This overrated undernourished comedy of manners with a hero who tells his girlfriend he likes alcohol with sex—to which she replies she likes sex with love—is exasperating in its circumlocutory execution of what could have been an engaging, if not engrossing, tale of a colony in a small town of Kerala trying to build a road in the congested locality.
The cement mortar and stones are all in place. The urge to make something out of the raw material is sadly undeveloped. I loved some of the eccentric characters(one of whom electrocutes a dog ) . But the overall picture that emerges from individual eccentricities is not in any way, edifying , let alone inspiring.
Perhaps this is the effect that director Ashraf Hamza aimed…
