Story: Allen is a talented youngster who wishes to make a mark in the visual media. However, his pedestrian looks and lack of family support place stumbling blocks towards his dream. After a handful of oddball friends land in his life, he overcomes the hurdles, chase impossible targets and make an impact.

​Review: Homely Meals is a film that relies on no tried-and-tested recipe but yet manages to stand strong on its own young spine. An unconventional spread complete with an oddball hero, mostly never-heard-before story line, locales and even characters, the only charm the platter exudes at the beginning is the chance to try out something new. Nonetheless, through refreshing comedy to taste, ample moments of thrill and fun, it indulges the diners and makes them glad to have tried it out.

For starters, Vipin Atlee's character Allen is not someone who impresses at the outset. Frequently thrusting him in a sweaty avatar onto the audience's face feels distasteful, and countering the presentation with other characters occasionally telling him 'you are not presentable at all,' does not help viewers justify it much as well. However, it's when Allen appears as an actor or anchor on TV that the film's audience get to see a glimpse of his talent. Over time, his skills manage to impress, both on and off screen.

Anoop has managed to brilliantly fuse humour with villainy at many junctures. For instance, the entry of the much-feared goon Lalan, with the backing of an oft-heard background score that weirdly suits his name. The video-making scenes also trigger many bouts of laughter.
However, the second half drags and threatens to be tasteless at many junctures, due to the stretched narrative. Moreover, it looks like actor Sreenivasan's voice over has become one of the most sought-after elements in Malayalam films for narration, gap-filling and to even sensibly wrap up a story.

Though a sensitive tale of a talented Allen, it's through comedy that the film scores most of its brownie points. The actors, many of them new, have gotten under the skin of their characters. Being an artiste who does justice to any role, Srinda has done a decent job in her limited space. Overall, the film does not disappoint and definitely is a one-time watch.
