the character in certain points

disappointed with his dull performance. Swathi Reddy who plays
Lailaa, is perfect in her role. The rest of the star cast includes

seems to heavily inspired by the graphic novels and gangster comedy
But, it might be hard for the normal audience to accept such a
different movie. But in short, Double Barrel can be quoted
as one of the bravest movies ever made in the history of Malayalam
Abhinandan Ramanujam's cinematography deserves a special
applause. The visualisation has acted as the soul of the film, and
has created the perfect ambiance for the narrative. Sathyaraj's
editing is upto the marks.
Praveen Varma has scored with the exceptional costumes, which
has highly supported the characterisation of the movie. Keyframes
Studios's visual effects are commendable.
Songs And Background Score
The songs and background score are composed by Prashant Pillai.
The music director has tried to bring a difference in the music.
But the songs miserably fails to impress; while the background
score is brilliant.
One of the bravest attempts in the history of Malayalam cinema;
watch it with the mindset of a kid.
