Megastar Mammootty’s family comedy entertainer Thoppil Joppan was released all over India on October 7 and is pitted against the over hyped Mohanlal-starrer Pulimurugan.
The Johny Antony directorial, in which Mammootty plays the role of an Achayan (name used to call Christian men in Kerala) has been making headlines ever since the movie started rolling. The actor has made a mark in similar roles many times before in movies like Kottayam Kunjachan, Johny Walker, Oru Maravathoor Kanavu and Nasrani among others.
Thoppil Joppan is the production venture of Grand Film Corporation and is expected to make a tremendous opening day business owing to the fabulous fan following Mammootty enjoys throughout the country. Trade analysts expect it to break the opening day collection of the megastar’s action thriller Kasaba, which had earned a gross amount of Rs 2.43 crore on the first day from Kerala.
Thoppil Joppan doesn’t have a strong story to narrate. But, the writer and the director have tried their best to make a neat entertainer from the available prospects. The love track in the film works pretty well and you won’t get bored at any point of time.
Fans of Mammootty would be expecting some mass scenes and there are two or three sequences, which has a mass background. Apart from that, the film is an entertainer with a realistic touch and won’t question the logic of the viewers.
