Direction: Sudheesh Shankar
Music: Srikanth Deva
Production: Al Shola Productions
The title could be reminiscent of a moving old song, but the movie has nothing in it to move you, literally. Sitcom director Sudeesh Shankar’s debut Aaru Maname is a poorly mixed cocktail concoction that gives you an instant hangover followed by other mental complications upon consumption, least of them being the money you blew up on the tickets.
 
Aarumaname

Rajesh, Meera Krishna, Deepak and Sreeman form one small happy family. While Sreeman, the PWD Engineer, is successful, the protagonist Deepak is an auto driver struggling with life. Being a government official in a position vulnerable to the wrath of politicians, Sreeman gets murdered in a controversial assignment. Now it’s Deepak, the brother’s role to seek revenge and in the process unearth his brother’s secrets.

As is noticeable, there is ample scope for drama and action in the plot. But the problem with the plot is that it doesn’t get serious until after interval. Most part of the first half is consumed in unintelligent indolence. Kanja Karuppu’s comedy is so excruciating that it feels unpardonable to have him cast in a double role that only doubles up the misery.

Rajesh and Meera Krishnan deliver as dutiful parents and Sreeman appears momentarily in a less significant role. Deepak’s bouncy stunts and dance moves prove to be a ball lost in the high weeds for they serve little purpose in the movie marred with other shortfalls. Karthika’s role earns some sympathy and it’s quite opposite with Nicole who couldn’t just save the disgrace of being cast as a fat chick with her cutesy smile or plump figure.


Aaru Maname, thus, drags along to culminate into a dreary climax where everybody gets everything and all the misgivings are resolved miraculously.

Verdict: Let’s stay home!
