Jayaram, Suresh Gopi, Miya
The?question?is,?what?prompts?these?veterans?(which?includes?the?film`s?ageing?heroes, Jayaram?and?Suresh?Gopi)?to?come?up?with?this?film??It?should?be?hefty?pay?packets?for sure and ?there?have?been?reports?in?the?media?confirming?this?as?well.
The?story?by?Shyju?Anthikkad?is?plain?ridiculous,?to?say?the?least.?Sethu,?who?has?written the?screenplay?and?dialogues,?has?added?lots?of?spicy?lines,?perhaps?to?make?it?fit?for?the ?new- gen??viewers?as?well.
Sreekumar?(Jayaram)?is?living?in?a?high?range?village?and?totally?busy?doing?all?the household?chores?on?a?regular?basis,?which?includes?cleaning?up?the?house,?cooking, washing?clothes,?dropping?the?daughter?at?the?bus?stop?and?so?on.?His?wife?Suja?aka Leena?(Miya)?is?working?in?a?nearby?bank. ?
The?entire?first?half?is?devoted?to?this?exercise?and?some?buffooneries?that?is?meant?to make?the?viewers?laugh,?like?a?few?girls?coming?for?tuition?to?learn?cooking?and?a?drunken sequence?at?a?wealthy?friend`s?place.
Not?to?forget?the?surprise?appearances?of?Tomy?Eapen?Devassy?(Suresh?Gopi),?which upsets?Sreekumar.?He?is?irked?by?Tomy`s?presence?and?things?go?horribly?wrong?for?the couple?after?Suja?spends?a?whole?day?with?Tomy,?after?bunking?office.
Now?we?have?to?wait?to?know?who?this?Tomy?is?and?why?is?it?that?Sreekumar?hates?him?so much.?And?the?explanation?should?get?the?prize?for?the?most?absurd?plot?that?has?come?in films,?during?recent?years.?The?whole?story?lacks?any?logic?and?blunders?that?are?being shown?with?great?importance?can?make?you?puke!
No?point?in?mincing?words,?this?film?is?an?insult?to?the?viewers.?The?industry?should seriously?discuss?the harm that films?like these?are doing,?mainly?to the producers?and not to?forget?to the hapless?viewers.?When lots of talented?filmmakers?find it difficult?to come out?with?a?film,?how?can?a?few?get?away?with?a?crap?movie?like?this?one?
Jayaram?does?what?he?has?been?doing?all?along,?that?is?to?repeat?his??mimicry?style??as usual?and?if?his?antics?on?screen?are?not?enough,?he?croons?a?song,?where?he?sounds?to be?on?the?verge?of?crying.?Suresh?Gopi?tries?to?repeat?his?Commissoner?and?Lelam?acts once?again,?but?less?effectively.?Miya?tries?hard?but?there?is?nothing?much?to?prove?her talents?here.
Now,?though?we?don`t?want?to?add?any?spoilers,?you?can?join?the?Indian?Army?and?come out?of?it,?just?like?that??The?strategic?aspects?have?been?shown?without?any?research?or knowledge?and?most?of?the?scenes?are?unintentionally?funny.?Can?someone?please explain?why?one?should?go?to?the?hilly?terrain?near?the?border?to?develop?some?software programmes?to?combat?the?enemy?
But?then,?Salaam?Kashmir?is?not?meant?to?be?taken?seriously.?Even?those?newsreels?that are?shown?at?the?beginning?of?the?films?would?be?found?more?enjoyable?than?this?idiotic misadventure!?Stay?away?from?this?one,?please.
