Rajamma @ Yahoo Story
Michael Rajamma (Kunchacko Boban) and Vishnu Yohannnan aka Yahoo (Asif Ali) are two brothers who live a carefree life. They are born to the inter-caste couple Yohannan and Rajamma, who fell in love during their college days.
After the demise of their parents, Michael and Yahoo are staying at their ancestral property and enjoying the life to the fullest. The brothers are not interested in working and make a living by renting out a portion of their house.
Things change when a family comes to stay at their house and the following events make a huge impact in Rajamma and Yahoo's life. How the brothers deal with it, forms the rest of the plot.
Kunchacko Boban perfectly gets into the skin of the character with his exuberant screen presence. Asif Ali convincingly plays the smart, loud, Yahoo. The camaraderie between the actors acts as the saving grace of the movie.
Anusree plays her part flawlessly. Nikki Galrani is just okay in her role. It is Kalabhavan Shajohn who scores with his exceptional comical timing. The rest of the stars Mamukoya, Sethulakshmi, Parvathi, Renji Panicker etc are fine in their roles.
Script And Direction
Reghu Rama Varma, the director has made the perfect use of the great chemistry between Kunchacko Boban and Asif Ali. But sadly, that is the only positive factor about the movie. The first half was entertaining; while the second half and climax were weak and ineffective.
The forceful, half-baked comical situation turns out to be really boring. Writer Sindhuraj failed to make use of the promising theme and the scope for perfect comical situations; thus making the movie a disappointing experience.
S Kumar's cinematography makes the movie a beautiful visual experience. Ranjan Abraham's editing was not up to the standards, as the second half fell into a slow pace and the movie suddenly rushed in to the climax.
Songs And Background Score
Songs and background score are composed by the National Award winning musician Bijibal. The songs are dull and failed to make a mark. The background score is okay; but turns out to be repetitive.
We would like to suggest Bijibal to be a bit choosy in his career and cut down the number of films. Otherwise, the audience will soon get bored with the repetitive scores, which has nothing new to offer.
An average, passable flick. Watch it just for timepass.
