Cinema Company is the second film directed by Mamas, the first being Dileep starrer Papppy Appacha. The film boasts of some talented fresh faces, but that's about it. Though the idea of a group of dreamy eyed youngsters coming together to make a film is interesting, the script (penned by Mamas himself) has nothing new to offer. The twists and turns that Mamas introduces is extremely irritating.
The first half drags endlessly, making us wonder what the director is trying to drive at. The plot picks up in the second half, but seems very predictable as you know how exactly the film will end!
Visuals by Jibu Jacob is good. The "Thick Rap" that is being played while the end titles start rolling is extremely irritating.
Cinema Company revolves around four people Panicker (Sanjeev), Paulachan (Basil), Fazal (Badri) and Paru (Sruthi) who meet at an International Film Festival and become good friends. Each one is blessed with a unique ability and so the four friends decide to make a movie. While Faiasal is a very good writer, Panikar is extremely interested in becoming a film director. Parvathy loves music and Polachan is keen on becoming an actor. The foursome call themselves 'Cinema Company'.
Faisal loves a girl named Roshni, whose father Varghese (Lalu Alex) decides to produce a film with the four friends in mind. Some incidents tear their friendship apart. What happens next? Will the four friends be able to resolve their differences and finish making a film, as they had always wanted? Watch Cinema Company to know.
Among the debutantes, Basil seems most promising. Most of the actors were good in parts, but was not consistent in their performance. Lalu Alex and Kottayam Nazir did their part well as usual. Baburaj is funny as always and his comedy timing is perfect.
Watch Cinema Company only if you have nothing better to do!
