Oru Mexican Aparatha Movie Review: Worth Watching Decent Entertainer!
Another debutant director had made his debut here in Mollywood and his name is Tom Emmatty. He had come up with a movie titled Oru Mexican Aparatha, which was also scripted by him. The movie graced the screens this friday and it was bankrolled by popular filmmaker Anoop Kannan under his production banner named Anoop Kannan Stories. Young Actor Tovino Thomas had played the lead in this movie along with artists like Neeraj Madhav and Roopesh Peethambaran who is popular in Kerala as Junior Aadu Thoma. He had played the younger Aadu Thoma in Mohanlal starrer Spadikam years back.
This flick can come under the category of a political movie or a campus political thriller. The plot of this movie revolves around the character named Paul played by Tovino who is a student at Ernakulam Maharajas College. The plot is fully set on the college campus and the political tension there between the two students organizations named SFY and KSQ. The film shows how SFY wins over KSQ after many years there in an election and how they win.
Tom Emmatty had delivered a decent product as he becomes successful in entertaining the audience and at the same time given a different campus movie. The political inclination is very clear from the beginning and the narration of the plot was according to justify that inclination. But the way he presented it was very good even though the film should have been shorter in length. 2 hour 23 minutes length made it a lagging affair here and there and that had taken away the punch on certain occasions. The dialogues at times lost the natural flavor and certain situations looked unconvincing as well. But still, the director made the audience glued to their seats by making it as a technically well -made movie.
Performance from Tovino Thomas was great and he had given a sterling portrayal of Paul and also Kochaniyan from 1970’s. Neeraj Madhav was as usual effortless in his portrayal of Subhash and Roopesh Peethambaran shines too as Roopesh, the character with a negative shade. Others like Jino John, Gayathri Suresh, Sudheer Karamana and many other new faces did their part to perfection as well.
DOP from Prakash Velayudhan was superb and visuals were so good. Music from Manikandan Ayyappan was also cool and the energy he provided through the background music was just stunning. Editing by Shameer Muhammad should have been better, as at the time the movie lost its pace.
As a whole, Oru Mexican Aparatha is a decent entertainer which will worth a watch. Don’t go by carrying the burden of expectations on your shoulder to the cinema halls. It will satisfy you if you go with moderate expectations.
