Varane Avashyamund(2020)

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A decent Light hearted movie !!

“Varane Avashyamund” revolves around a few of the occupants of an apartment in Chennai. We have Neena (Shobhana) a divorced woman who is trying for the post of a French teacher, her daughter Nikitha (Kalyani) who is trying desperately for an arranged marriage with a perfect match, a short tempered and unmarried Ex.military man Major Unnikrishnan (Suresh Gopi), and Bibeesh (Dulquer Salmaan) and his family who has just shifted to the apartment, as our main characters.

The story discusses the past and present of these 4 characters and how their concept of a relationship changes over time with different experiences in life. The story is presented in a pretty simple way with lots of funny incidents. Major Unnikrishnan visiting a psychiatrist (Johny Antony) to control his short-temperedness and the interactions between them were the best of those.

The visuals were beautiful and the songs were above average. Anoop Sathyan does well for a debutant, but I felt he had to a ‘unlearn’ a few things which he might have learned from his veteran father Sathyan Anthikkad. The melodramatic flash back of Bibeesh and his family, for example, didn’t do any good for the movie and was totally unwanted. Anoop, in one of his interviews said he had to wait two years for the date of Shobhana for the movie. But I never felt the movie had anything which challenges Shobhana as an actor, even though she does a brilliant job with whatever she had to do.

Dulquer Salmaan does his job well along with the veterans Suresh Gopi, Shobhana, and K.P.A.C. Lalitha. Urvashi as Dr.Sherli also chips in with a fine little cameo. Kalyani did brilliantly and handled her role with ease for a debutant. However, the most surprising performance came from Johny Antony, who showed great timing with his one liners and delivered the most enjoyable moments of the movie.

Even though a little under-cooked, “Varane Avashyamund” is a movie with a narration that has lots of funny events which will surely make it a decent one time watch!
