Production: E4 Entertainment Cast: Dileesh Pothan, Master Chetan, Master Chethan, Rohini, Sreenivasan, Tovino Thomas Direction: Johnpaul George Screenplay: Johnpaul George Story: Johnpaul George Music: Vishnu Vijay Background score: Vishnu Vijay Cinematography: Girish Gangadharan Editing: Dhilip Dennis

Guppy is the story of a street boy, nicknamed 'Guppy' and his tussle with an engineer Thejus Varkey who heads the construction of a railway over-bridge into their coastal town. The town's vibrant look is very similar to the colourful streets of Guanajuato, Mexico. The lead character played by master Chetan gets the nickname from his part-time job selling rainbow fish which is commonly known as Guppy. The movie focuses on the struggle of the young kid who wishes to buy a fully automated wheelchair for his mother.

The director John Paul George has handled this gripping drama with consummate ease. The scenes that depict the soul of each character has been taken effectively and helps to connect the audience with the character. The screenplay appears to lag at times, but the climax session is guaranteed entertainment. The VFX scenes have scope for improvement as it stands out to be a big negative of the movie. DOP by Gireesh Gangadharan acts as the perfect interface and gives the viewer a first-hand feel. The music by Vishnu Vijay has good energy and adds on to the on-screen colour. The background score is impressive and conveys a lot of emotion.

The casting of Chetan and Tovino were ideal and they essayed their parts with a lot of conviction. Tovino's dashing looks are an added attraction. The other notable performances were from Dileesh Pothen, Rohini, Alancier and Sudheer Karamana. Sreenivasan once again displays his acting prowess in a pivotal role. The young brigade of child artists has delivered a praiseworthy performance.

The movie has all the merit to satisfy people who are into class and realistic cinema with a tinge of mass in it. A few more cuts would have made the film crisper and a better work.

Verdict: A decent flick with guaranteed on-screen entertainment
