Storyline: A person recruits a bunch of bizarre individuals in dire straits to steal a priceless portray from a millionaire

The theme just isn’t new, however Haneef’s second outing with Nivin Pauly after Mikhael had all of the elements to make it an fascinating watch. Nevertheless, what the director-scenarist offers you is a movie riddled with issues. In 148 minutes, all that you simply get is a film that’s all type and no substance.

To begin with, you desperately wish to really feel the ache of the characters who’re roped in for the theft however in useless. The conditions and dialogues are so rushed that earlier than you realize what is going on they’re all in some place in West Asia the place Ramachandra Boss awaits them. It will have been thrilling had the director paid sufficient consideration to determine the character arc of the characters.

You can not make a heist film with a weak script. However that’s what Haneef tries to do. There may be not a single scene that retains you on the sting of the seat.. The twists and turns in the direction of the climax are underwhelming. One thrilling scene would have made a complete lot of distinction. Some sequences simply drag on, like Nivin’s introduction scene!

Haneef’s try to herald humour not like his first two movies, The Nice Father and Mikhael, works to some extent, that too solely due to the actors — Vinay Forrt, who’s Nivin’s ally, and the members of the gang performed by Jaffer Idukki, Sreenath Babu, Vijilesh, Mamitha Baiju and Aarsha Chandini Baiju. Vinay is hilarious because the flirtatious Shailesh along with his one-liners and repartees, particularly in his scenes with Nivin, who’s spot-on along with his comedy. Surprise how the movie would have been had these scenes not been there! If solely Nivin, who can be one of many producers of the film, had a greater script and fleshed-out function.

Jaffer proves but once more that he’s a superb actor, dealing with each humorous and intense scenes with ease. The opposite artists have additionally come good of their scenes, though that they’d nothing a lot to do. An enormous disappointment is how the villain, performed by Hindi actor Munish, has been portrayed. Despite having such a superb artist on board, the director fails to utilize his potential. All that the character does is look suave and trendy, smoke and scream on the high of his lungs, which turns into tiring for the viewer after a degree.

A saving grace is beautiful visuals by cinematographer Vishnu Thandassery. Transition scenes have been seamlessly fused, whereas music by Midhun Mukundan excites in elements.

Ramachandra Boss & Co is taking part in in theatres.
