    Adaminte Makan Abu - Movie Review


    As a travel consultant, Salim Ahamed watched hundreds of people passing by his desk. Now, he has brought one traveler's realistic story to the screen through the movie Adaminte Makan Abu. The story is simple and interesting. Although his lead characters are ugly, yet they are very appealing.

    Adaminte Makan Abu is a family drama and Salim Kumar's excellent performance remains as the major attraction of the movie. Salim Ahamed has painted the sorrow and suffering of an elderly Muslim couple, who struggle to find money to fulfill their dream of going on pilgrimage to Haj.

    Abu (Salim Kumar) goes about collecting money for his pilgrimage with his wife Aishumma"s (Zarina Wahab). He sells Unani medicines and athar that nobody wants. How he makes an humble and honest attempt to collect money for his Huj trip will form the crux of the movie.

    The specialty of the film is that it has very little space for negativity or negative characters. Salim Kumar, who is known for his comedy, has appeared in a serious getup in Adaminte Makan Abu. He has delivered wonderful performance, which truly deserves the National award. Zarina Wahab, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Nedumudi Venu and Sasi Kalinga have also done justice to their respective roles.

    Ramesh Narayan composed songs are good and Isaac Thomas and Kottukapally's background score surely heightens the effect of the story. Madhu Ambat has captured some of the shots in a very beautiful and convincing way. Vijay Shankar's editing work is also commendable.

    Overall, director Salim Ahamed, who has penned story and screenplay, has created a masterpiece out of a simple story. His movie Adaminte Makan Abu is quiet engaging and entertaining, which truly deserves the National award. It is really worth watching.
