Director: V.K. Prakash
Cast: Jayasurya, Kunchacko Boban
According to Wikipedia, this movie is "an uncredited remake of the 2000 Argentine film Nine Queens ". I haven't seen the original, but I'm sure this malayalam remake doesn't hold a candle to it. But since I watched Gulumaal without any preconceptions, I found it to be pretty entertaining.
I'd classify it as a slapstick comedy with a lot of unusual twists and a totally unexpected climax. Jayasurya plays an anti-hero character -- a con man with no conscience. Actually he's a villain, because he has no saving grace. But being a comical character played by Jayasurya, it's difficult to think of him as a villain. Kunchacko is pretty good as Jayasurya's partner. He is the foil to Jayasurya's character -- a con man with a conscience.
