I admit I was so skeptical to watch this one…like a lot of other people I thought it would just destroy the reputation of the original and I kept telling myself that there is nothing much to actually show in continuity…but alas how wrong I was. Jeethu Joseph is nothing short of a genius!
Infact throughout the movie,you don’t for a second feel like you don’t know Georgekutty’s family and that is proof enough of the authenticity of the characters and set. The sheer painstaking difficulties they may have gone through to make sure nothing- no location,no person,no dialogue looks out of place from where they left in 2015. The surroundings, characters seem to have aged just naturally and gradually.
This movie is a writer’s baby…the story is everything… coupled with some superb experiences with the likes of Murali Gopi, Sai Kumar and Asha Sarath.
And what do we even say about Lalettan?!Unlike the first part, Georgekutty is more subtle and mature in this one…but that could be how he evolved having gone through all the ordeals in the first part. But the conviction with which Lalettan plays his part is a class apart..he is definitely an Institution of excellence.
I will keep it short and simple, this movie is creatively intelligent and so glad that Jeethu Joseph took this risk and showed the entire world of cinema…how a sequel should be made.
