Many stars, poor show

Christian Brothers Malayalam (U/A) Cast: Mohanlal, Suresh Gopi, Dileep, Sharath Kumar, Kavya Madhavan, Lakshmi Rai Director: Joshiy

True, too many cooks spoil the broth. Despite having the luxury of actors like Mohanlal, Suresh Gopi, Dileep and Sharath Kumar together in the movie, Christian Brothers turns out to be a disappointment.

Christian Brothers is about retired Army officer Palomattathu Varghese Mappila (Saikumar) and his sons Christy (Mohanlal) and Joby (Dileep). Contrary to his dreams, dealing with underworld, Christy becomes a highly paid informer in Mumbai, while Joby, sent abroad to study Theology, falls in love with the Home Minister’s daughter (Kavya Madhavan), and eventually takes the gun to settle scores with his sister’s murderer. Joseph Vadakkan (Suresh Gopi), a strong-willed police officer, also joins the bandwagon. Sarath Kumar with his unique gestures adds vigour to the star-studded show. Kavya Madhavan, who stars opposite Dileep and Lakshmi Rai, lover of Mohanlal help bind the many subplots. The pretty sisters of Christian brothers, Kaniha and Lakshmi Gopalaswamy make their presence felt. The film, heavily depending on the star power, is average entertainment.
