After the movie Daddy Cool, director Aashiq Abu is making his comeback through the movie Salt N Pepper, which is a right mixture of all the commercial ingredients. The movie is a feasting to all classes of audience and it attracts the viewers like a whiff of fresh air.
Salt N Pepper is a love story of two people facing a mid-life crisis. Lal and Shweta Menon's amazing performance is the major attraction of the film. Baburaj's humour, Shyju Khaled's brilliant visuals, Bijibal's music and Suresh Kollam’s art direction are other highlights of the movie.
The movie has an interesting script by Syam Pushkaran and Dileesh Nair and food is set as the backdrop of the story. The story opens with the display of delicious dishes of Kerala. Ashiq Abu has narrated the story in a plain and convincing way and there is no gimmickry in it.
Kalidasan (Lal) is an Archaeological, who is a foodie. He likes old things and his only companion is his cook Babu (Baburaj). His nephew Manu Raghav (Asif Ali) comes to his place in search of a job. His boring life gets a new twist when he receives a wrong call from Maya (Shwetha Menon), a spinster, who is a dubbing artiste, living as a paying guest with her friend Meenakshi (Mythili). What happens next will form the interesting part of the movie.
