The films revolves around three main characters named Jiya,
Pranav and Prince. Jiya (Amala Paul), is a young girl, who meets
with an accident, which affects her memory of the past few years.
Pranav (Kunchacko Boban) is a high profile businessman whereas
Prince (Jayasurya) is a local goon. Both the men come in to the
scene, claiming to be the lover of Jiya and what happens rest forms
the crust of the story.
Script & Direction
Well, the biggest problem with Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum
is its consistency problem. Y V Rajesh could have worked a bit more
on the scripting department to make the storyline look a bit more
convincing. Boban Samuel hasn't delivered his best, much was
expected from the person who packaged a quality entertainer in the
form of Romans.
The first half of the film did lag at certain portions, with
some of the comedy sequences falling flat. The interval punch was
indeed a promising one. In fact, the second half had some great
entertaining moments and the writer and director did promise of
some thrilling twists and turns.
Having said that, the film definitely has some moments to
cherish. The movie spoof scenes would surely set you for an
entertainement ride. The second half of the film has both Jayasurya
and Kunchacko Boban in full form, which is sure to entertain you up
to some extent.
All the lead actors have given a convincing performance in the
film. Jayasurya scores high with his impeccable comic timing.
Kunchacko Boban was fine as Pranav. Amala Paul looked gorgeous and
delivered a decent performance. Aju Varghese didn't get those
cheesy lines like in his previous films, still, he was decent with
Suraj Venjaramoodu was at his reinvented best and in fact it is
sequences involving him that kept the first half lively. Rest of
the star cast comprising of Vijayaraghavan, Vinayaprasad, Lena etc
didn't have much to do. Special mention to Rafi, who is definitely
growing as an actor.
Songs & BGM
Chithiramuthe and Madhurikkum Ormakale are the
two notable songs in the film and both the songs did serve their
purpose. BGM by Gopi Sunder was decent.
Cinematography & Editing
Anishlal R S has done a decent job with the camera. Lijo Paul
could have been a bit more careful in the editing department and
could have kept the run time under check.
Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum, is a film which would
entertain you at parts. The film did have a promising plot but
falters in between. But still, if you can forgive the logical
mistakes and if your idea of entertainment means some good laughs,
Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum might turn out to be a one-time
