Plot

Oliver Twist has two sons, and the elder one is a film director, Antony. Both his sons spend their time with their phones. Although they are home, Oliver can’t connect with his sons, as they are always busy with their smartphones. So, he decided to get a smartphone for him to connect with them. On the other hand, Antony is struggling to get his next film. As he doesn’t get linked with his home or the people around him, he misses the grip in his script. Oliver visits a psychologist to suggest ideas to bring him back to normal life. What unites the family? Did Olive succeed? The rest of the story deals with this.

Star Performance

Indrans is a good performer, and we all know that. He proves it once again by taking a different character and excelling in it. Sreenath Bhasi, Naslen, Manju, and the rest of the characters did their best.

Analysis

Rojin Thomas, who already impressed the audience with his film, Phillips And The Monkey Pen, attracted the audience with his interesting script. The narration is pretty good, and the characters are penned well. The unusual combination of Indrans and Manju Pillai is an added plus in the film. They both have excelled in their roles. KPAC Lalitha and others rendered good support to this message-oriented comedy film. We witness a lot of laugh-out-loud moments and a strong message too. The music and cinematography are fine too. The climax portions are shot well, and they certainly touch the hearts.

What’s There?

What’s Not There?

Verdict

Home is definitely a home that we need. It is not made of bricks but with love and affection. The film reveals the bonding between the family members and how the distance could be covered. Home – a must-watch!
