Nonsensical comedies are passé these days. Those involving mindless comic elements and capers find no takers. Even with those involving comedy for the sake of it needs to have some punch and exceptional dialogue delivery for it to create an impact. ‘Marubhoomiyile Aana’ tries to cater to such a taste. There are moments of good comic and emotional sequences and of course guffaw inducing scenarios in the movie. However, they are far in between and offer no consolation for the half-baked making. Such a movie might have worked well in another decade. ‘Marubhoomiyile Aana’ is a little way behind time to create much of a ripple with its clichéd dialogues and formulistic scenes. Though the treatment of the movie is predictable, the movie sure is passably entertaining. The onus is on Biju Menon with his typical comic flavor, who holds it together. He plays a Sheik in it, with a rather long name, impressing the audience with his Middle East tinged Arabic and English accent.

The movie begins with a rich businessman from Kerala found dead at a high end hotel at Qatar. Back home at Thrissur, we have Suku (Krishna Sankar) who has to shoulder the responsibilities of his debt ridden family. His family’s plight is due to the malicious intent of Kamalan (Lalu Alex) who used to work for Suku’s father.  Meanwhile, Suku is in love with Keerthi (Samskruthy Shenoy), who is of course Kamalan’s daughter.

The plot then proceeds with how Suku is forced to fly to Qatar to save his family, thereafter glimpsing the Sheik and the incidents that unfurl when they land back at Thrissur in the same flight. The first half of the movie doesn’t have much of a comic quotient. The second half tries to incorporate some humour into it. But the plot doesn’t offer much scope for sustained interest in a character and even our interest in Biju Mneon’s character fades after some time.  The screen play is to blame for making things dull.  Performance wise, all the actors including Biju Menon, Lalu Alex as the antagonist, Krishna, Samskruthy et al were good. Kanaran Harish was his best with his comic flair. VK Prakash is known for his brand of experimentation. He can go from ‘Three Kings’ to ‘Nirnayam’ in a jiffy; exploring different kinds of cinema. Though ‘Marubhoomiyile Aana’ rode in with a bag full of expectations considering the VKP brand name and Biju Menon on board, it has failed to live up to the expectations.

Rating: 2.00 / 5.0
