Thrissivaperoor Kliptham STORY : As part of experiencing the joys of life, young and coy Girijavalabhan (Asif Ali) gets to be part of a four-member Thrissur gang led by David Pauly (Chemban Vinod). The gang also has an adversary in former schoolmate Joy, who belittles them at every turn. One of their plans to avenge and outdo Joy becomes a launchpad for Giri to shine. But will they succeed?

Thrissivaperoor Kliptham REVIEW : From the very first audio byte and visuals of Thrissivaperoor Kliptham, debutant director Ratheish Kumar makes it clear the kind of jokes the movie will have and that it will be a proper entertainer, without any experimental gimmicks.

Thrissur and its people are the heart of the film, and for the major part of first half Ratheish introduces the characters – one by one – along with highlighting their virtues and vices. Chemban Vinod’s David Pauly is the first to be introduced – a middle-aged macho man whose alcoholism has got his family so worried that they force him to get married. However, a particular gift from a supposed well-wisher spoils the wedding plans. The well-wisher turns out to be Joy (Baburaj) who is also David and his friends’ schoolmate and their rivalry stretches back to their halcyon days. And Joy doesn’t waste an opportunity to demean his rivals at every chance he gets.

Two more characters who are central to the story are Girija Vallabhan (Asif Ali), a coy youth who is yet to experience the joys of life and Bhagi (Aparna Balamurali), a brave and virtuous autorickshaw driver. The novelty in PS Rafeeque’s script is that the characters signify a role reversal of sorts, with Bhagi being given an entry usually reserved for a mass hero while Giri is shown as a feeble introvert.

A chanced encounter with Chemban’s gang has Giri also joining them. His coy personality though belies his smarts, and a plan to avenge Joy becomes a launchpad for Giri to “blossom into a man”. But will it succeed, especially when Joy has outsmarted his rivals time and again?

The strength of the film, which is a mix of comedy and drama, is the acting performances – from Chemban, who has amazing screen presence, Baburaj, who makes for a fun villain and Irshad, who plays one of the gang members. Asif pulls off the shy Giri, who harbours a lot of fantasies, so well that he remains in character even when not in focus. Aparna as the brash, strong-willed girl once again proves that she’s got the mettle to make it big.

The film though starts off slow, builds up its characters, reveals a promising plot and then squanders it all to take a predictable route. The second half loses steam with first few minutes giving ample hints to show the audience where the plot is heading. While the climax has its fair set of twists and turns, the movie falls short of the promise of an entertainer that was promised at the end of first half.

Bijibal’s music is a bright spot in the film, set in Thrissur, while the editing and cinematography too makes it an easy one-time watch, which could also remind viewers of films in the 80s and 90s when the entire cast carried a film and a hero wasn’t necessarily the focal point of the movie.

Waste of money..saw this film only coz of the Review which gave 3stars but the plot is pointless.. script totally looses its grip at many places.. performances of Chemban Vinod and Aparna was the only good thing.. Asifs character didn''t have depth as the character doesn''t establish from the beginning .. Rating is 1/5.
