Kunchacko Boban, Biju Menon
Though the basic plot of Hong Kong director Yang Zhang?s Getting Home (2007) is similar to Johny Antony?s Bhaiyya Bhaiyya, it will be a crime even to compare the two films. While the former is a sheer delight to watch, the Kunchacko Boban ? Biju Menon comedy is a colossal bore.
?Bengali? Babu (Kunchacko Boban) is a supplier of labourers, while the other Babu (Biju Menon) is a Bengali by birth. The two have grown up together and share a bond of brotherhood that is quintessential for masala movies.
A series of events follow and actually it is a tough ask to recollect it in order, by the time the end titles start rolling. A baddie, who yells his dialogue at top volume, comes at times. Then a corrupt politician and his son, who is forced to marry a prostitute is there. The heroines and the hullabaloo that ensue don?t help things either.
After a while, all the important characters are on a trip to Kolkata.
With a script that is shaky from the word go, director Johny Antony is on a weak ground here. The film has perhaps been churned up to make use of the popularity of Kunchacko Boban and Biju Menon as a pair. But of all the things, you need a credible storyline and script to make it all engaging, right?
Kunchacko Boban sleepwalks through the role and so does Biju Menon. The latter tries in vain to come up with a new style of dialogue delivery to evoke laughs, maybe like Ordinary. Among the heroines, Nisha Aggarwal seems to have no acting bones whatsoever and Vinuda Lal makes only a limited impression.
The makers of Bhaiyya Bhaiyya have just mixed melodrama, crass comedy, song n dance routines and some action sequences, without a proper recipe. Just like what happens in cooking, they end up making a tasteless dish. Try this one at your own risk please.
Verdict: Below Average
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
