What’s there in this film?.
Halal Love Story (2020), directed by Zakariya Mohammed who is well known for his commercially successful film Sudani from Nigeria (2018).
The one-line story is, An orthodox school teacher wants to direct a good movie that can watch with family and children, so the story is told in a humorous style with the obstacles he encounters.
We know that you can feel the reality of the characters in all Malayalam films, this film Halal Love Story (2020) also had that from the starting itself. director Zakariya has done a good job at this compared to the comedy.
Sharafudheen, Whatever the hero Indrajith is in the story, we can say that Sharafudheen is the hero of the film. Appealing performance with lightweight funny bits.
Next up is Soubin Shahir, It’s been a while but he proves his presence in the film with his funniness as a sound recordist.
Joju George as Siraj, favourite character in the film. He drew us to the emotional scenes of that father and daughter.
Compare to Hero Indrajith Sukumaran heroine Grace Antony did a good job in this film, that’s my thought.
There are some funny scenes in the film, though a little funny, not so much.
Although the story seems to be weak, director Kumar’s realistic storytelling gives audience the satisfaction of a good family film.
What’s not there in this film?.
The story seemed a bit mediocre, so I fell asleep watching the movie for a while.
What I don’t like about the film is the hero character, we know that Indrajit Sukumaran is a good actor but could have been a little better in this film.
Parvathy Thiruvothu arrival in the film may have surprised us a little, but the character he is coming for has wasted our expectation.they just used Parvathy Thiruvothu as a marketing material for the film.
While some of the comedy scenes in the film make us laugh for a bit, all the others only make us sleepy.
Although a lot of famous faces were cast in the film, the film was not worth much.you will also say the same after watching the movie, this is for sure.
It fits Grace Antony and Joju George.
Because of their above-average performance.
The two, who belong to one muslim organization, aspire to make a good family film for the sake of the family audience. Thus they ask for the approval of everyone in their organization and get it.
But the film needed actors, the director showed theatrical actors he had, But they chose the real husband and wife to star in this film. This is how they chose the hero and heroine. The hero does not act properly in the film due to the old mental distress on the heroine.
After this how they took that film and how the hero realized his mistake is a full story.
Halal Love Story (2020) only for Orthodox guys who love to watch the boring dramatic simple movies, this my opinion about the whole film.
Halal Love Story (2020) movie rating:
3/5 – Still could have been nicer (by Movie Laundry).
One time watchable for a family audience.
Overall pros and cons.
Sharafudheen and Soubin Shahir funny bits.
Grace Antony performance.
Joju George emotional scenes.
Hero Indrajith Sukumaran could have acted even better.
