Ulakam Chuttum Vaaliban (2011) Review Aggregator
Is Jayaram back to square one? After a spate of reasonably successful films that had almost revived his star status, Jayaram seems to have gone the wrong way with his Onam release, Ulakam Chuttum Vaaliban. Critics do not sound pleased at all.
Nowrunning says this is a real bad sign: “UCV is the kind of film that Jayaram was seen in for a few years prior to ‘Veruthe Oru Bharya’ – films that used to come and leave without a whimper that had made his star status hit a rock bottom. Not a good sign, this!”
Sify calls it ‘not entirely bad’: “If you are patient enough to find the gags in between, UCV may be enjoyable, in parts. There is a smart storyline which would have been a better comedy, if it was written and made with more passion and intelligence. Even in the current form, it’s not entirely bad.”
Indiaglitz sounds disappointed: “What all are your expectations, when you are on to a film with Jayaram playing the sole hero. You expect to bump into our hero amidst financial difficulties, trying ways to find solace from his distress, finally landing into more troubles. Rajbabu’s ‘Ulagam Chuttum Vaaliban’ is another such tale with all that Jayaram ingredients, nothing more…nothing less.”
