Movie Title

Daivame Kaithozham K Kumaraakanam


Salim Kumar

Star Cast

Jayaram, Anusree, Salim Kumar

Actor Salim Kumar had landed himself in trouble with some of his comments about certain controversial issues pertaining to the Malayalam film industry, last year. His directorial venture, Daivame Kaithozham K Kumaraakanam, seems to be his way of presenting his take on some of the contemporary happenings using another medium.

So there is a hotchpotch story line with plenty of dialogues, in preachy tone, which are mostly misogynistic and targeting everyone who the makers think is on the other side. There is a sense of arrogance with which provocative lines are mixed in the narrative, plainly ignoring the hapless viewer who are there to enjoy a movie!

The storyline goes like this. Believe it or faint, God (Nedumudi Venu) and his assistant (Kottayam Pradeep) decides to visit Kerala aka God’s Own Country. They reach the house of a Village Extension Officer named Krishna Kumar (Jayaram). He always complains about the inefficiency of his wife Nirmala (Anusree) in taking care of him. The rest of the story is a long long sermon about marriage, life and the duties of a wife to her husband.

In between there is Karimannoor Gopi (Salim Kumar), a character made to mimic a real life businessman, whose escapades to seek attention is well known. But the problem is that this is yet another skit included in this absurd movie, just to tickle your funny bone, without any real connection to the plot.

There is a rather silly twist to the tale, which would make you cringe, but we won’t discuss for the sake of those who want to experience it all in the theatres.

The movie ends with a lame excuse that is expected to justify all the nonsense told until then.

You can only watch with disbelief as national award winning actor Salim Kumar fills his movie with double meaning dialogues, mocking even a dying person and presenting buffoonery in the name of comedy.

Jayaram repeats his branded acting style and so does Anusree. All that last year’s national award winning actress Surabhi Lakshmi has to do is to repeat a double meaning line whenever she appears.

Daivame Kaithozham K Kumaraakanam has evidently been made with an agenda to badmouth the rivals of a certain group of Mollywood film industry insiders, following some of the recent events. Of course, they have the right to express their point of view, but as a movie, this one is a nauseating misadventure.
