Njan Prakashan

Brilliant rip roaring Malayalam comedy movie “Njan Prakashan” starring Fahadh Faasil, Sreenivasan among others.

Prakashan (Fahadh Faasil) has studied as a male nurse but is reluctant to work as one in Kerala where his status will be felt. He cooks up excuse to somehow go abroad. He meets his old flame Salomi (Nikhila Vimal) who is apparently working as a nurse in Germany and that sets him up with a crooked plan.

He is fleecing Salomi not knowing that she is also working on him diligently to somehow get abroad. The crooked game gets exposed when she goes abroad and marries a German citizen there. Dispirited Prakashan has cheated on many including Sreenivasan to get that money and has to repay.

Here the movie takes a turn from comedy to tragi comedy with Prakashan entrusted with the nursing of a 10 year old girl who is suffering from rare form of disease for which there is no cure, apparently. I guess this happens only in movies. Anyway, the transition to tragi comedy is quite smooth. Anyway Prakashan gets cosy with another girl in that neighbourhood, but the tragedy comes in between.

Absolutely masterful acting by Fahadh Faasil, he lights up the movie entirely on his own shoulders. The female characters, Nikhila Vimal and Anju Kurian are cute and reasonably well acted. Good to see KPAC Lalitha in a senior role and of course Sreenivasan in his usual trade mark style of acting. Brilliant movie to watch, IMDB 8/10
