Colours: Not a pleasant watch
Paresh C Palicha | January 30, 2009
Director Raj Babu's latest Malayalam film Colours has been promoted as a Dileep starrer. But it's in fact, not a Dileep film, as the actor makes his appearance on the screen only seconds before the interval. Colours really belongs to actress Roma.
Pinky leaves her education midway and makes a television programme called Colours, where she plays pranks with people on the streets and records their reactions with a hidden camera.
The film has a couple of subplots like the pilferage of costly drugs from the hospital's store, and an unbearable comedy track with Cochin Haneefa and Harisree Asokan. There's another subplot of Dileep, playing a navy officer Sanjay Nath, who is the girls' childhood friend. To complicate matters, he falls in love with one sister when the elders want him to get married to the other.
Screenplay by V C Ashok is intriguing at first but then up a predictable route.
Colours seems to be colour saturated and not a pleasant watch.
