Anwar Sadik's Ormayundo Ee Mugham is loosely based on Peter Segal's Hollywood film 50 First Dates
Nitya (Namitha Pramod) is a sand artist by profession and lives with her younger sister after their parents were killed in an accident. The siblings get involved in a car accident following which Nitya forgets everything that happened after the accident in a span of 24 hours.
Gautam (Vineeth Sreenivasan) works in his mother's company but botches up the business prospects of the company with his forgetfulness. His is close to following the path taken by his father, a failed man who commits suicide. The two forgetful youngsters meet under extraordinary circumstances and it is love at first sight for Gautam. The travails of a guy, whose lover forgets him every morning, form the story. However, despite the good performances, a weak script and amateurish filmmaking makes the film a tedious watch.
In theory, the film has everything in place for a romantic comedy - a grandmother who inculcates the concepts of true love and soul mates in her grandson, a well-dressed set of youngsters who frequent coffee shops and malls, upbeat music by Shaan Rahman and picture-perfect homes and streets as locales, plus a storyline far distanced from reality.
The love scenes are irritating, to say the least, and you feel angry that a fine actor like Vineeth Srinivasan is made to mouth cliched dialogues professing his undying love for his sweetheart.
Namitha's 'bubbly and positive' persona appears forced and artificial, and her overly made up face seems to reflect the superficiality of their relationship. But you feel like blaming the makers for this aspect. The film does have its moments, like in the scenes where Gautam seeks his family's approval while getting ready for his first date; but just as you sit up and take notice it slips into a predictable route.
Vineeth Sreenivasan is endearing as the love struck hero and reinforces the image of Sreenivasan in certain scenes. Aju Varghese as his friend provides the much needed comic relief, when the character attempts selfies even in a hospital. Lakshmi as Gautam's grandmother is graceful and elegant and commands screen presence while Rohini as his mother is perfect for the role. Kudos to the makers for choosing someone as unconventional as Soumya Sadanandan as the heroine's sister.
The film has obviously been made with all the right intentions and even has a scene where the doctor says that in movies like 50 First Dates or Ghajini, memory loss is romanticized, but in real life things are not pretty. However, Ormayundo Ee Mugham does just that at the end and should be watched only if you can be kept entertained by multiple close up shots of Namitha's pretty face.
