Movie Title

My Santa

Director

Sugeeth

Star Cast

Dileep, Baby Manasvi

Director Sugeeth’s My Santa has Dileep playing Santa Claus, appearing before a young girl as per her wish.

Aisa Elizabeth Jacob (Baby Manasvi) is living with her grandpa, whom she affectionately calls Kuttoosan (Sai Kumar), in a picturesque high range town. Her parents lost their lives in a car crash.

The grandpa has told her stories about Santa Claus and the little one really believes that Santa would appear on a Christmas day to give her whatever she asks for.

Just like the kid, you too are made to wait before Santa (Dileep) finally makes his appearance, some fifteen minutes or so before the interval. Until then certain sequences are stitched together, introducing the rest of the characters and setting the stage for Santa’s story.

Once Santa appears, the going becomes smooth and engaging. Even as he wears the white long beard and the bright red and white attire of Santa, Dileep entertains the viewers with his mannerisms and style. It is the second half and the climax portions with some emotional moments that is really effective here. 

Sugeeth packages the story with colourful visuals giving a fantasy feel, which suits the narrative perfectly. Yes, the kids would be enjoying more watching the movie initially, but from the moment Dileep makes his entry, it becomes entertaining for all age groups.  

As Santa, Dileep is brilliant. His dialogue delivery is top notch and he portrays his role with total dedication. Baby Manasvi, who is the real star here steals your heart with her cuteness and acting talent. The rest of the cast, including Anusree, Sai Kumar, Indrans, Kalabhavan Shajon, Sidhique and Dharmajan Bolghatty, have done their parts well. 

My Santa has perhaps an uneven pace but is earnest and affecting. Dileep has evidently targeted this to appeal to his strongest supporters, families and kids, and has succeeded in the process. Watch this one!

Verdict: A fine entertainer
