The actor has put up a convincing performance as Kavta Sivan, one such character, which he has never done in the past. Kunchacko Boban pulls off the role effectively, getting in to the skin of the character. What we get to see on screen is Kavta Shivan, throughout the movie and not Kunchacko Boban, the star.
Sidharth Bharathan smartly uses the characters at disposal and due credit must be given to him for making an engaging film, which has a thin storyline. In fact, the first half of the film moves forward with the introduction of each character and the director's firm grip over the film, is quite evident.
Verdict Varnyathil Aashanka is yet another film in the league of good entertainers, without any unwanted gimmicks.
