Welcome To Central Jail is the Dileep starring comical entertainer, directed by Sundar Das. The movie, which stars Vedhika in the female lead, is produced by Vyshakh Rajan for Vaishakha Cynyma.
Welcome To Central Jail Story
Unnikuttan (Dileep) is a young man, who was born in the central jail. He considers jail as his second home, and has a habit of taking the punishments for the crimes done by others, to be in the jail.
He meets a girl named Radhika (Vedhika), when he comes out of the jail and immediately falls in love with her. Unnikuttan also manages to save from a killer once. What happen in Unni and Radhika's life forms the crux of the story.
Dileep is in his ususal best as Unnikuttan. The actor's energetic performance and comical timing will surely be a complete treat for the fans, who love to watch him in such roles.
Vedhika delivers a decent performance as Radhika and looks gorgeous onscreen, eventhough her minimal character doesn't provide her much scope to perform.
The rest of the star cast, including Siddique, Renji Panicker, Suraj Venjarammodu, Aju Varghese, Kalabhavan Shahjohn, Sharafudeen, Kochu Preman, Pradeep Kottayam, Vinaya Prasad etc. are wasted in unimportant roles.
Script & Direction
Sundar Das, the director who is well-known for his comical flicks, makes a comeback with the movie. But the film-maker couldn't recreate his old magic, with Benny P Nayarambalam's shallow screenplay, which has nothing new to offer.
For the film fanatics who love Dileep for his classic comedy movies, the mindless, immature comical situations in this movie will turn out as a huge disappointment. But it is surely enough to satsify the die-hard fans of the actor.
Azhagappan, the director of photography scores with his decent visualisation. John Kutty's effective editing has saved the movie from fallin in to the slow pace.
The songs, composed by Berny-Ignatius duo and Nadhirsha, fails to make a mark and are easily forgettable. The background score is just okay.
Strictly for the die-hard Dileep fans. It is not another My Boss or Two Countries.
