Hotel California Malayalam Movie Details & Review

Hotel California is an action comedy film written by Anoop Menon and directed by Aji John. It is about five individuals from different backgrounds and unknown to each other who reach  Nedumbasserry Airport, Kochi and are clubbed together by a person called Airport Jimmy for some reason.The persons who are to meet each other get shuffled and the confusion that arises is presented humorously in 'Hotel California'.The five persons are :
  • Prem Sagar,Super star Actor
  • Rafeeq a body guard from Dubai
  • Arun Singh,a Business man
  • Lakshman Prasad,Engineer of Kochi Metro
  • Another young man
The film's airport scenes in Kerala were shot in Cochin International Airport and shots inside aeroplanes at a cost of Rs.60,000 per hour.This was necessary since the film's story unfolds in the business class of the plane.

Cast : Jayasurya, Anoop Menon, Honey Rose, Maria Roy and Aparna Nair.

Direction : Direction looks subdued to the interests of the stars Anoop Menon and Jayasurya,which is self-promotion,validating their previous works,mocking the detractors and stylisation.Though the confusion drama reminds of many of the Priyadarshan movies,it is nowhere near them.

Story/Script : Is it a spoof ?.Is it a confusion drama ? Neither,but has elements of both the genre,though doesn’t fit completely as either.At times you feel that even the writer is confused .But to be fair to the writer,there are  laughs in between to keep you engaged,sometimes but out of toilet humour,sometimes otherwise.

Acting : Anoop Menon and Jayasurya concentrates on their stylisations,primarily Jayasurya and succeeds in it.There is nothing much in the movie which challenges their acting capabilities.Female leads are okay in what they have to do.Yester-year actor Sankar justifiedly walks away with whistles and claps after a long time and Joju who did the role of the Commissioner is a scream.

Music : Good Melody by Shaan.BGM is loud at places presumably to make a comic effect,works in parts.

Camera/Visual Effects : Cinematography  correlates and syncs correctly with the sequences though no special effort is seen.

Choreography/Stunts/Others : No choreography,stunts good enough for a comic confusion caper.

Overall : An attempted brainless laughathon which succeeds to some extent,at times with the help of toilet jokes and at times otherwise. Expected flop-average.
