Directed by Aji John, Hotel California is an action comedy and lead actors' performances are the main attractions in the movie. Anoop's interesting script, Shaan Rahman's music, good camera work, rib-tickling comedy and a few action scenes are other highlights of the film. A few illogical and over-the-top comedy sequences are the biggest drawback of the flick.
Set in the backdrop of an airport, Hotel California
narrates the story of a journey of five guys. The movie deals with
the experience of a few travellers on board. The entire plot
unfurls inside the airline. The director has got good grip over the
narration of the whole comedy show. The humour in the film is
natural except for a few illogical scenes and it arises out of
Five people like Superstar Prem Sagar (Anoop Menon), Rafeeq - a
bodyguard from Dubai, businessman Arun Singh, Kochi Metro Engineer
Lakshman Prasad, and a young man are the five strangers, who reach
the Nedumbasserry Airport. Five people are waiting for them at the
airport, when one among them, Airport Jiby (Jayasurya) clubs
all of them together for some reason. But the people who are to
meet each other get shuffled, which causes confusion among them.
This confusion has been presented humorously on screen.

in the slide show.
Jayasurya and Anoop Menon, who have played the lead roles in
Hotel California, have delivered very good performances,
which are the highlights in the film. Lead ladies like Maria, Honey
Rose and Aparna Nair and other supporting artists have also done
justice to their respective roles.
Since the story of Hotel California unfolds in the
business class of the plane, the maximum portions have been shot in
the real aeroplane in Cochin International Airport. The movie has
sound production values.
Shaan Rahman's music and background scores are good assets of
the film. The picturisation is also good. Action scenes have been
choreographed well. Other technical departments like dialogues,
costumes, art directions and editing are also commendable and add
to the beauty of the movie.
Overall, Hotel California is a good comedy entertainer.
If you are lover of comedy films, don't miss to watch it.
