: Adhishtalakshmi bribes her college mate Bhanuprasad to get into the boys' hostel one night. What is her intention and how does the plan unfurl, form the plot of the movie.
: Say 'fun in hostel' and the umpteen quirky possibilities emerge as interesting topics of conversation. Adi Kapyare Kootamani banks on this curiosity to visualise 'what actually goes beyond those gates'. A fun take on what happens to a girl who gets trapped in a boy's hostel, the film is a comedy of errors.
Upon encountering a financially-hit Bhanuprasad (Dhyan Sreenivasan) on her college campus, Adhishtalakshmi (Namitha Pramod) offers him a huge sum of money. But in return, she asks him to sneak her in to the boy's hostel of the college, where he stays. Why she tries to barge in there and the ensuing complications, wrapped in comedy, form the crux of the film.
The many relatable comic instances on our campuses fashion the basis of this movie, which thrives on character stereotypes and conversations commonly heard in these corridors. The premise is something that has proved bankable, time and again in film industries, if there is a compelling story structure. The film succeeds in parts as far as the structuring is concerned, also it has its share of amateurishly boring portions that could have been shortened.
Both the pre and post interval portions are decently paced, and there are some hilarious one-liners and spoofs that evoke tonnes of laughter, for instance the Manichithrathazhu-inspired scene and the hostel raid's signal sequences.
However, there are scenes that drag on, such as the one in which the guys wait outside the bathroom as their new girl inmate takes a shower. While the song and one liners are supposed to tickle the audience, they aren't effective. The scenes hold together only because of Aju and Neeraj, who steal the show. Dhyan's dumb-guy act works in parts and falls flat in rest of the sequences. The film is a one-time watch for its humour and music.
