When the flick named Ordinary came in the year 2012 there was not anticipation about the film as it is directed by a newcomer named Sugeeth and the Kuchacko Boban- Biju Menon combination was not hailed as a success pair at that time. But upsetting all that Ordinary had become an Extraordinary hit of that year and that one film itself gave the pair of Kunchacko Boban and Biju Menon the status of a super hit combination in Mollywood and they repeated that success in some of the films that came after as well.
Now another film has came today named Madhura Naranga and the same team that made Ordinary an extra ordinary success is behind this flick as well. Directed by Sugeeth and scripted by Nishad Koya and starring the above mentioned success combo of Kunchacko Boban and Biju Menon. Attraction of the film also increases that this movie had the new acting talent in mollywood, Neeraj Madhav and also one debutant named Parvathy Ratheesh, the daughter of Late actor Ratheesh playing the female lead. The financers are M.K Nassar and Stanley C.S under the banner named Goodline productions.
The story of the flick revolves around the lives of 4 charcters name Jeevan (Kunchacko Boban), Salim (Biju Menon), Kumar (Neeraj Madhav) and Thamara (Parvathy Ratheesh). The story is set in the background of Gulf countries and Sri Lanka and Parvathy is playing the role of a Srilankan Tamil girl. The story picks up when thamara comes into the lives of jeevan, Salim and Kumar accidentally and later falls in love with Jeevan. She is been followed by Sharjah police and had to live hiding away from their eyes. The film portrays the life of Jeevan and Thamara to live together when the fate makes them apart through various plots.
The film is a love story which has enough humour and sentimental moments to make the spectators glued to their seats. The performance of Pavathy Ratheesh has been superb as Thamara and she never gave the feel that she is a newcomer to the industry. Kunchabo Boban-Biju Menon-Neeraj Madhav combination had worked out well and Biju Menon stole the show at many moments. One of the negative of the film is its length as at some point the film lags a bit but not to the extent of making people bore to death. The music by Sreejith Sachin is average but not disappointing. But a romantic film needs a great melody or romantic song which can melt the mind of the audience and that is somewhat lacking in it. The camera work by Faisal Ali is good and it gives the much needed atmosphere right for the flick.
Sugeeth had once again showed great control over the narrative and his skills really managed to hold the plot together. Nishad Koya’s screenplay also gave much strength to the plot even though they can cut off some unwanted scenes to shorten the length as it could have given much more pace to the flick. It has been an above average affair when it comes to the totality. The thing is that if you don’t compare it with their super success Ordinary or watch this without expecting an Ordinary then it will surely entertain you and it can be a film for the families as well in this season.
