A different ghost story
Jayasurya starrer horror comdy entertainer ‘Pretham’, written and directed by Ranjith Sankar has been released today. The star cast includes Aju Varghese,Govind Padmasoorya, Sharafudheen, Dharmajan Bolgatty and Pearle Maaney.
Three friends Denny Kokken (Aju Varghese), Shibu Majeed (Govind Padmasoorya) and Priyalal (Sharafudheen) have bought a seaside resort. Then they have felt the presence of ghost in that resort and are scared. The scenario has been changed after the entry of a mentalist, John Don Bosco (Jayasurya) into the trio’s life.
Jayasurya has played the role of a mentalist brilliantly. Aju Varghese and Govind Padmasoorya portrayed their role neatly whereas Sharafudheen steals the show. The support cast including Dharmajan Bolgatty, Harish Perady and Pearle Maaney have done their part very well.
Direction was top notch and the director did something different from the clichéd ghost stories. He managed to make the above average script into a good film by mixing some good comedies and engaging moments.
Screenplay and Dialogues
Screenplay is just above average. The script misses the crispiness which is essential for a thriller movie. The climax portions are a bit weak
The movie has just one song done by Anand Madhusoodhanan is good to hear. The background score is superb and this take the movie into another level. Cinematography by Jithu Damodar was good with some extraordinary shots. Editing by Sajan Vasudev is fine.
The movie is a perfect entertainer with some thrilling moments. Don’t expect a hard core horror movie
Verdict: Expected to be a hit
