Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi review: "Kudos to the cast & crew for their sincere effort!!!"

Ever since the promos of "Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi" or NPCB has been beaming on the screens, there has been a great deal of anticipation after all it was touted as the first road movie to release in Malayalam. With Samir Tahir calling the shots along with the casting of the successful duo of Dulquer-Sunny Wayne, it should make for an interesting prospect. The question is whether Hashir's script can do justice to the hype???

 NPCB is basically the journey of two youngsters, Kazi (Dulquer) & Suni (Sunny Wayne) from "God's own Country" to "Switzerland of the East" (Nagaland), in search of Kazi's love, Assi (Surja Bala Hijam). The film tracks the happenings during the journey & the events which led to Kazi taking up this jaunt. Though he had initially decided on embarking alone, his long time confidant & close buddy Suni sticks onto him just as he had done over the years & so begins their adventure on their mean machines. 

 Samir Tahir's credentials as a cinematographer is well documented but with "Chappa Kurish", he has shown that he has it in him to don the role of the director with ease. First & foremost, he has to be commended for his guts to try something different rather than resorting to the same old cliches. Secondly, he has packaged it really well with breath taking visuals by Girish Gangadharan & equally apt music by Rex Vijayan, both of which conveys more than dialogues. Hashir Mohammad has come up with a decent script but I felt it could have been a much better second half as it lags quite a bit & doesnt quite do justice to their hard work.

With each passing movie, Dulquer is slowly & steadily cementing his place in the industry with his own efforts. Over here as well, he has done a good job along with Sunny Wayne, who brings in the light moments with his witty one liners. The soul of the film is undoubtedly, the sizzling chemistry that the two share with each other. Surja Bala Hijam is a well known Manipuri actress, who has done a decent job along with Dhirtiman Chatterjee, Joy Mathew etc.

Verdict: Among the films which has released for this Eid, this is least likely to cater to the families. The collections of this film will depend entirely on the young crowd, but from what I see it should be able to make a mark. It will definitely spruce a new crop of bikers just as "Classmates" inspired a lot of reunions. In short, give it a try after all such different efforts needs to be complimented!!!

Rating: 3/5
