Sound Thoma Review
Benny P Nairambalam is known for his majestic script which tickles the funny bones of the viewers. But ‘Sound Thoma’ could not travel in the perfect track as the script failed to impress the audience who kept much expectation over the movie. Vyskah’s Sound Thoma is a onetime watchable flick which can be enjoyed during this summer.
Even though Dileep sizzled in Kunjikoonan, Chandhu Pottu with exceptional characters, ‘Thoma’ who finds difficult to communicate with others too failed to do so with the spectators too. Dileep and Sai Kumar kept their presence alive on the screen with Dileep’s character shouldering the story of the movie. Sai Kumar took the audience in hands with his acting brilliance while Mukesh, Suraj, Dharman, Shajon, Nedumudi Venu, Joju, Vijayaraghavan and Reshmi Boban and Soja Jolly were seen in different roles.
The heroine Namitha Promod was much good in various costumes and gave a bright performance in the movie and the song sequences too. The tunes set by Gopi Sunder were not much satisfactory while comparing his brilliant work with Usthad Hotel. The predictable climax and poorly done action sequences kept the viewers hold their head down.
In short ‘Sound Thoma’ is recommended for those who are looking forward to spend this summer with their family at a holiday mood. So watch for Dileep and enjoy the movie with not many expectations.
