‘Biskoth’ is a rom-com film scripted and directed by “R Kannan.” “Santhanam” and Tara Alisha Berry play the lead roles. The film has the supporting cast of Sowcar Janaki, Swathi Muppala, “Anandaraj,” Naan Kadavul “Rajendran,” Aadukalam Naren, “Jeeva,” Lollu Sabha Manohar and “Sivasankar” in the supporting roles. Shanmuga Sundaram cranked the camera and RK Selva is the editor. Trident Arts produced the film. ‘Radhan’ composed the music.
Raja is the son of Dharmarajan, a small-time biscuit maker. Dharmarajan leaves his business to his friend Narasimhan and passes away. However, Raja grows as a worker in the biscuit company. He shares a close bonding with Janaki, an old lady who resides in the old age home. She narrates some stories to Raja regularly. Soon, he finds that the stories narrated by Jankai come true. Raja is expecting some good stories from Janaki so that his life would flourish. What happens in Raja’s life? Did he get back his biscuit company? The answers form the rest of the story.
The performance of the stars is good. Santhanam’s performance is good, as usual. Sowcar Janaki is perfect with her experienced performance. The heroines are used in the template leading ladies' roles.
The film is inspired by the Hollywood film Bedtime Stories. Certain sequences are modified and made to fit the Indian sensibilities. The narration by Sowcar Janaki is picturized like a drama. As the same cast is chosen as in Santhanam’s previous films, it looks like a continuation of his previous movies. However, the comedy scenes didn’t attract the audience much. The production values are quite okayish. The BGM and cinematography are good.
What’s Not There?
When fans expect a complete comedy entertainer from Santhanam, the film slightly disappoints with the drama kind of narration. The film's biggest highlight is that it is the 400th film of Sowcar Janaki, the veteran star, who impressed the audience with various roles.
