Ordinary – A very Ordinary Movie

Malayalam movie ‘Ordinary’ starring Kunchacko Boban, Biju Menon and Aan Augustine very well justify its name – a very ‘Ordinary’ movie. Cinematography is the best thing about this movie. A person watching this movie will definitely set plans for a trip to Gavi. The beauty of Gavi is presented in such an awesome manner. Predictable story line is the biggest drawback of the movie in my opinion.

Ordinary tells the story of a  driver and conductor of a lone bus (KSRTC) to an interior village in Kerala and their close relation with the villagers. The movie portrays the pathetic situation of the state run Kerala Public Transport Corporation.Baburaj plays the role of a funny drunkard and proves his scope as a good comedian. I felt like most of the romantic scenes (so called romantic scenes) are cut and copy from old malayalam movies. Asif Ali plays a commendable role in the movie.

The movie has got three songs which again keep justice to the title – ordinary ones. Biju Menon’s Trivandrum dialect in the movie dint click.

My rating : 4/10

Verdict : A very ordinary movie

theatre : Saritha Ernakulam

Sujith, Biju Menon spoke in somewhat authentic Palakkadan slang. he is introduced as ” oru Palakkattukaaran Suku”. And he did it well . Asif Ali sucked when he portrayed that eccentric character. And I literally burst out laughing during the climax, when I saw his facial expressions! It’s a feel good movie. that’s it.

You seem to be biased in your opinion. It is defenitely an extra ordinary movie and it is being proved everyday with the tremendous response from the audience. Biju Menon’s performance is superb and the palakkadan accent is the highlight of the movie. Kunchako Boban is maturing to be a natural actor. Other cast has also done a good job except little over acting of Asif and Baburaj.
