Aadu-2 review:It’s easily the finest comedy of the year. Go for it!

Director

Midhun Manuel Thomas

Star Cast

Jayasurya, Vinayakan, Vijay Babu

The 2015 comedy Aadu Oru Bheekara Jeeviyanu got only an average response at the theatres but went on to become a rage later on, when it’s DVD came out. It’s sequel, Aadu 2, brings back the characters some of whom have become icons of sorts and presents the story as a quirky, caricature like comedy. And it works, big time.

The situations and the nature of the characters are all pretty much the same. Shaji Pappan (Jayasurya), the likeable captain of Winners Pothumukku, lives for his team members even though he suffers from that old back pain and cash crunch.

Then there are the rest, underworld don Dude (Vinayakan), Sub Inspector Sharbat Shameer (Vijay Babu), minister P P Sasi (Indrans), the fiery Arackal Abu (Saiju Kurup) and so on.

The rather thin storyline is mainly based on confusions, funny one liners and some interesting mentions about the recent social and political issues.

Midhun Manuel Thomas has smartly taken the best out of the earlier episode and stitched them together as a delightful comedy. The visuals by Vishnu Narayanan and the music by Shaan Rahman are top notch.

Of course, It’s Shaji Pappan, who is the life of this story. Jayasurya presents his character with absolute dedication. Pappan is more stylish this time with double shaded mundu and his mandatory black shirts, the thick arched moustache and dark shades. He is fearless as usual, well at least mostly, and has a heart of gold.

Vinayakan’s ‘Dude’ is going through a tough time on his return trip, but needless to add, he is terrific with his impeccable comic timing and smart lines.

The rest of the cast have done their parts quite impressively.

Aadu 2 packs in so much laughter and is a fun ride, especially if you are aware about the nature of the characters from the first part. It’s easily the finest comedy of the year. Go for it!
