Review :

Monsoon Mangoes is about D P Pallickal (an American Malayali) who dreams to be a renowned director.He is mocked by the people (including his family) around and his father takes him to a psychiatrist, which backfires.DP ends up losing his job as his obsession affects his work.Yester-year popular bollywood actor, who now basks in the past glory and is a drunkard comes to live nearby.DP convinces him after some difficulty to wrok together.There are lighter moments in the movie like the commercial pressure to illogically insert an advertisement to balance the financial woes.But as the premise is the late nineties, it doesn’t match with the time period,since such advertisement culture got popular in the mid 2000’s.

On the acting side,Vijay Raaz is convincing in his role,Fahad is good in the expressions,but hardly looks an American Malayalee at any point of the time.Other actors do an okay job.The cinematography is very good and the color tone gives the film a retro feel.

Overall : Nothing great,a few laughs at the most
