Christian Brothers - Another multistarrer to woo Malayalees
IndiaGlitz  

A movie with Mohanlal, Suresh Gopi, Dileep, Biju Menon, Sarath Kumar, Kavya Madhavan, Kahiha, Lakshmi Gopalswamy, Lakshmi Rai, Jagathy Sreekumar, Suraj Venjaramoodu, and Saikumar, scripted by Udhay Kishna-Siby K Thomas and directed by veteran Joshy. Don't check for the name of the megastar Mammootty here as we are not talking about the hit movie 'Twenty: 20'. This is the cast and crew list of the new movie under production in the title 'Christian Brothers'. Produced by AVA productions and Varnachithra big screen, this big budget multi-starrer is the most eagerly awaited flick for this Onam.

The movie hogged headlines from the very first moment of its launch, because of its multi-star cast and huge budget. Producers associations demanded to cut down the cost below three and half crores and to limit the shoot days and other related expenses which could never be realized for a film of such a scale. The shoot for the movie was indefinitely postponed in the month of November, due to these controversies. Anyhow, the association later had to revise its norms on making bigger films.

The movie as the title implies is all about a Christian family –the prestigious Palamattam Tharavadu, whose current heir, a patriotic Major Varghese and his two daughters and two sons. The eldest of them, Christy (Mohanlal) is a police informer working at Mumbai. Even no one in his home know what he is doing in Mumbai and brand him as a good for nothing son. His younger brother is Jojy (Dileep) who has already jumped out of seminary, to realize his love affair with a local girl. Varghese who has lost hope in his sons are now eager to marry off his daughters Jessy (Lakshmi Gopalswamy) and Stella (Kaniha), to some influential families. But all was not going well within the family as certain old enmities has sprout up to create havoc for Varghese and his dreams about a peaceful retired  life.

The scenarist Udhay Krishna-Sibi K Thomas has opted for a different style of storytelling this time, focusing on various characters one after another and then linking the stories together at a certain point of time. The several twists and turns in the story will change the shade of characters, as they may not be the same as movie progresses through events and viewpoints. In this big canvas Suresh Gopi and Sarath Kumar appear in key points as pivotal characters, who have a big say in the events portrayed.

The movie is cinematographed by Anil Nair, who is for the first time working with Joshy. Kaithapram has penned the lyrics while Deepak Dev is in charge of the music section. 'Christian Brothers' which is still under shooting will grace the theatres for this Onam.

Christian Brothers - Goes the 'Twenty:20' way
IndiaGlitz  [Saturday, March 19, 2011]

Ace scriptwriters Uday K Thomas-Sibi K Thomas and senior director Joshy has faithfully repeated their trademark recipes that made the big hit 'Twenty:20' for their new multistarrer 'Christian Brothers'. And evidently the movie has turned out into a power packed entertainer with plenty of thrills, songs and other masala fares.

The movie as expected presents its four heroes in their stylish avatars, voicing punchlines and engaging in well choreographed action sequences.

'Christian Brothers' has superstar Mohanlal as Christie alias 'Sherson', the elder brother of Jojy (Dileep), Jessy (Lakshmi Gopalaswamy) and Stella (Kaniha) who belongs to the wealthy and eminent Palamattam Tharavadu. Christie and Jojy but failed to be in the mould and interests of  their  famous father  Capt. Varghese Mappilai (Sai Kumar), the former turning into  a  police informer based in Mumbai, and the later opting out of priest hood after falling in  love with Meenakshi (Kavya Madhavan), the daughter of State home minister.

The movie doesn't take time for a safe landing with issues addressed from the minute one, ranging from deals of land mafia, murder of upright village officer Kochuthoma (Jagathy Sreekumar), and the opponents led by Thampy (Vijayaraghavan) and his sons, including the I PS officer (Biju Menon), the kidnapping of Meenakshi and much more.

The only problem with the movie seems to be that it has nothing ground breakable about its plot and also its length which extends to a little more than three hours. But Siby K Thomas and Uday Krishna have deftly handled the complicated plot most of the time, with twists after twists coming up in every twenty minutes, of which some are predictable. Though some of the tracks remind you of Hindi and Tamil thrillers, the immense experience of director Joshy in doing justice to vintage formulas, manages to pull it off to a safe entertainer. The later half appear a little dragging at times, though  the drama keeps you hooked and  viewers won't find the pace slackened in the most of the presentations.

The technical aspects are also fine with Anil Nair' making some good visuals and  Deepak Dev' churning in some good songs, though the one that pops up in the later half seems misplaced and unwarranted...

In the acting side, the movie is embellished with fairly good performances, though it may appear customary for the regulars of masala flicks. Mohanlal has a perfect commercial opening in the New Year as Christie, with all traits of a superhero and admirable mannerisms. His dialogue delivery and action are as usual, fine. The movie has everything for the Lal fans to celebrate, except for an average introduction.

The other star who impresses much is Sureshgopi, in his regular avatar like his role of 'Twenty:20'. Dileep repeats his  trademark act while Tamil star Sarath Kumar, though in a short role is effective. The heroines looks pretty but don't have much to do, though Kaniha appears to be the best among them. Sai Kumar, Vijayaraghavan, Suresh Krishna, Biju Menon, Devan and Jagathy Sreekumar are apt in their roles. Salim Kumar and Harisree Asokan try their best to create some fun but with limited success, while Suraj repeats his antics which fails to make the viewers merry.

'Christian Brothers' is a definite prescription for all lovers of heavy masala fares of Mollywood. At the box-office, 'Christian Brothers' will have a good opening  and may end up as 'more than a safer hit'  in days to come!
