Meri Awas Suno review: Jayasurya’s powerful performance saves a predictable storyline

MD Merajul IslamMay 13, 2022

Director Prajesh Sen and Jaysurya have collaborated on movies comparable to Captain and Vellam previously, which banked on power-packed performances. Meri Awas Suno follows an analogous path the place the viewers perceive the place the film is heading as soon as the central battle is revealed. The one saving grace is the protagonist’s efficiency.

The film follows the lifetime of RJ Shankar (performed by Jayasurya) who believes that his voice is his id. He hosts the prime-time present in his radio station and has a formidable fan following for his philosophical perspective on life, which he shares along with his viewers. Within the first half of the film, we meet Shankar and his household, consisting of his spouse and a son. The whole lot is okay in Shankar’s life when he loses his voice impulsively attributable to his chain-smoking. The remainder of the movie exhibits his psychological battle and his gritty wrestle to regain his voice. That is when Reshmi (performed by Manju Warrier), a speech therapist, enters his life. A carefree and energetic one who is at all times constructive about life, Reshmi helps Shanker to regain his voice.

Nevertheless, the movie begins dragging within the second half of the film. Jayasurya’s highly effective efficiency as RJ Shankar — his frustrations, emotional wrestle, and battle to regain his voice — varieties the movie’s crux. The restricted scope of the plot is elevated by Jayasurya’s efficiency, however even that can’t justify the film’s size for such a lean story line.

A few of the scenes within the film felt much like these of Captain, the place Jayasurya’s character Sathyan is proven helpless but decided to get again to enjoying soccer. The one distinction right here is Shankar right here is attempting arduous to regain his voice. The bulging of veins within the brow, the concern in his eyes — the whole lot reminds you of Sathayn from Captain.

The dialogues of the movies, which ought to have been life-affirming and constructive, lack depth and perception. Whether or not it’s RJ Shankar’s radio present initially of the film or Reshmi’s pep discuss within the later a part of the film, the dialogue by no means lifts off the bottom. The narrative is predictable and boring.

Manju Warrier once more performs a bubbly, constructive character, which is hardly a problem to an actor of her calibre. M Jayachandran’s melodies go properly with the temper of the film, however the movie itself feels stretched at two hours.
