Marykkundoru Kunjaadu

'Marykkundru Kunjadu' from its promos and posters is a movie that promises laughter and entertainment. As usual with other Shafi flicks, this `Marykkundru Kunjadu' also sticks to its promise, for all those who want to chuckle, giggle and snigger at those absorbing jokes and  worship escapist cinema. With all that formulas that makes success in Box Office, 'Marykkundru Kunjadu' intelligently connects every links to make a coherent entertainer.

Much better offering from Dileep than his recent 'Kaaryasthan' or 'Pappy Appacha', the movie has him as a simpleton named Solomon whose world is breezy, carefree and without any responsibilities. Though the character reminds of some of Dileep's old ones, the timid, apprehensive nature of protagonist who is ever ready to get beaten up by anybody and to become a laughing stock of his village, is a difference.

Living in his sleepy village and dreaming to become a movie director, Solomon nicknamed as 'Kunjaadu' is in love with Mary (Bhavana), the only daughter of the wealthy landlord of the area Ittichan (Innocent), who had a love affair with Solomon's mother Mary (Vinaya Prasad) before the latter's marriage. Ittichan is in the plans to pay revenge to Solomon's mother by not allowing his daughter to marry Solomon.

Solomon accidentally finds a saviour in an odd looking stranger (Biju Menon) whom he saves from an abandoned well. Realising his utility as a protector, he introduces the stranger to his family and villagers as his own long lost brother Jose, who eloped from his home 18 years ago. But when he realises later that the stranger was a prisoner who had been sentenced for seven years for molesting and killing a lady, his plans go awry. Now Solomon is all set to somehow throw this man out of his home and village.

The movie which takes some time to make a landing falls on track with the arrival of Biju Menon. Director Shafi who knows his fundas right, there after never let loose and packs just about everything to entertain you for the next two hours. The screenplay by Benny P Nayarambalam is pretty tight and the second half too has got a lot to offer. His dialogue lines are as usual, laced with wit and soaked in humour to bring the house down on several occasions

In the acting front, Dileep sleep walks through a role devoid of any heroism, that has many familiar sequences for him. As usual his comic timing is flawless. Biju Menon after a long time has a role to cherish, and he excels in the character who appears to be a dim-witted, most of the time. Bhavana in her comeback looks casual and adorable while the rest of the cast are appreciable in their respective roles. But Salim Kumar seems to have missed to convert a role of potential to the needed dimensions.
