All these have been narrated in an entertaining form in Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan.
Read on to know how the cast & crew members of Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan have fared in the movie.
Director – Nadirshah
Nadirshah is one such person, who knows the exact pulse of the audiences and he proved that with his first directorial venture. Once again, the director has succeeded in delivering an entertaining product, much in the lines of Amar Akbar Anthony.
Vishnu Unnikrishnan As Kichu
Vishnu Unnikrishnan has convincingly portrayed the role of a movie aspirant, excluding some minor glitches here and there, especially during the emotional sequences. He excels in counter comedy sequences and special mention to his performance in the second half, where he has opted for a controlled approach.
Prayaga Martin As Ann Maria
Prayaga Martin, who is now one of the most popular actresses of Mollywood, appears as the leading lady in the film. The actress dons the role of a girl named Ann Maria, who is new to the village of Kichu. She looked extremely beautiful and has done a decent job.
Salim Kumar As Chandran
It is after a brief break that Salim Kumar is appearing in a full-length comedy role in a film. Hence, the expectations were sky high. And he has come out successful up to some extent, giving us the glimpses of vintage Salim Kumar.
Dharmajan As Dasappan
Dharmajan gets a meaty role as Dasappan, the friend of Kichu. In fact, the actor steals the show with his witty one-liners. He keeps you entertained throughout the film.
Rest Of The Cast
The film has an ensemble star cast comprising of actors like Dharmajan, Siju Wilson, Rahul Madhav, Maheshinte Prathikaram fame Lijumol, Kottayam Nazeer, Kalabhavan Shajon etc., in important roles. A special mention to Siddique, who has put up yet another impressive performance in the film.
Script - Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Bibin George
Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Bibin George have jointly scripted Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan. Well, they have followed almost the same pattern as that of Amar Akbar Anthony, while narrating the story of a movie aspirant with loads of comedies. Like in their previous venture, here also they have delivered a message towards the end of the film.
Music & BGM
The film has its songs set to tune by Nadirshah. The wedding song is hummable and is the pick among the lot. Bijibal has handled the re-recording and has done a decent job.
Renowned cinematographer Shamdatt Sainudeen has cranked the camera for the film and he has set some beautiful frames capturing the beauty of Thoduppuzha and Kattapana. Editing department has been handled by Johnkutty and has done a decent job. But, he could have kept a note on the runtime of the film.
Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan is an entertainer that serves its purpose. The film's biggest positive is the rollicking first half where the film has loads of humour content. Much like Amar Akbar Anthony, Nadirshah and team have taken the route of addressing some issues with light humour.
The storyline of the film isn't that fresh or different, but the sequences of the film and their presentation would keep you engaged throughout. The best part is the fact that the team hasn't resorted to vulgar comedies to tickle your bones. What you get is pure and unadulterated humour. Importantly, family relationships have been given due importance in the film.
Yes, on the flip side the film has some lagging moments and cliched elements in the second half, but that doesn't affect the overall entertainment factor of the product.
If want you want is pure entertainment, your ideal destination would be the theatres playing Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan. The film has a lot of moments for laughter and neat entertainment is guaranteed.
