Review By : Movie Run Time : 1 hour 55 minutes Censor Rating : UA Genre : Drama, Humour

Production: Chemban Vinod Jose, Chembosky Motion Pictures, OPM Cinemas Cast: Chemban Vinod Jose, Jinu Joseph, Kunchacko Boban, Suraj Venjaramoodu Direction: Ashraf Hamsa Music: Vishnu Vijay Cinematography: Girish Gangadharan Editing: Nizam Kadiry Distribution: OPM Cinemas

Directed by Thamasha fame Ashraf Hamza, Bheemante Vazhi is a comedy-drama film. Kunchako Boban and Chinnu Chandni reprise the lead roles while the supporting cast includes Chemban Vinod Jose, Jinu Joseph, Nirmal Palazhi, and Suraj Venjaramoodu. Cinematographer Girish Gangadharan and music director Vishnu Vijay join hands once again after working together in Guppy.

The movie opens at a residential community, located next to a congested lane: Snehanagar Road. While the road has always been an inconvenience to most residents in the area, Sanju (Kunchako Boban), realizes the need for a wider road after his mother needs to be rushed to a hospital after a fall. How Sanju and his motley crew of neighbours work towards widening the road despite hindrances forms the crux of the story.

Chemban Vinod Jose, who plays a pivotal role in the film, wrote the film's screenplay. His last writing work was Angamali Diaries and as is his trademark, Jose wasn't shy with his writing in Bheemante Vazhi. Through simple dialogues and sequences he was able to show how people in the community had learned to live and adapt to a small lane. Needless to say, there is a sense of subtlety in the movie when it comes to sequences that could have been emotional and over the top.

Bheemante Vazhi is no laughing riot despite being a comedy-drama film. However, the perfect comedic timing from the supporting cast like Suraj Venjaramoodu make the movie naturally funny, inducing chuckles. In other cases, the caricaturish characters and their behavior are more than enough to amuse the audience.

Known for his long shots, Girish Gangadharan manages to portray the suffocating nature of the tiny lane with a single scene where Boban is riding his bike.

What really works for Bheemante Vazhi is the lack of unnecessary and emotional sequences regarding the inconvenience caused by the road or lack thereof. However, it is this lack of emotions that may leave the audience disconnected from the characters and the story itself.

In Bheemante Vazhi's world, events just happen because Sanju wants them to. There is seldom any explanation for character intentions or characters. Even the supposed female lead of the film, Chinnu Chandni, gets gye least amount of screentime or characterization.

To conclude, Bheemante Vazhi is a decent comedy-drama with a sense of subtlety and a lack of character development. The 115-minute movie has been written and cinematographed moderately well. It definitely is good for a one-time watch.


Verdict: Bheemante Vazhi is a decent enough film for some weekend entertainment
