Jaison (Mathew Thomas) is a higher secondary student, who initially gets admitted to the Humanities stream. But, he later switches to the Science batch and falls in love with his new classmate, Keerthi. He is annoyed with Keerthi's admiration for their new Malayalam teacher Ravi Padmanabhan aka Ravi sir (Vineeth Sreenivasan). How Jaison wins Keerthy's love forms the crux of the story.
Script & Direction
Director Girish AD has made a fabulous debut with Thanneer Mathan Dinangal, which is a well-crafted film in all senses. The director himself has scripted the movie along with Dinoy Paulose. The writer duo has successfully created a totally realistic yet relatable teenage story, with the right elements of romance and humour. The simple, meaningful dialogues deserve a special mention.
The incidents which happen in a higher secondary school are narrated beautifully, without the overdose of drama. All the characters are neatly written and introduced wonderfully. The songs are well-placed. Even though the narrative looked a little stretched in the second half, all those little shortcomings were compensated by the well-crafted climax.
Mathew Thomas, the Kumbalangi Nights fame actor who plays Jaison, delivers an exceptional performance. The actor steals the show with his matured acting skills and charming screen presence. He is definitely here to stay. Vineeth Sreenivasan, who appears as Ravi Sir, has portrayed his character to near perfection.
Anaswara Rajan, the Udaharanam Sujatha fame actress who plays the role of Keerthi, is instantly likeable. Her combination scenes with Mathew Thomas is a treat to watch. The rest of the star cast, including Shabareesh Varma, Nisha Sarang, Irshad, Sri Ranjini, etc., are good in their respective roles.
The excellent cinematography by Jomon T John and Vinod Illampilly has made Thanneer Mathan Dinangal a complete visual treat. Shameer Muhammed's editing is totally on point.
The songs, which are composed by Justin Varghese have already emerged as the chartbusters of the seasons. The excellent background score has added the perfect mood to the full-filled entertainer.
Thanneer Mathan Dinangal will thoroughly entertain the audiences who still cherish their school days. This feel-good entertainer is absolutely a must watch!
