Review : "Buddy"

The story stretched too much despite of a relation factor and Anoop Menon in the cast, film fails to provide the attractiveness and enthusiasm that its title have, while the narration also moves at a low speed. Newcomer director Raaj Prabavthy Menon's first Malayalam movie "Buddy", is inspired by the American movie "The Kids are all right", which was nominated for the Oscar. At last on the verdict, "Buddy" disappoints a big.....

 Here we have a teenage Vishnu (Midhu Murali) brought up under the shadow of two women, Padma (Bhumika Chawla) and Meenakshi (Asha Sarath), first one is doing research in the dance form and the later one is an English author. Both women just kind of hate men and even bring on the doubt that they are lesbians. Vishnu hasn't given any attention to the people's talk because his mothers have promised him to reveal that how he has come in this world, on his eighteenth birthday.

 Now the time has come, when Vishnu turns a youngster and his mothers disclose that he was born through artificial insemination and they don't know anything about his father. There begins the search of father by his son and with the help of his friend, Vishnu spot on the cool guy Manikunju Thadikaran (Anoop Menon), who's living with a retired DGP Shankaran Nambothiree (Balachandra Menon), a director Biju Pattambi (Arun), an ex serviceman Chandran Singh (Babu Antony) and others. Now Manikunju Thadikaran put a particular attitude towards the youngster and ask Vishnu to be a good buddy of him, there begins the story that goes on to the climax.

 As the full movie depends on Anoop Menon, so it looks exaggerated the way he handled his character. Asha Sarath manage the good rendering of her character, otherwise there seems to be no words for others, whether it is Balachandra Menon, Babu Antony, Arun Mithun, Bhumika Chawla, Arun, Aju Varghese, T G Ravi, all just felt at the below average level. Music sounds as usual with the hands of Navneet Sundar and the lyrics have written by Anoop Menon and Santhosh Varma.

 Director Raaj Prabavthy Menon hasn't taken the things seriously, whether it is inspired or not, the narration could have been given the better treatment. The subject was fresh, but the script hasn't got that shine to explore possibility of a brilliant one. In the technical department as well, it wasn't look interesting whether it is Prakash Kutty''s visual or editing by Dilip Dennis. For the banner of Greenee Entertainments, Augustine Jackson is the producer of this Malayalam movie "Buddy".
