Lal Jose's Classmates has been termed as the most awaited movie in Malluwood. There are two reasons. One is the youth brigade's presence in the movie. The other is, many people wait to relive their past through this movie, shot in and around the campus of C.M.S. College, Kottayam. The youth brigade includes Prithviraaj, Indrajith, Sunil, Jayasuriya, Kavya Madhavan,Vijeesh and many more.
The movie revolves around the reunion of the 1991-92 batch of B.Sc.Chemistry students. Sukumaran (Prithviraj) is a diamond merchant with an unhappy and incomplete married life. His friends are shocked to see an active and lively Sukumaran like this. Satheesan Kanjikuzhy( Jayasurya) is an MLA now. Piyush (Indrajith) is now settled in the Gulf. He was considered to be the spoilt brat of wealthy parents who reside in the Gulf. Thara Kurup (Kavya Madhavan), the daughter of a politician is a dancer. She remains single till the time of the reunion. The only person missing from the scene is Murali (Naren), a wonderful musician. He dies under mysterious circumstances and the entire team part ways.
The reunion happens to be Murali's dream which his parents, Prof. Iyengar (Balachandra Menon) and Lakshmi Teacher (Shobha Mohan) fulfill. The coming together of the former students is told in such a way that each and every person in the theatre will find themselves in that position at least for a scene. The movie is filled with nostalgia, sentiments, long lost feelings, friendship and of course, love.
The movie has more than all these to offer its viewers. Were Murali's parents able to fulfill their son's wish? Did Sukumaran find his soulmate in Thara? Has Piyush mended his wayward ways? That's Classmates for you to watch.
