Varnyathil Aashanka review: realistic, exciting and engaging
Varnyathil Aashanka from Sidharth Bharathan is a localized heist movie that gives predominance to humor and satirical approach. Practical humor and peculiar characters are rich in this movie and it succeeds in being a good mix of realistic treatment and typical humor.
A four member gang of local thieves plans a heist operation. They all had their fair share of reason to go for this ambitious risky operation. Varnyathil Aashanka shows us the execution of this operation and how the accidental involvement of a fifth guy influences the whole plan.
The chances of it reminding you of Prithviraj movie Sapthamasree Thaskaraha is there. But the premise here is less complicated. It is happening in a remote place and the plan of action here is very low key. So the logic problems are surpassed very easily. By involving Dayanandan, the outsider Varnyathil Aashanka deviates from the usual path and also manages to add layers of sarcasm and satire to the narrative. The first half establishes the desperation of each character and once they all meet, the narrative becomes exciting and engaging.
More than Kunchacko Boban, the show stealer here is Suraj Venjaramood. His character Dayanandan is actually the one who navigates the movie to twists and turns. By mixing his old style and new style he makes Dayanandan a believable metaphor. Kunchacko Boban was fine as the angry Sivan. The rest of the gang comprising of Chemban Vinod Jose, Manikandan Achari and Shine Tom Chacko were also fine for the characters they were assigned to. The supporting cast was also not disappointing.
After the fair enough success of Chandrettan Evideya, Sidharth Bharathan once again tries his luck in the comedy genre and this time he looks more in control. The screenplay's interconnected feel gives a flow to the narrative and that keeps us engrossed to the events that happen on screen. With some fairly refreshing turn of events, it keeps you occupied till the end. The last speech of Dayanandan needed a little more sharpening considering the tone the movie had till that point. Visuals do justice to the theme and the cuts were sharp and effective. The unconventional BGM gives freshness to the treatment.
Varnyathil Aashanka definitely has quality to it's credit. It isn't trying hard to work on a political statement. But the cinematic quality makes it a movie that's worth spending money.
