Mr & Ms Rowdy
Kalidas Jayaram, Aparna Balamurali
Director Jeethu Joseph’s Mr & Ms Rowdy talks about Appu and his friends, who hope to earn some fast bucks by forming a small time quotation gang.
Appu (Kalidas Jayaram) and his buddies are local rowdies, well, mostly in a comical way. It is perhaps their bitter past where they had done a crime when they were very young that made them decide to try that line. What they usually get are petty deals which doesn’t earn them much and they are looking for some real adventure.
They are the kind who can beat up others for a sum but don’t know what to do while facing a bold young girl Poornima (Aparna Balamurali).
After she is thrown out of her home by her step mother, Poornima shifts to Appu’s modest house and there are some funny scenes as the gang tries every method to get rid of her.
The story takes some twists later on and the stage is set for some action as well.
The storyline moves along in a pretty predictable line but in the whole, the film has been packaged in an entertaining way. The visuals and the music suits the mood.
Kalidas Jayaram looks smart and manages to do a fine job, though his diction is quite not like what a normal villager would speak. Aparna Balamurali is convincing as a nice girl, who has to act tough in a situation where she is left with no other options. The gang of friends played by Ganapathy, Vishnu Govindan, Shebin Benson and Sarath keep things lively.
Mr & Ms Rowdy may be far from perfect but is a fine watch that manages to keep the viewer entertained.
