Georgettan's Pooram, has been bankrolled by Arun Gosh,
Bijoy Chandra and Shivanee Suraj under the banners Chand V

Georgettan's Pooram narrates the story of George
Vadakkan, who is the son of a pastor. George, who is a native of
Thrissur district spends time with his group of friends, doing
nothing special. They spend most of their time in a place called
'Mathai Ground'. But, things take a change with the arrival of
Peter. What happens rest has been conveyed in Georgettan's
Read on to know how the cast and crew members of
Georgettan's Pooram have fared for the movie..
Dileep As George Vadakkan
Dileep appears as George Vadakkan. For the first time,
the actor is trying his hands on Thrissu dialect and he pulls it
off with ease. He has maintained the dialect throughout the movie,
which is really commendable. The actor has excelled in the serious
sequences, especially in the second half and it was refreshing to
see the actor in a role, which doesn't resort to over the top
Vinay Forrt As Vava
Vinay Forrt plays the role of Vava, one among the close
friends of George. Well, the actor in him has convincingly
portrayed the role, but a talent like him could have been used by
the director in a much better way.
Sharafudheen As Pallan
Well, we all know his ability to take people for a
laughter ride. In Georgettan's Pooram, he has got the
major share of one-liners and he evokes laughter here and there,
but not on a consistent basis
Chemban Vinod Jose As Peter
Chemban Vinod Jose plays the role Peter, the character
that is quite crucial in the progress of the movie. The actor, once
again proves his brilliance in doing such kind of roles and his
screen presence is amazing.
Rajisha Vijayan As Merlin
This is Rajisha's second film as a heroine. She has made
a good transition from the loud and emotional Eli from her debut
film to the soft-spoken and silent Merlin in this one. Merlin is
the lady love of Georgettan and her character provides the
motivational elements to the hero.
Renji Panicker As Mathews Vadakkan
Renji Panikker appears as Mathew Vadakkan, the father of
George Vadakkan. This time, he gets to play the role of a father
who is critical about his son's activities and that remains the
Rest Of The Cast
The film also features actor like Harish Perumanna,
Sunil Sukhada, Sudheer Karamana, Malavika Nair, Ganapathy,
Kalaranjini and a host of other actors. Most of them were wasted in
poorly written roles.
But, T G Ravi, who plays the crucial role of
Josephettan, steals the show with his amazing act. He gets to play
a very well-written role and he portrays it with
Director - K Biju
K Biju has tried his best to package a decent product
but the script does let him down up to some extent, especially in
the first half. It seemed like the film-maker in him was a bit
clueless in the initial portions of the movie.
But, the second half of the film proves that the
film-maker has the ability to craft good entertainers. he has done
his best to make the second half of the film appealing and
engaging. especially, the Kabaddi sequences have been crafted
really well by the director.
Script - Y V Rajesh
Well, it has to be said that the script of the film is a
let down. In the first half, the movie moves forward without any
proper direction, which has affected the overall flow of the movie.
Many sequences looked out of context and misplaced. Y V Rajesh
displays some brilliance in the second half of the movie where he
has scored well with the dialogues, as well.
Music & BGM
Gopi Sunder's Music and BGM suit the movie pretty well. The song
'Joliyum Kooliyum Illa'.. is a real good one that and it
gels well with the movie.
Georgettan's Pooram was shot mainly in thrissur and the
cinematography of the film by Vinod Illampily suits pretty well to
the genre. Lijo Paul, who handled the editing department could have
used the knife in a better way to chop off certain scenes of the
Well, Georgettan's Pooram was expected to be a comedy
entertainer. Having someone like Dileep on board, such an
expectation is quite valid. But, there are only very few occasions
where the film offers some laughter and that is where the film
In fact, Georgettan's Pooram has a promising plot but
it has been developed without much surprises and entertaining
elements. The blame is on the first half, which is filled with
loads of clichéd elements like childhood sequences of George, love
angle of Merlin and George and cerain other unwanted sequences. Add
to it the fizzled out jokes, the film nosedives in the first half.
Even the actors are left helpless with sequences that offers
nothing to entertain.
One is kept waiting for the film to enter the main storyline and
once it enters, the film takes you for a decent entertaining ride.
The second half has some fine moments, espexillay the emotional
sequences that have worked out well. Even the Kabaddi sequences are
engaging and nail-biting ones, taking the viewers for a good ride.
And it is this second half of the movie, which saves the film from
being a complete letdown.
Georgettan's Pooram would have been a complete entertainer, had the makers taken due care of the first half of the movie. The film fails completely in the humour department and if you can sit through the boring first half, it might turn out to be a watchable one.
