You need a pen and paper while watching director B Unnikrishnan's I Love Me. The film has so many twists in the tale that could confuse you on who's with whom and who is pitted against the other, at a particular point of time. Also, that is the easiest way to keep yourself away from dozing off, while watching this horrible movie.

Savy (Unni Mukundan) is a local goonda while Prem (Asif Ali) is a small time fraud and the two live in Kochi. When the cops nab them under some minor charges, a suave Bangkok based businessman named Ram Mohan (Anoop Menon) bails them out. Now, he wants the two to join him and do some 'assignment' for him and the offer is a fat paycheck.

Once they reach Bangkok, a svelte gal named Samantha (Isha Talwar of Thattathin Marayathu fame) joins them in the mission. Now begins a game of 'who beats whom' in crime and romance.

With slow motion sequences, close ups, never ending dialogues and song n dance routine, the film is a thriller, which is barely thrilling. The script by Sethu is never really engaging and the visuals by Satheesh Kurup are at times out of focus. Deepak Dev's songs are too loud and the background score is plain irritating.

The less said about the performances, the better. Anoop Menon tries to look stylish but with a hollow script, his efforts have a limited impact. Unni Mukundan looks wooden as always and Asif Ali and Isha Talwar have limited talent as actors. Biju Pappan's antics as a comedian fall flat.

I Love Me is a terribly flawed film, in every way. It's a pity that Unnikrishnan came up with this one after a decent film like Grandmaster!

Verdict: Below Average
