Pullikkaran Staraa (2017) Review
The first half of the film had some glimpses of brilliance of the director, but as the film moved forward it seemed like he lost the control. In the initial parts he was able to hit the right chords with the comical sequences but the same consistency wasn't seen in the later portions.
Mammootty is the biggest strength of the movie. He essays the role of Raajakumaran with ease and scores heavily be it in humorous or emotional sequences. The sequences involving interaction between Raajakumaran and his students look convincing, just because of Mammootty. But, he has done such kind of roles even in the past and Raajakumaran isn't anything new for the actor in him.
Pullikkaran Staraa manages to shine at parts. There are some good moments in the film, which would bring a smile on your faces. But, the film heavily depends too much on such scattered moments and thus testing the patience of the audiences. The film is a watchable one but fails to go that extra mile.
