Punyalan Private Limited Review & Rating
Ranjith Sankar-Jayasurya duo's 'Punyalan Private Limited' which is a sequel to their 2013 movie 'Punyalan Agarbathis' brings back the struggling entrepreneur Joy Thakkolkaran along with his peers including Greenu Sharma, and Abhaykumar. This time Joy Thakolkaran has come up with the new venture of purified water in tetra-packets. And like always, his path is full of obstacles. How Joy Thakkolkaran overcomes the hurdles and deals with the issues forms the crux of the movie.
'Punyalan Private Limited' follows a similar storyline to its prequel. But what makes the movie stand out from its first part is the way it shows the light on some of the social issues relatable to everyone and at parts, shifts to the angle of a social satire. Even if the movie has some lengthy dialogues, it sounds credible and syncs well with the situation. Ranjith Sankar has done a good job in scripting the movie and the dialogues without squeezing in too much drama for the sake of it.
Jayasurya has brilliantly reprised his role as Joy Thakkolkaran. The actor has effectively pulled of his lengthy dialogues and serious airs without going overboard with it. Aju Varghese, Sunil Sugathada and Sreejith Ravi who reprised their respective roles from the prequel have also done their parts equally well. The rest of the cast including Dharmajan, Guiness Pakru and Vishnu Govindan has also delivered a commendable performance in the movie.
While 'Punyalan Private Limited' does not jostle the viewer with too much nonsense, some of the proceedings in the movie are hard to believe. However, it wouldn't nudge one to hair-split too. Music director Anand Madhusoodhan, cinematographer Vishnu Narayan, and editor V Sajan have done a fine job true to the movie and its genre.
Final verdict: A simple entertainer, a decent sequel and a commedable attempt!
