Malayalam movies are always known for their interesting titles. Well, reading this title Rajamma @ Yahoo your creative mind would have imagined of various possibilities. Is Rajamma an uneducated mother, who is also into social networking? Well, you are not to be blamed, But again, the Rajamma here is none other than Michael Rajamma, who is a lead character in the film! Aha! What a buzz a title can create!
Plot: The flick centers on two brothers Michael alias Rajamma and Vishnu Yohannan alias Yahoo, played by Kunchacko Boban
Star Performances: Kunchacko Boban seamlessly transforms himself into a character that is younger to his present age. In fact, this is one of his best performances to date. And with all the traits of a naughty younger brother, Asif Ali fits the bill to the T. His humor streak in the film is commendable. Kunchacko flaunts with a thick beard whereas Asif is clean shaven in the film. Concerning the leading women, Nikki Galrani (initially Deepti Sati was approached for the role) and Anusree have studied their roles carefully. Also, they look ravishing. The supporting cast KPAC Lalitha, Renji Panicker, Hareesh Peradi, Sethulakshmi, and Sooraj Venjaramoodu show a realistic performance, typical of many Malayalam films.
1. Sindhiraj is a seasoned writer, and he captures all the subtleties of lower middle-class families living in a city in an effective manner.
2. It is hard to believe that Raghu Varma is a newbie; his direction is effective.
3. Bijlibai’s music is soothing.
What’s not there?
1. The second half could have been better.
2. About the expectations, the climax could have been handled well.
Verdict: A neat family entertainer. That’s Rajamma@Yahoo for you.
