Malayalam Movie Review - Punyalan Agarbattis (Rating 3.5/5 Star)

 Jayasurya as Joy Thakkolkaran made the movie!!!


I will start of with the disclaimer that I am a fan of Jayasurya and many of his films.  I feel he is one of the actors in Malayalam that is a bridge between new and old generations (Similar to Kunchacko Boaban).  All that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Joy Thakkolkaran (Jayasurya) & Punyalan Agarbattis.  The movie was an enjoyable few hours of laughter put on top of a story line that touches on some social issues present in Kerala.

While the mold of the movie may not be very original the cast and the screen play gives it life.  The pairing off Jayasurya with Aju Vargese is perfect.  You add in Thuthuru AKA Sreejith Ravi and Rachana Narayanankutty, it makes for a lot of laughter.  What puts it all over the top is the accent, it makes the dialogues in every seen fun to listen to.  (On a side note, Sreejith Ravi's father, the veteran TG Ravi along with Mala Aravindan have small roles in the film)

All in all I would recommend this movie, if you are in the mood to watch a pure Malayalam comedy with a "lil" extra.

P.S. Check out the song that Jayasurya sang for the movie as well.
