Plot

Annie, Sunny, and Jerry are siblings. Annie is in a good position in a company. She is married and has two kids. Her husband is very supportive, and he takes care of their home. Sunny is married, and he is doing an event management business. He is busy with his business and spends no time looking after his family. Jerry is yet to be married. He is an IT guy in a live-in relationship with a divorcee. The three siblings live in different places, and they decide to visit their father, who is living alone in a big house, after their mother's death. After spending some time with him, they all decide to return to their routine. It was the time when their father showed a video to them, in which they saw their late mother's final days. What was their mother's wish? Did they fulfill it? The rest of the film speaks about it.

Star Performance

While speaking about performances, we needn't compare Manju or Biju, or Anu Mohan. They did a perfect job, which their characters required. Saiju's performance is mature, and he has been honing his natural acting film by film.

Analysis

The film is a family comedy entertainer with some sentimental patches. Though the script is good while on the paper, we couldn't assure 100% that it was executed well. That doesn't mean it didn't satisfy the audience. The thing is, the makers wanted to give a sentimental entertainer with some joyous moments but ended up missing the logic. The characters are penned okayish, but the explanation is not proper in some places, and there are heaps of logical loopholes. The art direction is neat, and the visuals are catchy. The BGM gels well with the scenes.

What's There?

  • Performances of the stars are neat
  • The concept is good

What's Not There?

  • The logic goes missing in many scenes

Verdict

If we kick out the logic and watch the film for the stars' performances, Lalitham Sundaram is a decent entertainer.
