      Cousins Movie Review: Repititive And Outdated

      Cast And Performance

      Kunchako Boban delivers a decent performance as Sam. Indrajith, who played Joji, excels with his impeccable acting skills. Suraj Venrammoodu manages to make the audience laugh. Joju George's performance is fine; but the actor looks completely mis-matched in the cousins group at certain points.

      Kalabhavan Shajohn's comical performance is just fine; but becomes annoying at certain instances. The actor definitely needs to brush up his humor sense. Vedhika and Nisha Agarwal look gorgeous and have played their parts well. Rest of the cast are fine in their respective roles.

      Story And Direction

      The repetitive story line and the not-so-engaging script by Sethu are the major negatives of the movie. Director Vysakh manages to make the movie look rich and colorful; but fails to make the narration of the plot engaging and interesting.

      Technical Aspects

      Cinematography by Shaji and the perfect art direction makes the movie look extremely rich. The movie could have been much more better if Mahesh Narayanan's editing was perfect.

      Music And Background Score

      M Jayachandran's songs are just average. Gopi Sundar's background sinks with the mood of the movie.


      A movie which attempts to narrate an outdate story line, in the shadow of visual richness.
