Call it the height of impudence. TV anchor turned actor, scenarist and director Govindankutty Adoor's 3 Char Sau Bees is in simple words, an insult to the viewer, nothing less. It is perhaps a pointer on your tastes and how much you enjoy the film could give you an idea about how low your concept of entertainment is!

Selvan (Govindankutty), Rahul (Rahul) and Zulfi (Anu) are pals living in a huge house and sleeping in the same bed. The three are classmates in an engineering college and to live in style, they become thieves! From fooling hapless strangers at the ATMs to robbing the safe from the cabin of the college-owner, they start making a fortune quite soon.

Their classmate Indu (Dhanya Mary) has some clues about the antics of the gang. But all that doesn't deter the three from vying for more. But as you would have expected by now, they soon become part of a muddle.

The main problem with this film is that there is no credible storyline, which is worthy enough to be made into a film. The director has just tried to make a hodgepodge of silly scenes with full of corny, suggestive dialogues that can only make you irritated, though the intention is to make you laugh.

With no definite aim or strategy, the story moves along almost in a boring and even in an offensive way. The visuals by Bijoys and the music by Jassie Gift are perhaps in sync with the mood of the film. Editor Don Max could have saved the burden for the viewers by chopping off the unnecessary scenes, which he never does!

Perhaps that would have meant that the whole print of the film being thrown into a dustbin. With embarrassingly suggestive lines and a flimsy premise, even a review on the film gives the respect that this film actually doesn't merit.

Forget the newcomers, who perhaps are looking for a chance to see themselves on screen but how did the makers of this film convince experienced actors like Jagathy Sreekumar, Kalabhavan Mani, Salim Kumar, Suraj Venjarammood and Sukumari, to be part of this farcical exercise?

3 Char Sau Bees could easily find its place among the worst specimens produced for the screen in Malayalam, during recent times. It is an alarming situation if any rubbish script can be made into a film and then it is branded as an entertainer.

Verdict: Avoid
