Malayalam star Dileep's latest movie "Welcome to Central Jail" was released in 89 screens in Kerala on Saturday, Sept. 10. The comedy entertainer, helmed by Sundar Dass, stars Vedhika in the female lead role.

The movie marks the reunion of Dileep and Sundar Dass after a gap of 13 years. As the actor-director duo has delivered some hits -- "Sallapam," "Kudamaattam" and "Kuberan" -- in the past, the audience have high expectations from "Welcome to Central Jail" as well. The latest movie, which narrates the incidents that happen in the life of a few prisoners in Poojappura central jail in Thiruvanathapuram, is expected to create a laugh riot in theatres like most Dileep-starrers. The trailer and songs of "Welcome to Central Jail" have already impressed the audience.

Welcome To Central Jail -With a Mix of Good and Bad Comedies , This Festival Entertainer From Dileep - Benny P Nayarambalam - Sunder das Team is a Passable Movie. In spite of having a Very big star cast from the Humor Team of Malayalam Cinema , the movie fails to be a Laugh Riot which we all expect to be , after watching the trailer. This one lacks a Good story line and the songs were horrible . Only very few scenes will make you laugh. The actors did their job well especially Renji Panicker. Rating : 2/5 Found " King Liar " Better than this one :)

Speaking 4 myself,itzz a mediocre entertainer , though nt too bad. At best i would be rated it 2. 5/5. COMEDY-- is the main cynosure. all of dileepettan's comic timingzz,girirajan kozhi's counters,situational humour etc are enjoyable 2 a certain xtent..
a considerable amount of 'chali' jokes are there in the first half but not worth considering in the 2nd half.
1 thing I can promise most of them are not non veg homour, so safe to watch with family members
STORYLINE-- has, to be honest, nothing to boast about --The same old wine.overall a just watchable 'onapadam'

Below Average First Half

Malayalam Review 

Below Average First Half Poor Comedies & Low Standard Making. Slightly Better 2nd Half Usual Dileep Comedy Entertainer Predictable Story & Below Avg Direction. Comedies are Really Outdated. Dileep & Vedhika Done a Decent Perfo. Bo Verdict Depends On Family Audience. Anyway Not Recommended. 2.25/5

Movie no 5 : welcome to central jail... Started with lots of promise.. First half did have lots of hilarious moments...second half was kinda boringly melodramatic... Average movie... 2 stars !!!
