Aavesham (2024). 2h 35m

“I donu0026#39;t wish to write a detailed, eloquent review for a film that only tries to present itself as a pure, no-holds-barred entertainer with just the right doses of everything (save for a romance). The character sketch of Ranga, along with an insane range of unpredictable emotions, is safe in the hands of FAFAA. He embodies the adorable, fun-loving thug with a penchant for violence (although heu0026#39;s under oath not to inflict any himself) like no other performer can, at least in Malayalam cinema. Weu0026#39;ve seen him play solemn, serious protagonists with consummate ease, but Aavesham gifts him the opportunity to fully embrace his zany side. If his foray into Tamil and Telugu cinema eventually led to him signing up for such an unhinged role in Malayalam, then Iu0026#39;m all in for those decisions.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot can be summed up in two or three lines, but director Jithu Madhavan is adept at keeping the proceedings tremendously enjoyable. As a result, we get a well-cooked mix of terrific action blocks, plenty of laugh-out-loud moments (major credit to Sajin Gopu), and even a little unexpected emotional depth to the protagonist. Sushin Shyamu0026#39;s songs and score are every bit an essential ingredient, without which, the mass moments would lack the necessary knock-out punch. The three guys who tag along with FaFaa also manage to hold up their end of the bargain, and their exchanges especially in the latter half, left me in splits. There are occasional signs of the screenplay running out of storytelling steam, but the fun factor never takes a dip. Once in a while, Malayalam cinema needs an injection of packaged entertainers like Aavesham where you slip into your most comfortable sitting position, clapping and hooting at the antics of an electrifying FaFaa.”
