The central characters being Mannar Mathai (Innocent), Gopalakrishnan (Mukesh) and Balakrishnan (Sai Kumar), the three are now running Urvashi Tours and Travels, done with the drama troupe and problems occurred. Mannar Mathai still has the passion towards drama and he hopes to do a play on their 25th anniversary of the troupe. Gopalakrishnan and Balakrishnan on the other extreme crticises Mathai much for his drama passion.
One day when they require a driver, who is fluent in English
languages for their foreign clients, Mathai gives a wanted ad in
newspaper asking for a driver and a female lead for their latest
drama. Unni (Basil) comes to their life as the driver and Nithya
(Aparna Gopinath) as the artist. Things go all well till they
confronts Mahendra Varma (Biju Menon), their old rival whom they
had thought to be dead.
What follows is a laughter sprinkled journey of how MA Go BA's
life gets to worse situations with the entry of some more
characters which holds the thrilling elements of the movie.
Innocent as Mannar Mathai and Mukesh as Gopalakrishnan have tried their best to reach the energy level maintained by the characters in the prequels and have near succeeded in the same. Sai Kumar as Balakrishnan feels a bit tired in his role and has less to perform. Aparna Gopinath as Nithya is not much impressive in her character as the character provides less space for her to shine through.
Biju Menon as Mahendra Varma has done a wonderful job and can be
termed as the saving grace of the movie. Shammi Thilakan as Koshi,
Vijeesh as Manjulan scores well with their comedy numbers. Other
characters including Vijayaraghavan (RamjiRao), Janardhanan
(Garvasees Ashan), Indrans (Ponnappan), Kalabhavan Shajon (SI
Babumon) and Basil (Unni) have done justice to their roles.
Music by Rahul Raj is impressive with the BGM, but stays average in the songs.
Cinematography by Vishnu Narayan has moments of charm and holds
well to the decent works in the previous flicks he had worked
Mamas, though had done a honest effort to portray some
characters which are glued to the minds of Malayalam film lovers,
has got much to improve in scripting. Dialogues, while most of them
are well received with laughter, some of them fells flat.
On the whole, Mannar Mathai Speaking 2 deserves an
average rating for the effort the director did to make a sequel
without doing much harm to the well remembered characters, even
though the movie lacks the charm of its prequels.
Sit, laugh and leave the theatre with a blank mind.
