Movie Title

Oru Yamandan Premakadha


B C Naufal

Star Cast

Dulquer Salmaan, Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Nikhila Vimal

The tagline of director B C Naufal’s Oru Yamandan Premakadha announces, “It’s that story which you had guessed…” Now, that is pretty much a statement to tell the audience not to take this one too seriously. 

Lallu (Dulquer Salmaan) is the son of a wealthy lawyer named Kombanayil John (Renji Panicker). However, from his childhood days Lallu loves people around him without any discrimination about aspects like money, religion or social status. 

He is always seen with his gang, Panchi Kuttan (Salim Kumar), Vicky (Soubin Shahir) and a visually challenged Teny Sebastian (Vishnu Unnikrishnan). Lallu is always proud to tell others that he is a painter, who works for daily wages.

The story goes along for quite a while narrating several interesting instances from their lives and also from those around them. Jesna (Samyuktha Menon), the daughter of a local moneybags, is madly in love with Lallu, but he is waiting for that girl who will create that “spark” in his life. 

When the search for that “spark” goes on and on, Lallu’s younger brother Pappi (Arun Kurian) is miffed as his girlfriend is forcing him for a wedding. 

Scenarists Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Bibin George, who earlier wrote Amar Akbar Anthony and Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan, uses every trick that worked in their earlier scripts. The writing is fine at best.

The suave Dulquer Salmaan looks totally comfortable playing a village youth. He performs his part honestly and displays good comic timing as well. Vishnu Unnikrishnan is convincing as a visually challenged guy, though one gets the feeling that the jokes about blindness goes a bit too far mostly.

Salim Kumar scores very well. Soubin Shahir has a limited role to play. While Nikhila Vimal looks good in her brief role, Samyuktha Menon has nothing much to do.

Oru Yamandan Premakadha is one of those films which is meant to be enjoyed without thinking too much.
