The youngest kid in the house dreams of visiting Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai. His father works in Dubai and tries to get perfect living conditions for his family. Was the kid able to get his dream fulfilled? The answer forms the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Athrey Baijuraj, who plays the titular role, excels in the given role. Najin Abbas Ali and Arafa Rahman fit well in the roles. Aneesh G Menon and Anu Sithara played the parents; their performance was so natural and impressive. The chemistry between the main characters looks so cute.


The director has come up with a film that has a normal story with no cinematic insertions. The screenplay and dialogues are written perfectly. The characters are penned well. The children’s character is so natural and not overwritten. Anu Sithara and Aneesh fit well in the characters, and thanks to the casting team, who picked them. A neighbor character in Dubai is exciting, and it is also one of the main characters of the film that make the audience enjoy the movie, though the screen presence of that character is limited. However, Athrey’s expressions in the climax could’ve been better, and the director could’ve made some more effort to make it right.

What’s There?

  • Neat performances by the leads and the kids
  • The screenplay is interesting, and the execution too

What’s Not There?

  • A few loopholes in the climax


Though the film has some loopholes, the artists who performed naturally will make the viewers watch the movie throughout without any regrets. The film will definitely impress the kids. Momo In Dubai – An exciting travel!
