Feel good, clean romantic entertainer
This is another love story, which we have seen numerous times before. But, there is no pretension about it. In fact, in the first few minutes itself, the characters refer to watching "Bombay" movie about a Hindu-Muslim love story and state this would be similar to it, making a oblique reference to the sources of inspiration. That being said, the movie is surprisingly pleasant watch without any vulgarity, violence or needless sidetracks. Being a remake of Malayalam movie, we can see that the makers have tried to keep the spirit to the original.
The lead pair do their roles well with Walter playing the earnest Vinod who is trying to figure out his own feelings. He could have easily come out as a caricature, but due to some deft acting and careful characterization, the role retains some sense of normalcy. So, we have the lead for change, who doesn't have heroic gimmicks to win the girl. And then, on the opposite side, the girl who played Ayesha, shows a nice innocence, demureness and even her "rebel" aspect is also within the boundaries and not over the top. Good solid underplaying of the character.
The supporting act of Naseer and the Hero's friend , Inspector etc are able.
Technical aspects - Photography, Background score, Songs - work out well.
It's a nice feel good movie. Worth a watch.
