Biju Menon has found his niche!!!


Vellimoonga - Biju Menon as Mamachan
In the past few years, there has been a real transformation for Biju Menons roles in Malayalam movies.  He has had some real success in comedy.  The pairing of Kunchacko Boban and Biju Menon has put out a few enjoyable movies recently (The best being Ordinary).  I believe Vellimoonga is the first move in which Biju Menon is single handily contributing to making the movie a hit.  While the movie has a great lineup of cast members delivering memorable performances, Biju Menon brings it all together with his delivery Mamachan.

Vellimoonga is a lighthearted flick with plenty of comedy from a
Vellimoonga - Biju Menon and Nikki Galraniwide range of characters that fit in well.  The fact that Mamachan (Biju Menon), a bachelor north of 40 years of age, is a pseudo politician adds a lot of comedic flare to the movie.  To add to that, he falls for Lina, played by Nikki Galrani, who is the daughter of Mamachan's old classmate.  Yes, this also brings in plenty of comedy.

Vellimoonga - Aju Varghese as AntonyAju Varghese has a key role in the film as Antony who is Mamachan's side kick.  Aju is probably one of the best comedic supporting actors in Malayalam film currently.  I am a big fan.

Vellimoonga is definitely a movie that you should watch if you enjoy classic Malayalam Comedy films!!!
