Kunjikoonan is an emotional and touching movie, which shows a romantic and sensitive relationship between two physically disabled people, candidly presented by Sasi Shankar.

Plot: Kunjikoonan directed by Sasi Shankar is about Kunjan ( Dileep), a physically challenged guy, running a telephone booth. He is respected and liked by all the people for his kindness. His only worry is that he won’t find a girl to marry, as many girls refuse to do so cause of his disability. Then Chembakam ( Navya Nair), a blind girl, enters and changes his life. They soon start developing a love for each other despite their disabilities. With “Dileep” playing a double role, the movie has another parallel story with a smart looking boy, Prasad (Dileep) who loves a girl named Lakshmi (Manya). The story then has many unfortunate events which take place. What happens to both the love stories? Watch this emotional love story to find out.

Analysis: 'Kunjikoonan,' directed by Sasi Shankar, is a modest movie. The acting by the lead characters is remarkable. The movie has fairly good screenplay and direction that could have been better. Navya as Chembakam, Manya as Lakshmi and Dileep playing a double role, have all pulled it off well. The technical aspects of the movies are appreciable, make-up by Pattanam Rasheed is something to talk about, and he’s done an astounding job with the hunchback and many other small details. Comedy element in the storyline is smooth. Songs written by Yusuf Ali and regulated by Mohan Sithara is reasonably striking. With all said and done this emotional and touching is worth a watch.

Star Performances: Dileep has carried himself well, by relating so closely to his role and making it seem as if the story were real. His performance with a hunchback throughout the movie is something to be appreciated. Navya, as a blind woman has also showcased her talent well. Cochin Haneefa, Salim Kumar, Bindu Panicker and Saikumar have all done justice to their respective roles.

What’s there?

1) Acting by all the stars is remarkable.

2) The comedy element blends well with this emotional plot and is to be appreciated.

3) Screenplay, make-up, and the overall plot are good.

What’s not there?

1) Some of the supporting role actors could have got more on-screen time and plot.

2) The cinematography could be better.

Verdict: Kunjikoonan, an emotional and unpretentious movie with good acting by stars, is worth the watch.
