Vikadakumaran, directed by Boban Samuel and starring Dharmajan Bolgatty, Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Manasa Radhakrishnan, is a romantic comedy that is going to appeal to many people, as it is light, breezy and entertaining, with not much heft to it, but still enough to make it worth a watch. The movie is buoyed by the two main leads, who are charming enough to keep the situations interesting even when the script around them falters. There are some tonal issues with the film, as it goes from comedy, to romance to a sort of thriller, and then keeps flitting between these three. This could cause some irritation for the audiences who are not familiar with such stories.
However, the case makes it work. Dharmajan is cast a person who is likable and cute, and the actor does perfect justice to the role, filling it with charm and humanity. He never for ones shows any mannerism in the movie. Manasa, who is saddled with some rote scenes is still effective as a friendly woman who knows what she wants. Vishnu is also very good as he enters the movie and steals many scenes with his off beat character.
All in All the movie is messy but still does create some memorable moments, which is nothing short of a miracle considering the complex story.
