Thattathin Marayathu, written and directed by Vineeth Sreenivasan is a fresh and innocent musical love story, but lacks depth to take it far. The story will no doubt leave you smiling with its pure innocence, thanks to its stylish narration. Thattathin Marayathu is interesting in the first half, but gets very predictable in the second half. The director clearly seems confused as to what he wants to communicate. Melodramatic situations and cliched script will not disappoint the audience as it is a simple love story to be enjoyed without much thought!
Certain situation and events tend to defy logic, but overall (thanks to the outstanding visuals by Jomon T John and music by Shaan Rahman) Thattathin Marayathu is an enjoyable film.
The story of Thattathin Marayathu is set in a small town in Thalassery, where Vinod (Nivin Pauly), an average student from a middle class Hindu family falls head over heels in love with a beautiful girl named Aisha (Isha Talwar), hailing from a wealthy and influential Muslim family.
Vinod is so smitten by the beauty of this charming young girl that he along with his friends try everything within their means to grab her attention. She too reciprocates his love. What happens next is what the story is all about.
Nivin Pauly manages to create an imact with his handsome and young look. The actor seems absolutely at ease in front of the camera and is confidence personified! Debutante Isha Talwar looks great and acts well too. Aju Varghese as Nivin's friend is outstanding. It is easy to identify with him. The rest of the cast has also performed well.
If you enjoy reading simple Mills and Boons kind of romantic love stories, you might just like Thattathin Marayathu. Go for it!
