Bineesh Dhamodaran is a chronic chain smoker. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say he inhales more smoke than air. And his habit has earned him a name amongst his friends and family; Theevandi. Despite his endless cigarette smoking and jobless state, he manages to marry the love of his life. However, things become hard for Theevandi Bineesh when he is left with no option but to kick his habit for his brother in law. The rest of the film is about the hilarious incidents that happen in his life and those around him.
The best thing about Theevandi is Tovino Thomas. The actor pulls off his character so effortlessly. There are sequences in which he enacted the teenage version of his character brilliantly with adequate emotions and perfect mannerisms. Samyuktha Menon, who plays Tovino's love interest also delivers a solid performance. Others including Suraj Venjaramoodu, Surabhi, and Saiju Kurup have done their roles convincingly well.
Theevandi comes with some enjoyable songs. The background score is also equally impressive. On the technical front, cinematographer Gautham Sanker and editor Appu Bhattathiri have done their jobs well. To sum up, Fellini makes a debut which is no short of an impressive work.
Final Verdict: Theevandi is a watch worthy film filled with good humor, occasional satire, and good music.
