Rate of change of focus of the plot of the movie Bhaiyya Bhaiyya is directly proportional to blink of your eyes. Yes I am saying this because the film does not have a specific goal. Constructed with all the compartments of almost all the Benny P Nairambalam movies, Bhaiyya Bhaiyya is a flawed attempt from director Johny Antony to get back into the business. Except for those witty dialogues, Bhaiyya Bhaiyya just goes on and on without a destination.
Babu and Babu are brothers (not by blood). The elder Babu (Biju Menon) was adopted by younger Babu’s father from Bengal. Both Babu’s are very much attached to one another. Younger Babu is a labor supplier and the movie basically focuses on the journey of these brothers to Bengal for a purpose.
By this Bengali Babu title, I expected some elements in the film that are related to the recent development in our state were too many Bengalis are coming here for labor. But except for the job title of the character played by Kunchako Boban, there isn’t anything in the film that has any contemporary relevance. The script is a disjoint canvas where Benny P Nairambalam has written unbaked scenes taken from his own filmography. The romance reminded me of Marykkundoru Kunjaadu and Sound Thoma. Rest of the sequences was also somewhat familiar through many films we have seen in the past. Some scenes still doesn’t make any sense. And those climax chaos made me laugh at many points but if I rethink why those scenes were there? I have no idea!
On screen Kunchako Boban is okay as the younger Babu. Senior Babu played by Biju Menon was funny but that was kind of a used out idea (again Sound Thoma reference). Nisha Agarwal’s dubbing and facial expressions had no connection. Somewhat a better role for Vinutha Lal compared to her till date films. Dracula fame Sudheer may get more chances after this film. Suraj and Salim Kumar were nice. Nice performances from Shammy Thilakan, Vijayaraghavan and Thesni Khan. A lot of irrelevant characters are there in film.
Johny Antony doesn’t show any improvement in his making. A large portion of the movie is dull and the humorous section is isolated from the film. The script would have been a hit if the same actors presented it in any award shows or television comedy skits. Disappointing music and satisfactory cinematography. BGMs were really poor.
Bhaiyya Bhaiyya is a disappointing film that fails to utilize the hit combo of Kunchako Boban and Biju Menon. You may not want to leave the hall while watching it, but you may wonder what happened inside the hall after watching it. The rating is 2/5. The “switch off logic” disclaimer is a must for this movie.
