Sibi Malayil’s Flash seems to have raced itself to the bottom of the pits among the December releases. So anything better than that should be watchable according to the reviewers. Raj Babu’s third movie seems to have the same class as his previous movies (B-grade, stupid etc) and so Prithviraj might have to wait for his coronation.
MovieBuzz writes the review in the format: story, A is good, B is not good mode
Pritviraj wants to be the next superstar of Malayalam cinema, especially after the sweet success of Chocolate! So he goes with his lucky mascot, giving English title Kangaroo, which is a B-grade formula film with comedy, action, family sentiments, dream songs picturised like in Tamil/Telugu films.Pritviraj has the making of the next superstar, and does a good job in holding the film together. Pritvi and Kavya make a nice romantic pair and the dream song is well shot. Why did Kaveri chose this stupid role of Nancy for her comeback? Jayasurya must have realized that to stay afloat he has to do the villain role. Kangaroo is a time-pass flick that should have been crisper as it drags in the first half. But nevertheless, go, have your share of fun.
Here is Rediff’s review which seems to be written by someone in LKG
Prithviraj does a good job. There is a kind of casualness in his approach, which was missing previously. Kavya Madhavan looks stunning. Kavery, who has made a comeback with this film, gets noticed as the unwed elder sister. Jayasurya seems to be establishing himself as the villain in Malayalam films.On the whole, Kangaroo could have worked out as a family entertainer if it had been well-edited. Now, it simply tests the viewers’ patience.
