#meranaamshaji First half second half overall= okay/average. If you compare with #Nadirshah's previous outings AAA and KRR, one might find this as less engaging and less entertaining. P.S:The one striking aspect was the opening credit which had names along with pictures ;-)

#MeraNaamShaji A jus abt ok 1st half followed by a not so ok 2nd half.. Last 10 mins is ok.. Overall : An somewhat ok one time watch if u watch with no expectations.... Will have a decent run i guess coz it's summer vacation Baiju Santhosh was good..

#MeraNaamShaji Interval: A strictly average first half. Nothing went good for Shajis till now. Waiting for 2nd Half #MeraNaamShaji Review: Expected a lot from #AAA #KRR Director & Biju Menon - Asif Ali - Baiju team. But it was a Big Disappointing from #Nadhirshah & team. Except "Manasukkulle" song & 1-2 counters from Baiju, nothing is impressing. Below Average.

#MeraNaamShaji: Strictly a below average comedy flick with outdated story & poor comedy elements. Baiju & Biju Menon Asif Ali Better luck next time Dear Nadhirshah Ikka Rating: 1.5/5 NB: Strictly Personal
