Thobama Review & Rating
Thobama, directed by debutant Mohsin Kassim, is touted to be a family-friendly entertainer revolving around three guys and their friendship. The movie stars premam actor Sharafudheen, Siju Wilson and Krishna Sanker in the title roles while rest of the cast includes newbie Punya Elisabeth, Premam fame Shabareesh Varma, and director Rafi among others. Thobama marks the first production venture of Premam director Alphonse Putharen and that exactly works as the USP of this small film which has nothing much to boast about. Well, small doesn't mean bad. Read Thobama review below to find out how the movie fares to be.
Thommi, Balu, and Mammu aka Manaf are three close friends with different backgrounds. Like a majority of youngsters, they have big dreams and an empty pocket. So the trio (Thobama, as they call themselves) tries their luck in minting some money in several easy ways and their pursuit of fortune sets them up with the lottery mafia. Things, however, didn't go as smooth as they expected and the rest of the movie is about their troubled times and how they stick to their plan.
Sharafudheen appears as Thommi while Siju Wilson plays the role of Balu and Krishna Sanker, Manaf. The trio delivers a convincing and handles the humor as well as sentiments perfectly well. Punya Elizebeth who is touted to be the leading lady of the movie has, in fact, nothing to do with the central plot and her role and performance is limited to being the love interest of Balu played by Siju Wilson. Shabhareesh Varma as a gangster member has done a decent performance.
Mohsin Kassim's Thobama turns out to be a decent, entertaining watch. It does have few good situational comedies, and jokes that make one laugh out loud. What the movie lacks is a strong storyline. And the absence of twists and turns in the plot makes it appear to be a drab affair. Interestingly, Alphonse Puthren's slow motion and different camera angles have found their way into his production venture as well. Rajesh Murugesan's music is different from his old works and is enjoyable.
Final Word: Thobama makes up for a one-time watch, all thanks to the entertaining performance of the lead actors and a few good jokes that keeps one from walking out of the theatre.

What To Expect From Thobama?
A Fun-Filled Entertainer That Appeals Youth
Thobama, according to the makers, is a fun-filled tale of friendship which revolves around three youngsters. And by the looks of it, the film would be kind of movies which easily connect with the youngsters who form a majority of the movie-goers in the state. Besides, the Premam trio Krishna Shanker, who appear in the lead roles of the film, has also triggered the expectations of a fun-filled entertainer. After Premam, the trio was seen in the movies Happy Wedding and Njandukalude Naattil Oridevela and has never failed to impress the audience with their screen presence. And it is very much likely that that would once again walk away with the show in Thobama.
The Launch Of Another Newbie To the Stardom
The leading lady of Thobama, Punaya Elizebeth, is a new face. It is already a talk of the town that this young newbie is going to make it big on the silver screen as actresses launched by Alphonse Puthren have always been favored by luck and stardom. And whether you believe it or not, Punya has all the prospects of joining that league headed by Sai Pallavi, Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameswaran pretty soon.
Some Impressive Music
Raghesh Murugesan, the music composer of Thobama, has some chartbuster songs to his credit. He has earlier collaborated with Alphonse Putharen for the movies Neram and Premam and is also noted for scoring the BGM of Action Hero Biju. Thobama, being a youth entertainer, is likely to have some impressive tracks by this music talent. The first song (Trip Song) released by the makers recently has indeed lived up to the expectations. And one can definitely look out for more.
Alphonse Puthren's Foray Into Production
The major highlight of Thobama is that it marks the debut of director Alphonse Puthren as a producer. It is also the reason behind the considerable hype the film is garnering from amongst the movie buffs despite being directed by a newcomer and having no big stars in the cast. The audience has pinned high hopes of Thobama as it is presented by the Premam director and considering the fanbase of Alphonse Putharen in the state, it wouldn't be surprising at all.
