In Kunchako Boban's much awaited 'Allu Ramendran', the actor's appears in a never-seen-before avatar. The film directed by Bilahari is about how an ordinary driver in the police force named Ramendran came to be known as 'Allu Ramendran'.
There is a funny story behind his ‘Allu’ nickname. Allu is the slang for a sharp pointed nail used to burst tyres.
Ramendran, who was leading a happy life, suddenly gets targeted with back-to-back flat tyres putting his job at stake.
His family mocks him and the society doesn't respect him anymore.
He's been nicknamed 'Allu Ramendran' and he gets irritated whenever someone calls him that.
The person behind all this damage doesn't come to the fore and so it is a do-or-die situation for Ramendran.
In the film, Kunchako Boban comes out of his usual comfort zone of romance into a serious short-tempered character.
The film is laced with ample comedy by Salim Kumar, Dharmajan Bolgatty and Hareesh Kanaran. Sreenath Bhasi, who makes a brief appearance, also plays a vital role.
Aparna Balamurali appears as Ramendran's sister named Swathi. Chandini Sreedharan acts as Ramendran's wife Viji.
The music by Shaan Rahman provides a celebratory mood to film especially the song 'Puncture..Puncture'.
Neeraj Madhav who appears in a guest role in the song 'Ethaatha Komabanedaa' impresses with his dance moves.
The 135-minute film, which is bankrolled by Ashiq Usman, is primarily humorous but it also has a few mass elements because of the lead character's nature.
Though the thread of the story, written by Gireesh A D, Sajin Cherukayil and VineethVasudevan, is wafer-thin, the movie ensures that the viewers are glued to their seats.
Overall, it is a tale with romance, comedy, suspense, action, drama, many flat tyres and a hell of a lot of fun.
