Directed by Vijesh Panathur and Unni Vellora, the film also stars Nirmal Palazhi, Sudheesh and Pragya Nagra
Actor Dhyan Sreenivasan’s new comedy film Nadhikalil Sundari Yamuna is all set to release on OTT. The film, which hit the theatres on September 15, received positive reviews from audiences and critics alike, mainly due to its old-style comedy scenes and Dhyan’s performance. Helmed by debutant directors Vijesh Panathur and Unni Vellora, the film will be available to stream on HR OTT from October 20. The movie’s ensemble cast also includes actors Aju Varghese, Nirmal Palazhi, Nawas Vallikkunnu, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Aneesh Gopal. Pragya Nagra plays the female lead in the film, marking her Malayalam debut. Here are four reasons you must watch Nadhikalil Sundari Yamuna on OTT.
1. Old-style comedy
Nadhikalil Sundari Yamuna has a nostalgic feel to it, which will remind you of old comedy classics from directors like Sathyan Anthikadu and Priyadarshan. The humour flows naturally and the rural setting helps to create a sense of nostalgia for viewers. Some of the jokes in the second half of the film trigger a laugh riot.
2. The Aju Varghese-Dhyan Sreenivasan collaboration
Aju and Dhyan are known for their collaborative work in movies like Adi Kapyare Kootamani, Kunjiramayanam and Sachin. However, Nadhikalil Sundari Yamuna doesn’t have many scenes featuring them together, when compared to their previous projects. Instead, they are mostly at loggerheads in the movie, which is an interesting departure from their usual characters as friends.
3. Aju Varghese’s performance
Aju’s performance stands tall, compared to other actors in the movie. He plays a textile factory owner, who is desperate to get a bride. The audience has also appreciated Aju and Pragya’s chemistry in the film.
4. Dhyan Sreenivasan’s usual quirks
Dhyan is renowned for his portrayal of ‘loser’ characters in films. In Nadhikalil Sundari Yamuna, he is once again essaying a similar role that can induce laughter with his quirky mannerisms. The actor once again proves his ability to play rustic characters with perfection. Additionally, we can see his romantic side in the movie.
