Bro Daddy Review – A Moderate Family Satire
Bro Daddy is a Malayalam movie directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran released on 26 January 2022 on Hotstar. The movie features Mohanlal, Prithviraj, Meena, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Lalu Alex and Kaniha as central characters. The film deals with family relations and sentiments. Mohanlal is like the pulse of the film. His role was energetic and quite engaging. Lalu Alex also did his part beautifully in this movie. The film is a clean Family comedy-drama but there is uncertainty about, does the movie managed to entertain the targeted audience. Mohanlal’s and Prithviraj’s Dad-Son combo scenes were quite appreciable.
The plot of the movie talks about a family whose life gets unexpected twists and turns. It deals with how a father becomes a brother and friend for his son and solves his problem as the film proceeds. The film has got mixed reviews. The main negative of the movie we feel is the duration. Some of the Cliche and Cringe scenes could be avoided. Moreover, the Film has got many promotions inside it which wrecks the decorum of the movie feeling. Soubin’s role was quite irritating and cringe. The climax also was a platitude.
Prithviraj’s Direction is decent, which is the main factor that makes this movie a watchable entertainer. The frames by Abinandhan Ramanujam was upstanding. The songs too didn’t have much effect on the movie but were catchy. The screenplay is also laudable. According to us, the film is a one-time watchable average flick. But the film would be accepted and liked by most family audiences.
