Review

Lailaa O Lailaa is a romantic thriller, which stars Mohanlal in the lead role. The movie, directed by Joshiy, stars Amala Paul in the female lead. Suresh Nair pens the script. Lailaa O Lailaa is produced by Santhosh Kottayi, Bijou Anthony, and Preetha Nair, under the banner Finecut Entertainments.

Cast And Performances

Mohanlal, who plays Jayamohan aka Jai, plays his part to near perfection. The actor’s exuberant performance doesn’t save the movie. Amala Paul completely fits in the role Anjali and shares a good chemistry with Mohanlal. But the actress has nothing much to do in the movie. Sathyaraj brilliantly portrays Shaheed Khadar. Joy Mathew disappoints with the cliched side-kick role. It is time for the actor to try something different. The supporting cast including Rahul Dev, Junaid Sheikh, Ashwin Mathew, Vijay Menon, Kiran Raj, Sreerag Nambiar, Abhijith Paul, Remya Nambeesan, Kainaat Arora and, Anjali Upasana, are fine in their roles.

Script And Direction

Popular Bollywood scenarist Suresh Nair makes his Malayalam movie debut with Lailaa O Lailaa. Despite the initial hype, the scenarist completely fails to impress with the loosely-packed screenplay, which is based on a boring plot. The movie impresses with the comparatively better first half, which is rich with the racy visualization, romance, and high voltage action sequences. But the second half totally disappoints with the irritatingly cliched twists and a highly predictable climax. It is the third consecutive disappointing venture of the veteran filmmaker Joshiy. The director proves that he is still young to direct a perfect thriller movie, the poor screenplay badly affects his craft. We hope the hitmaker will wisely choose his future projects and come back in full swing soon.

Technical Aspects

S Lokanathan’s cinematography perfectly creates the ambiance for a romantic thriller, with the brilliant visualization. Editing by Shyam Sasidharan fails to meet the standards, as the 2 hours 50 minutes long movie has a lot of unwanted scenes, which have helped only to increase the duration.

Songs And Background

Score The songs composed by Gopi Sundar fails to meet the expectations. But the National Award winner scores with the decent background score, which perfectly blends in with the situations.

Verdict

Yet again, a terrorism based romantic action thriller which will largely test your patience.
