Read the review round-up of "Kunjiramayanam" below:
Imagine a bunch of simpletons in a fictional village with their unrealistic adventures taking unusual twists — that is Kunjiramayanam in one line for you.
Kunjiramayanam is an entertaining film for sure, definitely one that belongs to the not-to-be-missed category.
Give your intellectual part a break and let Kunjiramayanam unfold. It is one good shot in the rom-com genre with a pinch of fantasy elements.
Basil Joseph directed Kunjiramayanam is a simple rustic tale bristling with spontaneous and imaginative humour. The leisurely paced film is an easy watch and is devoid of cinematic manipulations. It doesn't have a particularly awe inducing tale to tell but the narration does hold surprises galore.
Kunjiramayanam could be termed an experiment of sorts and the director has managed to convey a simple storyline without much fuss. It is a small film but has life in it.It is recommended for a detached viewing without too much scepticism. Kunjiramayanam is not meant to be taken seriously but is better than many of the serious movies of recent times.
