Kammath and Kammath, an action comedy, directed by Thomson K Thomas and starring Mammootty along with Dileep, Karthika Nair, Rima Kallingal among others cannot be termed as Mammootty's best films for sure.
Having promoted Kammath & Kammath as a mass entertainer, the film's script lets you down a bit as it seems half baked without a strong plot. The second half specially is painstakingly slow. However, it would be wrong to say that the film doesn't have any fun element in it. Those who are expecting some action packed element will not be disappointed. Dance performances by Mammoootty ikka, Dileep, Rima and Karthika is very good.
The film would have already made its profit as Mazhavil Manorama has paid a whooping Rs 4.95 crore (US$0.9 million) for the satellite rights.
Kammath and Kammath narrates the story of Kammath Family, who speaks Malayalam with a Kongini Slang as they have migrated to Kochi from Goa during Portuguese invasion. The plot revolves around Kammath brothers and things that happen after the inauguration of a restaurant in Palakkad. Mammootty plays the role of the big brother Raja Raja Kammath, while Dileep plays the role of Deva Raja Kammath. Rima Kallingal portrays the character of Palakkad municipal commissioner while Karthika is her sister. Baburaj is seen as a loyal assistant of the Kammath family. The Kammaths relation with the sisters and the problems that follow forms the main storyline.
Dileep steals the show with his excellent comic timings, natural expressions and perfect dialogue delivery. Baburaj is yet another treat to watch as he gives good support to Dileep in terms of comic timing and dialogues. Rima Kallingal has got a decent role and has done a good job and so has Karthika. Mammootty is good as usual. Dhanush is in a cameo role and is seen dream walking through the scenes!
Watch Kammath and Kammath, especially for Dileep and Baburaj.
