Varthakal Ithuvare movie Directed by newcomer Manoj Nair, Varthakal is a family-friendly
comedy thriller set in the 90s and also features Vinay Forrt, Nedumudi Venu, Nandhu, Mamukoya, Saiju Kurup, and Alencier Ley. Debutant Abhirami Bharghavan is playing the female lead. Siju Wilson plays the role of a police constable and the story revolves around a robbery case. Claimed to be a tribute to the 90’s Malayalam cinema, Eldho Issac has roped in as the cinematographer. Sreejith Nair is the editor and MejjoJoseph is handling the music. Varthakal Ithuvare is bankrolled by Biju Thomas and Giby Parackal
under the banner of Lawson entertainment. Malayalis still like to watch the nostalgia-induced rustic films from the 90s and even today, there are many attempts on the big screen to bank on this interest. Varthakal Ithuvare,’ in the first half, comes across as such a film, which is at best the stretched version of a Doordarshan TV serial.
A gold chain goes missing from a house in Pallippuram village. The policemen in the local station also doubt that a new Naxalite is in town. The cops question many, but who is the real culprit in the chain stealing case? The storyline of the Manoj Nair directorial, which is 121 minutes long, is feeble. It starts very slowly and continues at the same pace. It also seems to have many pointless subplots and shabby romance
angles. The absence of a bonafide storyline is the main problem of the movie. The script also gives no scope for any actors, including Vinay fort and Siju Wilson to showcase a solid performance.
