Director: Vineeth Sreenivasan
Cast: Renji Panicker, Nivin Pauly, Sreenath Bhasi
After I watched the trailer of Jacobinte Swargarajyam, I was really intrigued. I knew from reading some previews that the story was about a son who took over the burdens of his family after something happened to his dad. I didn't know whether the dad had died, or if it was something else. Since I knew I wanted to watch the movie, I didn't want to ruin the element of surprise by checking out the plot details prior to watching the movie.
The first half of the movie definitely matched the energy of the trailer. The casting was superb. The chemistry between the family members was superb. It really felt like they were a real family. It was kinda weird to see Sreenath Bhasi doing such a morose, withdrawn character though. I am so used to seeing him in comic roles.
