The joining of Kunchako Boban and Shamili (Shalini’s sister) were the main factor to watch this on the first day itself and along with that, the songs and trailer give much hype and made me watch it first show itself. Debutant Rishi Shivakumar had written and directed. Cinematography by Kunjunni S. Kumar and Music is handled by Sooraj S. Kuruppu. In the banner of Achappu Movie Magic, ‘Valleem Thetti Pulleem Thetti’ is produced by Faizal Latheef.

‘Valleem Thetti Pulleem Thetti’ is set in a village in Palaghat. Vinaya Chandran is a Talkies operator in a C-class theater. the movie show case the conflict between two groups; Vinayan and his friends who belonged to one of the groups and Saiju Kurap and his friends in another group. His love interest Sridevi by the way belongs to the rival side and the problems faced by him to get her form the background of the story. Debutant director Rishi Sivakumar tries to present the pulse of a remote village and its villagers in a complete sense. Kunchacko Boban does the protagonist. Shamili, who has done many movies as a child artist is the heroine of Kunchacko Boban in ‘Valliyum Thetti Pulliyum Thetti’. Mia, Manoj K Jayan, Renji Panicker, Saiju Kurup, Sudheer Karamana, Sreejith Ravi also include the cast.
Debutant director Rishi Sivakumar tries to present the pulse of a remote village and its villagers in a complete sense but failed to impress the audience with a good fresh main plot and a non-lagging screenplay.
On to the Technical Side, along with Direction, Cinematography and Music were really nice, but failed in the script and screenplay section. the movie has nothing new to give other than some boring conflict scenes and a weak romantic plot. the Visualization of all those songs were really nice.
On to the Performance, Vinaya Chandran was safe in the hands of Chakochan with full energy level and much enthusiasm. Female Leas Shamili were nice, she had nothing more to do than to show off her beauty but the dubbing seems weird on some occasions. Krishna Shanker(Premam fame Koya) played as B Gagan and his performance was really nice and much better than all other persons in both of the gangs.
Sreejith Ravi and Aneesh G Menon(Lalettans Brother in law in Drishyam and state award winner Ameoba fame) were really too boring with their overacting.
Suresh Krishna as Bhagavan Menon Performed well in a negative role. Renji Panicker, Sudheer Karamana and Saiju Kurup were okay with their roles.
In the 146mins movie, the first half deals with the introduction of the village and their people in an entertaining way along with much serious and emotional second half with an unsatisfied climax.
Bottom Line: Valleem Thetti Pulleem Thetti has pluses in departments like direction, music and cinematography. But the writing needed a little more freshness and elegance.
Cinematography and Music.
Kunchako Boban were nice.
unfresh plot with a boring screenplay.
Verdict: An Average Family Entertainer.
Recommendation: if you watch it with zero expectation, you will get an average entertainer.
SouthIndianFilms Rating: 2.5/5.
