Review : "ABCD - American Born Confused Desi"

Director Martin Prakkat has polished a little extra to display his second directorial movie "ABCD - American Born Confused Desi" on a large scale. The first half definitely provide the engaging stuff, but in second half, film goes rather meek. At the end, Malayalam movie "ABCD - American Born Confused Desi" is good for its entertainment value and fun, so it deserves your time.....

 Lets move on to the story, where two NRI's Johns (Dulquer Salmaan) and his cousin Korah (Jacob Gregory) moving their
cozy life in New York. US based businessman Issac's (Lalu Alex) son Johns and his cousin had a brawl with black American at a pub, which led to the circumstances of their shift from their native place. After getting fed up from his son, Johns father ask him to spent around a month in Kerala.

 Now both Johns and Korah arrives at Kerala for spending their lavish trip here, but things took a change when they get to know that there bank account has been closed by their parent. Here in these conditions they were now forced to use the Indian toilets and live like a normal Indian life, soon they make it to an admission in college, where an incident and how these guys face this situation forms the rest of this story.

 Director Martin Prakkat looks baffled in some situation, may be of four scenarists involvement led to this hiccup. Scripting could have been more interesting, instead of putting humor that haven't shown more impact or goes on to the exaggerated level. If the second half had treated well, then it would be a different one. Slow motions, fine shots all were nothing new to the cinematographer Jomon T John and same goes for the editing with Don Max.

 Dulquer Salmaan get the character that wasn't looked challenging for him, easily rendered the needs. Jacob Gregory done on the fun quotient like twist of his hand and deserves appreciation for his funny looks. Aparna Gopinath, Vijaya Raghavan, Lalu Alex, Thampi Antony, Tovino Thomas and others have given their possible effort to get into the character. Gopi Sundar's tunes are on positive side with the lyrics of Santhosh Varma and Rafeeq Ahamed. For the banner of Thameens Films, Shibu Thameens is the producer of this Malayalam movie "ABCD - American Born Confused Desi".

Vikramadithyan Malayalam movie review
Well the trip is on the way and director's latest "Vikramadithyan" Malayalam movie tries to explore more of real entertainer.

The film doesn't hold any quintessential effect that one can expect from director's stature. Entertaining stuff is surely there and on that aspect it won't disappoint you......

 The story here is of two friends Vikram (Unni Mukundan) and Adithya (Dulquer Salmaan).
