Padmini Malayalam Movie Review:- Because of how the writer arranges issues and people in the screenplay, Padmini, the new Malayalam movie from Senna Hegde, works exceptionally well as this light-hearted comedy. This Kunchako Boban starrer, based on the attempts of a 36-year-old man to get married, is continually entertaining, and the circumstances they have generated in the narration are actually original and funny. Yes, the conclusion is a little nervous since you would anticipate the humor to reach its pinnacle. Nevertheless, Deepu Pradeep’s writing keeps everything in place.
Rameshan, a college lecturer, had a first marriage that didn’t work out. On the first night of their marriage, Smrithi, his bride, went with her lover. Prior to Padmini, a visiting lecturer, joining his college, Rameshan had never been particularly interested in getting married again. But sadly, his first marriage gets in the way at a key juncture, and in Padmini, we watch how Rameshan and his lawyer handle that circumstance.
Deepu Pradeep’s first film, Kunjiramayanam, introduced us to his humor-making talents through the personalities and traits of the characters. The story-telling process is identical in this instance as well. Rameshan is somewhat like a more normal Kunjiraman. However, because of the more natural atmosphere, the conversation dynamic is a little different. There isn’t really a phase that feels tedious or overly extended because of the fluid screenplay’s connections between all the events. When you get to the final quarter of the movie, what will ultimately happen is predictable. However, the focus on humour somewhat protects the film from that shortcoming.
Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam was created by Senna Hegde, and Kunjiramayanam was authored by Deepu Pradeep. This combination has so successfully entered the wedding comedy market. Senna gives Deepu’s verbal comedy a lot more realistic undertones. Many scenes’ visual backdrops made them comedic, notably the ones with Sajin Cherukayil. Senna’s familiar Kasargode is a different geographical region, thus Sreeraj Raveendran’s frames are more colourful this time. Although it was kind of obvious that the comic sequence starring Sajin and Mani Shornur broke the 180-degree guideline, it worked with the comedy’s tone. Jakes Bejoy’s music seamlessly merged with the film.
As the main character Rameshan, Kunchako Boban was a great option since he fulfils the stereotype of an eligible bachelor with a sensitive and desperate side. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Aparna Balamurali in a comedic role, and she was wonderful in that role (my favourite was the one in the scene with the working women’s hostel). Aparna has a lot of room in Padmini because her character has her own track in the movie. Madonna Sebastian gives a polished performance and on-screen chemistry with Kunchako Boban. Vincy Sony Aloshious channels her inner Urvashi despite having relatively little screen time and giving a restrained eccentric performance. I thought it was great that they used Sajin Cherukayil’s advertisement throughout the intermission and at the end of the movie because he was funny as the comedic poisonous companion. Memorable performances were given by Anand Manmadhan as the “Aliyan,” Ganapathi as the Romeo brother, Mani Shornur, Seema G Nair, etc.
I would say that the finish is quite average when compared to the hilarity that the moments leading up to the climax generated. However, it is helping to create the narrative, and quite frankly, the hangover from the belly-laughing moments you had up until that point makes it somewhat forgiving. The 120-minute Padmini watch is entertaining and well worth your time.
