only play but no replay
31 March 2011 | by AthulpowerSee all my reviews

Lal as a director cannot be compared to the Siddique-Lal duo who shook the malayalam cinema 1 or 2 decades back. His latest direction - Tournament doesn't live up to the expectations and no wonder why it was a bomb at the box office. 90 percent of the cast are debutants but it do contain some common figures like Saleem Kumar and Siddique. It is about a group of young cricketers who sets out their journey from the city of Kochi to Bangalore to participate in a selection camp for the upcoming APL (Fictional tournament based on IPL). Vishwanathan ( Fahad Fazil) is the leader of the pack and Usman is the joker or somewhat the funniest one. They miss their flight due to a bomb scare and opts to travel by a lorry and other means to reach the destination. I would say that the film is heavily inspired from Memento and also the climax scene is a copy of the Kevin Spacey starrer Hollywood film "The Usual Suspects". The first part of the film seemed to be okay but the film lost its touch during the second part with some unwanted twists. It was not a good move from Lal as he had used a similar plot twist from the same family for his last 2 films. All in all, I found the film very boring and wanted to skip through the second half. I wish Lal would concentrate on his acting skills rather than directing films like these. Verdict - Don't go for it!
