Director Lal Jr.’s Driving Licence is based on a simple incident that becomes a major ego clash between a superstar and his die-hard fan, which turns ugly after a while.

Hareendran (Prithviraj) is a young superstar with a huge fan following. He is rich, successful and brash. He loves fancy cars, which he prefers to drive always and to lead a posh lifestyle.

During the shooting of a movie the crew needs his driving license to get permission to can a particular sequence. Hareendran realizes then that he has lost his license. A friend of the star, who is a politician, approaches the motor vehicles department to get it done.

Hareendran has to meet Motor Vehicle Inspector Kuruvilla (Suraj Venjarammoodu) to get the license. Kuruvilla, as we are told already, is a devoted fan of the superstar.

But things go horribly wrong from then on and that starts a battle between the superstar and the government official. 

With a tight script that has humour, emotions and drama, Sachy scores well. Lal Jr. packages the movie in an entertaining way. The visuals and the music are good.

In a role where he sportingly makes fun of even some of his own style at times, Prithviraj comes up with a top notch performance. He looks handsome and presents the life of an actor away from the limelight, in an impressive manner. He does the emotional portions with his wife and later when he is caught in a tough situation, in a highly convincing way.

Suraj Venjaramoodu continues with his terrific form, as the Motor Vehicle Inspector who is forced to initiate a rivalry with his idol. 

Saiju Kurup, Lalu Alex, Miya George, Deepti Sati, Suresh Krishna and Nandu have done their parts very well.

Driving Licence is a fine journey that keeps the viewer engaged all along. Give it a try!

Bajpayee essays a near-silent role, for Bhonsle is a man of few words. The subject of Bhonsle has been attempted in Hindi cinema, but no one has dared directly mention ethnic identities
