My boss, the film which stars the Janapriyanayakan Dileep in the lead role, neither falls in to the category of"Mayamohini", nor "Mummy and Me". The film has two lead characters with entirely different tastes and tells the story with an IT background. The director Jithu Joseph who has done "Mummy and me" previously has come up with a different story treated in a different manner.
Manu Varma (Dileep) is a young IT professional who does like the life in a foreign country. He used to talk about his intentions of migrating to a foreign country to his friends and dear ones. He was appointed as the assistant to Priya (Mamtha) in Mumbai. The boss contrary to Dileep, is a young women who was brought up in Australia and always dreams of leading a normal life here. And one must say that she is arrogant too. So, as one can expect some usual Boss – Subordinate fight between them. Unfortunately, some Visa Problems made her situations worse. She was forced to migrate to Australia. Under these circumstances she took some bold decisions. She asks Dileep whether he could act as her husband. Though shows some hesitations at first, he agrees to marry her. Both of them move to kerala, to meet Manu Varma's parents. But, contrary to her believes, she starts loving the people out there. Then there follows some usual comic situations and with some predictable twists and turnings, the story proceeds.
The main highlight of the movie is none another than the presence of Dileep. As a young IT professional, with a slight tint of humor he steels most part of show. Some of the situations don't suit to your logic, but you would love to watch it in most parts. Mamtha as the arrogant and tough Boss did justice to her given role. She looked convincing in the role. But, one need note that, this is far from the Mamtha that we have seen in Kadha Thudarunnu or Arike. The rest of the cast too needs some mention. Mukesh in an extended cameo role as the boss of Mamtha and Sai Kumar as Dileep's father too excels.
Jithu Joseph, who is the maker of Mummy and Me, has dealt with a much softer theme this time. Though this one is not like his previous flick, it has its own moments. What makes us happy by seeing this film is that, unlike Dileep's previous films this movie has a decent story to tell. The director himself has written the script and except some lagging in the second half, it can be considered as a decent film. Thus Jithu Joseph needs special applause. The songs by Seijo John and M.Jayachandran are good to hear, so is the cinematograph by Anil Nair. The special addition of the song "Enthinennariyilla" was nice. Editor V.Sajan could have trimmed the content at least in some portions.
"My Boss" definitely offers some hilarious moments and keeps you engaged throughout. On the whole, this movie tells a story that we have heard somewhere. But the movie offers some excellent performances by Dileep & co, and a neat job by the director.
Verdict: Decent Entertainer
