Oru Pazhaya Bomb Kadha
Bibin George, Prayaga Martin
It should have taken some real efforts for director Shafi and the writers of Oru Pazhaya Bomb Kadha to come up with such a silly story that they have done now. The result is that it is neither humorous not thrilling, the mix of which it is supposed to be.
Sreekuttan (Bibin George) has been called “Onnara hero”, which is to denote polio that has affected one of his legs. He is a mechanic and his colleague from the workshop, Bhavyan (Hareesh Perumanna), is his confidante.
There is a mention about a Maoist outfit and it continues throughout, though that has not much relevance to the main story. In fact, there are so many fillers in this film, which are expected to make the viewers laugh. The two women from Action Hero Biju almost imitates their own characters from their original. Then there is Balachandran Chullikkad as a retired don. But sadly, they are not genuine enough to make you laugh.
The main plot takes a twist when Sreekuttan and Bhavyan rubs the local sub Inspector Rajendran (Kalabhavan Shajon) the wrong way. It becomes a rivalry that takes the story ahead from then on.
Also there is a romantic side track involving Sruthi (Prayaga Martin).
It’s one of those “mimicry movies” that Shafi has made this time, which we usually see in Malayalam, that is essentially a string of comedy skits, with a weak storyline that somehow manages to link it all.
Bibin George looks good and plays his role with confidence. Hareesh Perumanna’s one liners hits the target only once in a while. Kalabhavan Shajon is good as the baddie. Prayaga Martin has a limited role to do and even then, has a single expression all along.
Oru Pazhaya Bomb Kadha suffers from a weak script and would be fine only for those who find those comedy skits on TV extremely funny. For the rest of the world the just under 2 hours and 30 minutes duration will be a not-so-pleasant experience. Now decide to which category you belong to, while going for this.
