The flick revolves mainly around two characters played by Dileep and Mamta Mohandas and their character names in the film was Ullas and Laya. Ullas is a guy who sees only profit in every aspect of life. As a part of that he marries a girl named laya who is a Malayali girl settled in Canada.

Shafi- Dileep association as we said above had a great box office record before and when they unites the expectation is surely for another great fun ride. And the film Two countries had succeeded in providing that fun in this Christmas season.
The film has nothing new to offer but never makes you bored ir yawn inside the theater. Many comic situations in the film had generated great response from the audience and it is a film that depended heavily on the performance of its lead actors. Dileep had really done a great job and once again showed as that when it comes to comedy he is one among the best in Mollywood. The screenplay by Rafi is also good but not anyway close to his and his partner’s classic comedies that came to us years ago. But still the first half of the film was superbly hilarious. Second half went really into the story and was thoroughly enjoying as well. Even though the climax is simple, it was sweet as well.
Mamta Mohandas, Suraj Venjaranmood, Aju Varghese, Vijaya Raghavan, Mukesh, Lena etc were superb as well. Gopi Sundar’s music was just average but most of them are entertaining songs with its colorful picturing. DOP by Santhana Krishnan was also good and the visuals from Canada was very well taken. Two Countries definitely is a complete entertainer for you in this Christmas season and Dileep -Shafi team is back with a bang this time.
