      Bro Daddy Movie Review: This Mohanlal-Prithviraj Sukumaran Film Is A Hilarious Tale Of Parenthood | Bro Daddy Review | Bro Daddy Review And Rating

      Script & Direction

      Prithviraj Sukumaran, the actor-filmmaker has delivered a hilarious tale of parenthood with his second outing as a director. Bro Daddy is a fun film that explores the different phases of fatherhood (and reminds us of yesteryear film Pavithram and Mohanlal's character Chettachan for obvious reasons). The biggest strength of this film is its first half and the way it establishes the central characters and premise.

      Sreejith N and Bipin Maliekal, the writers have done a good job with the humour in the first half, thus succeeding in keeping the viewers totally engaged. The funny twists and entertaining family dynamics are thoroughly enjoyable. However, the film loses its grip towards the second half, especially with the comedy falling flat and the narrative getting stretched. Bro Daddy will definitely impress the viewers who expect a simple family entertainer with an ample dose of humour, to watch with family and friends. This is definitely not a film that is made to satisfy the intellectuals.

      Performances

      Mohanlal once again proves his expertise in handling humour with the character John Kattadi and steals the show with his performance. Prithviraj Sukumaran sheds his serious image for the character Eesho John Kattadi and has done a decent job. Mohanlal and Prithviraj's amazing camaraderie in Bro Daddy is definitely is the biggest plus point of Bro Daddy.

      Meena once again impresses with her charming screen presence and amazing chemistry with Mohanlal. Kalyani Priyadarshan, on the other hand, proves she is one of the most reliable leading ladies we have in the industry right now, especially when it comes to handling humour.

      However, it is Lalu Alex who totally outshined his co-stars with his amazing performance in both the humourous and emotional sequences. Soubin Shahir's performance was not up to the mark. The rest of the star cast, including Kaniha, Jagadish, Mallika Sukumaran, Charle, Jaffar Idukky, Unni Mukundan, Kavya Shetty, Sijoy Varghese, and others are good in their respective roles.

      Technical Aspects

      Abhinandan Ramanujam's excellent cinematography makes Bro Daddy a stunning watch. Akhilesh Mohan's editing is just fine. Deepak Dev's songs and good, and the musician has also done a decent job with the background score. The title animations deserve a special mention.

      Verdict

      Bro Daddy is a hilarious tale of parenthood that succeeds in entertaining for most of its parts. This Prithviraj Sukumaran directorial is not a flawless film, but the performances of Mohanlal and the rest of the cast make it the perfect choice for a fun watch.
