Innocent and his son (Dileep) are living in Ithirikandam village just like friends. People considered them immensely rich even while they are going through tough times. They were looked upon with envy by Sasankan (beautifully played by Asokan) and many others. The story then goes into a Panchayath election and all that fuss which was not at all needed for the film. How ever that sequence brought some comedies. Later Pappy and Appachan breaks. How they unite forms the crux of the story.
The titling of the film was extremely promising. There are good comedies. But the film dawdles after the first half hour or so. The actor who played the character Kuttappy has done extremely well. Kavya Madhavan marks her return as Dileep's heroine through this film.
The camera is disappointing with a brownish tone which doesn't match with the story's humor feel. Editing could have been made better. The fights are over inflated. The final portion of the film is handled in a naive manner. The climax showcases poor creativity and unfolds in the usual way. The final explanation of mysteries in the movie is drawn out.
Pappy Appacha couldn't guarantee what CID Moosa has done for Johny Antony. A sleeper hit.
You leave theatre with lot of unanswered questions like, why Innocent tells others that his son is responsible for sword cutting him and how does he realizes the truth in the end. Who was trying to hurt Kavya in front of church?
Length of the movie is 2 hours 45 minutes which surpasses all standards. If the script was modified enough to bring out the movie at 2 hours it would have worked. The film had the potential to become a hit. The story, script, dialogue and direction were all done by Mammas. When the same person is doing all this no one could guide and he won't know where the script is overwritten until the film's release. With more maturity the director can bring enjoyable films. Heavy reliability on commercial elements wonât make a film good or successful. Lately Dileep's selection of movies are not working.
