Honey Bee 2.5 Review & Rating
Despite the mixed reviews of its prequel ‘Honey Bee 2’, the makers have gone ahead and made ‘Honey Bee 2.5’ introducing Asif Ali’s brother Aksar Ali to the Malayalam cinema. Living up to everyone’s expectations, the film hits the right chord. The 107-minute long film traces the journey of an aspiring actor in an entertaining way. Askar impresses with his performance and so does the female lead, Lijomol.
Asif Ali's brother, Askar Ali has got the looks. But when it comes to acting, he has miles to go before one could call him a fine actor.
But in many parts, the movie is an uninspiring one. While the scenes which shows the set of 'Honey Bee 2' are engaging and interesting, the actual story of the movie is dull and trivial as it can be.
Final Verdict: A bare one-time watch.
