The number from the movie, sung by Shreya Ghoshal has been in the YouTube trending charts since its release there. Meanwhile, a murder takes place, which has a bearing on his past. He gets all of these because the council organizing this program is impressed by his past heroics. Anoop Menon has for sometime stayed away from penning scripts following the allegations of including extra stuff that is not suitable for family viewing. There is a smart ploy that Anoop Menon had adopted while scripting? In between, Sura is smitten by the ample charms of a mystery woman on the phone. It's a tribute to the wives and mothers who are waiting or you back home, that comes from Anoop this time around, and even as the whole idea does sound poignant, the film takes the tough way out to drive home its point. If that is the kind of entertainment that you are looking forward to at the cinemas, go for this one.
Hype creates over expectations and movie does not meet it. One Time Watchable Flick , Go With Low Expectations!! The film had lot to make us entertained. He is a funny character and also had inferior complex which made his life not easy. So this time it's Dolphins Bar after Hotel California and Trivandrum Lodge. Suresh was at his comic best with Trivandrum slang and hilarious expressions and one liners. It does have its moments here and there, but hardly manages to convince the puzzled viewer of the credibility of the tale that it intends to tell.
The story was Simple and that simple story was presented with Elan. The Dolphins Bar is directed by Diphan and the story has been written by Anoop Menon. The movie starts off really well with a lot of confusing flashback sequences and grisly whodunit serial murder plots that make us surmise that we are in for some meaty suspense thriller but then takes diversions after the initial roll of credits to parallel subplots dealing romance, drama and some Lelam style monologues. On the whole Dolphins is a Good entertainer which will worth your Money and will be a different experience for all. There are the flashbacks that take a while to tell their tales, and a sub plot that includes a series of murders. One time watch without expectation.
Verdict: A thorough entertainer, which can solely be watched for the performances of Suresh Gopi and Kalpana. But has Odiyan lived upto expectations? Saiju Kurupu, Suraj Venjaranmood, Joju, Nandalal Krishnamoorthy and Irshad are seen playing other major roles. They find a temporary hope in Mandy a Dolphin which could be the companion for Winter they were looking for so long but that too eventually becomes a failure as they decide Mandy to be left to the sea as she would not adjust to Winter. They looked quiet realistic onscreen as a couple. There isn't much suspense in store, and it ends in haste as well. The film, starring Suresh Gopi, Anoop Menon, Kalpana and Meghana Raj in main roles, and a superb climax. It's also the kind of film that goes up in thin air, the moment you walk out of the theatres.
So this time it's Dolphins Bar after Hotel California and Trivandrum Lodge. It is worth a watch, at least for naughty jokes, outrageous lines and good execution. We get to see the traits of odiyan for the first time in the movie. Meghna raj looks pretty as Mridula while Kalpana delivers another exciting performance as kunju Vavachi. The screenplay which mishmashes different happenings with the life of Sura, are cleverly plotted, which keeps you engaged till the end.
When his astrologer suggests that Sura might meet with his end in the coming year, unless and until a woman intervenes, the man is perplexed. The rest of it is sheer cacophony, with droll one-liners and double entendres ruling the roost. Sura is an interesting character which finds fit with Suresh Gopi, though at times some may feel his trivandrum slang as a little overly done. Also the actors have great audience claps also deserves special mention. Meghna Raj stars opposite to Suresh Gopi in this movie.
Anoop Menon played the character of the best friend of Sura and he is a rich man as well as a singer. The Trivandrum slang does tend to go overboard at times, but it's a decent job from the actor without doubt. Morgan Freeman seems to be a useless addition here because He has nothing much to do except prepare a prosthetic tail for the poor Dolphin yet he delivers for what h is known for. He limits his social life to his close friends, they help him try to get out of this reclusiveness. This includes cookies from third party social media websites and ad networks. Movie uses simple line script is helps audience keep intresting with movie. The eagerness was due to two factors.
The atmosphere in the Bar scenes was terrific. The flash backs of Sura then unearths as episodes that interests most. Manju Warrier, who plays the female lead, will also appear in three avatars. Now, the entire movie meanders along with fractured scenes, all peppered with humour that is essentially about booze, sex or crime. Our Mission Movie watching experience has become a costly affair in India.
