Kammath and Kammath (2013) Malayalam Movie Review


Cast: Mammootty, Dileep, Narain, Karthika Nair, Rima Kallingal, Baburaj, Dhanush 
Director: Thomson K Thomas 
Producer: Anto Joseph

Rating: 3.0/5 

Kammath and Kammath, an action comedy, directed by Thomson K Thomas and starring Mammootty along with Dileep, Karthika Nair, Rima Kallingal among others, seems to be yet another disappointment in the cap of the superstar - Mammootty.

 Having promoted Kammath & Kammath as a mass entertainer, the film's script lets you down completely as it seems half baked without a strong plot. While the first half is bearable, the second half is painstakingly slow. However, it would be wrong to say that the film doesn't have any fun element in it. Those who are expecting some action packed element will not be disappointed. While Baburaj does a lot of action sequences, our 'ikka' is seen relaxing on top of the car in most scenes! Dance performances by Mammoootty ikka, Dileep, Rima and Karthika is very good. 

The film would have surely been a failure if not for Mazhavil Manorama, who have paid a whooping Rs 4.95 crore (US$0.9 million) for the satellite rights.


Kammath and Kammath narrates the story of Kammath Family, who speaks Malayalam with a Kongini Slang as they have migrated to Kochi from Goa during Portuguese invasion. The plot revolves around Kammath brothers and things that happen after the inauguration of a restaurant in Palakkad. Mammootty plays the role of the big brother Raja Raja Kammath, while Dileep plays the role of Deva Raja Kammath. Rima Kallingal portrays the character of Palakkad municipal commissioner while Karthika is her sister. Baburaj is seen as a loyal assistant of the Kammath family. The Kammaths relation with the sisters and the problems that follow forms the main storyline. 

Dileep steels the show with his excellent comic timings, natural expressions and perfect dialogue delivery. Baburaj is yet another treat to watch as he gives good support to Dileep in terms of comic timing and dialogues. Rima Kallingal has got a decent role and has done a good job and so has Karthika. Mammootty is good as usual, but fails to deliver a powerful performance. Dhanush is in a cameo role and is seen dream walking through the scenes
