Movie Title

Cheriya Kallanum Valiya Police um


Haridas Kesavan

Star Cast

Mukesh, Jagadeesh, Suraj Venjarammood

If you are wondering what the title of the film actually means, well, it has no significance whatsoever with the storyline. In fact, director Haridas Kesavan's Cheriya Kallanum Valiya Policeum is such an insipid trash, with no story or script worth mentioning and the film lacks any logic or sense.

Or try figuring out the idiosyncrasy of this dialogue which appears on its posters, ?a cop doesn't need a uniform to become a thief, but a thief would require a uniform to become a cop.? Does that line make some sense? Fine, perhaps after reading lines like these you won't expect much other than some laughs from such a movie. But what if it turns out to be a stupid drama with no script, imagination and ends up as a total waste of time and energy?

You have to understand that films like Cheriya Kallanum Valiya Policeum are being made with the hefty satellite rights in mind. The more the number of known names in the cast, the more will be the price-tag. So everyone in the comic department from Suraj Venjarammood, Jagathy Sreekumar, Ponnamma Babu, Salim Kumar to Kochu Preman and Machan Varghese appear one after the other, besides of course Mukesh and Jagadeesh, often without any relevance to the situations.

It?s amazing how those who created this ridiculous plot, convinced others to be part of this film! Kumaran (Jagadeesh) writes to his wife that he is going to commit suicide, due to certain financial mishaps. Now the whole village of Pancharakkara is waiting for his body to arrive and no one has a clue where it is.

A stranger named Sadasivan (Mukesh) becomes part of the mayhem, but he turns out to be a really nice guy, really concerned about Kumaran's well being. Now, since there is nothing left to tell, the story meanders along aimlessly with buffoonery involving a cop (Suraj), tea-shop owner (Salim Kumar), a blind man (Kochu Preman), quarreling relatives (Ponnamma Babu, Mala Aravindan and so on) and the likes.

There should be some sort of a debate to decide who should be blamed for making films like these. Everyone involved with this asinine misadventure should be made to apologize for wasting two precious hours of the viewer and for looting their money. With a silly script, tacky production values and ordinary music, the film will go down in Malayalam film history as a painful experience for all those who cared to watch it.

The less said the better about the acting department. Every actor including the usually okay ones like Mukesh, Jagadeesh and Jagathy Sreekumar looks evidently disinterested in the whole proceedings. The comedians have been given a free hand to do whatever they like and all of them compete to make a mess out of it.

It may bring some profits for its producer, with the satellite rights and so on. But the harm that such films do is to wean away even the remaining section of viewers who go to the theatres to watch movies. The question is, why blame the viewers if they prefer Telugu remakes, Hollywood or Bollywood films, to these craps?

Verdict: Avoid
