+ve : Story .
-ve : Direction , songs , acting.
My views in detail :
The three men are trying to set their foothold in the first half of the movie.Each of them has come to Kochi,due to some problem in their life.
Unni Mukundan as Sidharth is supposed to be a carefree young man.But Unni mukundan tries hard to portray Sid onscreen,his dialogue delivery is very bad.I liked his caveman look,but he lacked the confidence to carry it.
Asif Ali as Ashiq is a struggling actor,who has the fashion sense of the 80’s.He is good compared to Unni Mukundan,however fails to evoke emotions,esp the scene where he breaks in to Director Manoj(Mukesh) house and tries to explain his dilemma and situation.However,he is convincing as a simpleton.
Vinay as Vijay is the mature of the lot,who has a secret buried in his chest,which causes him to have mood swings.He is watchable,however his dialogue delivery is very bad.
Nedumudi Venu as Scobo Jones,is an elderly character,who becomes friends with the boys.He guides the boys without coming across as over preachy.He is the saving grace of Avarude raavukal.
Honey Rose as Shivani does a miniature role of Mamta Mohandas in ‘my boss’.A lady boss falling in love with her subordinate is turning out to be stereotypical in movies now.Such cases hardly happen in the corporate world.
I thought avarude raavukal was a movie about friendship,however there is little about the rapport between the boys,that is shown onscreen.
The songs are not too great and the bgm irritates.There is hardly any humour.The dubbing is also bad,the boys are seen humming,hissing and purring in many scenes.
All the three characters in this movie are definitely relatable,the concept of avarude raavukal is good,however it is very badly executed.True,this movie has released after a lot many hurdles,this is unwatchable though.
I would suggest you to skip this badly executed movie.
