Script & Direction
Well, the biggest problem with Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum is its consistency problem. Y V Rajesh could have worked a bit more on the scripting department to make the storyline look a bit more convincing. Boban Samuel hasn't delivered his best, much was expected from the person who packaged a quality entertainer in the form of Romans.
The first half of the film did lag at certain portions, with some of the comedy sequences falling flat. The interval punch was indeed a promising one. In fact, the second half had some great entertaining moments and the writer and director did promise of some thrilling twists and turns.
Having said that, the film definitely has some moments to cherish. The movie spoof scenes would surely set you for an entertainement ride. The second half of the film has both Jayasurya and Kunchacko Boban in full form, which is sure to entertain you up to some extent.
All the lead actors have given a convincing performance in the film. Jayasurya scores high with his impeccable comic timing. Kunchacko Boban was fine as Pranav. Amala Paul looked gorgeous and delivered a decent performance. Aju Varghese didn't get those cheesy lines like in his previous films, still, he was decent with his performance.
Suraj Venjaramoodu was at his reinvented best and in fact it is sequences involving him that kept the first half lively. Rest of the star cast comprising of Vijayaraghavan, Vinayaprasad, Lena etc didn't have much to do. Special mention to Rafi, who is definitely growing as an actor.
Songs & BGM
Chithiramuthe and Madhurikkum Ormakale are the two notable songs in the film and both the songs did serve their purpose. BGM by Gopi Sunder was decent.
Cinematography & Editing
Anishlal R S has done a decent job with the camera. Lijo Paul could have been a bit more careful in the editing department and could have kept the run time under check.
