Malayalam Movie Review - Bavuttiyude Namathil (Rating 3.0/5 Star)

Bavuttiyude Namathil Poster

Noteworthy performances by several actors.


Bavuttiyude Namathil
Directed byG. S. Vijayan
Produced byRanjith
Written byRanjith
Kavya Madhavan
Shankar Ramakrishnan
Rima Kallingal


Bavuttiyude Namathil Cast
Not all that unique of a story, but certainly entertaining and delivers some noteworthy performances.  I would not lump this in with all the "Out of the Box" movies that have been showing up recently.  Its built from more of a typical mold of Malayalam Movie that we have come to expect. 

What set's it apart is some great performances from Mammootty (Of course), Kavya Madhavan and Shankar Ramakrishnan (Also was in the movie Spirit).  As expected from a "Ranjith" movie, it is well put together.  For the majority of the film, a lot of effort is put in making the movie feel very lighthearted and enjoyable.  There is a visual motif that is used for several scenes with Mammootty and Rima Kallingal that will bring a smile to most people.

Noteworthy Performances:


Bavuttiyude Namathil Mammootty
As expected, strong performance.  This movie, in my opinion, is not going to make the highlights of Mammootty's career, but it's worth a mention.  Very similar role to his characters in Loud Speaker and Thappana.  Simple guy doing good things.

Kavya Madhavan:

For a second year in a row, Kavya Madhavan received the award for best actress from the Asianet Film Awards.  She won it in 2012 for her role in Bavuttiyude Namathil.

I was very happy to see her role was not opposite Mammootty.  Not a huge role but she made the most of it.  

Shankar Ramakrishnan:

This dude is a natural and cast perfectly in Bavuttiyude Namathil.  Similar to his role in Spirit, it does not feel like he's acting.  Good find for Malayalam.  I hope we see him in more roles where he is more than the "Other" nice guy.
