Bavuttiyude Namathil is all about Bavutty (Mammootty) who is working as a driver to a rich family of Sethu (Shankar Ramakrishnan) and Vanaja (Kavya Madhavan). Bavutty is more than a driver to the family being a caretaker to one and all in the family. Noorjahan (Rima Kallingal) is a regular visitor to Vanajas house as tution teacher for vanaja’s kids. Bavutty being an orphan have a soft corner to Noorjahan as she is from a poor family. Suddenly Satheeshan (Vineeth) comes to Vanaja’s life with some motives. The movie deals with how Bavutty gets this situation resolved and gives an answer to the question “who is Bavutty”?
The Movie is simple light hearted and feel good with an entertaining first half and a serious second half which give importance to the life of Bavutty.
G.S Vijayan has directed this movie well giving great importance to the acting section. Ranjith’s script is not up to the mark of “pranchiyettan” or “Indian Rupee” but something above “Spirit” is there and it had its moments. Cinematography by Manoj Pillai is an ordinary one as he hardly had any chance to show up his skills. Music by Rafeeq and Shahbaz also felt ordinary apart from the title song. The editing section seems fine.
In the acting section Mammootty have given a good performance. His ability to handle slangs with simplicity is evident from the movie. Kavya Madhavan gave a good performance equalling her best performance till date. Vineeth appears in an interesting role, he gave a different dimension to the character Satheeshan. Harisree Asokan given a different get up does all justice to the role which makes it one of his best performance. Other actors like Shankar, Kaniha ,Rima ,Sudheesh and rest of the cast Have given a good performance.
GS Vijayan makes a comeback through Bavuttiyude Namathil. And the wait for a genuine hit for Mammootty should be over. Ranjith should continue his dream run through this simple light hearted movie.
“BAVUTTIYUDE NAMATHIL IS SIMPLE, LIGHT HEARTED AND FEEL GOOD MOVIE FILLED WITH REALLY GOOD PERFORMANCE FROM ALL THE LEAD ACTORS WHICH MAKES IT WATCHABLE TWICE”
