After the Blockbuster “Drishyam”, Jeethu Joseph is back with a very simple movie, “Life Of Josutty”, if you went with over expectations, surely you may get disappointed . Because as the tagline says , there is no twist purely life of a village especially Josutty’s life.
Storyline
its an autobiography tracking the thirty years of a person. Jeethu Joseph after Drishyam and its Tamil remake return with a somewhat ordinary and simple film. There is a feel good factor in the film for most of the pre interval portion and from thereon it is an extended narration of the story that somewhat makes the flow of the film slow and boring as well.
Josootty by nature is a God fearing man, very good at heart and down to earth. His role model is his father. The film portray Josutty's life from childhood to an age around forty. Various phases of his life and the people who pass through his life and who influences the character molding of the man is narrated in the movie.

Performance
Entrusting the character of Josootty in the hands of Dileep was a safe bet as the actor has portrayed the role with ease without making it look a dull one. There are two female leads with Rachana getting the lion's share of the screen presence in the first half. The baton is handed over to Jyothi Krishna in the second half. In my view both were equally good in their respective roles.
Noby and Saju Navodaya are the men in charge of the comic department. Along with Dileep, they made sure that the funny side of our bone is tickled on a frequent basis.The rest of the star cast include Suraj Venjarammoodu, Saju Navodaya, Sasi Kalinga, Sunil Sukhadha, Sudheer Karamana, Chembil Ashokan, Nobi, Krishna Prabha, Vijayakumari etc are good in their roles.
Technical Backbones
All credits to cameraman Ravichandran for capturing the scenic beauty and picturesque visuals of both the local place as well as the foreign land. Editing is fine while music by Anil Johnson is pretty good with some fine songs to the credit of the movie.
Jayalal Menon pens the story. Rajesh Varma has written the screenplay and dialogues. The team has beautifully portrayed the life of Josutty, and his transition from a villager to an NRI. The first half of the movie is filled with some comical elements; which turns out a little artificial at certain points. Overall, the first half is entertaining. The movie gets back to the track when it reaches the interval, and the second half is more cinematic.
Songs and background score are composed by Anil Johnson. Santhosh Varma pens the lyrics. The song Mele Mele perfectly sinks in with the narration, while the rest are just okay. The perfect background score makes the movie soulful.
Bottom Line
Don't watch it expecting the Drishyam magic, its just a simple loveable family story, doesn't have any thrills and suspense to offer. Watchable for the first half that worked mainly for coolness, fun and some sentiments. A shorter second half would have definitely helped the movie to a great extent.

Rating : 7 / 10
