The stars, both the ones up in the sky and down on earth have been cruel to Dileep. The twinkle twinkle little star messed up with the release date of July 4 and it was released on July 5 and it exploded like the brain of a Vinayan movie spectator. Down to earth star Meera threw her tantrums and one such tantrum hit Dileep and Calcutta has not made any News. Thus Dileep has been reeling under a dry spell for about six months like Malayalees on a prohibition day.
Finally in December a new Dileep movie is going to be released. This time he has not chosen any auspicious day like Bakrid or Christmas but a rather uneventful day like Dec 14. Remember that scene in Lagaan where the villagers dance around seeing the rain clouds (Ghanana Ghanana song); for Dileep fans it is such a moment when they eagerly await the release of Romeo. With this movie, Dileep returns to his strengths – mimicry, oops, we mean comedy. In the movie he plays Manu, a male home nurse who romances Vimala Raman and Samvritha Sunil at the same time.
The script writers Rafi-Mercartin know one story, which is basically mixup of people and circumstances and they have mixed it very well in movies like Thenkasi Pattanam and Punjabi House. Then there is their guru Rajasenan who basically knows to make one type of movie. When all these single act ponies get together for a movie, the resulting story line can be predicted. Then after watching movies like Alibhai, Paradesi and Rock’n’Roll everyone could use a little laugh, even if it is the predictable one.
