One of the Poorly Scripted Movies
When we think of Rajasenan movies,first thing that comes to our mind is a string of successful comedy movies with Jayaram in lead. Movies such as Meleparambil Aanveedu,Ayalathe Adheham,C.I.D Unnikirishnan couldn't be classified as a sort of classic films ever for the depth of their stories but would always be remembered for its light hearted, natural fun and clean comedies mostly related with the common people we see next door in our life on a daily basis without the sort of double meaning jokes or mimicry currently disguised as comedy movies.
But its not the case with Swapnam Kondu Thulabharam. To be frank the basic plot for the movie was a good one but didn't had necessary ingredients to be successful commercial movie. The story is basically of two brothers Vishnu(Suresh Gopi) a professor,soft spoken,academic,loving brother and caring son for his parents (Janardhanan and SreeVidhya) and having all sorts of virtues which can be associated with a good man and Aniyankuttan(Kunchako Boban) a fun loving college student and enjoying his life.But Aniyankuttan somehow believes that there always has been a partiality shown towards him by his parents while sharing love. He isn't preferred over his brother for inaugurating the new showrooms opened by the family and even partiality while sharing sweets in another occasion by giving in a much smaller glass than his brother. All this might seem to be curious for audience for having grudge over his own brother but somehow makes part of the story. The movie isn't devoid of usual heroines, though faulty scripting doesn't give them enough prominence in movie. Srividhya(Prabhavathi)a college student studying in the same college as of Aniyankuttan is having a crush on Vishnu for a long time and tries every way to get his love and even gets closed as a sister with Anniyankuttan to get close to her love Vishnu. Kalyani(Nandana),Anniyankuttans another college mate who has crush on Anniyankuttan, but somehow ignored by Anniyankuttan. The turning point in the movie comes when Anniyankuttan, who believes that Srividhya is in love with him finds out that she has been loving Vishnu and even assumes that Vishnu has, as usual taken away his happiness. He even assumes that he is an adopted child and that's why he has been ignored and devoid of all happiness.His revenge towards Vishnu and the Vishnu efforts to get back his brother forms the rest of the movie proceedings and climax.
The movie in no way can be called an entertainer and could be termed as boring to a certain extent due to its faulty scripting.Talented actor like Jagathi was totally wasted with his character and his comical situations in the movie where short of bringing laugh to the audience. Janardhanan and Sreevidhya tried to give their best with the space given to them in the movie.The songs by Ouseppachan though not of his usual repute, were on an average. The pick of the lot would be Kingini Poove...
I wouldn't recommend this movie for even one time watching, rather recommend the old movies of the same director such as Meleparambil Aanveedu,Ayalathe Adheham,Vardhakya puranam,Sreekrishnapurathe nakshatrathilakam.Diliwalarajakumaran.... if you wish to spend almost 2 hrs for a standard clean comedy movie
