Much-hyped and much-expected Malayalam movie Christian Brothers has released this weekend. The film has everything like family sentiments, fights, music, dance and twists and turns. But there is no much gist in the story selected by director Joshiy. The screenplay has been made as to attract the fans of superstars like Mohanlal, Dileep, Suresh Gopi and Sharath Kumar.
Christian Brothers is a mass entertainer movie with all the commercial elements. Mohanlal, Dileep, Suresh Gopi's acting is the main attraction of the film. Deepak Dev's music, Anil Nair's cinematography and fights sequences are the other highlights of the film. But all these entertainment elements are made in such a way that fans of each actor should be impressed. There is more of artificiality than natural flow.
The duration of the film is 2.55 hours because it is multi-starrer film and each lead actor has been given equal focus in it. In fact, it is not easy to handle the subject of multi-starrer flick. But script writers Sibi K Thomas and Udayakrishna have done it very well. They have maintained equal focus to all the lead characters, which help the film to hold the attention of audience. The movie is all about a retired army officer and his two sons. It also throws light on issue like land grabbing.
