Review:One way Ticket

Review:One way Ticket




Gone are the days when we used to see a 'Sandesham' or a 'Meesa Madhavan' every now and den in Malayalam cinema....
What do young script writers like Babu Janardhan do when dey run out of ideas? You needn't be Post Graduates or Genuises to figure out d answer to the afore asked querry....Just watch One Way Ticket And u will Instantly get a rough figure of the drought of fresh stories in Malayalam....
If you cannot write a Meesa Madhavan or a 'Sandesham' of Sorts why not copy Dem,change d characters a litte(lyk make d Bhageerathan Pillai played by jagathy a Muslim,)make Prithvi do watever Dileep did in Meesa and rasikan and rope in a Mega star Like Mammooty in a guest role and Finally ensure a good openin for d mvie by releasin it in more dan 60 centres!!!Dis is wat Babu Janardhan and co have managed to prove thru their latest flick One Way Ticket...
Comin to the story line...Prithvi plays kunjappu a jeep driver and an avid fan of Mammooty.For the heck of it he pretends to be in love with his uncle's daughter played by Radhika to settle his scores with his ruthless uncle...Meanwhile he falls in love with a hindu girl who is chased by her Maternal uncle for gettin all her wealth....How Kunjappu saves d heroine frm d goons and finally manage to End everythin perfectly like a picture perfect group photo is what One Way ticket has to offer....
With Amateurish Direction and 'u have seen it a million times' script One way ticket is a let down for all dose who entered d mvie hall with a lot of expectations....But considerin d fact dat Dese days even superstars Mamooty and Mohanlal have to find themselves solace in a Mayavi or a Hello, One way ticket is definitely a watchable fare....Prithvi Raj is in his comfort Zone and watchin him dance,fight and takin part in some funny scenes is a revelation.Mammooty though has done his guest role with sincerity looks disintersted in the climax sequence which is rather unrealistic and stupid.There is nothin to write about Rahul Raj's un inspirin music...
The mvie may not be a big hit but attain an average status in the box office in the long run.

Bottom Line: One way ticket is watchable....but don't we,the malayali audience deserve better stuff?

Good review, mate, but please do not use slang words or chat lingo. That looks bad.
