to its tacky making and poor execution.

    The movie has Mukesh as Rajasekharan, an English lecturer in a city college, popular among the students as 'Appettan', due to his intense affection with his students. He, being a bachelor is also entrusted with the duty of Men hostel Warden as he is able to spend more time with the students in the hostel. 'Appettan' is more than a best friend to the hostel inmates, whose every affairs are taken care of by him just like their elder brother or father. He even sponsors some of the students and is ready even to give tips on every youthful things including slogan writing to various campus politicians and supporting love affairs. A gang led by hostel inmates Aravindan(Vinay Fort) and Hamza often lead him to turmoil, resulting him to be in loggerheads with the women's hostel warden Sreerekha(Jyothirmayi), who is also suffering from a broken marriage.  Appettan takes active interest in the affair of Prasanth(Rejith Menon) with Veena( Shafna), for which he give every mental and physical support. But Sreerekha spot something unusual in the proceedings which ultimately damage the prospects of the affair. What eventful happenings follow and the clue to Rajasekharan remaining a bachelor forms the rest of the plot.

    What is indispensable for a Campus film is essentially a story and sequences that at least impress youngsters, some fine camerawork with bright colors, and good songs. The movie lacks in each of these departments. The base scripts by Kalavoor Ravikumar is not that bad , with elements of films like 'Sarvakalasala' and 'College Kumaran' in the fore, but the execution and below par camerawork and editing leaves much to be desired, failing thoroughly to make a watchable entertainer  from a passable scripts . Fatigue sets in while watching many hand held shots and sequences, poorly framed, executed and toned. In the attempt to make a masala flick the director fails to create any precious little in terms of quality. The songs by late Johnson are of value, but don't match the demands of the movie. The director even fails to etch the best out of the talented young actors that he has got.

    On the whole, this 'Navagatharkku Swagatham' lacks quality and slick direction.  And the result is natural that the movie becomes an exercise in boredom and monotony!

    Rating- 3.5/10
