Mayamohini     Malluwood Movie Review

Story: A predictable tale, the story begins with Balakrishnan (biju menon) who is a millionaire but is going through a bad time as all his business ventures are becoming flops. He starts believing in his family astrologer on the advice of his close friend Lakshminarayan (baburaj). The astrologer speaks about a girl born in the moon star who will bring luck to Balakrishnan. In no time, enters Maya (lekshmi rai) who is born in the same star and befriends Balakrishnan. But then, she escapes with her father by looting a large sum of money from Balakrishnan. Now, he is left in the lurch and the only way is to convince his uncle to transfer the ancestral property by proving his happy married life. At this point comes Mayamohini (dileep) who is hired to act as Balakrishnan’s wife. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Mayamohini     Malayalam Cinema Review

Presentation: The director has come up with a routine storyline and while the presentation was somewhat decent, the narrative was not as per expectations. The dialogues were good in places but had double meanings. The script was average and the screenplay lacked the required strength. Background score was good but the songs were not upto the mark. Cinematography was adequate. Editing was required during second half. Costumes were usual while the art department was okay. Dileep gave a sincere performance and scores with his act. Biju Menon was regular. Baburaj was usual. Lekshmy Rai was sensuous but not much to do in terms of acting. Mydhili was moderate. Vijayaraghavan was apt.

Mayamohini     Filem Review

Conclusion: The film tends to find some inspiration from movies like Mrs Doubtfire and Avvai Shanmugi but with few twists. While the first half goes about smoothly with a fair dose of comedy and light moments, it is the second half which suffers a blow due to an attempt to make the film serious. Overall, this is a film which could have been better if executed in the right manner. At the box office, it could be an average grosser though the openings will be nice.
