Keshu's sisters and their husbands trouble him for their share in their property.

However, he receives a piece of good news that could change his fortune during the trip.
Script & Direction
Director Nadrishah has presented a simple family entertainer with an ample dose of humour, with this Dileep starrer. Sajeev Pazhoor, the National award-winning writer has attempted the comedy genre for the first time with Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan, which emerges as a fun watch for most of its parts. However, the writer-director duo has stuck to the old-school way of storytelling, that might not appeal to the audiences who have upgraded themselves.
Nadirshah takes a totally different turn with Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan and has made a film that majorly relies on situational humour. The dialogues in the movie are crisp and effective, and there are quite a lot of one-liners that make us chuckle. But, Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan struggles to take things forward towards the second half with a string of half-baked scenes, which doesn't land well. However, this Dileep starrer will impress the family audiences, who prefer a simple entertainer to watch this New Year.
Dileep has played the titular character Keshu effectively, and once again proves his expertise in handling both the humour and makeovers. However, the actor tends to get overboard with the mannerisms of a 60-plus man at parts. Urvashi, who plays Rathnam is the show stealer of Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan. The veteran actress has outshined all her co-stars with her amazing comic timing and one-liners.
The rest of the star cast, including Naslen K Gafoor, Harisree Ashokan, Kalabhavan Shahjohn, Kottayam Nazeer, Valsala Menon, Jaffer Idukki, Seema G Nair, Swasika, Priyanka, and others are good in their respective roles.
Cinematographer Anil Nair's colourful frames and Sajan's editing makes Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan an almost smooth watch. The music score composed by Nadirshah is suitable for the mood of this Dileep starrer.
Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan is the complete entertainer that possesses a charm that appeals to family audiences. The humour and performances make this Dileep starrer a pretty enjoyable watch, despite its flaws.
