The story of Anuraga Karikkin Vellam revolves mainly around four characters. Raghu, is a police officer, who lives with his wife Suma and their two children. Abhilash, who is the son of Raghu, is an architect and a representative of today's youth. Abhilash falls for a girl named Elizabeth. The film takes a close look into the relations of these two couples, and at the same time giving due importance to father-son bond.
Biju Menon appears as Raghu, a rough police officer. It is nice to see Biju Menon in such refreshing roles and he simply excels as Raghu. Asif Ali is definitely improving with each movie and he gave a good performance as Abhilash. Asha Sarath as the mother, was an apt selection. Kudos to debutante Rajisha Vijayan who simply excelled in the role of Elizabeth.
Rest of the cast comprising of actors like Soubin Shahir, Sreenath Bhasi, Sudheer Karamana, Irshad etc. have done their parts neatly.
Script & Direction
The best part of the movie is the neatly layered screenplay by Naveen Bhaskar, that carries the movie forward in a good manner. Screenplay is filled with many such situations that would make you smile.
Khalid Rahman has made a good debut as a director and he is in complete control of the movie. He has been able to deliver a quality product, overcoming the limitations of a debut director. The freshness in the presentation has helped the movie a lot.
The entertainment quotient remains intact in the film and at the same time, the film never moves away from the realistic factor. There are many such situations in the film which could be easily related by many.
Music & BGM
Big round of applause for Prashanth Pillai for providing soothing music. BGM of the film gels well with the movie, maintaining that required freshness.
Cinematography & Editing
Cinematography is by Jimshi Khalid, who is also the brother of Khalid Rahman. He has done a good job in capturing some frames that suit the movie particularly well. Editing by Noufal Abdullah is good enough and maintains the right pace.
Anuraga Karikkin Vellam, is a cute, simple movie with feel-good factor. The film is much more than a romantic story and delves deeply into importance of relationships, without going preachy. A real good watch!
