Binu S had made an impressive entry to Mollywood, a few years back with the fantasy comedy named Ithihasa. It had become a surprise hit and later he came up with an action film as well named Style. With these two films, he showed his craft as a filmmaker and he showed us that he knows the pulse of the audience. Now, he had come up with a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of a campus.
The flick is set in Sree Sankara College, Kalady and the lead characters are the students of that college. Hari and Achamma Varghese played by Askar Ali and Aparna Balamurali are the central characters in this flick. Hari is a blind guy and Achamma is a girl who behaves more or less like a brave boy. The romantic track that develops between these two forms the crux of the plot.
Once again Binu S had shown us his skill to make a simple plot to a complete entertainer. He knows how to make the audience laugh and what they want to see on screen. He presented a simple theme and there nothing extraordinary in it. But the way he presented it made the movie a complete entertainer which will never test the patience of the audience. The screenplay written by Binu S himself set a very good platform and later he had made a superb entertainer standing on that platform set by himself. The dialogues were hilarious and the use of actors to good effect too made this movie a watchable entertainer.
The main highlight of the movie is the performance of the artists in it. Askar Ali, as the blind guy named Hari, had done a very good job in this movie. He never looked out of place and given a matured and cool performance. Aparna Balamurali once again has given a stunning performance and we can say that she is the energy source of this flick. Baiju, Kottayam Pradeep, Ronnie etc also done a great job and along with them, a lot of newcomers too did well in this movie.
Rowin Bhaskar had cranked the camera and he made the film look rich with his colorful frames. Gopi Sundar’s songs were blended really well with the atmosphere in the plot and the background music too was great. Sudhi Maddison had given a nice pace to the proceedings on screen with his crisp editing.
On the whole, Kamuki is a clean entertainer which has all elements in it to make you laugh and relax inside the cinema hall. We can call it a complete fun film and it will never make you yawn inside the cinema hall for sure.
