And now he teams up with director Vinayan in the movie DADASAHEB that promised to be different. And obviously opening grandly this Christmas.
different it is, because we have Mammooty in a double role, as father
and son. However except for that factor, the rest of the movie moves
like any other movie with a weak storyline and looks to merely cash in
on the superstar's image.
And then we have the old man's son AbuBacker (Mammooty again) who also happened to serve the army. But being the son of the great father, he too manages to fight against the injustice going around in the town. But with bombs being planted in the local temple, fingers are pointed at Abu Backer and before you know it, he is charged with treason and is accused of being a Pakistani ISI agent.
The elderly DADASAHEB then goes about to save his son from the clutches of the law and goes all the way up to the President. But it is when the President too rejects the appeal that everything is lost and Abu Backer is to be hanged.
But it is when the father returns with his son's body back to his home that the absurd twist of the movie takes place and from there it is the usual masala where the true culprits are found out and brought to justice.
Once again the twist that director Vinayan brought about is completely absurd and nonsensical. And then even the people who emerges as the true villains are purely unbelievable.
Vinayan must have certainly brought out decent down-to-earth movies but here he too falls for the box office pressures. The storyline is just crammed and if he thinks that anyonhe should take this movie seriously ought to think again!
