Review : "Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus"

Deliberate attempt is there, but the problem deals with flaws in direction and the script led to the convoluted situation for "Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus". Director Marthandan and Scenarist Benny P Nayarambalam fails to put on the plot in a convincing way. Watch out for the superb show from Megastar Mammootty and for the performances from the cast, we gave the verdict of one time watch...

 Story talks about Cleetus (Mammootty), who is an unprincipled man but lovable to everyone, while he has his own
way of dealing with stuffs. With his uncanny look Cleetus develops the special liking in the eyes of Parish Priest (Siddique). On the other we have an old theater group, which is short of fund for its new drama and for their group's revival, priest put on forward his stance about the play on Jesus Christ and to showcase Jesus on their play. There on group decide to enact the play and the problem came with the question that who will play the Jesus... ?

 Despite of goon background, Priest suggest the name of Cleetus for the character because of his good presence as lookalike of Jesus Christ. There begins the rehearsals for the play with being surrounded by humorous characters. We move through some past events with a mother (Honey Rose) and other characters zoom on the screen. The change that play brings on in the life of Cleetus steers the plot to the different section and the theater artist in him classify the different human being, which takes the story to the climax of this movie.

 First half indicates some humour intention with the promise of good beginning unfortunately in the second half it all seems to be fizzled out. Perhaps the direction could have adjust the misinterpretation to reduce the lags in narration. Benny P Nayarambalam gave impression of being lost too much with characters although the plot travels on same format. Visuals have been beautifully adapted by cinematographer Pradeep Nair and the songs are also suits the situation with the hands of Bijibal and lyrics have written by Rafeeque Ahamed and Murugan Kattakada.

 As we have mentioned earlier the sole credit goes to the man Cleetus that is Mammookka, whose performance makes "Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus" a watchable one. Honey Rose, P Balachandran and Siddique have managed to grab the attentive spot. Aju Varghese, Rejith Menon, Thesni Khan, Kottayam Naseer, Abu Salim, Vinayakan, Suraaj Venjharamoodu, Sanam Shetty and others have given their amicable and supportive performances. For the banner of Achappu Movie Magic, Faisal Latheef is the producer of this Malayalam movie "Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus".
