Adorable kids on a matchmaking mission for parents is a tested plot. The Siddique directorial is not another film with morals woven into the script but a light-hearted, slick urbane entertainer.

Story: Hot-headed businessman Bhaskar's son Aadi lost his mother as an infant. Aadi is best friends with schoolmate Shivani, whose dad is no more. They admire each other's parents and decide to play cupid between them. However, the troublesome past of Shivani's mother Hima leads to various precarious situations, diminishing chances of a happily-ever-after.

Review: 'Adorable little darlings on a matchmaking mission for parents' is a plot tried, tested and tweaked enough in our films. Hatching innocent yet brilliant schemes and mouthing 'too-smart-for-their-age' lines, they often win hearts too. This is more or less the premise of Bhaskar The Rascal, besides being a star vehicle for Mammootty with a ravishing Nayanthara as pillion-rider.

Though a successful entrepreneur, Bhaskar (Mammootty) is a widower, unrefined in manners, and often picks fights. His son Aadi (Sanoop Santhosh) is best friends with Shivani (Anigha), and is quite fond of her mother Hima (Nayanthara), a widow. Shivani admires Bhaskar's heroics too and the kids try to get the duo married. While clash of personalities is already a deterrent for the same, Hima's haunting past gets unfurled by someone revengeful and all hell breaks loose.

It's not another film with morals woven into the script, hoping to see the audience in tears, but a light-hearted, slick urbane entertainer. Consummate performers in their own right - Mammootty, Nayanthara, Sanoop and Anigha - lend the gravitas needed for their respective roles. The story, as a whole, is part humorous and part sentimental, but thankfully never delves into melodrama.

On the flipside, many comic sequences hardly trigger laughter, making you wonder whether they're part of a Siddhique film! The innocence of young minds also gets diluted at places, with hard-to-digest mature talks.

A vacation release, Bhaskar The Rascal is pure escapist cinema at its best.
