Annayum Rasoolum, directed by Rajeev Ravi and starring Fahadh Fazil, Andrea Jeremiah, Aashiq Abu and Sunny Wayne among others, is undoubtedly one of the best films to release in recent times in Malayalam cinema. Realistic, refreshingly heart warming and a simple love story narrated in the most fantastic manner is how we can describe Annayum Rasoolum.
The story as such is not a novel plot, but it is the narration
and the treatment which needs a standing ovation. Regular
day-to-day events and happenings are encapsuled in a beautiful way
making the entire experience very enjoyable and memorable. The
accent, dialogue delivery and the lifestyle is very typical of
people living in 'Kochi.'
Cinematographer Madhu Neelakantan briiliantly captures the
scenic beauty. Music by Krishna Kumar too is top class.
The only 'minus' if it can be called so is the length of the
film. Running up to 3 hours, Annayum Rasoolum would have
benefited with a little bit of firm editing. However, you don't
complain much since it's a story that you can easily relate to.
Excellent performance by the entire star cast only adds to the
beauty of the film. A few romantic sequences between the two lead -
Fahadh and Andrea is adorable though they don't exchange too many
dialogues. The best part of Rajeev Ravi's direction is that the
narration never becomes melodramatic.
Rasool (Fahadh Fazil) is a taxi driver who has been living in Mattancherry for years. He has a brother named Haider (Ashiq Abu), who works at a local ferry. Their father lives in Ponnanni with his second wife.
Anna Josephina (Andrea Jeremiah) is a sales girl in a famous
company in Ernakulam. They slowly become attached to each other
since they both are frank and honest. However, situation becomes
ugly once it comes to light that Rasool and Anna's brother are
having a feud and are in very bad terms.
The entire star cast of Annayum Rasoolum have given an outstanding performance. Fahadh Fazil seems to be maturing with each film and he is brilliant, and so is Andrea. Their expressions and body language speak volumes about what they (characters) feel for each other and the situation that they are in.
Annayum Rasoolum is a must watch! You are sure to come out feeling refreshed and content.
