Story : Four friends from Kozhikode want to make it big in their lives, but are too immature to make their dreams work. One after the other, all their plans flop, but only until they make a discovery about their little group.

Review : Musk deer is famous for its exquisite fragrance and for wandering miles and years together, in search of the scent without realizing that it's actually emanating from them. Goodalochana is the story of such a group of friends. They try umpteen ways to success, court failure one after the other and at certain points even get sick of their close-knit group, only to thankfully learn the lesson at the end. However, watching their journey can be a tiresome experience to viewers for more reasons than one.

Goodalochana is the life of four buddies - Jamshir ( Kanaran Harish), Varun ( Dhyan), Ajaz ( Srinath Bhasi) and Prakashan ( Aju Varghese), who want to be successful, earn some money and live a content life. They hardly have any business acumen or the foresight fullness to handle joint ventures and thus, all efforts end up being flops. But, all of this is until a major realization hits them.

If you take a bird's eye view of the film, it teaches a major lesson - we often fail to recognize the hero within us. It often takes decades or even a lifetime for many to see what they had inside of them to emerge stronger and better in lives, just as in this film - especially in the case of Prakashan, played by Aju Varghese. However, the film falters when it comes to narrating the story in an engaging fashion or banking on many situational comedies that the plot would have offered. Not that the makers haven't tried to present it all in a colourful manner in many ways. Just as it's often shown in numerous films now, Goodalochana tries to lure in the audience with a song and intro video on Kozhikode and its many varieties of dishes. It's time that the industry recognises this as a done-to-death concept... Even for unimportant scenes - like the one in which Sreenath Bhasi's character plays football on the beach, a tad innovative background music is inserted. However, it only serves as a distraction, making the audience smirk at the insipid wordings and music. The movie just drags on with daft dialogues, attempts to crack frivolous one-lines and hardly anything to keep you interested in the protagonists' fate. And when things start working out for them, it's an easy guess as to how the rest of the story will pan out.

Goodalochana doesn't have an interesting storyline or 'conspiracy' true to its name. It can be a challenge if you want to stay glued to the tale for two-and-a-half hours.
