Cast : Prithviraj, Vedhika , Manju Pillai , Saikumar .
Direction : Sujith Vassudevan.
Plot : James (Prithviraj) and Alice (Vedhika) got married against their parents wishes . Trouble soon crops up after marriage. James and Alice traces their journey as a couple after marriage.
My view : What I liked about James and Alice is the execution . The story is not extraordinary, it is about a couple , whose love drains after marriage . Prithviraj as James who is energetic and chirpy before marriages turns grumpy and preoccupied as life catches on . As a result of which love loses its charm . The first half looked like Mithunam in a new generation set up to me . However it is the second half that took me by surprise. The concept though not very different has been blended and executed well . Vedika as Alice does not have many dialogues , and does most of the acting using monologues and visual expressions . Out of all the songs , I liked mazha the best . Manju Pillai as Adv Rohini plays the role of a friend of Alice , who is supportive .Meenakshi who essayed the role of pinky is cute . Sai kumar as Davis is power packed .The guest appearance by Anupama Parameswaran looks superficial and is a huge let down. Don’t go expecting humor . The movie is a serious take on life .On the whole , James and Alice is a one time watch .
Quotes that caught me :

That was my idea .
Naale entha .. Enthaa naale ?
I am Peter , nice to meet you .
I m a man of mistakes according to her , it’s all wrongs and faults .
It is one big beautiful chaos .
If you really really want it , Kai pollilla .
