Script & Direction
John Manthrickal, the script writer has made a great debut with Janamaithri, which is a total fun ride. The director has succeeded in making an excellent comedy entertainer, which can be enjoyed by the audiences of all age groups. Director John has also co-written the movie along with James Sebastian, and the writer duo has made sure that the fun-filled narrative revolves around a solid plot.
The characters are neatly developed and the casting is absolutely on point. Director John has made complete use of the exceptional actors in the star cast. But the movie doesn't give much space to the female characters, which is disappointing. However, it is truly delightful to watch a well-scripted comedy film, which does not rely on vulgar jokes, after ages.
Saiju Kurup, who plays Samyukthan, and Indrans, who appears as SI Shibu, once again remind that they are two of the most under-rated actors of Malayalam cinema, with their exceptional performances and comic timing. Both actors totally deserve more attention from film-makers and audiences.
The rest of the star cast, including Sabumon, Vijay Babu, Irshad, Manikandan Pattambi, Sruthi Jayan, have played their respective roles to near perfection.
Vishnu Narayanan's excellent visuals make this fun-filled entertainer a complete visual treat. Lijo Paul, the editor has done a great job by making the movie a completely engaging watch.
Shaan Rahman, the talented musician scores once again with his amazing background score. The lively, comical background score adds the perfect mood to Janamaithri, and makes it more enjoyable.
Janamaithri is a complete laugh riot, which will surely cater to the audiences of all age groups. Don't miss this one.
