Lal Jose's latest directorial venture Pullipulikalum Aattinkuttiyum can be regarded as the best comedy entertainer of the year. The movie has been shot in the locales of Kuttanada. Pullipulikalum Aattinkuttiyum is a return to the mood and format of Lal Jose' earlier films like Meesa Madhavan and Chandhupottu.
Chakka Gopan (Kunchacko Boban) is a house boat owner. Gopan has three brothers who spend all their time sleeping. They are absolute lazybones who doesn't believe in working. As a sport they indulge in feuds, and since many people are scared of bullying trio, they try to settle the score with their sweet-tempered little brother Chakka Gopan.
Kainakari Jayasree (Namitha Pramod) is a classical dancer. Gopan appoints her as the in-house artist, and they perform for the tourists who hire his boat. He tries to impress the foreigners with classical dance. Gopan falls deeply in love with her. How Gopan manages to marry Jayasree and make his brothers come on the right track, form the rest of the story.
Pullipulikalum Aattinkuttiyum presents Kunchacko in all-new avatar. It's a through comedy role and Kunchacko has done a brilliant job. Another highlight of the movie is that S Kumar is cranking the camera for Lal Jose after a long interval.
The serene beauty of Kuttanad has been picturised and utilised well by the director. The place can be regarded as another highlighted tourist spot in the Malayalam cinema after Gavi, which was picturised in the movie Ordinary.
Music composed by Vidyasagar is an average one. Cinematography is incredible. Coming to the performances, all the star cast have done justice to their roles.

Kunchacko Boban is seen playing a very different role in this film. He has got even a new look in this movie. He has done complete justice to his role as Chakka Gopan.
Namitha's performance in this movie proves that she is well-suited to do even comedy roles. Her onscreen chemistry with Kunchacko Boban has worked out well in the movie.
Pullipulikalum Aattinkuttiyum is another comedy flick from the director Lal Jose. This movie can be rated better than his earlier flick Elsamma Enna Aankutty.
The Kuttanad beauty has been beautifully picturised by the cinematographer. Hats off to him for his incredible work.
The movie has a huge star cast including Kunchacko Boban, Namitha Pramod, Irshad, Shammi Thilakan, Joju, Shiju, Suraj Venjaranmmoodu, Harisree Ashokan, KPAC Lalitha, Bindu Panicker, Reena Basheer, Thesni Khan, Seema G Nair, etc.
All actors have done complete justice to their roles. Comedy performances done by Suraj, Joju, Shiju and Irshad are commendable.
Kunchacko's new look has suited well for his character and it is main highlight in the film. The Pullipuli brothers are also commendable. Nice comedy without any cliche. Good direction by Lal Jose.
There was a lack of flow in script at times. Story line seemed like a thin wafer strip. Music is not up to the expectation.
A watchable comedy-family entertainer. One who loves nature will surely love this movie.
